Villa Saint Exupery Hostel in Nice Old Town

Posted at:27 July, 2015 in Ambassador Blog

July 23 (cont’d) I arrived in Nice.  Nice is Nice (I am sure that is original)…. … It is a small city and it has that great small vibe.  I walked from the train station towards Villa Saint Exupery Hostel.  I was hungry so I was watching for prices of snacks on the way, but everything […]

The Catacombs of Paris

Posted at: in Ambassador Blog

I got up early and left St. Christoper’s Canal Hostel to head to the Catacombs of Paris… I did not know what to really expect, but I now can say that it is one of the best €9 spent in the entire tourism industry…. I had a flyer with me that said, ‘At the end […]

St Christopher’s Inn Cheap Hostel in Paris

Posted at:24 July, 2015 in Ambassador Blog

July 21 (cont’d) The train pulled into Paris’ Gare de l’Est station… St Christopher’s Inn Paris is a sharp looking hostel and they have an area along the canal with tables and beach-umbrellas beside a shack that sells food and booze.  It feels like you’re at a beer gardens at the beach. I have never seen a hostel […]

Five Elements Hostel in Frankfurt near the train station

Posted at: in Ambassador Blog

July 20 (cont’d) Germany is a very ‘cash’ oriented country.  Credit cards and debit cards are not normal ways of paying for anything… … If you find a bank machine, you should probably use it at once, because when you need money again you are unlikely to find one.  I was starving at Berlin Central Station […]

The Circus Hostel in Berlin City Centre

Posted at:23 July, 2015 in Ambassador Blog

July 18 I made my goodbyes and was out the door and at Central Station in Copenhagen by 9am… … I caught a train across the country for three hours.  At Rødby Færge I waited an hour to catch another train to Germany.  What I did not know was that the train I was waiting […]

Copenhagen Downtown Best Hostel in Copenhagen

Posted at:21 July, 2015 in Ambassador Blog

July 15 (cont’d) I checked in for my flight to Copenhagen.  As I went to pass though security… …and took everything metal out of my pockets, I took a gamble that my new shoes would pass through the metal detector without having to take them off.  The machine beeped.  I lost.  I booed the machine in […]

Auschwitz Tour – The Blackness of Humanity and Dark Facts

Posted at:17 July, 2015 in Ambassador Blog

– A bus arrived at Pink Panther’s hostel to pick me up at 11:30am.  I would take about an hour to get from Krakow to Auschwitz.  I was surprised to find that I was the only first language English speaker on the bus! A short history of the Third Reich thanks to our Auschwitz Tour – […]

Marken Gjestehus Bergen

Posted at: in Ambassador Blog

July 13 (cont’d) The train arrived in Oslo, Norway.  It has been over four years since I had seen the city…. …and even though I knew I would be heading here, I still felt surprised to be looking at the city again when I left the train station.  I took pictures of old memories, grabbed lunch […]

City Backpackers Hostel Stockholm

Posted at:16 July, 2015 in Ambassador Blog

July 11 (cont’d) My plane from Warsaw (Modlin), Poland landed in Stockholm (Skavsta), Sweden…. … An €18 shuttle bus for the 80 minute ride from the airport to Stockholm city center was a quick reminder about Scandinavian prices.  Ouch! I arrived at the City Backpackers Hostel and checked in.  The hostel is very nice, tidy, and […]
