A month in Budapest {The Paris of the East}

The baths ended up actually not being great. They were mostly populated by fat old people and they were just really crowded. And the changing rooms and locker room areas were just kinda gross. I don’t know. All in all it was more like a public pool, which I suppose makes sense. It wasn’t like a hot spring in the middle of the woods or something.

Making our Home for the Month in Perugia, Italy

For the first few days we were sort of walking around like zombies - as I'm sure most would feel having "moved" to a city you'd never been to, to occupy an apartment you'd never seen before. We were just getting the lay of the land. Who has the best coffee. Who has the cheapest cup of decent tea. The freshest pastries. The best dinner deal. Where are the free wifi spots. The good gelato.

A Food Lovers Fucking PARADISE (Margate, U.K.)

By chef I mean magician because this thai food wasn't like anything else I've ever put in my mouth. I had a creamy peanutty sauce with chicken over coconut rice and Kris had a fried rice dish that was layered with so many amazing flavors that shot off like fireworks in your mouth. The majority of the dishes were 6 pounds too. A goddamn steal.

Breakfast in London ~ Dinner in Dublin ~ Buffet in NYC {Days 32 & 33}

Today we had an easy afternoon flight from Dublin. We landed in NYC at 6pm and weren’t too messed up from jetleg — it’s easier going this way and with the shorter flight. It was 6pm NYC time and only 11pm Dublin time so we weren’t totally fried yet. From the airport we took a train to Grand Central Station and had dinner at our favorite buffet around the corner.

Up at the Ass Crack of Dawn: Stockholm to Germany {Day 25}

The flight was easy, and it was so nice to arrive in Germany with a friend to pick us up from the airport. Very relaxing to not have to figure out a bus or a train or directions or anything. We were staying with Kris’ friend, Olaf, and his wife, Janina, and their two daughters. I had never met them before, but they were instant friends. Some of the nicest, warmest people you’d ever want to meet.

Breakfast in Vernazza ~ Gelato in Milan ~ Asleep in Copenhagen {Day 21}

We arrived in Milan and started wandering around. It was such a bullshit city. Everything was dirty and there was tons of awful graffiti everywhere. Everyone was rude, there was tons of traffic and it just looked like any other random city. There was nothing special about Milan.
