On The Road: Sarajevo, Bosnia

Just back from a visit to Bosnia & Hercegovina, one of the former states that comprised Yugoslavia, and a place steeped in history.

Venice Will Make You Feel Brand New, These Canals Will Inspire You

As I previously mentioned, we had to be up very early (5 am, the horror!) for our train to Venice. Luckily, the company of 3 books and a movie paired with naps made the 7 and a half hour train ride proceed fairly quickly. 737 more words
