That’s not actually true. I would not survive Oktoberfest every day.
Here’s Part 2 of our Greek Road Trip! On Wednesday, we planned to drive due east into the heart of the country, ultimately stopping to see the monasteries of Meteora. That being said, we made sure to get up early so we could walk up to see Parga’s castle before we left!
At the end of August, Mere had a work trip down to Preveza in northwestern Greece. She ended up having a few days off, so I took a spur-of-the-moment trip down to join her! The trip down was more eventful that I would have liked, but after a *very* long Sunday, I picked her up […]
The push cart derby was exciting enough, but we had one more fun event to cap off our back-to-Maastricht weekend. The city had been constructing a new northern bridge across the Maas, and to celebrate its opening they staged a Sunday evening parade featuring Theater Titanick and Les Plasticiens Volants…i.e. giant dinosaur balloons and a […]
Mere & I were looking forward to a relaxing weekend after our whirlwind trip through the east coast, but there’s always time for something delightfully weird. I happened to see an ad for a Red Bull-sponsored zeepkistenrace (push cart derby) taking place in Valkenburg, which is just a 10-minute train ride away; of course we […]
On Monday morning, we bid a rainy farewell to Annapolis; I’m sure we’ll be again soon. Fortunately, we had planned one final treat before heading back to the Netherlands: a day-and-a-half in New York with Ellen!
Wildwood was a lot of fun, but we still had a week-and-a-half of grand touring left to do in the States! We kicked it off with a few days of much-needed rest and relaxation at Phil & Janie’s house in Sneads Ferry, and we only got there thanks to the first of *many* rides from […]
Each year on the last weekend of July, thousands of ultimate players descend on the beaches of Wildwood for the biggest tournament in the world. It’s a ridiculous amount of fun, but more than that, it’s a great place for a reunion if, say…you live overseas and only get to see your Stateside friends every […]
We spent a little less than a week in Maastricht with Oren, Cass, and Noa, and then we started to range further afield. In the last few days of their visit, we showed them the center of Aachen, Germany, and also drove down to see Luxembourg City and Vianden in Luxembourg!
In February, we got the best Valentine’s Day present ever: Oren & Cass came to visit, and we finally got to meet sweet lil’ Noa! The weather was typically dreary for the Netherlands early in the year, but we made the most of it, and Oren & Cass even got to check off a couple […]
