Dresden Weekend

May 6, 2018 2 comments

We headed to former East Germany for a sunny weekend, since we had heard Dresden is a picturesque location. We didn’t realize that post-WW2 rebuilding didn’t start until after the Berlin Wall came down.

But it is very nice and we stumbled upon a good transportation museum, which is our favorite type of museum. Lorie even got to fly a flying saucer in an old version of Microsoft Flight Simulator.

30 Everyday Things in Amsterdam: (30) Your local market

April 29, 2018 Leave a comment

This is the last of my “30 Everyday Things in Amsterdam” posts. These were in no particular order, but I do really enjoy having street markets scattered around Amsterdam. I don’t often buy anything, but I like walking through them to see what’s being sold and what’s in season.

If you want to buy from a local farmer, get a fresh stroopwafel, find some cheese, flowers, or maybe just some weird odds and ends, then your local street market is the place. Amsterdam has quite a few of them, but they’re not always open every day of the week so you have to get to know your local ones; when to go, what to get, etc.


30 Everyday Things in Amsterdam: (29) Your local pub

We are still in search for our favorite local pub, although we do like Helst when we’re in the mood for good beer. I don’t mind if the search for a favorite requires prolonged sampling of local establishments.
