Welcome to Edinburgh!

Edinburgh is perhaps the most magical city in the entire world. Walking through the curiously nook filled streets and set against a dramatic skyline nestled among seven hills, you’ll find Edinburgh to be one of the most inviting cities in Europe. With inviting nightlife, a booming food scene, and one of the best arts and culture scenes around, you can get lost in Edinburgh and not ever want to be found again….

Berlin DDR Museum

To really take a trip back to East Germany during the Cold War, look no further than Berlin’s exceptional DDR Museum.   It’s perhaps the most interactive museum experience we’ve seen, and you can touch, move, explore, and wear nearly everything inside for a totally immersive experience.  Grab a seat at the couch and watch a working tv where all the channels are cold war era shows and propaganda.  Visit the kitchen and print off recipes to take home and try yourself.  You can even hop in the back of a Russian car and get smuggled across a virtual border!  You can be a part of it all here, and that’s what makes the DDR Museum a must-see in Berlin.

Drinking in Berlin!

Want to see a bar that hasn’t closed it’s doors once since 1979?  Want to try a delicious bloody mary served in a ketchup bottle? How about the single most eclectic rooftop bar we’ve ever seen?  Then stop what you’re doing and make your way to Berlin, Read More

Amsterdam’s HotelSchool The Hague

One of our more unusual hotel stays was at the HotelSchool, where you are waited on by hospitality students as part of their education. Each of the hotel rooms is run by prospective employees of real hotel chains, and man, I gotta tell ya, the service here was perfection. All of these young college students, so excited to be there, so much to look forward to, not being burdened by the weight of the world yet. Oh yeah, and the breakfast buffet was great!

Amsterdam’s Museums

It’s no secret that Amsterdam loves their museums, and with good reason! Take a stroll along the canals and visit the inimitable Van Gogh museum, the heart-wrenching Anne Frank Museum, or the truly world class Stedelijk and Rijksmuseum. And if all this gets to be a bit too heavy, definitely do some of the more light-hearted ones like the KattenKabinet, where you can pet the displays. Just don’t do that in the Van Gogh Museum. They really didn’t like that.

Amsterdam BOAT LIFE!

The canals of Amsterdam are one of the most iconic sights in all of Europe, with 165 canals and 1,700 bridges combining to form a truly unrivaled sightseeing experience. The feeling of renting a boat and taking it to the open water, making friends on the shores and boats as they pass by, is one of our favorite experiences on this entire trip. Come aboard, matey, and see why this is one of our favorite experiences in the world.

Grab a Drink in Amsterdam!

From De Pijp to De Biertuin, Amsterdam has some of our favorite places to kick back a few on your vacation. And you simply must take a trip to Wynand Fockink to get one of their special glasses of ginever, which they’ll fill up to the brim cause they like you. When we saw the label said “ginever,” we said “Oh! This must be gin,” after which we were immediately scolded and told that gin was originally invented here and “brought back to England where they made a whole mess of it.” Sounds like you gotta head to Wynand Fockink to get to real stuff.
