San Cristobal De Las Casas: Part 1

Hello our dear 3 readers,  we took a break from the blog but now we are back with full force ready to report on trips to Iceland, Mexico, and Nashville.  Let’s start with our most recent trip to the state of Chiapas in the south-east part of Mexico.  We needed to go to Mexico City…

NOLA – The Beginnings

We took a quick Uber to the pier to take the Creole Queen, a 1000 passenger paddlewheeler riverboat operating out of the Port Of New Orleans.  She is 190 feet (57 meters) long and 40 feet (12 meters) wide. She has three decks, two of which house three dining and banquet rooms and a third…

NOLA – Voodo and Bourbon

For most people, Labor Day means two things: a day off and a chance to say goodbye to the summer. But why is it called Labor Day? Labor Day is a day set aside to pay tribute to working men and women; it honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made…

Albuquerque

Our last day in New Mexico was a quick one, partly because we did not have a lot of time until we needed to go to the airport, but mostly because there is nothing to do there anyway. Although it is the largest city in the state, Albuquerque is often overshadowed as a tourist destination…

Tent Rocks

When we travel to a city, we try to find a nice outdoors activity for a day.  This country offers so much beautiful natural landscapes, mostly unknown, that would be a shame to miss out. We drove a couple hours to the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. A remarkable outdoor laboratory, offering an opportunity to…

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…
