Summer of 2016 trip to Europe.

Day 12, Sun 9/4: Going Home & Final Thoughts

0 Comment

[Started this Sunday morning in Berlin; finished it Monday morning at home.] Since we are going home to separate cities, we are of course on different flight schedules. Dan’s flight to London, then DC, then Raleigh, left at 7:05am. He left the hotel about 5am. For awhile I had planned on going with him and […]

Day 11, Sat 9/3: Berlin, Part 2

What a day. We packed a lot in and were pretty happy with it by the time we were done. The photo editing though is going to take awhile so who knows when this will go up! [I started at 10:50pm Berlin time Saturday night; continued in the morning at the hotel before, during and […]

Day 10, Fri 9/2: Potsdam and a bit of Berlin

0 Comment

Today was pretty light. We were both pretty tired and feeling the full effects of the prior 9 days. It’s shocking to me now to think that our first couple of trips were both 17+ days. It will be a long while before we do that again. Two weeks is definitely a good amount. We […]

Day 9, Thu 9/1: Berlin, Part 1

0 Comment

It’s not quite 5am on Friday morning as I start this. We got back to the room last night a little before 10pm, which is by far the latest we’ve been out the whole trip. The blog process is generally¬† 2-3 hours – one hour for photo prep, another 1 or 2 for writing. – […]

Day 8, Wed 8/31: Dresden, Part 2

It’s only 5:00 and we are done for the day, well sort of. We finished our agenda early and decided to continue with the “take it easy” theme we started the day with and return to the hotel and just relax a bit. So I’m getting an early start on the blog and Dan is […]

Day 7, Tue 8/30: Dresden, Germany

[Wow, this internet is so much faster than the one in Prague!…actually the one in Vienna, too…] We set the alarm for 6am, packed up again, headed down for breakfast a little before 7, and were out the door about 7:40am. These were photos of our room in Prague that I took last night. ¬†They […]

Day 6, Mon 8/29: Prague Part 2

0 Comment

We came back to the hotel early escaping a thunderstorm, but we were pretty much done with our day anyway. I thought “yay, I can get the blog up early and get to bed early.” Not a chance. We started with over 115 photos, and really only did 2 things! I finally got it down […]

Day 5, Sun 8/28: Prague, Czech Republic

0 Comment

Dan slept pretty good. I just slept OK – kept waking up – but wasn’t concerned about it because I knew it would be a light day and I could make up some sleep on the train. I’d set the alarm for 6:30 to avoid our timing missteps the day before. We packed first, then […]

Day 4, Sat 8/27: Bratislava, Slovakia

0 Comment

We each slept well and headed down to breakfast just after 7am. What started out as a leisurely morning thinking we had lots of time, ended up being a morning of bad timing and we missed trains and trams by minutes. All that to say: we didn’t get in to the city of Bratislava, an […]

Day 3, Fri 8/26: Vienna, Part 3

0 Comment

I slept much better last night, 8 hours total in two shifts but I’ll take it. Dan didn’t sleep as well but felt rested enough. We went to breakfast in the lounge and took our time; me reading while Dan was working some. We went down to the sauna area after before heading out. The […]
