I had to think a long time before writing this entry. We live in a time where "The Founding Fathers" are quoted to justify almost every point of view . So I had a lot of second thoughts before I sat down to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard in...
DrFumblefinger— A few days could be enough in Strasbourg itself, but if you want to tour the vineyards, I'd stay a week in the area. You could stay two nights in Strasbourg and then a night or two in Riquewihr and beyond. And I'd suggest renting a car to go at your own pace. For my next trip, I will plan at least full week in the region because I want to stop at the vineyards and visit more of the museums. And don't forget Chateau Haut Koenigsburg.
My son, his girlfriend, and I spent four nights in lovely Strasbourg. We picked a perfect apartment right on Quai St. Nicholas (5 minute walk into town), which you can check out on booking.com here . Our friendly hostess (who speaks...
Hi Ava : ) You are going to love Krakow. The locals are very friendly, the scenery is beautiful, and the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Enjoy your visit. I hope you share your adventures (along with pictures) with TravelGumbo upon your return...I (and our entire TravelGumbo family) would love to see them. By the way, if you have time, take a day to visit the Wieliczka Salt Mine, and another day to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration/Extermination camps. Your best bet to see...
Thanks Ottoman! I'm really excited to hear all of the positive things about Krakow. We have already booked a tour at Auschwitz, but I don't know if we will have time to visit the salt mine (although it looks amazing). I'd be happy to share some photos.
The Salt Mines are one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. It would be a shame to miss seeing them. When you are in town you will see this building. It's the Rail Station. The salt mines are just a few stops along the line. 10 minutes. So easy to find. So worth it.
In the main square, school children perform dances and theatre for passers by. Adults perform parades and fashion shows. During the summer when I was a visitor there was something on display most afternoons. Krakow is a beautiful city to walk around.
Must be 15 years since I walked most of your journey through Boston. The mix of old and new buildings are fascinating as you walk the city. Many of the older buildings look like they have shared an architects plan with older buildings here in Liverpool UK. I do find it odd that 5 Bostonians were stoning a single Redcoat then you call them unarmed ! A situation that would bring about the same end results today. I enjoyed your Blog. Thanks.
