**Disclaimer: As the post title should indicate, this is kind of a downer of a post. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Only for a bit, though — then it perks up towards the end.** Sunday July 11th, we got up early and got our bags packed, then took them to the train station and [...]
Since I’ve managed to get behind in blog posts, I’ve decided to make a concerted effort to post pictures and give a brief rundown of the day, at least until I’ve caught up. :-) July 10th John wasn’t feeling well, so he relaxed and I wandered around Krakow, seeing more of the historical things to [...]
Wednesday, July 7th started somewhat busy as we went to run some errands and then head back to our hostel and proceed to conduct the now-usual jigsaw of trying to fit all of our stuff into our backpacks. We got packed up and went to the train station to get our tickets for the night [...]
Euro Trip Day 30: In which we get yelled at by an old lady on the bus, go to a Latin mass, get kicked off the subway, and end up at an apparently fascist rally
Ok, I’m a day late posting this. So sue me. My excuse is the world’s.WORST.upload.speed.EVAR. Even my cell phone camera pics are going slowly, and the ones from inside the sanctuary are my big camera.

This post is coming a bit late because it seems like our internet access always seems to die on us in the evening, which is when I’d prefer to be sitting around working on things like reservations for upcoming cities and blog posts and the like. In any case, most Zagreb museums are closed on [...]
Milo the Screech Owl, originally uploaded by Kari_Marie. This little cutie is Milo, a Western Screech Owl and a resident at the Discovery Museum of Sacramento. John’s nephews (ages 9 and 11) spent the night last night, and since it was pouring rain today and we didn’t want to do anything outside, we took them [...]
Amish quilt at the DeYoung Museum, originally uploaded by Kari_Marie. The DeYoung Museum in San Francisco: King Tut, with a side bonus of Amish quilts. So awesome. :-) .
Reflection on the outside of the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, originally uploaded by Kari_Marie. Today we went to San Francisco to see the King Tut exhibit at the DeYoung Museum in Golden Gate Park, then we met up with Carrye and Aron for dinner in Half Moon Bay. Such a nice day! :-) .
