Hey it’s a new Weekend Edition pic. Who knows where it’s at? Comment your guess below.

—BRRR… INDOOR ACTIVITIES—
Ok, so the cold weather isn’t for everyone… we understand that. So for the rest of the winter, we’ll post indoor activities for those of you that shiver easily. If you have any ideas for the list, make sure you send them to us! This is what we got for now.
*Gondwana Pre-historic Museum
Only 45 minutes away, this family friendly Pre-historic Museum is sure to keep your family busy for hours.
*Rulantica at Europa Park
Next to Europa Park is their new massive indoor water park! With 17 slides and a 250 meter lazy river, this is sure to be great for the whole family.
*Bastogne Museum (closes Jan 19th for annual closure)
2.5hr drive in Bastogne, Belgium, experience this town’s tribute to the events during WWII and it’s liberation by the 101st Airborne. A chilling museum that everyone should experience!
I love river cruises, because it’s a way to see a lot in a little time. It’s also a great way to relax with friends or enjoy a date day trip. You can spend a few hours warm inside the boat, or you can get off and explore the villages. Our favorite one is between Rüdesheim and St. Goarhausen. There are many lines available, but I recommend K-D!!
