Budapest, Hungary Day #1

Before jumping right into Budapest and the 7-hour journey to get there, I feel like we need to rewind a little bit back to Prague. In my last European travel post I left off with my last night in Prague, spent at a few casual…

Take Me Out To The Ballgame

Let’s Go Mets! Let’s Go Mets! Let’s Go Mets! There’s a lot going on with last year’s World Series Champion runner-up team and I had the opportunity to see everything first-hand last week. With strong pitching, solid fielding and a batting lineup that left room…

Prague, Czech Republic Day #2

It had never occurred to me that zoos in different parts of the world would hold varying animals. In the United States I had been to zoos in New York and Washington D.C. and the animals they housed did not differ too much. Only when…

Chicken Tikka Masala with Coconut Rice and Kontos Naan

Being away from London for a few weeks has already made me nostalgic for the city and its food. I stumbled across a can of Tikka Masala sauce while in the grocery store the other day and decided that paired with Kontos Naan, it would…

Prague, Czech Republic Day #1

Barcelona, Spain Day #2

Choosing hostels to stay in while traveling abroad can become a hassle. Hostelworld.com ended up being my go-to website during the past five months and that is how I came across The Black Swan. The rating was great – understandably – as was the staff and…

Amsterdam, Holland Day #3

You can capture the essence of the Dutch people in the movement of the canals and the nature of the parks on the weekend. We were shocked by the Red Light District the previous night, because it was such a huge contrast from what the…

Amsterdam, Holland Day #1

Amsterdam, Holland Day #1

Something I’ve learned these past few months in Europe is that the cheapest way to travel is never going to be the easiest. At this point I have done just about every form of transportation – plane, bus, train, ferry – and when you include…
