Peak District

We drove up to our airbnb in Buxton after work Friday night (about 3.5hrs). We got in around 10pm and had some wine to cap off our night. Day 1 We had brekkie at our airbnb and then headed out around 10am to our “walk” for the day – Kinder Scout. I don’t really know…

2 Days in Northern Ireland

We had a night flight from London to Belfast and then about an hour drive to our Airbnb in Bellycastle (close to the Giants Causeway) where we went straight to bed! Day 1 We left our Airbnb around 9am and walked into town to find a place for breakfast. We found a nice bakery (Ursa…

4 Days in Palermo, Sicily

We arrived in Palermo around 9pm at night and decided to go out for a late night dinner (it is Italy after all). We only went about 5minutes from our airbnb but had a DELICIOUS dinner. Alyssa and I decided to split a pizza and ask the waiter for a recommendation. Apparently, pistachios are a…

Linderhof Palace & Dachau Concentration Camp

We didn’t have too many plans for the day besides make our way towards the Munich airport. We figured out Linderhof Palace was only about 15 minutes away from our hotel so we figured we would stop there on our way back. Linderhof was built by King Ludwig II and apparently inspired by Versailles (according…

Forestis Hotel, Eibsee Lake, & Oberammergau

We woke up to the “sunrise” in our cool suite at the Forestis. It was a bit cloudy so it was harder to see the Dolomites, but still was pretty! We had the biggest, most extravagant breakfast buffet! There was all the normal breakfast foods and a cheese and meat bar which also had salmon!…

Dolomites – Tre Cime & Forestis Hotel

Today was the day we finally got to stay in our fancy hotel! But first we wanted to get in a hike around Tre Cime since it is one of the most popular mountain ranges in the Dolomites. We arrived to the Tre Cime area around 9:30 to find (once again) the parking near the…

Dolomites – Lago Di Braies

We had a nice breakfast at our hotel then headed off to Lago Di Braies for the morning! Turns out you have to get there at 8:30 (at the latest) to get parking near the lake. We didn’t arrive until about 9:30, but thankfully got into the lot about 3miles from the lake before that…

Dolomites – Seceda

Another early morning to get up and go hiking! Seceda is probably one of the most insta-worthy places in the Dolomites so we picked a day of the week with good weather to go visit- and wow it was amazing!We took the cable car from the town up to Seceda, which took around 25minutes (and…

Dolomites – Alpe Di Suisi

The forecast for the day said nice morning with a rainy afternoon so we woke up early again and made our way to the Mont Seuc cable car that was about a mile from our airbnb. The nice thing about hiking in the Dolomites is that there are a ton of cable cars so you…

Dolomites – Lago Di Carezza

We woke up early to drive the rest of the way to the Dolomites. Our airbnb was a mini farm and the lady offered to bring by some freshly squeezed milk straight from the cow! I usually drink skim milk so wasn’t sure if I would like it, but it almost tasted like a melted…

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, & Italy

Well it’s not every day that you are in 5 countries in one day. But today was that day! We started the morning by driving to meet with Nate’s friend from college who lives in Southern Germany- Luis. We met at some waterfall area called Stuibenfall in Northern Austria. It was a bunch of mini…

Fussen

We arrived in Munich around 10pm, drove about an hour then crashed for the night. Our plan for the day was to drive to Fussen and hike around Neuschwanstein Castle (famous for being the inspiration for the Disney castle). Before driving too far, we stopped in a random town to have breakfast at a little…
