Istanbul, Turkey

  • Turkish Flag
    Constantinople/Istanbul -- so much history, so little time to explore this European/Middle Eastern blend of a city.

Lucerne & Zurich, Switzerland

  • Zurich
    Fresh air. Gorgeous views. Hiking in the Swiss Alps can even be enjoyed in February.

Brussels & Brugges

  • Canal View 4
    Gothic buildings and chocolate are the highlights of exploring these two cities.

Athens & Santorini, Greece

  • Heavenly sunset
    Traveling for a friend's wedding, we made the most of our one-week Greek adventure.

Emerald Ireland

  • Conner Pass scenery 2
    Six days on these lush, foggy hillsides was not enough to see everything we wanted.

New Year's '07 in Madrid

  • Arco de la Victoria
    We celebrated New Year's Spanish style -- eating grapes in Madrid's Puerta del Sol.

Vienna, Austria

  • Wein Reisenrad
    Frohe Weihnachten! For Christmas, we drove to Vienna, Austria, to explore this huge, historic city and browse the best of its ten Christmas markets.

Moscow & St. Petersburg

  • Folk dance performance
    Three days in Moscow. Then three days in St. Petersburg. Russia was an interesting adventure.

Venice

  • St. Mark's Basilica
    We spent four days exploring the architecture and art of Venice.

Bernkastel-Kues Wine Festival

  • Landshut Castle Fireworks
    The Bernkastel-Kues Wine Festival is held every year during the first weekend of September.

Berlin

  • Kaiser-Wilhelm-Ged√§chtniskirche
    In July, we took a train trip from Kaiserslautern to Berlin for a weekend. I highly recommend using the train for transport. It made our trip more relaxing, and we could focus on seeing the great historic sites of the city.
