Plitvice Lakes National Park - Upper Lakes

Mukinje, Ličko-Senjska, Croatia
Sightseeing | 7.5 miles
The walk started at the nearby town where we are lodging. We followed route E according to the many suggested routes shown on the map and trail signs. Seeing only the south half of the park, we took the tram to the top at St4 and walked down the walkway viewing the beautiful scenery the entire way. We finished with a quick boat ride across the lake.
The occupy Stockholm movement could us some momentum. Photo

First Night in Berlin

Sightseeing | 3.6 miles
After checking out our amazing hotel room in the center of Berlin (we got upgraded to the Spa Suite at the Grand Westin Berlin), we took a mellow stroll at sunset and saw some beautiful architecture along the waterfront.  This city has been through a lot, but it has recovered nicely!The landmark Brandenburger Tor, the only surviving city gate marks the western terminus of Unter den Linden.  We saw it at sunset. ...

Unter den Linden & Museumsinsel
by aroller on Sep 23, 2010
Berlin, Berlin, Germany
Sightseeing | 1.8 miles
Our last morning in Berlin we toured the Unter den Linden Strasse towards Museumsinsel (aka Museum Island).  We stopped at the site for the infamous book burning at Bebelplatz, which took place on May 10, 1933.  A poignant below-ground memorial of empty book shelves marks the spot.  Bebelplatz is surrounded by many historical buildings.  Visited the Neue Wache, Germany's central memorial to victims of fascism and militarism.  In it are the tombs...

Berlin Bicycle Tour
by aroller on Sep 22, 2010
Sightseeing | 19.1 miles
We rented some bikes from Take-a-Bike and visited the Checkpoint Charlie Museum, the Topography of Terror exhibit along the Wall, the Tiergarten and eventually Schlosspark Charlottenburg. Berlin is a great riding city.  Paths along the river were scenic.  Tiergarten was fun to ride through.  Berliners take care of their parks.

We did some more tourist sight-seeing in the main area of Munchen.  We made our way to Oktoberfest where we got intimate with tens of thousands of our closest friends, a few liters of beer and a few large pretzels.  Something we had to do at least once.
