ONE MORE DAY!!!

Ahhhhhhhhhh! One more day until home!!!!! Craaaaaaaaaazy! It was a cold and wet day here today, but I went out for most of it! So go me! I went on a free walking tour this morning at 11am, that went until about 2:30pm and was wonderful, one of the better ones I’ve seen. This is…

Still tired :p but hello again from Paris

Bonjour! Today was a chill day so I don’t have much for you. Sorted through some pictures, got some work done, etc. Lovely to have Chere’s place to relax in, and it’s so close to everything around here it’s brilliant. I have, however, formulated a plan for the next couple days, so because you’re just…

Super tired hello from Paris

Bonjour again – this will be short and sweet! Arrived in Paris today via train from Marseille, was a very pleasant train ride – rainy morning, but was just a short walk from the hostel to the train so not a terribly big deal. Rode 1st class, which cost me all of an extra 5…

Bought the ticket home, almost time to say goodbye!

Good evening one and all, and welcome to another edition of whatever this is. Today was my last full day in Marseille, with my train trip to Paris ready to go tomorrow at 10:30am. It wound up being a rather lazy day, I really didn’t feel much in the mood for museums, and I find…

Awesomeness

Bonjour again! First full day in Marseille was fantastic – it’s a beautiful city and I had a fantastic day wandering around. Before I get into the gory details I wanted to mention, in case you haven’t seen it yet, the #SFBatKid story which is currently gripping the internet. If you haven’t seen it yet…



Bonjour from France

Hello, Bonjour, etc. I’m back in France! It’s lovely to be back – I flew in from Rome to Lyon and thoroughly enjoyed a few days there. It’s an absolutely lovely city, as soon as I stepped out of the metro at my stop near the centre of the city (Bellecour) my jaw dropped a…



Goodbye Italy, it’s been fun!

Well it’s been fun – today is my last day in Italy! For now. I left Bologna by train this morning to head over to Rome for the night – of course the sun came out nice and pretty (the only thing missing from my stay in Bologna) just as my train pulls out of…



What… is… happening?!

Yikes it’s been a while… so internet access the last week or so has simply sucked. In Warsaw it was only available in one spot, and it was annoying and slow. In Florence it was supposedly available, but was truly useless, and here in Bologna there is none! In Italy I’m on Vodafone which is…



krakow

Last day in Krakow!

And we’re back! Missed yesterday – fun day, went on a walking tour in the morning of the city, and then went on a 2pm walking tour of the jewish quarter of the city. Good guide, very informative. Beautiful city – wonderful history to it. If I had to guess, and based on what I’ve…



auschwitz

Experiencing Auschwitz

It was a little weird leading up to it, every person I talked to who I told I was going to Auschwitz today was a little uncertain what to say – “have fun?”, “enjoy?”, “good luck?”. I mean the purpose of going somewhere is typically to enjoy yourself, especially as you travel the world, but…
