Hi again everyone! Sorry for not updating, traveling is pretty hectic, luckily some of the hotels/hostels we´ve been staying in have had free internet access so i´ve been able to upload some photos, send emails to my friends and family and check chictopia of course. hee hee!
I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas and a super fantastic New Years Eve celebration! What did you end up doing for both?
I guess i´ll give a bit of an overview of what we´ve been up to since I updated last. After we left Vienna Dan and I went to Budapest to stay with one of his family friends John. We stayed there about 5 days. We did´t see too much during that time but it was nice to have a relaxing rest. Plus it was snowing a lot and got down to -10 a couple of days... eep, not that cold compared to some places but probably the coldest i´ve ever experienced! We went to some wonderful resturants in Budapest.
We got to Prague on the evening of the 23rd December and stayed there for Christmas. I thought Prague was really amazing, with the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings. We were near to the old market square and we went there every day. We had a relaxing Christmas day when we went to the National Museum. We spent about 2 days exploring the Prague Castle Complex as well.
We spent about 6 days, including New Years Eve in Krakow. Ohh I thought Krakow was brilliant too :) We went to many beautiful churches and lots and lots of museums. The food there was really delicious and oh so cheaply wonderful! I think we could have spent many more days there, but i think that about all the places we´ve visited :P New Years Eve was fun! We went to the main square to celebrate as they have a big concert with thousands of people attending. The fireworks and ceonfetti and streamers at 12am was very exciting, although I didn´t really enjoy waiting for 12am as it was freezing, I didn´t particularly like the music they were playing and tall people kept standing in front of me! :P but I think the celebrations were worht it. On our last day in Poland we went to Auschwitz and Birkenau. It was a very interesting but very sad and sombre experience.
So on the 5th of Jan we spent the whole day traveling to Berlin. We spent all of yesterday and today exploring the Museumsinsel, (Museums Island.) I loved all the different galleries! Gallery visiting gets really exhausting after awhile, especially if you´ve been looking at art and artefacts from 11am to 8pm like we did today! :D Tomorrow we will be visiting some more galleries and the Jewish museum too I think.
Oh, and tomorrow (the 8th of Jan) is Daniel and my 2 years anniversary of being together. Yay! It´s gone by really quick :) We won´t be doing anything special though, we already went out for a nice and expensive dinner in Krakow :P
Thanks for all the comments and new followers! Sorry I won´t be able to reply to your comments for now, but I will when I get back to Australia after the 27th Jan :P And no photos of me stylishly dressed until I get back either! Ahh I am so tired of wearing the same jacket and shoes every day!!! But because I love you guys, here are some photos of us from the first 1/2 weeks of our trip :)
