I’m less than 48 hours out until I leave for 10 days in Israel! I’m a little nervous because a) I haven’t traveled with people in forever and b) what if I forget something?!

I really think I need to visit Copenhagen again at some point. I disliked my hostel so much and was confused at the layout of the city that I think that really put a cloud over my ability to enjoy the city.

I’ve mentioned several times how I was a big fan of the free walking tours in Poland when I visited in 2015 and the walking tour in Gdansk was equally as exceptional. I actually didn’t know a whole lot about Gdansk before I planned my trip to Poland. I knew Westerplatte was nearby, and that was where World War II started, but I didn’t know … Continue reading The Polish Post Office (Gdansk, Poland)
