Oslo

We continued our day in Oslo with a visit to the very under-the-radar National Museum. But this museum houses no less than the second most famous painting after the Mona Lisa.  You know which one it is?? The Scream!! by Edvard Munch is here. The painting had a couple people looking at it, which was…

The Vikings

We finally arrived in Oslo, our last destination for our Scandinavia trip! The hotel we stayed at was fully automated, which was something we have never seen. You get your room cards from those kiosks! The room was really nice for our standards, we were exhausted from the Fjords day  but were still a bit…

The Fjords

Today we travel from Bergen to Oslo passing through the Fjords, one of the world’s natural wonders. Most tourists choose to travel this route using the very well known “Norway In A Nutshell” tour, which is more like a package of pre-booked public transportation tickets. This tour package comes with a cost premium, so with…

Happy Constitution Day, Bergen!!!

Our flight to Bergen arrived really late, but we were still able to see the mighty Norwegian Fjords from the air. We were so lucky to choose the hostel right above the loudest hostel in the city so since we couldn’t sleep we walked around to see the excitement but didn’t last long because we…

Stockholm Part 3: Opa Gamla Stan!

On the third day in the beautiful city of Stockholm, we woke up early to visit the palace located in the old town, also known as Gamla Stan. The old town was a few minutes walk from our hotel, passing by beautiful old cobblestone  streets. We arrived at the Royal Palace and started our visit…

Stockholm Part 2: The Vasa and Beyond

And we are off with the second day in Stockholm waking up early to take one of the ferries to the museum island (Durjgarden). We decided to only take a One-Way ticket and walk back. The ride takes about 15 minutes of pure pleasure while we navigated the channels on this beautiful day. Our first…

Hallå Stockholm

Hello again, our dear readers. We just came back from a fantastic 2 week trip to Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. We are going to start the blog with Stockholm as the photos from Iceland still need some post-processing work. Here we go!! We took a very early flight from Reykjavik to Stockholm that arrived around…

Trippy Santa Fe

We decided to take a quick getaway to New Mexico for presidents day weekend! We got a promo deal while opening the Southwest Credit card where they gave us the companion pass for FREE!! This means that we can go anywhere Southwest airlines fly to, and get another person for free; which means we can…

The Life Outside The Strip: Red Rocks

On our last day (or what we thought was going to be our last day) we stopped on the famous Las Vegas billboard sign. There was a huuuge line to get a picture of it, but if you go to the side and you don’t mind that the sign is not perfectly centered, then you can avoid…

Eitan FOMO: Hoover Dam Edition

We planned for an early morning to beat the crowds at the Hoover Dam, but we made the costly mistake of stopping in a crowded restaurant on our way. Breakfast took 2 hours, so by the time we got close to the Dam, this was the traffic…. After a security check (after 9/11 they increased…
