The Prague Astronomical Clock.

Located on the side of Old Town Hall within Old Town Square, at Staroměstské nám. 1, 110 00 Josefov, Czechia, the Prague Astronomical Clock is a must-see for anyone visiting the city. Not only is it beautiful, but it’s also incredibly historic, as it’s the oldest working clock still in operation - ✨anywhere in the …

The Powder Tower of Prague.

An impressive Gothic tower separating Prague’s New Town from Old Town, the Powder Tower is a sight to behold. It was our introduction to Old Town Prague once arriving via train, and it certainly set the stage for what was to come. We stayed at The Hotel Paris Prague (highly recommend), which was only approximately …

The Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague, Czech Republic.

An incredibly old, sacred place, the Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague is a sight to behold. Located within the Jewish Quarter, it was the main (and only) cemetery the city’s Jews were allowed for centuries. It’s one of the largest of its kind in Europe, used between the first half of the 1400’s until 1786. …

Bergen, Norway: City of Seven Mountains. 

One of Northern Europe’s oldest port cities and on the west coast of Norway, Bergen was the last city we visited in Scandinavia. It is the second-largest city in Norway, coming in only behind the capital, Oslo (pop: 702,543), with a population of around 287, 888 (2022). It puts into perspective how sparsely populated Norway …

Salisbury Cathedral: Home to the Magna Carta and World’s Oldest Working Clock.

A beautiful and massive church, Salisbury Cathedral was a delight to visit. I really loved the gothic-style architecture, which this cathedral offers up on a golden platter. In fact, it’s regarded as one of the best examples of “Early English Gothic” architecture in all of England. It sits in the city of the same name, …

Edinburgh, Scotland: All Hail Mr. Boots.

If I were asked, “Name the top five cities you’d like to live in for at least a year”, Edinburgh would make the list. I’d also put Edinburgh in the top three cities we visited in Europe. There’s just something special about the Gothic architecture combined with the vibrance of the city, and of course, …

Hellesylt, Norway: A Whimsical Fairytale.

Per usual, my outfit choices during this time period were... embarrassing. 🤦🏻‍♀️ But also comfortable! 🙃 Of the four Norwegian cities/villages we visited, Hellesylt was hands down my favorite. With a population of 258 as of 2018, it’s only slightly larger than Geiranger. However, there are around 590 people, total, when you count the residents …

Geiranger, Norway: Trolls and Mountains.

One of the most beautiful little villages I’ve ever seen, Geiranger is extremely small, with only around 200 to 250 residents calling it home year-round. And yet… it’s the 3rd most popular cruise ship port in the entire country of Norway, generally coming in behind Ålesund and Bergen. It’s located in the Sunnmøre region of Møre og Romsdal county, …

The Historic Edinburgh Vaults (Scotland).

Our guide giving her first history lesson. Hands down one of the best experiences of my life, these underground tunnels are incredibly famous in the paranormal community and a big prize for ghost and history lovers alike. Those familiar with my blog know I’m a fan of haunted places, as well as history, so combine …

Tallinn, Estonia: The Friendly Russia.

I freaking love Estonia. Out of the 9 countries we visited, I’d rank Estonia as number 2 (Norway is number 1 😍). The architecture, the people, the vibe; it was basically myself, personified into a country. I love history, and from the moment we walked up to the gates of the capital city Tallinn, I …
