During our month-long trip around the Balkans, we visited five countries. We got to try McD’s at four of them. On the way into Slovenia from Croatia, we did a slight detour for lunch. Continue reading Find Out What We Tried At McDonald’s In Slovenia!
I came across a UNESCO-Protected Spar Supermarket on Atlas Obscura!
During our first day in the city, it was pretty hot out. Around mid-day, we were in need of some cold beverages so we headed off to find the Spar. Continue reading This Spar Supermarket In Split, Croatia Is UNESCO Protected, Kind Of…
These were both very memorable experiences so when Kim came across the Falconry Center in Dubrava, Croatia, we had to visit! Continue reading A Visit To The Falconry Center in Dubrava, Croatia!
I pinned a few places in the capital Ljubljana for us to consider trying.
While walking around during our first day in search of one of the shops, we came across Pop’s Place, a restaurant which serves Neapolitan Pizza. Continue reading Finding Neapolitan Pizza Excellence At Pop’s Place- Ljubljana, Slovenia
As we got closer, we noticed that the floor in one area was very wet! In a circular spot in the middle of Preseren Square, it was raining! We were tired and (briefly) a bit confused. Continue reading This Area Has Its Own Weather In Ljubljana, Slovenia!
Our plan for the first day was no real plan. We figured it would be best to wander around since we were arriving mid day and then get down to business the following day.
As we walked around, one of us noticed a pixelated tile mosaic from our favorite street artist, Invader! Continue reading Searching For Invader In Ljubljana, Slovenia!
While checking out the Mostar Sniper Tower (formerly a bank), I noticed something familiar or so I thought.
I spotted a restaurant named CFC, not to be confused with KFC. As we walked closer, I noticed the last C looked almost exactly like the Chick fil-A logo. Continue reading KFC or Chick fil-A in Bosnia and Herzegovina? No It’s CFC!
Each year I look forward to our end of summer break when we usually take one of our biggest trips of the year.
Last year we headed to the Balkans. It was the first time for us visiting this region of the world and we enjoyed our trip very much. We visited 4 countries (although one of them is a disputed territory)- Serbia, Macedonia, Kosovo and Albania.
After the trip, I knew that I wanted to go back to the area at some point. While considering places to go this year I kept thinking about last summer’s trip. I decided to look into the possibility of seeing 2-3 more of these interesting countries.
When I started to look into some ideas, I was happily surprised to find flights available using my AAdvantage miles to exactly where I wanted to go, although not on the exact dates. Continue reading Trip Planning: Back to The Balkans
During our flight to the Balkans, I was disappointed with the amenity kit that we received in Lufthansa Business Class. However, they more than made up for it during our flight home.
Kim, Lucas and I spent a chunk of our time, during an 8 hour layover in Frankfurt shopping for tracht (traditional German clothing). We were buying the tracht for our recent trip to Germany. The main purpose of our trip was to experience Oktoberfest in Munich. (I’ve been a little behind on posting about our trip but will get to that soon.)
Once we took our seats, Kim and I reached back to get our amenity kits. I expected the same, junky plastic case that we received during our flight to Serbia but it was different and an awesome surprise.
We’re heading to Germany in a couple of hours. Here is a post about one way we got prepared for Oktoberfest while still on another trip.
On the way home from the Balkans we had an eight-hour layover in Frankfurt. We planned to head into the city to kill a little time since neither of us had every been to the city before.
Kim and I did some reading about Frankfurt and neither of us came up with much to do. We figured at worst we could just wander around the city center and grab something to eat before heading back to the airport for our flight home.
Soon after, we came up with a plan- the perfect way to make good use of our time rather than just wander around.
