Be prepared to be transported through time to Medieval Germany. . . . After two and a half days in the Bavarian Capital, we were ready to start the second leg of our journey through Germany.

Whether you kept up with our travels on Instagram or not, I'm sure it's no surprise to anybody familiar with The Dana Diaries that I'm only JUST getting around to writing about our … Continue reading München Must-dos
Ah, Kyoto. Japan’s third largest city - and it's oldest. Rich in traditional Japanese culture, Kyoto is undoubtedly an experience unlike any other.

As I'm sure you've noticed, we've been back from the Turkish Turquoise Coast for quite some time now, yet I still haven't gotten around to finishing (cough, starting) my blog post about it!
