Welcome to our travel blog!
We are two recent grads from Canada planning a trip to Europe in April 2011. Jackie is already in Germany and I (Elena) am in Ontario at the moment but we are meeting up in Munich in about two weeks time! We have already travelled together to Cuba and around Ontario but nothing as long as four weeks.
This blog will be a collection of tips, original photos, and of course our journey through Europe! On our upcoming 4 week adventure we will be journeying through Munich, Berlin, Bern, Interlaken, Geneva, Barcelona, Andalucia, and Madrid.
We titled this blog “Hikes and Bikes” because we will be concentrating on pursuit of active outdoors activities ranging from hiking in the Jungfrau region of the Swiss Alps to taking a bike tour around Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. We’re not the most hardcore trekkers but we’re doing our best to pack light while still being prepared for the cold alpine air and the hot Mediterranean sun! We love researching our destination and learning new things so we’re hoping to share some of our knowledge with you as well as documenting our experience.
After our trip we are planning on continuing this blog with our other adventures this summer such as doing field research in Arctic Canada and touring Belgium!
Hope you enjoy following us and hopefully learn something too!
