Summer Travel 2017

Over the summer, Matty and I traveled to a number of places including: Romania, Macedonia, Kenya, Malta, and Greece. I hope that my travels inspire others to explore the world. With all the “bad” the media exposes us too, I think it is important to see the beauty. Travel broadens my mind. I get to share new experiences with others. I get to see how the people of the world live. To see the similarity and the differences of...

Next stop was Rome where the temperatures reached 106. We...

Biking the Danube, Passau to Linz

Matty and I took a bike ride from Passau, Germany to Linz Austria. It took us a full day to do. As you can see from the pics below, it wasn’t an easy task for a couple that hadn’t been riding recently. Matty needed a few breaks in the fetal position and my butt is still chapped 2 weeks later. Would we do it again? Absolutely. The towns we went through were amazing. We stumbled across a wine festival in Linz. The views we...

Cheb & Pilsen, Czech

As many of you know, we are spending a short time in Czech Republic before moving to Italy. We spent some time exploring the local areas which includes the city of Cheb and Pilsen (think beer). The best beef rib I have EVER had was at Purkmistr. This place also brews their own unfiltered and unpasteurized beer. This gives the beer a slightly cloudy look. The dark (black) beer was a treat but like most dark beers, a small amount was...
