Not a Necromancer

Jul 05, 2011 No Comments

In an effort to prove that I was not a skeleton freak, I ventured the 3km to the other side of town to visit the cathedral. It was pretty large and impressive. But my favorite parts, were the carvings and statues! And it did give some amazing views back over the town. On the way […]

Dem Bones, Dem Bones

Jul 05, 2011 1 Comment

In a little town outside of Prague lies the most bizarre church I have ever seen. During the Black Death and the following wars, there were 40,000 to 70,000 people buried at this location. Soon of course there became too many bodies to deal with, so some enterprising monk started arranging the bones into piles. […]

Ok this military time thing? Who thought that up? Just about the time I think I’ve got a handle on it, it all blows up in my face. Strangely this time it worked out in my favor, but still! I had been putting off buying my flight into Czech because I couldn’t find a price […]

Midsummers: Part IV

Jun 30, 2011 No Comments

Ok home strech people! Last day of Midsummer’s we headed down south to Pierre’s dad’s cabin. And I do mean cabin. That bad boy was a teeny tiny little thing. I have to admit I was afraid when the 8 of us pulled up, where the hell we were all going to sleep! But first […]

Midsummers: Part III

This post is purely so you can understand the Swedish night. I took a photo of the night sky every hour so you at home can finally comprehend what I mean about the sunsets. (It was massively entertaining to my Swedish friends everytime I ran outside.) See?!?! Not only does the sun never actually go […]

Ok so first day of the weekend, Friday! We had stayed the night at Pierre’s mom’s place and when we finally managed to drag ourselves out of bed, at about noon, we had breakfast! Breakfast in Sweden is a huge affair. I know we get a bad rap in America for having a large breakfast, […]

Ok this weekend was insane. Like crazy out of control, I have no idea where I am or where I’m going, or what I’m drinking, INSANE. As such we will have to split this thing up into parts so it doesn’t become a scroll fest. First up, moving from my hostel over to Pierre’s dad’s […]

Swedish Engineering: Calling All Squints!

Jun 27, 2011 4 Comments

Sweden makes some pretty great stuff. IKEA, H&M (as I recently discovered) etc, etc. And they have a pretty nice navy as they’ve got a ton of water surrounding them. But sometimes that great planning goes to hell in a handbasket. Example for today’s lesson: The Vasa. The Vasa was a massive warship built in […]

Pick a Palace or Two

Jun 21, 2011 2 Comments

Here in Sweden, they’ve got nine. NINE PALACES! I mean, they only have a constitutional monarchy and they’ve got nine palaces. Jealous. I hit up the biggest and best, the Drottningholm Palace first. I picked up some bad juju along the way since nothing went on schedule today. Here’s how it all unfolded: 10:10 arrive […]
