Kim
  1. Most other travelers we’ve seen are Asian
  2. Cash-only is getting old
  3. Money goes way farther and has more value in eastern Europe
  4. Beef, pork, potatoes, bread; I have a gut and probably heart problems too
  5. To travel to destinations I want to because I want to and not feel pressure to travel to places because we “should”.

  7. Tourist information offices and good maps are invaluable
  8. Menus in English make life easier
  9. I’m ready for a culture change
  10. Travel is supposed to make you more patient but I’m more impatient than ever

  12. Overly inspirational and cheesy instagram posts make me laugh
  13. Favorite place so far: Cinque Terre, Innsbruck, Cesky Krumloff (+_+ too many to choose)
  14. Least favorite place so far: Vienna (because it was so overly crowded), Zagreb (because of a shitty hostel).
