the romantic’s #LTeuropa highlights

Psh, you didn’t think I was going to let the wino re-live her favorite #LTeuropa moments without diving into my own, did you? Alas, after reading her post, I realized… our favorite moments overlap, like, a lot. This probably shouldn’t surprise you, but I was hard pressed to come up with things I loved more than the wine, the road trip and the reunion. But then I remembered: I spent two weeks in Europe with the hubs and two of our best friends. It’s actually harder to narrow down my highlights because really, pretty much everything was a highlight. So, along with everything the wino said, here are just a few more of my favorite…

where to sleep in prague: a somewhat comprehensive guide

Easy? Perhaps. We took an early morning train and didn’t have to switch trains or routes anywhere along the journey.

the #LTeuropa reunion: where we laid our heads to sleep

As much as we’d love to be all luxury all the time, we’re no dummies. We adore laying our heads down on a feathery cloud as much as the next girl! But, unfortunately, we kinda adore our meager savings accounts more. Though our most recent reunion adventure took us to some amazing places, we couldn’t have done it without our signature travel move: the high/low accommodation mix. Should you find yourself planning your own holiday in Budapest, Bratislava, Austria or Prague, know this, friends: it can be done on a budget, but you don’t have to sacrifice comfort! Budapest Night 1: The Four Seasons Gresham Palace We have two rules when it comes to booking accommodations.…
