Overnight in Frankfurt: Exploring Römerburg

After a long travel day; made especially unique by the man sitting next to us who meowed during the entire duration of the flight, we finally made it to Germany. With 6 hours of daylight and a short overnight in Frankfurt, we only had the afternoon to check out the city….

Kaleici and the Harbor

We have already seen some of Kaleici since it’s close to hour hotel, but today we went out with the full intention of exploring every bit of Antalya’s Old Town. If your hostel or hotel is near the tram, we found that this is the easiest way to get to…

Karain Cave | Antalya

On the same day we visited Termessos, we also decided to check out Karain Cave. It’s the perfect side trip if you’re already going to be visiting Termessos because it’s only 20 minutes away. There are over 400 steps up to the cave but they’re pretty shallow so it wasn’t…

A Day Trip to Termessos

Today we set out for Termessos, the ruins of an ancient city which sits over 3,000 feet up Solymos mountain. You can get here pretty easily with public transportation but we still had our rental car and it was quicker and easier for us to drive. If you decide to take…

Rosendals Trädgård, Djurgården

Yesterday we spent the day walking around Djurgarden and experiencing what this unique island has to offer. A large part of the island is mainly forest with a bunch of walking trails throughout, so our plan was to cover the entire perimeter. In one area, we saw these three mushrooms growing out…

The Abba Museum

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from spending time in Sweden, it’s that this country is very proud of ABBA. Today Nick and I took the ferry to Djurgården where the ABBA Museum happens to be and we spent a considerable amount of time inside. Thanks to my grandma I’m a big fan of…

Gamla Stan & Nick’s Stockholm Concert

Yesterday I finally met up with Nick! His train got in from Malmo around 2pm and we checked into his hotel. For the past few days, I’ve been a bag lady. I’ve stayed in a different hostel/hut each night and even though I travel light, it’s been so annoying carrying my…
