Travel Month: October

Monday, November 3, 2014

Each month I like to reflect upon my monthly travel and explorations in my current city. I love remembering past trips and enjoy looking ahead to future plans. These monthly reflections help me to do just that.

This month has been a pretty good one full of more travel than usual. In addition to spending a few lovely weekends (it is freezing now in Vilnius!) exploring Vilnius streets and searching for more creative events and aspects of Vilnius. I checked out a few new cafes (perhaps I have a new favorite!) and drank my fill of coffee at a Coffee Conference. I enjoyed the autumn weather by walking through the oldest graveyard in Vilnius and taking a free walking tour around the city.

I also spent a weekend in Prague and enjoyed exploring the back alleyways. I ate way too much in Prague and I was amazed by the pure amount of food.

I just got back from a trip to Denmark and Sweden yesterday and I cannot wait to start sharing about that lovely trip. Denmark is probably my favorite places that I've visited in Europe (so far). I stayed in Copenhagen and made day-trips to Malmo and Helsingor. In Copenhagen I tasted a huge amount of licorice thanks to the licorice tour by Food Tours E.U. Helsingor was so lovely that I've started looking up jobs in the area...(can't hurt to try AmIRight?). I'll start posting about this trip next week.

    1. Hopefully these posts will fuel your wanderlust! I find that when I can't travel I'm drawn to books that introduce me to new places. Do you also like to read travel related books?

    1. I think you will love it. When you go make sure to get to Helsingor. I wish we had stayed over night there because it was such a cool place. J and I are talking about going back in the spring of 2016 we liked it that much.
