Velkopřevorské náměstí, 100 00 Praha 1, Czechia
I didn't even know about the Lennon Wall until it was the one thing my friend insisted we do in Prague. I'm so glad we want. A ray of sunshine in an otherwise gray(ish) city, you can feel the positivity and hope raditating off its walls. It meant...

As soon as we touch down at the airport in Vienna my husbands asks when he'll have his "small Gulasch and small beer". This is his way of being part of a city that has been titled the most liveable city worldwide three years in a row. His choice...

Kegelgasse 36-38, 1030 Wien, Austria

Both times that I traveled to Vienna, I had dinner at Mini, a hungarian restaurant just outside of the downtown area, which is my favorite restaurant in the world (aside from Granville Moore’s in DC). The last time I went, I had duck on mushroom...
