Christmas Vacation 2015 – Day 12, 13, 14, & 15

BERLIN – Days 12-15 I had big plans for Berlin, but none of them happened.. The city was PACKED for New Year’s Eve. We spent our first night just walking in the shopping area around our hotel finding food. Found an excellent and cheap pizza/pasta place. Haven’t had seafood pasta in forever, and this place…

Christmas Vacation 2015 – Day 10 & 11

DRESDEN We took a detour leaving Prague towards Dresden. We decided to go to the Tri-Border of Poland, Czech Republic, and Germany.

Cochem, Germany

I cannot say enough good things about this small town. I found this town on a list of Best Medieval Towns in Europe, and European Castles that put Disney Castles to Shame. It is two hours from home, so we left Friday right after school and work. I had a plan to walk around the…

Paris

PARIS!!! Just to say we are driving distance to Paris for a WEEKEND is amazing to say! We left Friday right after work/school with our friends we met out here, and drove down. I found a campground a twenty minute drive to downtown Paris, so it would be easy to get there. Campground was a…
