We’ve arrived in Copenhagen, Denmark

Posted by Sean Blanda on Oct 31, 2008 in Preconceived Notions

With the capital of Germany in our rear view mirrors, Chris and I have arrived in Copenhagen, Denmark. Like many of the cities along our journey, I do not have very many preconceived notions about this city of 1.5 million. I have read about its high standard of living, high degree of government involvement, and its socially liberal attitudes. In my mind there seem to be several parallels with Zurch, Switzerland.

It is our first official foray into what can be considered Northern Europe so Chris and I prepared to pile on the layers as we may be the only people who head north in the winter months. We have also been told by several travelers that Copenhagen can get expensive, however while thumbing through our guide we have seen several free activities we can do while there. Additionally we were lucky enough to have a local host us while couchsurfing, so by luck Copenhagen may be one of the cheapest cities we visit.

Also, on the ride here, we suddenly realized that our train had pulled into a ferry for a 45-minute trek between two Danish islands.  Being little kids at heart, we immediately ran to the roof.

Sausauges… continued in Berlin, Germany

Posted by Christopher Wink on Oct 28, 2008 in Experiences

Sean enjoying a sausage and fries at Curry 36, a food stall in Berlin, Germany Oct. 29, 2008.

So, turns out that Berlin, Germany has a noted food stall a bit off its more popular touristed paths: Curry 36.

Once the Lonely Plant tour guides started recommending it, though, it’s business skyrocketed and popularity soared. It went from city favorite to international stop. We had to check in on Tuesday. See video below.

Find Enlightenment from a cartoon

Posted by Christopher Wink on Oct 28, 2008 in Travel Tips

Found this animation on Youtube, and if it doesn’t speak to the merits of deferring student loans, life and responsibility in general, then I don’t think anything can. Enjoy.

Does that make you want to move?

Look. I am here to eat. Screw the cathedrals. The languages. The cultures.

Tell me a city is known for something tasty and - damn it - give it to me. There’s a few in Vienna. So we indulged.

Yes, bring on the apple strudel. See some video of other goodies below.

We say goodbye to Brian: America’s favorite middle child

Posted by Sean Blanda on Oct 23, 2008 in Plans

Although on the surface this may appear to be a two man operation, we have to confess we have a camera man.  And a producer.  And a critic.  And whatever else we need him for.

My brother Brian has been tagging along with us for the middle portion of the journey and has been a great resource for WDSTL. He is kind enough to help out when asked, and has waited patiently as we edit video before sight seeing.

But today, we split paths as he leaves to return home to the States.  We hope when he gets home you guys all make fun of the slight British speaking inflection he has acquired.  He has since been replaced by a tripod.

Here he is getting serious in a night spot in Brussels, Belgium.

Foreign Perspectives: Ian from New Zealand

If you compared Ian Fulguirinas’ trip to ours, it would look like we took the easy way.  Thats because this Kiwi has eschewed conventional transportation and lodging methods to rely solely on hitchhiking and the generosity of others.  In Brussels, my brother Brian was fortunate enough cross paths with Ian when he went Couch Surfing.

On the morning before we left for Paris, we talked to Ian about his thoughts on American politics and why he doesn’t like rugby.

Apologies for the background noise, the Brussels street repair crew decided 8 a.m. was perfect jackhammering time.

Shall we review on our whirlwind of a stay in Paris?

When undertaking this blog, Sean and I promised each other we wouldn’t fall into the habit of simply sharing our travel videos. We want to give advice - maybe entertain - and help make your trips better, more efficient and complete. Still, Paris is full of some of the best known locations around the world. We couldn’t help but give you a quick taste of those places you all know that call the City of Lights home.

Check the video highlights below.
