Prague- Ice cream and Beer

Contiki Eastern Road
Days 2-3

Oh Prague, let me tell you about Prague! What a phenomenal city- lets just start with that. As you leave Germany, you spend a few hours on route to Dresden where there is a lunch stop along with a quick moment to do some site seeing, or if you’re really keen, eat at a “Canadian” restaurant. Another few hours on the bus pass by and you arrive in Prague. The first night is started off with a walking tour around the city to get your bearings, which then is followed by a nice dinner…

BERLIN- Walls and Sausages

Contiki Eastern Road
Berlin- Days 1-2

For me Berlin was a little bit of a daze. My flight was long and unusually uncomfortable, so when I got into Berlin it was about 1pm- same day as the tour started. Not a whole lot happens on the first day. If you get in early, or the day before,  then do a run around of the city and get your footing. Otherwise, the day has is a group meeting, followed by getting to know your group with a little mingling session.

The first dinner is always a little bit…

My very first CONTIKI!

So this summer, I did something I wouldn’t normally do. I went on my very first Contiki tour! Now, now; I know what you’re thinking. What’s wrong with that? The answer- ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Prior to this trip, I would just say; “it’s not really my style”. Reality: It is a 18-30 something group trip with about 50 likeminded people, in that age category, that pack as many sights, as many experiences and as many bars as possible into your selected period of time (or you can do as little of that as you want- but then what’s the…

So it’s not a big secret that food and travel go hand in hand. One of my favourite things about traveling is eating all sorts of great, unusual and delicious foods.  I really will try anything and rarely will I dislike something. I can embrace the bizarre when it comes to my appetite, and after all, travel many times is just that- bizarre. It is also probably why I always come back 10 pounds heavier.

 

With that said and I will continue to say this, I love many things about Iceland; the people, the culture, the sights, the ponies- all…

TOP TEN: Random things you don’t know about Iceland

Blue Lagoon

Iceland is such an interesting place, so many quirks and filled with character. I learned so many random things about this little country, and here are top ten random things you don’t know about Iceland.

NUMBER ONE: Elves

This is my personal favourite and I can’t hold out till the end. Elves. Icelanders love elves. And not in a fantasy creature type of way: as in, most people in Iceland truly believe in elves. Now the official number of people seems skewed from one source to the next, but according to various sources, 60-80% of…
