Just for fun, after we got back and we could begin to absorb more about all our travels and experiences and start to sort out and organize all the many photos, we decided to make an Awards List. We had obvious categories, like best meals and hotels, most interesting museums, most expensive city, the saddest places. But, we also came up with some rather more wacky ideas, like the smallest shower, the hottest room, the most beautiful roofs.
It was a lot of fun to do and another great way to relive some of our memories (besides writing about them in the blog). I hope you’ll also have fun sharing them with us in the coming weeks and months.
To start off, this was a simple one to pin down:
BEST GUIDE BOOK was without doubt Rick Steves’ Eastern Europe. Each place we visited also had local maps, pamphlets and books on special places for sale—all good. But the single best general reference was Rick Steves.
