Berlin, Prague, Vienna: Far from the beaten European path

By
AT OLD Town Square. MIO PAREDES

For my two-month tour of Europe with my siblings, I had really wanted to go Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic.

By
t0207erica_feat5_1

My favorite activity when abroad is eating. I will Google my destination to find interesting restaurants days before my departure.
