That's all folks

Well, that's it for my travels for now.  It's been a good run.  The desire to travel long term is out of my system for the time being, but I'm sure it will be back.  I don't have any grand conclusions to provide at this time.  I'm sure my travels have changed me a lot, but I can't put it into words right now.

I hope everyone has enjoyed reading the stories and looking at the pictures.  It was nice to let everyone know what was going on.  My motivation to write about my trips seemed to decrease the more I traveled, but I'm sure one day I'll write more about them.  I don't know if I'll make any more posts here in the near future.  Regardless, thanks for reading and adios!

A girl who worked at my hostel gave me a hard time for asking about a good pizza place in Poland.  Two days later another girl at the hostel was celebrating her last day working at the hostel.  Guess what food my culinary critic brought to celebrate?  Pizza is universally awesome.


The main part of Krakow is encircled by one huge garden that lies where a moat used to be

Oktoberfest

Greatest Beer Festival in Zee World

Beer Tent

They only served one type of beer in each tent and only in a one liter mug

This was on a Tuesday at around noon

Center thingy is where band plays

The rest of the festival is like a giant fair grounds

I'm pretty sure this is for kids and not adults who have been drinking beer all day

My eyes lit up when I saw a rollercoaster

Nope

Roller coast I rode


Very drunk couple in traditional Bavarian dress

Dresden

Sometimes while traveling food like this has to constitute as half a lunch.  The other half - a bag of chips.

Typical new town Dresden street

Psychologist's Office (kidding)

Path along River Elbe

Capitalism Festival
