The Spanish Steps

The Spanish Steps

The only morning I spent in Rome was rushed. Between trying to figure out how to buy the metro tickets and figuring out what we want to see within a two hour period, things were done in haste. The streets were nearly dead and the […]

The Canals of Venice

The Canals of Venice

I fell in love with Venice instantly, even in the short amount time that I got to visit (less than 24 hours). We took a water taxi into the city, had enough time to explore, have lunch and dinner, then took another taxi out of […]

Venice, Italy

Venice, Italy

Venice is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve gotten to visit on my European Tour. It is a tie between Budapest and Venice – I can’t really decide between them! These photos do not even begin to capture the beauty of everything surrounding me. […]

The Grand Canal

Banská Bystrica, Slovakia

Banská Bystrica, Slovakia

I stopped for lunch in the Námestie SNP of Banská Bystrica, Slovakia. The last photo is of a memorial for the fallen during the Slovak National Uprising. The food was good, atmosphere was great and I’m very sad to admit that I wore leggings that […]

Krakow, Poland

Krakow, Poland

Krakow, or Cracow, is the oldest city in all of Poland (and is located on the Vistula River in the Lesser Poland region). Wawel Castle is the main highlight when visiting the city, but the charm of the city streets lures me in.  I ate […]

St. Stephen’s Cathedral

St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna, Austria is one of the most beautifully detailed Gothic buildings in all of Vienna. This is also where the Archbishop of Vienna is – fancy. It is located in Stephansplatz, Vienna which is also super close to Mozarthaus. We also […]

Schloss Schönbrunn

Schloss Schönbrunn

I felt like I was walking into a fairy tale when visiting the Schloss Schönbrunn, or Schönbrunn Palace. I took a lot of photos probably because it was the first day into the vacation, but also because it was so beautiful.  This palace is an […]
