Barcelona is Spain’s second most populated city and the capital city of the Catalonia community.

Hotel Das Tyrol – Art & Luxury in Vienna

Hotel Das Tyrol – Art & Luxury in Vienna

After fighting ... Read More »

Thanks to our wonderful ... Read More »

However, everything came together a few weeks ago and we’re ready to share! We are ... Read More »

Germany Travel Costs: Spending Breakdown

The goal for our RTW trip is to keep spending to under $100 USD/day. We were pretty excited for our trip to Germany, and not just because of the German sausage and beer we’d be consuming.

Netherlands Travel Costs: Spending Breakdown

Netherlands Travel Costs: Spending Breakdown

The goal for our RTW trip is to keep spending to under $100 USD/day. While $100 per day is our goal, we went into Europe assuming this was not really going to be realistic. We have been traveling through Asia and Africa, where prices are much lower than back home and $100 a day was a possibility. So, we did prepare ourselves for ... Read More »
