Vacation Experience


The trip was labeled “An Introduction to Europe”. That meant it was a tantalizing taste of all the areas we visited. A few hours in Brussels is not enough to fully appreciate the historical Medieval Grand-Place square, let alone all the other areas of the city. The same is true for Heidelberg Germany, Lucerne Switzerland, and Lichtenstein. We had two days in Paris, which was a little better.

The sun on the top of the Alps is a sight not to be missed. But it is certainly cold up there and I forgot my gloves…

As you can see, it was cloudy (with some rain) in Paris. The sun came out the afternoon before our flight out. Then there is the Louvre, Musee d’Orsee, Notre Dame, and, or course, Saint Chappell. Of course we can’t forget the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, the Lichtenstein royal castle, the Black Forest, etc, etc, etc.

Reading? Only two and a half books. Despite what my sister says, I was enjoying the vacation too much to read much. (OK, one was so good I was reading during the traffic jam in the Alps. I missed some of the breathtaking views, but never for long.)

    That’s the sort of trip you need more time for! But it still sounds amazing. I’m so glad you had the experience. :0)
