Featured Photo Auschwitz
We all know what happened here, it will live on forever as a great blip in our history. Walking the grounds and buildings while learning about the people and what happened to them was the most depressing day of my entire trip.

And while it might be a great tourist attraction, make the effort to visit anyway. Just be sure to leave your happy faces and goofy photo ideas at home and just pay your respects.

      Andi it was just crazy, probably the saddest day travelling and one I’m not going to ever forget.

    That is on my bucket list, well not specifically Auschwitz but ‘a’ concentration camp. I don’t feel obligated to go from guilt but as a history buff who believes that there is so much to learn from a place like that, that by ignoring it we do ourselves a great disservice.

      Hey there my monkey friend. I went to learn about the history of it more than anything else. Once there however you are quickly overwhelmed by what you see and feel from the experience.

      I’m glad I went but it’s not a place I want to make a habit of visiting.
