Milan on a Whim, on a Budget

Milan Duomo at Night

Visiting Milan was an impulse, something tacked on after hours of price-hacking when booking our 2018 Eurotrip.

Alsace’s Picturesque Small Towns

Of our three days in Strasbourg, we spent one of them driving with our friends through the countryside: the route de vin.

What to Expect in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic

I’ve written recently about how small towns draw me in more than big cities. Karlovy Vary was no exception; I really enjoyed my time in Prague but I loved my visit to this small picturesque city in western Czechia. Read on to laugh at my ignorance and then find out more about this charming town.

Hotel Review: NYX Hotel in Prague

In the beginning stages of planning my recent Europe trip, deciding where we would physically be on which dates was somewhat stressful. Once everything clicked into place, however, it was easy to fill in the blanks, beginning with Prague. We flew into Czechia and kicked our trip off in style at the NYX Hotel Prague.
