What’s your favorite city viewpoint? Have you ever found one to be disappointing?
If the Cologne Cathedral and the Main Tower are any indication, we love getting up on top of things to view the tiny world below. When we researched things to do in the city of London, the Sky Garden quickly rose to the top of the list.

What’s the tallest Ferris wheel you’ve been on?
The magnificent London Eye is another thing that didn’t quite exist when I first visited London back in 1999. This Ferris wheel is now one of the most recognizable features of the London skyline (up there with Big Ben, of course).

What is your favorite spot in London?
Trafalgar Square is a popular destination for those visiting the beautiful city of London. Like many central city squares, it is a hub for demonstrations, social gatherings, and holiday celebrations. In fact, about 15 million tourists visit this square every year!

What is the best tour you’ve ever been on?
The Gravensteen Castle is a popular attraction in Ghent, and we almost passed it by as just another touristy thing to do. After all, we could see quite a bit of it from the outside.
However, we’re so glad we went inside! Continue reading “A Taste of the Gravensteen Castle”
Do you have any interesting street art near you?
We stumbled upon this colorful alley simply by happenstance while walking through the quaint city of Ghent. A haven for street artists, this short stretch is constantly changing as new paint is added day after day. This is an open canvas in a “graffiti-friendly” city.

Where have you found awesome sculptures or statues?
Den Haag is another popular day trip from Rotterdam. We were fortunate enough to have some locals to go with us, and it was a lovely day!

What’s a funny mistake you’ve made in your travels?
Holland is known for their windmills. We wanted to photograph some while we were there, but we weren’t too keen on going all the way out to Kinderdijk (the crowds it also draws didn’t sound too appealing, either).

What is the coolest historical structure you’ve visited?
The Cologne Cathedral mesmerized us from the very moment we saw it. A backdrop to the central train station, it’s impossible to miss, and it gives a striking first impression of the city.

Every day in Etosha we saw wild elephants ranging from one to thirty at a time. The youngest were so playful in the waterholes. They would roll around together in the water, and even boldly chase after other animals. We always looked forward to seeing their beauty and grandeur, and each moment with them was special.
While we still have a limited internet connection in Namibia, we are keeping our posts short. Expect more from us in August when we arrive in Europe. See you then!
Of the many kitschy things to do in Japan, visiting a maid cafe usually makes many lists. We aren’t typically ones for overly touristy things, and we often go out of our way to avoid them (tourist attraction undoubtedly leads to throngs of visitors). But while we were recovering from having been inundated with the overwhelming noise and stimulation of the tiny Akihabara shops, we decided to duck into one of these cheesy maid cafes.
