Sean and Chris in Stockholm before leaving for the airport to return home on Nov. 4, 2008.

We may have gotten home six weeks ago and completed our last podcast last month, but I am still recovering.

Thus far, WeDontSpeaktheLanguage.com has been home to our video podcast and travel blog, chronicling five weeks backpacking Europe. That portion is done, though a new incarnation of this successful project may be seen.

For now, below, see our most popular and favorite posts and videos. Thanks for following us!

Sean taking couch surfing too seriously in Copenhagen, Denmark on Oct. 31, 2008.

Sean taking couch surfing too seriously in Copenhagen, Denmark on Oct. 31, 2008.

If you peeped Episode Six, the last we did abroad, you saw us discuss the merits and failings of your options for accommodation.

We mentioned, as we have throughout our trip, couch surfing - a concept with which you should familiarize yourself if you plan on doing any extended cheap travel, whether it be in Europe, domestic or anywhere else. These networks are huge and extend through all boundaries.

While we talked about CS in the episode, I thought the process merited some more discussion.

Foreign Perspectives: Phil from Portugal

Posted by Christopher Wink on Nov 7, 2008 in Foreign Perspectives

Phil spoke English with an American deadpan. But don’t mention that to him.

This Portuguese native who was living and working in Hungary when we met him in Budapest told me his English came from U.S. media our country pushes out into the world.

“Conflicting” messages, he told me. One of the many reasons the world is conflicted about the United States.

Watch my interview with Phil below.

Hungarian cooking lessons in Budapest

Posted by Christopher Wink on Nov 6, 2008 in Experiences

Enjoying a meal in Budapest, Hungary on Oct. 21, 2008.

Enjoying a meal in Budapest, Hungary on Oct. 21, 2008.

Sometimes, when you use Couchsurfing, you really connect with your host. In time, conversation and interests. Such is how things went for me and my host Bálint in Budapest, Hungary.

I stayed with him two nights. From our first conversation - over a garlic and eggplant dip of his mother’s creation and some Hungarian beers of my purchase - I knew he was a good, fun guy, interested in the world and excited to try out his English - the jokes came faster the better we got to know each other.

So, I was excited to hear his offer to cook a traditional Hungarian stew if we bought the ingredients.

Delicious food from the streets of Stockholm, Sweden

Posted by Christopher Wink on Nov 3, 2008 in Experiences

Sean and I dropped in on the famed Nystekt Stromming truck in the Stadsmusset neighborhood of Stockholm. It was our chance at (relatively) cheap traditional Swedish foods: fish, potatoes, and cabbage.

Seany found himself the fish and cabbage on a hamburger bun. I got a plate full of the goodness: a pile of mashed potatoes, topped with grilled fish (which I do not know), pickled cucumbers, cabbage, onions and what looked like cole slaw.

Delicious, my friends. Check video of the fun below.

Foreign Perspectives: Thomas from Belgium

Posted by Christopher Wink on Nov 3, 2008 in Foreign Perspectives

Hostels aren’t just for kids.

You can come across people of all ages. We met Thomas and his wife - from Flemish-dominated northern Belgium - in the Aboriginal Hostel in Budapest, Hungary.

He was smart and engaging. Once he found out we were Americans he was eager to talk to us about politics. He is a big supporter of Ron Paul in the upcoming U.S. presidential election and loved talking global politics and economics.

Watch Sean’s interview with him below.

Stockholm, Sweden: Slipping, Signs and such

Posted by Christopher Wink on Nov 2, 2008 in Experiences

A sign in the Gamla Stan neighborhood of Stockholm, Sweden on Nov. 2, 2008.

Today we toured one of the most historic, beautiful, highly regarded and perhaps least toured cities in Europe - despite it being November and notoriously expensive.

Should we show you historic sights to be had? Not yet.

A Stockholm arrival, prison accomodations

Posted by Christopher Wink on Nov 1, 2008 in Experiences

Sean and Chris stayed in the Langholmens Hotel and Hostel, a converted prison in Stockholm, Sweden.

Sean and Chris stayed in the Langholmens Hotel and Hostel, a converted prison in Stockholm, Sweden.

There were some serious doubts, but Sean and I made it to Stockholm, Sweden just before nine P.M. here, four in the afternoon for you East coasters. The only hostel in which we could find lodging happened to be a converted prison. Worth the additional cost for sure. …That and we had no other choice.

Yesterday back in Copenhagen, Denmark, where we found out - because of the popularity of the trip on weekends - we couldn’t get a train to Stockholm until Tuesday, which would seriously cramp our style.
