Arch Street

This picture was taken in Antigua, Guatemala on the Arch Street. The street is actually called 5th Avenue, but the name Arch street is a bit more descriptive. The arch served as a place for nuns to walk above the streets from a school to a convent, and back. Now the arch is one of the defining characteristics of Antigua. The street is closed to cars on the weekends and offers loads of nice restaurants and some good shopping too. This street is really lively on the weekends and it’s fun to walk along, seeing the street performers and listening to the music that is almost always playing. The street also leads directly to the central park, so if you don’t find what you’re looking for, you aren’t to far away from the city center. Also lots of places around here have access to wifi, so if you want to do a little more research about the town, you’ll be able to in one of the cute coffee shops along the street or in the square.

This picture was taken in Luang Prabang, Laos, at a restaurant on the main street called Khmu. The first dish is fried Mekong seaweed with a chili paste, and the second is stir fried Morning Glory. Both were absolutely delicious, as was the Chicken Susee (not pictured). Khmu is a fantastic restaurant, and if you don’t want to eat from the street food carts, this is a really good alternative. The street food carts are really good too, but this is better for a sit down meal.

This picture was taken on Museum Island in Berlin, Germany. This island (not an island exactly, its surrounded by a little water way, which seems more like a moat) houses a few of the (many) amazing museums that Berlin has to offer. The island is great because it has a lot of places to visit in very close proximity to each other. Because this area is pretty highly touristed there are also lots of restaurants, cafes, and places to shop around for the typical tourist stuff like Berlin teeshirts and Ampleman merchandise. We also found a little craft fair area not to far from here, so the area really has a lot to offer.

This photo was taken in Paris, France. We spent a large part of the day just hanging out on the large grassy lawns in front of the Eiffel Tower. The tower is absolutely beautiful, and it’s never something you get tired of seeing. The area around the tower has a lot of little tourist shops and Crepe and soda Kiosks. It’s a really nice place to just hang out and spend a relaxing afternoon.

This is a little marketplace we found in Krakow, Poland. Food wasn’t super expensive in Poland, which was a really nice contrast to some of the other place we had stayed. We went to this market right when we got to Krakow, we were actually looking for a museum, but it was closed, and we happened to find this little market instead. We bought a ton of fresh fruit and sat in a nearby park and ate it and just watched the locals walk around. It was really nice, and it was really cool to see how they sell sunflower seeds there, still attached to the actual flower. We took our time in Poland a little slow, we didn’t go to too many tourist attractions, but we had a really great experience there, and the food was seriously amazing. If you are visiting Krakow keep an eye out for a 24 hour Perogi restaurant, the perogis were good (and super cheap) and it’s wonderful to have a 24 hour place! We went and got perogis right before we left and took them with us on our seriously early morning train. Poland is a great place to visit, but i’d definitely recommend doing some research before you go, just so you have a better idea of what you’ll want to see when you’re there.
