A to C with Nowhere to B Epilogue

 •  112

By

We’re back together for a look back at A to C with Nowhere to B! We had absolutely so much fun traveling with you guys, and truth be told, we didn’t want to see it end. In this epilogue, we share some of the things you didn’t get to see on the show, including some honest reviews of places we stayed, ate at, and visited. We’re also talking more about our train experiences and what we might do differently next time.

About the Author

Hi. I’m Juliana Dever and according to science I have some sort of "exploration" gene. Embracing this compulsion, I spend a lot of time hurtling around the planet in metal tubes experiencing other cultures and writing humorous essays about it. Enjoy.

    Melatonin for jet lag?

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:42 pm /Reply

      sometimes it works for me and sometimes the jet lag is stronger. 😡

  7. Karen Bate / August 7, 2018 at 12:29 pm /Reply

    You’re lucky!! Yes, I do the water thing. Maybe my problem is age :p

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:20 pm /Reply

      I have to say I used to think you could beat it. Now I realize it’s fairly random. There are times when it hits me so hard and there are times when I don’t get it at all. I do think it has to do with how much sleep you can get on the plane. And of course loads of water helps.

  8. Karen Bate / August 7, 2018 at 12:30 pm /Reply

    my God!! til 3 in the morning!!!!!!!

  9. Rianne De Vaan / August 7, 2018 at 12:30 pm /Reply

    I find that is the best way, keep going until a normal bedtime.

  10. Patricia Jacobs / August 7, 2018 at 12:30 pm /Reply

    Water definitely helps!

  11. Lisa LaGoo Powell / August 7, 2018 at 12:30 pm /Reply

    Awesome system.

    Hi

  13. Femke Oosterom / August 7, 2018 at 12:31 pm /Reply

    Suitcase or backpack ?

  14. Lynette Epp / August 7, 2018 at 12:31 pm /Reply

    Awesome! Thanks!! Makes perfect sense!!

  15. Esther Verhoef / August 7, 2018 at 12:31 pm /Reply

    Wow that is handy the booking.com thing tnx

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:48 pm /Reply

      I use Booking.com all over the world. It’s got better prices than the hotels themselves often, access to apartments and is super easy to use. 👍🏼

    • Lisa LaGoo Powell / August 9, 2018 at 12:10 pm /Reply

      Best deals!

  16. Karen Bate / August 7, 2018 at 12:31 pm /Reply

    You guys ever use AirBnB? I’ve had wonderful luck with that, and cheaper than hotels

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:19 pm /Reply

      quite often. I’ve had many great Airbnbs. I’ve also had a couple awful ones. It really comes down to the vibe of the city, how long I’m staying, what mood I’m in (if I want services or to cook for myself). Lots of variables.

  17. Ruth L Wolseley / August 7, 2018 at 12:32 pm /Reply

    How do you sleep on a plane any tips

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:40 pm /Reply

      wine! lol. I also bring my own cushy eye mask, ear plugs or white noise recording on my ipod. I have a hard time with neck pillows, but I do have a quilted little pillow case that I can put my jacket or whatever in and use as well.

    • Rachel Leah Cohen / August 9, 2018 at 11:23 am /Reply

      wine….. its true….

  18. Lynette Epp / August 7, 2018 at 12:32 pm /Reply

    Used booking.com on my US roadtrip & in Bali…

  19. Ann Elizabeth Garrett / August 7, 2018 at 12:32 pm /Reply

    Good to know

  20. Nacho Choza de Juan / August 7, 2018 at 12:32 pm /Reply

    Would you rather drive instead of train?

    • Rachel Leah Cohen / August 9, 2018 at 11:16 am /Reply

      I really loved the train. I very rarely “train” in the US so its fun and exciting!

  21. Linda Prijt / August 7, 2018 at 12:32 pm /Reply

    Yeahhhh

  22. Esther Verhoef / August 7, 2018 at 12:33 pm /Reply

    That’s is great tip😂😂

  23. Isabelle Bagchus / August 7, 2018 at 12:33 pm /Reply

    Favorite moment was when Rachel asked where the Eiffeltower was 😂

  24. Rianne De Vaan / August 7, 2018 at 12:33 pm /Reply

    That works. That’s why i have ny homebase with my parents.

  25. Karen Bate / August 7, 2018 at 12:33 pm /Reply

    Cool. 😀 I sponged off of friends in London. Love that washing machine!

  26. Rhonda Vaughan / August 7, 2018 at 12:33 pm /Reply

    I have a German friend

  27. Nacho Choza de Juan / August 7, 2018 at 12:33 pm /Reply

    I loved that part in Slovenia

  28. Esther Verhoef / August 7, 2018 at 12:33 pm /Reply

    Ooh yeah the Eiffeltower was fun

  29. Linda Prijt / August 7, 2018 at 12:33 pm /Reply

    And my little Red Devil

  30. Nacho Choza de Juan / August 7, 2018 at 12:34 pm /Reply

    I like trains

  31. Cathy Stemmler Stratoti / August 7, 2018 at 12:34 pm /Reply

    Did you bring back any fun souvenirs?

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:26 pm /Reply

      I rarely do anymore. But I did bring back a glorious bottle of orange wine from Slovenia from a small producer and some lemon Becherovka from Prague. Oh! and some gouda biscuits from Amsterdam. For me it’s all experience and consumables that remind me of a place.

    • Cathy Stemmler Stratoti / August 7, 2018 at 1:29 pm /Reply

      I like to bring back a small piece of local art or local craft I can display that reminds me of where I was. Either that or a Christmas Ornament that I can enjoy every year.

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:55 pm /Reply

      I used to do a Christmas ornament from everywhere! I think I stopped because I don’t usually even put up the tree anymore – I just leave the country instead. lol.

    • Rachel Leah Cohen / August 9, 2018 at 11:19 am /Reply

      I buy a little pin in every city/country…I still don’t know what to do with them all!

    • Cathy Stemmler Stratoti / August 9, 2018 at 11:40 am /Reply

      Rachel Leah Cohen That is a fun thing to get. Maybe a bulletin board display or put them through a thick ribbon and hang on your wall. Any favorite or unique pins?

  32. Pia Roos / August 7, 2018 at 12:34 pm /Reply

    Would love to go on a trip with you girls. I know it would be an awesome trip with lots of laughs and fun💕

  33. Ann Elizabeth Garrett / August 7, 2018 at 12:34 pm /Reply

    I love staying in hostels. You meet the greatest people!!

  34. Esther Verhoef / August 7, 2018 at 12:35 pm /Reply

    You girls are not old😘

  35. Karen Bate / August 7, 2018 at 12:35 pm /Reply

    YOU’RE too old for big suitcases?!?? LOLOLOL!!!

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:18 pm /Reply

      I am not 18! I will if I have to, but if I have a choice, I’m gonna be wheeling my bag!

  36. Nacho Choza de Juan / August 7, 2018 at 12:35 pm /Reply

    Where would you say you got the BEST FOOD?

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:36 pm /Reply

      Oh we had so much excellent food. But it has to be a tie between the chateau we were talking about in Slovenia and the pasta cooked with cognac inside a parmesan wheel in Baden-Baden.

    • Rachel Leah Cohen / August 9, 2018 at 11:15 am /Reply

      I liked the food in Majerija. 3.5 hour meal…worth every penny and calorie!

  37. Femke Oosterom / August 7, 2018 at 12:35 pm /Reply

    Thank you !!!

  38. Rhonda Vaughan / August 7, 2018 at 12:35 pm /Reply

  41. Rianne De Vaan / August 7, 2018 at 12:36 pm /Reply

    We need a weekly episode, on vacation or not

  42. Ruth L Wolseley / August 7, 2018 at 12:36 pm /Reply

    If you guys are too old what on Earth does that make me 😜🤣😱😂

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:14 pm /Reply

      Just for that super big hiker’s back pack!! But if you enjoy it, that’s awesome. But I can no longer entertain the massive pack. I need wheeled bags and preferably a porter. lol.

    • Ruth L Wolseley / August 9, 2018 at 1:20 pm /Reply

      CleverDever Wherever I definitely need something with wheels these days I’ve done the backpack thing I had a luggage malfunction on the London Underground but thankfully has 3 remaining wheels so limped to my accommodation via the news agent at Waterloo who thankfully sold superglue which kept the case usable till I finished my trip and got home 😜

  43. Esther Verhoef / August 7, 2018 at 12:36 pm /Reply

    I wanna go😍

  44. Pia Roos / August 7, 2018 at 12:36 pm /Reply

    • Karen Bate / August 7, 2018 at 6:18 pm /Reply

      CleverDever Wherever This I like to hear! As I’ve mentioned, I’m already booked for May. Outside of that I’d be eagerly trying for one of those 12 spots!

    Yay! Mappy Map!

  57. Patricia Jacobs / August 7, 2018 at 12:45 pm /Reply

    You hated the cake?😢 The piece I had atop the castle was delicious. Maybe it had to do with the view!

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:12 pm /Reply

      I’ll be honest, I did not love it.

    • Rachel Leah Cohen / August 7, 2018 at 1:24 pm /Reply

      Hate is a strong word… but it wasn’t super exciting..

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 1:56 pm /Reply

      Context does have a lot to do with it. We got it at the fancy pants hotel on the water and the view was OF the castle, but the service was lacking for sure.

      is the waitlist the same as the e-mail list? (and was the last e-mail on july 6th?)

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 7:00 pm /Reply

      Last email was probably right before I left for Amsterdam, so I’m going to say yes. If you’re on the email list then you are in the right place. You will be getting more info all month!

      The netherlands in the beginning of march next year for carnaval. 😉

    For anyone thinking of going to Slovenia/Lake Bled area, you have to hire Tina Hiti for the day (or more). She runs PG Slovenia. You can check her out here: http://www.pg-slovenia.com/

    Europe ❤️ of course first Holland again ……

  65. Arlene Stephanie / August 7, 2018 at 2:07 pm /Reply

    Yeah I was in China and was told I had to see the Chinese opera. Never. Again. (sorry China, it may have been the culture shock)

    • CleverDever Wherever / August 7, 2018 at 6:59 pm /Reply

      We don’t have to like everything, no apology necessary. 😉

    • Arlene Stephanie / August 8, 2018 at 12:57 am /Reply

      There was one highlight. Someone on the show played the erhu (Chinese violin), it was beautiful and I would never have seen it if I hadn’t gone to the opera.

  66. Arlene Stephanie / August 7, 2018 at 2:13 pm /Reply

    I still want to try the cake, cuz coffee (and the barista in me makes me curious *winkwink*)

  67. Arlene Stephanie / August 7, 2018 at 2:18 pm /Reply

    I think The Netherlands and Slovenia are at the top of the list because it’s the places we saw the most of.

  68. Arlene Stephanie / August 7, 2018 at 2:20 pm /Reply

    Maastricht will happen for you!
