Bunker 42

Bunker-42 was once a top-secret, Soviet military complex. Stalin had commissioned it to be made after the United States created a nuclear bomb. 65 meters (or about 213 feet) underground, was the desired depth to protect Russia’s top officials from a nuclear attack.

Now, it is a museum dedicated… Read more »

US Capitol

I’m becoming somewhat of an unwilling expert on visiting cities in a very short amount of time! Our whirlwind trip to DC was a bit more work than play, but I did manage to spend an afternoon exploring some of the main sights of Washington, D.C.

Guest post by Amy Smith Reno is known as the “Biggest Little City in the world,” and a neon arch greets you with that phrase as you enter the city. Reno is a small enough place that you can walk around it comfortably, but big enough that you can still get lost in the world of flashing lights and entertainment.
