Visiting St. Louis: The St. Louis Arch and Courthouse

For our weekend in St. Louis, Missouri we knew we absolutely had to visit the St. Louis Arch! Along with the Arch, there’s the historic courthouse directly in front of it that you can see in the same trip. You can purchase tickets to visit the arch online or at the courthouse but even if you…

Anheuser-Busch Brewery: St. Louis, Missouri

We spent this past weekend exploring St. Louis, Missouri and one of our favorite stops was at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery. We learned that they had a few longer tour options for a price or complimentary guided tours throughout the day lasting about an hour. Short on time we opted for the shorter free option.  We had…

The Baths of Budapest, Hungary

If you’re visiting Budapest, one thing that you have to do is spend some time at one of the many thermal baths! Halfway through our two-week Eurotrip this spring, we arrived in Budapest, Hungary, and our relaxing visit to the baths could not have come at a better time after all of the walking we’d…

Two Days in Vienna, Austria

On our Eurotrip this spring, we spent two days in Vienna! From Zagreb, Croatia, we took the early train (and the only one of the day) arriving in the afternoon and headed to our hotel first. We stayed along the Danube river, a little ways out of the city center but right on the metro,…

The Palaces of Vienna, Austria

In our two days in Vienna, we noticed that there are two things you hear about a lot, the first was music, which I wrote about in my previous post. And the second is the Habsburgs, the last royal family of Austria, who ruled until the early 1900s. All over the city, you’ll hear about…

Visiting Vienna, Austria: A City of Music

The second leg of our Eurotrip took us to Vienna, Austria and if you spend any time in the city, you’ll quickly realize (if you didn’t already know) that it is a city of music! We only spent two full days in Vienna, but managed to fit in a few musical must-sees… The first musical…

Hiking at Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

One of my favorite days of our whole trip was the one we spent hiking at Plitvice National Park! On our last full day in Croatia, we rented a car to drive from Split, a city on the coast, back to Zagreb the capital city, stopping on our way at Plitvice. Total drive time was…

The Charming Town of Trogir, Croatia

When we left Zagreb to head out to the coast of Croatia, we opted to stay in the charming little town of Trogir. We had taken the last flight out of Zagreb earlier that evening so we arrived into the Split airport around 11pm. It was just a 15-minute drive from the airport to Trogir…

A Day in Split, Croatia

From Zagreb, we headed out to the beautiful coast of Croatia! We flew into the Split airport, but opted to stay in the charming town of Trogir rather than in the city of Split. We only had one full day on the coast so we took the bus into Split and spent most of the…

7 Fun Facts about Zagreb, Croatia

In my first post about Zagreb, I described how we used the short time we had (just 24 hours!) to explore the city. Along the way we learned some interesting facts about the city that I didn’t manage to fit in that post so thought this city deserved another one! Here are 7 things I…
