  • A Central European Road Trip

    I just got back in Prague earlier today after a business trip to Budapest, Hungary. I’m in love with Budapest itself, and the road trip getting there was great, too! From Prague to Budapest is about a 5 hour drive – across the Czech Republic, through Slovakia, and into Hungary. From the road along the […]

  • Recycling in Germany

    Recycling in Germany can be precise. It took a while for me to get the hang of it, during which time I started collecting recyclables in my room…. The situation soon got desperate, and it was time to figure out German recycling. It’s especially important here in Freiburg, known for being one of the prominent ‘green’ […]

  • On the Autobahn

       I’ve talked before about getting around Germany, where the train is definitely my go-to mode of transport. But sometimes I also get the chance to take buses on the autobahn, or German highway.
