France | Paris: October 15, 2018

October 14, 2018 On our way to Paris... Chilling in the old part of Strasbourg, wine and pastry tasting and checking out this stunning church. Things are a mix of French and German in this town straddling the border but we can feel we’ve truly entered France again! And yep we miss Germany...

Germany | Stuttgart : October 14, 2018

October 14, 2018 Where it all started, almost 100 years ago! A gorgeous and massive campus, and still growing as construction of a new building is underway. Lucky folk! Quiet on this Saturday. — checked in to Freie Waldorfschule Uhlandshöhe. Dang it. Must rent a better car next time. And...

Germany | Munich : October 13, 2018

October 12, 2018 Ok so this was cool. A castle nestled in the Bavarian mountains by many lakes and resembling the Walt Disney one that tried to copy it. Too bad a lot of it was being renovated but overall, definitely had that fairy tale castle feeling. — checked in to Schloss...

Switzerland | Lucerne : October 12, 2018

October 12, 2018 Charming (also could be felt as stuck up and meh) town overall. The older part has its appeal, the fondue was relatively tasty but yeah... the Swiss... don’t know what to make of them. Definitely pretty on paper. Did try to make the most of it, the covered bridge was...

Switzerland | Montreux : October 11, 2018

October 10, 2018 Drive from Chamonix, France through some of the most picturesque vistas and landscapes towards Montreux, Switzerland. Crazy hairpin turns, vines growing grapes along mountain sides, sheer cliff drop offs. Fun! — checked in to Martigny, Valais. Lovely Montreux lakeside and...

France | Chamonix: October 7-10, 2018

October 6, 2018 - Troyes (enroute to Chamonix) Boy did Paris kick our ass yesterday! Never mind the fact that our airliner went bankrupt, but our short time in Paris was an adventure. 1. Kaelen gets pushed around by an aggressive woman while trying to get on a train 2. Penny almost didn’t...

Japan | Tokyo: March 27-April 5, 2018

March 26, 2018 Got in this evening, and went right away to explore and grab dinner! So excited to be in Tokyo! It was quite the trip getting to the apartment. We couldn't get wifi so we asked a group of young folk hanging outside the subway stop to look up the address to our apartment...

Japan | Kyoto: March 23-26, 2018

March 23, 2018 In Kyoto! Interesting journey through busy Tokyo and the Shinkansen (bullet train, which we actually caught the wrong one first but people were very helpful and so caught the right one at the next station), vending machines galore (with ramen), old shrines, cherry blossoms...

South Korea | Seoul: March 18-22, 2018

March 18, 2018 Here! A long journey from the airport to the apartment. Glad there's a 24 hour convenience store right in the apartment building. Our AirBnb apartment is so slick! From the way we unlock the apartment to the auto lights... impressive. March 19, 2018 Shopping! Eating...
