My reading/posting rate has dwindled to a mere book or so a week as our honeyversary (honeymoon on our one year anniversary) approaches! Instead of reading my typical material I immersed myself into reading about our big trip! As I type this we are waiting in the airport for our first flight of the day. During the whirlwind that constituted wedding planning we decided to postpone our honeymoon till our one year anniversary. With the cost assosciated with anything wedding related it made more sense for us to not spend additionally on an elaborate trip immediately following our fabulous, yet cost conscious wedding.
So after the dust from the wedding settled we decided after much debate on an adventure to Prague, Vienna, Bratislavia, and Budapest. True to my analytical mind, I obsessed regarding all of the details, ALL of them! While there are hundreds of blogs and forums accessible for travelers, it is not the same as being able to hold a book, containing all of the places you are eagerly planning to visit. I’d heard that Lonely Planet books far out rate those by Rick Steves’, however I beg to differ! The narrative of Lonely Planet’s seemed impersonal to me, as a first time international flyer. Rick Steves’, on the other hand, was the equivalent of coddling, and having my hand held with minute details I would have otherwise overlooked. With that being said, time to board the flight! Luke, forever humoring me, has graciously agreed to tour the following beautiful libraries while abroad! He will never be able to escape books!
