I thought I would share a little about our last vacation. Last summer, before Charles went to BMT (aka boot camp), we went on a trip to Europe. We flew into Brussels and took a train to Brugge. From Brugge, we went to Amsterdam. From Amsterdam we flew to Dublin (one of my favorites). From Dublin we flew to Cologne, Germany. And from Cologne we took a train to Stuttgart, Germany. Sounds complicated, but luckily my husband is a whiz at navigating train schedules and hailing taxis and such. It was a great trip.
One of my favorite things about traveling in Europe is seeing all the old churches. I love the architecture. I love the artwork. I love the history. It's so cool to walk around these churches that have been around for hundreds of years and imagine the great artists that have worked there or created things for that church. Or to think about all the varieties of people that have been through.
Another favorite thing is the chocolate. Places such as Belgium, Germany and Switzerland have the best chocolate in the world!
Here are a few pictures:
|Church in Cologne. It's HUGE! You can climb the bell tower. I passed because I'm afraid of heights. Charles went up and got some good pictures of the town.|
