A'Dam Here I Come

I took the train from Hannover to Amsterdam today.  Thankfully Lennard offered to drive me to Hannover station which made the trip a lot more comfortable!  I also reserved a compartment for the ride so that I could sit in an area that's relatively private.  There are only six seats in the compartment and for the most of the ride to Amsterdam I had the lights turned off and had a nice little nap. I…

Whether or Not to Buy the EuRail Pass

I knew that train traveling in Europe is very convenient and that it was an inexpensive way to get around so before I came I looked into buying the EuRail Pass.  What I didn't realize is how expensive the pass is or how many options there are!  After doing more research and talking to some of my friends, I decided to not buy pass for my own trip.  Instead, I would buy tickets either online…

The Lovely Hotel Vertigo in Marseille

After spending a week in Nice, it was a bit hard to leave.  The people there have been so wonderful and I also met a lot of new and wonderful friends.  Hopefully we will continue to keep in touch and perhaps meet up in our travels again in the future. I headed towards Marseille again on this leg of the journey.  I found this hostel called Hotel Vertigo that had wonderful ratings so I decided…

Monaco

I spent the day here in Monaco and just took in the sites.  There is much money in the country it is unbelievable!  It might be one of my favourite places already and I've only been here for not even a day.  Maybe some day I will have enough money to step inside the Casino Monte Carlo and do some high stakes gambling after showing up in my luxurious super yacht.  Wouldn't that be the…

Where the Rich Hang Out

When I think of Monaco, I picture the rich and famous on their luxury yachts and their expensive cars vacationing here.  Gambling, suntanning, and doing whatever else that suits their fancy.  I wasn't disappointed.  While I didn't actually see any famous people, I did see more than a fair share of Rolls-Royce, Bentleys, and Mercedes chauffeuring around their passengers to various locations. Of the location that had the most collection of luxury cars was the…

Paris to Lyon

I had to get up at 4am today so that I can catch the train.  I guess I didn't really think about my travel plans when I purchased my train tickets.  It probably wasn't the smartest thing to do but at least I made it.  I have to say though, trying to figure out how to print my ticket at Gare de Lyon was a bit tricky and I was cutting it a little close…
