We’re ready to @GowithOh & be the first-ever Guest Tester Family!

gowithohWhere has the time gone?? It seems it was only last week that I wrote my entry for the GowithOh Guest Tester blogger competition, and only yesterday that I was chosen as a winner. In reality, months have passed, airline tickets have been purchased, and reservations have been made. Our Euro adventure and our stint as GowithOh’s first-ever Guest Tester Family is right around the corner!

Of GowithOh’s seventeen European city destinations, we will be visiting three.

First stop is Berlin.

Then it is on to Vienna…

…and our last stop will be Prague.

We will be gone a total of fifteen days, staying in three different GowithOh apartments in three different cities, and adding three new countries to our lists. Also worth noting, this will be Lucia‘s second trip to Europe – she’s 5. Lucky kid.

We have ideas of what we’d like to see and do in each city but we have no set plans yet. I’m just extremely excited to be visiting Vienna and Prague, two cities that have been high on my list for some time. Berlin, honestly, never really was on my radar but the hubs is all about it. I can say, from the small bit of research I’ve done so far, that I am looking forward to the historic World War II sites; the abundance of Turkish restaurants; and the beer. Furthermore, I’m learning that Berlin is a wonderful city for young children. I can’t wait to see what kind of adventures Lucia will have, and what we can discover as a family.

Departure is less than a month away. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to keep up with our daily adventures! In the meantime, tell me: what are your favorite things to do and see in Berlin, Vienna, and/or Prague?

      I should have talked to you about Vienna before we left… we could have used some tips.

    Family time all around Europe. You are going to have a great time? What will the kids wear to the nightclubs? ;-0

      Ha ha, yeah it was hard to find club clothes in such small sizes.

    I was 33 when I made my second trip to Europe. Bonjour Amigo is way ahead of the curve. Prague is my favorite European city, Vienna is the one city in Europe I have visited, but wished I had more time in (only one afternoon), and Berlin is the European city I have never been to that I want to see. Therefore, I will be following this trip closely.

      I hope you got some good info from us, Ted. I cannot recommend Berlin enough. I did not expect to love it as much as I do.

      Now that I know the REAL story about Vienna… ;-)

    Don’t miss out on Mauerpark on Sunday in Berlin!! it is great fun. Berlin truly is a great place for kids. I recommend you renting bikes and doing some exploring!

    • Francesca May 1, 2014 at 12:16 pm #

      We did not make it to Mauerpark but we did enjoy everything else we did in Berlin! We’d love to return.
