We spent 3 nights in Cesky Krumlov, a really small town in the south of the Czech Republic.  Since it’s small, there’s really not a ton to do there – which was perfect because we needed a little break.  We pretty much spent a few hours each day out walking around the town, and the rest of the time just hanging out at the hostel.  We stayed at a really cute & cozy little hostel called the Krumlov House.  The managers were two girls from New Zealand who were traveling around Europe but stopped there for a few months to make some money.  They were awesome, although a little tricky to understand sometimes (thick accents and goofy words – it’s harder than you’d think!).  There were also some really cool American visitors there, so we had a good time just hanging out with everyone.

Anyway, here’s a few photos from our time there… (more…)

I’ve been slowing down on the blog lately, I know.  It takes a bit of time and usually I enjoy it… but the last couple of weeks I’ve been appreciating my time off and relaxing a little more (in other words, being lazy).  So for those of you who are following along, here’s a quick update.  I hope to post more about these places later.

FYI, even when I’m not posting I usually keep the “Where are we now?” box on the right side of the page up to date, and every once in a while I update the map on the “Travel Plans” page at the top menu.  And if that’s not enough, join Facebook and add Ben and I to your friend list, we add things there occasionally too.

Cesky Krumlov (Czech Republic) – 3 nights in a hostel in this small medieval town.  We had a good time wandering the streets, and also hanging out with the hostel managers and guests.

See, I'm relaxing in Ceksy Krumlov Cesky Krumlov (more…)

Ben and I spent two nights in Prague, Czech Republic; just enough time to realize that it’s an amazing city, but hardly long enough to even scratch the surface.  Prague has really cool architecture, something I’ve heard before but I couldn’t have imagined without seeing it in person.  So far it rivals Paris on my list of beautiful cities in Europe.  Paris is a little softer and prettier, and Prague is a little more striking and edgy.
