My friend Grace and I spent three weeks in Ireland, Germany, Austria, and France in December 2014-January 2015. Few things am I more grateful for than the experience of walking the same ground as Jews, Nazis, Claus von Stauffenberg, Easy Company, William the Conqueror, Mad King Ludwig, Mozart, and Maria von Trapp. If you want to know what it’s like to hit 16 cities in 19 days without much sleep (or ability to read maps), check out our adventures in the series below!
1. How to Reach the Alps: Don’t Be a Suspicious Poodle
