Dennis and Kimberly’s Excellent and Epic European Adventure, Day 25

Feb. 5, 2016: Amsterdam This morning we walk the short distance from Joost’s house to the Beverwijck train station.

Dennis and Kimberly’s Excellent and Epic European Adventure, Day 20

Jan. 31, 2016: Vienna to Krakow So early this morning I’m downstairs preparing my tea and Kimberly’s upstairs in the bathroom with the squeaky hinge (the one complaint I have about this hostel) when the alarm on my Samsung pad detonates and sends her scrambling from the bathroom to shut it off before all of…… Continue reading Dennis and Kimberly’s Excellent and Epic European Adventure, Day 20
