Bucket List: Climb Mt Batur

A view from near the base of Mt Batur, Bali on Chasing-Emma.com

Berlin Walking Tour with Original Berlin Walks

Third Reich Walking Tour Review

No trip to Berlin, Germany, would be complete without some sort of activity that acknowledges the country’ history between 1918 and 1990.

While I think you could easily spend a full week in Budapest since there are so many hidden gems, we only had a limited amount of time so we had to make the most of it, and while there were a few things that we didn’t get to, I’m pretty happy with what I was able to achieve in such a short amount of time.
