Finally, after many months hemming and hawing and wishing and hoping, we bought our plane tickets to go on a honeymoon/first anniversary trip. (Thanks, robbers! We would never have been able to afford this without you!)
The Plan: Two weeks in Eastern Europe — Krakow, Warsaw, Prague, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest. I’m getting super stoked and wanted to share some of the things that I am looking forward to looking at.
We have a 12 hour layover in Frankfurt, Germany on our way there. We plan to use that time for exploration. We don’t have any firm plans yet for things that we want to see, but I’m sure that will change as we get closer to the departure date.
Saint Mary’s Basilica in Krakow
I also what to walk across the Chain Bridge in Budapest. Apparently, when this bridge was constructed, it was considered one of the wonders of the world.
The Hofburg Palace in Vienna.
My mother is fond of saying that “if you’ve seen one European palace,” you’ve seen them all. I’m inclined to disagree though, because I would also like to see the Schonbrunn Palace (also in Vienna).
There is no such thing as “too many palaces.”
This church is consecrated to St. Elisabeth of Hungary and since she’s my patron saint, I figure I should check it out. I also like to color blue so I’m obviously headed to the right place.
It’s the third largest astronomical clock in the world and that has to count for something.
