We have been in Greece for a few weeks now (Thessaloniki, Athens, Rhodes, Lindos and Kos) but I actually purchased this Grecian inspired dress in Vienna, from the most non-Greek store imaginable.  A couple of friends and I ran around the city on our last day, frantically looking for things to buy. The one item on my list that day was a light coloured flowy dress that I can easily throw on during the day or out for a nice dinner in Greece. After no luck at all of the European stores and boutiques, I turned to the always reliable and affordable H&M. This dress was perfect for the hot summer days and nights on the islands (it doesn't really ever cool off here) and I plan on styling it a bit differently with some sexy heels and a blazer once I'm back to (colder) Canada. I do kind of wish I had held off until we reached Rhodes and Lindos to purchase a dress because they had some very authentic ones there, but I did end up buying a few other nice Grecian things that I plan on wearing on the blog soon! Keep checking back in the next couple of weeks for those outfit and travel posts. As always, thanks for reading!

These pics were snapped outside of our cute hotel in Rhodes City.


Ich bin ein Berliner!

After Vienna, we were off to Berlin. DJB was in charge of taking pictures. He took a total of 12.

We were only in Berlin for 3 nights, which was definitely not enough! Apparently Berlin is 8 times the size of Paris. That's a lot of ground to cover. On the surface, it's not the most beautiful city (it was basically destroyed after WW2), but you never find your self thinking it's ugly. It's super cool and really casual. Oh, and it's about 8 times cheaper than Paris :)

Of course you can't go to Berlin without visiting the remnants of the Berlin wall.
...and the Brandenburg Gate! Michael Jackson dangled his baby in a hotel right behind here.

Berlin is haunted by it's Nazi past, but they don't hide it. This is the Jewish Holocaust memorial.

This is another part of the Berlin Wall near to where we were staying.

Berlin! I'll be back...so that DJB can take some pictures.



After Prague we headed by van to Vienna. The drive wasn't as scenic as I hoped. We passed what seemed to be a sex outlet that had strip joints and burlesque houses which was very strange. Austria is now one of DJB's favourite countries because it's one of the few that produces good wine and makes good beer. Oh, and it's surprisingly affordable! We started of our first afternoon in Vienna by drinking mimosas on a boat!

Vienna is probably the cleanest and safest city in Europe, but it's still home to some great street art.

If you go to Austria, be prepared to eat all kinds of sausages! This is a currywurst!

We went to a "concert" that had classical music, ballet, and opera all in one show. It was extremely touristy and corny but still worth it!

Vienna was the last stop of our little group trip :(

This may or may not have been taken from the table of a seniors tour group after they left 90% of the prosseco untouched :)

From the capital of one Germanic city to another, next stop...Berlin.



Our first trip post Paris took us to Prague. Two good friends joined us on our "honeymoon" which made this trip that much better.  The city has a reputation of being beautiful and cheap, both of which are true! If you go to Prague, make sure to see its famous clock. Every hour you can see (along with a million other tourists) the most underwhelming show in Europe :)

Sandwiched between Germany and Austria, the country is heavily influenced by it's Germanic neighbours, and this is certainly true for the food and beer. By the way, the beer term "Pilsner"is derived from the word Plzen, which is a city in the CR.

We stayed at a "party hostel", it was great except I felt really...really old.

We found a hidden roof top patio where you can get the best view of the city. A glass of Prosseco was only 4 euros. We returned again at night but unfortunately the place was overrun by spiders, but so was everywhere else. Why are there so many spiders in Prague??? Next stop...Vienna!
