This is a post for how to get a Prorroga de Estancia (Extension of Stay) which is what you need if you want to stay in Spain over the summer/between semesters. We initially had a heck of a time getting this done as we were moving from one Autonomous Community to another. So it’s now … More How to: Get a Prorroga/Stay Over the Summer
This is a continuation of our experience with Sant Antoni which started here. 7:30 is when the big song in the church started. Only 1,500 people can go in the church, but over 5,000 of us stood outside of the church to be part of it. It was a crush of people. I don’t think … More Sant Antoni Festival 2 and Video
We just blogged about the who’s, what’s and why’s of Sant Antoni. But we wanted to talk about our personal experiences with the big Sant Antoni festival. As we said it was a whirlwind two weeks of absolutely fun nonsense. We tried to go to as many bonfires, communal barbecues, demon dances, and animal blessings … More Our Sant Antoni Festival
Manacor has just finished a whirlwind two weeks of absolutely fun nonsense. Bonfires, communal barbecue, demons dancing, and animal blessings. It’s been a mess of partying, merriment, and chanting. The Sant Antoni (Saint Anthony) festival is fairly unique to our area. Palma (the capital) has some different stuff (also related to Saint Sebastian) but it doesn’t … More Mallorca Monday: Sant Antoni
Our trip this past winter brought us to both Vienna and Budapest. While both of these cities were beautiful, interesting, and historically significant, only one of them (spoiler, it’s Hungary) had amazing food. Seriously though, Vienna was the most disappointing place for food, we didn’t have a single meal (except maybe the Christmas market and … More The best food we’ve ever had.
This was our last day, and we wanted it to be the perfect day. We were a bit tired of taking chances. We didn’t want to spend our last day walking to a museum, only to find that it was busy or closed, and we didn’t want to have a single bad meal. So, we … More A Perfect Day in Budapest
After spending so much time in the capital getting jostled about by tourists we decided to get out of town for a bit. We did this with more than a little apprehension. Setting aside an entire day for a day trip while on vacation is a bit risky. It’s like planning a vacation while you … More Vacation Inception: Visegrad
Day 1 We had made reservations months ago to go axe throwing at noon. The idea being that we would get an axe throwing lesson, and then get to throw axes at wooden targets for an hour. We woke up and headed to a waffle restaurant for breakfast, but it wasn’t open until 10:30 (ominous … More Budapest Begins.
Being in Vienna is like staying over at your grandparents house – everything is calm, and orderly. The TV is always playing the history channel or the news, the music is all classical, and everything is very predictable. But then you go to Budapest, and it’s like going to your big sisters house. The channel … More Welcome to Budapest
Welt Museum This was the museum we were most excited for, and we specifically chose to come here early in the day to avoid all the crowds. This museum is best described as a “things” museum. Each room contained “things” from different cultures around the world. The biggest and baddest of these rooms was the … More Austria Museum Day 3
