Brno – The city not the movie character

We just got home from an overnight in Brno, and while my mind is fresh I thought a post was needed. Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic after Prague and is known for being a student town and a cheaper Prague. Me and four boys decided we would head out to…

#tbt: Wedding Edition

On this lovely Thursday, I think it’s time to throw it back, #tbt. I am going to write the post that first made me think about creating a blog way back when. It was the summer of ’15, (not as catchy as the Bryan Adam’s song) but has a decent ring to it. Now add…
