Greece

Thursday, October 31st For the past two decades, Halloween has been my favorite holiday. A marathon of classic thrillers and costumes, a party-worthy duo. Though I managed to stream “The Shining” with friends, the day-long cruise to Corfu, Greece killed the Halloween spirit. But I couldn’t complain. We were on a cruise ...

Antibes

No Suit, No Problem Ending our French exploration in Antibes, we tumbled out the bus exhausted Sunday morning. The views along the port was not as impressive as Nice and Monaco, though our perspective changed once we entered the village. The Antibes market holds several textile stands in front of the ...

Eze and Monaco

Scents, Sites, and Staples    Before departing for Eze, I withdrew money to purchase a cappuccino and the king of all pastries. Not quite a doughnut, not quite a croissant, this sweet loaf of bread filled with chocolate and cream was worth every calorie. I will never understand how the ...

Oktoberfest: Day 1

Lace Up Your Lederhosen After five anxious hours on the bus, we were ready to take over Oktoberfest. I ran off the bus with my pigtails in place and euros in hand, ready to buy a dirndl. About ten minutes from the train station, I walked into a costume store ...

Prague Castle

Castle Tour Arriving an hour later than our scheduled day tour, we were all eager to see the Prague Castle Saturday morning. Our tour guide, Ivan, was extroverted, funny, and rude. He hi-fived elderly tourists during our walk up to the castle and complimented an Asian woman on her Hello Kitty. ...

Venice

White Girl on the Run Dazed and confused, Kenzie wakes me up to ask when my bus leaves for Venice.  Me: “9, what time is it?” Kenzie: “8:45”   ….   Me: “S***!”   Panicking, shouting, and throwing on clothes, I asked Kenzie to message the trip leader, Tiernan, for ...
