How We Did Our Quick Trip to Prague

Where We Ate

As two people who both love food but want to live a healthy lifestyle we need to maintain a balance of indulgence and health. We have been living outside of the States for 10 months now. So when we found out there was a Mexican restaurant in Prague with good reviews and a burrito, we knew we had to make a stop. Granted, it doesn’t compare to the real deal. BUT, my oh my did it satisfy those cravings and make two people happy! Continue Here!

Our First Ukrainian Orchestra!

When you live in another country, you expect things to be a little different. The language, the food, the holidays, etc. At the same time, there are things you expect to be similar: parks, some brand name items, etc. We recently discovered that orchestra concerts are not in the category of things that are consistent. However, we also learned that trying as many different activities as you can lead to some amazing stories. Continue Here!

On Top of the World: Running the Goverla

Goverla (or Hoverla) is the tallest mountain in Ukraine at 6,762 feet. The name is from old Hungarian meaning “Snow Mountain” and for about 6 months out of the year, it lives up to that name. Luckily for us, early October is not part of the snow season. We recently raced in the Lifeventure Goverla Race in the Carpathian Mountains; it is an 8 or 16 Km race to the top of Goverla. Being the adventurous spirits we are who are always looking for fun ways to stay in shape, we said “why not?” If you have read our article “How We Lost 100lbs While Traveling” you know that we love to run. Even though we love to run, our muscles are still crying from this one. Nevertheless, we had such a great time that we could not wait to get home to write this blog post! Continue Here!

Cheapest Cities in Europe to Visit

When most people write about cheap European travel, they usually tend to leave out most of Eastern Europe. That is a terrible mistake to make, because this region houses some of the cheapest cities in Europe. Infograph of Cheapest European Cities

We are currently living in Ukraine about four hours from Kiev (the cheapest European city to visit).  For those of you who do not know how to convert pounds to dollars, 15 pounds is roughly 20 dollars. So in Kiev according to this chart, it will cost you about $20 a day, which is a steal! But it gets better, we never go to Kiev because it is too expensive  for us compared to our town! In Ukraine outside of Kiev, Lviv, and Ivano Frankivsk you could easily live on $10-15 a day. Continue Here!
