Krakow- Pierogies and Vodka

Krakow

Contiki Eastern Road
Days 10-11

Entry into the motherland! It has been about 10 years since I last stepped foot in Poland; I didn’t feel any sense of familiarity, other than maybe the language and the food. It was nice to be a visitor and experience the country from the perspective of a visitor. In my youth I had only visited very small areas of Poland where my grandparents had lived, so to visit a city like Krakow, really gave some wonderful insight to the country.

What a beautiful city it is. So pristine and with character, no…

What the Gnome?

One of the most fun things about travelling the world is discovering everything it has to offer.

Some trips are about hitting those essential world sites and wonders, some are about getting in tune with the culture, and some have none of that at all.

One of my favourite things about travelling is discovering all the quirks of any given area- as every city or country in the world definitely has its quirk.

On my last visit to Europe, when I was in Poland, not too far off from where my family lives is…

BUDAPEST: Ruin Bars and Sparties

Ruin Bar

After having such an amazing time in Prague, it was really hard to top it; but then came Budapest.

After Vienna, we took off in the morning with a stop for lunch in Bratislava, which is the tiny capital city of Slovakia, and famously portrayed in the movie “Eurotrip”. Which might I add, is very inaccurately portrayed at that. Although tiny, it is beautiful and charming. Not a whole lot to do on the exploration front, but still a pleasant stop on route to Budapest.

VIENNA- Schnitzels and Schnapps

Prater

Vienna was my least favourite stop of the trip. Nothing against Vienna though- it is fantastic in its own right- but when you have a line up of so many amazing cities, it just doesn’t quite measure up (my opinion only). Although the city was built with the intent of being a grand, beautiful city- and it is; somewhere along the way, it lost any sense of charm. It is almost too perfect, and too grand- to the point it seems artificial. Almost feels like a world pavilion at Disney World’s Epcot- Where they create a city to imitate…
