Comprehensive Guide for Things to Do In Lucerne

This summer, I had the chance to go on yet another crazy, fast-paced trip. I managed to cover 8 countries in 15 days, and that’s counting the ~30 hours I spent travelling to and from Europe. The way I planned the majority of my trip was by using the fare planner on Ryanair, where I found a cheap flight from London (where I was before Read More …

24 Hours in Krakow

After my stops in Budapest and Vienna, the third stop on my five-countries-in-five-days trip was Krakow, Poland. We arrived at the Krakow train station at around 8 AM after an overnight train ride. First, we exchanged some of our euros for Polish currency, the Zloty. I would highly recommend doing this, as most of the Eastern European countries that I visited accept only their national currency Read More …

24 Hours in Copenhagen

After discovering my favorite Scandinavian capital of Stockholm, I moved on to Copenhagen, Denmark. I had heard about the strong bike culture in Copenhagen and was excited to rent a bike and explore the city. Similar to the other cities, I spent a little more than 24 hours in Copenhagen, but the majority of my sightseeing activities were done within a 24 hour period. My guide to Read More …

24 Hours in Stockholm

After visiting Helsinki, I was off to Stockholm, a city I was very excited to explore. I am a big fan of Swedish design and Swedish musicians, including Peter Bjorn & John, First Aid Kit, Icona Pop, Robyn, and Tove Lo, and I really hoped to be as big a fan of the city as I was of the people who came out of it. Stockholm did Read More …

24 Hours in Helsinki

In November 2015, I embarked on a one week journey through Scandinavia, an area of Europe I had been wanting to see for years. My first stop was Helsinki, the capital city of Finalnd. Helsinki sits on a peninsula in the southern part of Finland on the shore of the Gulf of Finland. Helsinki was established in 1550 by the King of Sweden as a trading competitor Read More …

24 Hours In Vienna

After my first stop in Budapest, the second stop on my five-countries-in-five-days trip was Vienna, Austria. Upon arriving in the Wien Haubtbahnhof, I was excited to once again hear German spoken around me and to see signs advertising dishes with things such as sauerkraut and schnitzel. I arrived in Vienna just before noontime and immediately headed to my accommodation. When I was booking a place Read More …

24 Hours in Berlin

It may come as a surprised to you – and it certainly comes as a surprise to me – that Berlin, a city I have visited twice for 24 hours or less each time, is one of my favorite cities in the world. No other city has the same juxtaposition of rich history and rich modern alternative art culture that Berlin has. This guide primarily Read More …

24 Hours in Budapest

In the middle of my month-long stay in Germany, I decided I wanted to see as many countries as I could before I left Europe. This led to me planning (which basically involved booking hostels the night before my trips and having a vague idea of the main attractions in the cities I was visiting) a five day trip, during which I visited a different Read More …

24 Hours in Oslo

One of my good friends from university (Mackenzie) moved to Oslo to pursue her masters degree after she graduated university and has been living there for the last two years or so. My sister and I had the opportunity to meet up with her while we were in Oslo, and she kindly offered to be our tour guide and take us around the city for an entire Read More …
