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...

Baltics -Including Pig Tongue

After our cruise in Norway, we took a second cruise through the Baltics. This included Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Russia, & Estonia. I said Estonia last because of all of them, I was least excited about going. However, Estonia’s old town is marvelous. Cobblestone paths and narrow streets, cathedrals and on and on… You don’t need a map nor an itinerary to stumble upon such interesting things. Estonia is...

Norway & Friends Along the Way

In May, Matt and I took a few cruises. The first cruise was through Norway. We booked it 2 weeks before we it left. Norway is beautiful by boat. One of my favorite things to do was go out on the deck during sail in and sail offs. The fjords were AMAZING. I highly suggest if you want to go visit Norway, that you do so by boat. One of the cool parts about our trip is we get into port and see a RC boat that our friend Austin was working...
