Last, But Certainly Not Least

Last, But Certainly Not Least

I've made it! Three months completed in Europe and I've finally hit my 14th country and 25th overall. Following my epic ride share from Ljubljana, I reached the capital of Hungary and quickly began my final three days in Europe before departing for Asia for the next five months.

The Most Underrated Country in Europe

The Most Underrated Country in Europe

There's a small little country buried just south of the Austrian Alps and just north of the dense forests and stunning beaches of Croatia which often is overlooked by travelers from across the globe. Never in a million years would I have predicted a country in former Yugoslavia to become one of my all-time favorite countries to visit, but alas, it is. Slovenia has got to be one of the most underrated and absolutely incredible countries I've ever been able to visit, and I of all the countries in Europe I've seen, this one takes the cake with having something for everyone!

Two weeks in Croatia

Two weeks in Croatia

Croatia has recently (at least in my eyes) become a hot destination for travel and understandably  so! The coastline is speckled with over a thousand islands and the interior is filled with gorgeous mountains and waterfalls.

Revisiting Denmark

Revisiting Denmark

I've visited Denmark before, but my time spent in Copenhagen last year was abbreviated, in that the only weekend I was meant to spend in the city I visited Munich instead. So as much as I want to say I've "seen" Copenhagen before, I really can't. This was my chance to really see the city and get a feel for what it's all about.

What Makes Prague Great

What Makes Prague Great

Unlike Berlin, Prague lives up to its expectations of being one of the best cities to visit in all of Europe. Located smack in the middle of the continent, this city represents everything that is Europe: old buildings, friendly people, and pleasant landscapes. Prague has surpassed my expectations and become one of my favorite cities I've ever visited.

Why I was unimpressed with Berlin

Why I was unimpressed with Berlin

Time and time again throughout my trip I've continued to hear that "Berlin is an AMAZING city to visit." I didn't find this to be the case. I've traveled more through Germany than any other country in Europe, and in every other German city I've been to I've felt welcomed by the people. Germans, who I feel have a very poor reputation back home, have always been friendly and warm to me during my visits. I've general dismissed this stereotype. Berlin, though, did not meet my expectations.
