Europe – Day 11 – February 4th, 2018: Antwerp, Belgium to Amsterdam, The Netherlands


We got some pretty good rest last night and headed out around 9. When we got to the station it was right on time to catch our first train of the day to go to Amsterdam, and to finish the trip a train change in Rotterdam. We saw a couple of classic windmills yesterday as … Continue reading Europe – Day 11 – February 4th, 2018: Antwerp, Belgium to Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Europe – Day 9 – February 2nd, 2018: Luxembourg to Köln, Germany


Last night we decided that our next destination would be Köln (Cologne), Germany after some recommendations from the girl who helped us yesterday and my friend Kevin, who had been there before. We got up this morning and decided to skip going into central Luxembourg so we could get an earlier train to Germany. We … Continue reading Europe – Day 9 – February 2nd, 2018: Luxembourg to Köln, Germany

Europe – Day 8 – February 1st, 2018: Brussels, Belgium to Luxembourg


Our hotel was in a central area near downtown so the train stops were not very far apart for where we wanted to go. The area we were in was very interesting to see in the daylight. Most of the buildings were not what I expected - modern and minimalist. Function over form. We cut … Continue reading Europe – Day 8 – February 1st, 2018: Brussels, Belgium to Luxembourg

Europe – Day 7 – January 31st, 2018: London, England and Brussels, Belgium


That's right...back to the Continent today. We got up and went back to the bakery I went to yesterday and grabbed a fresh croissant with ham and cheese, coffee, and another piece of raspberry torte. Our train was not until this afternoon so we took in a bus ride and did some more sightseeing before … Continue reading Europe – Day 7 – January 31st, 2018: London, England and Brussels, Belgium

Europe – Day 6 – January 30th, 2018: London, England


Today we got up early to go to the launderette. We were both out of clean clothes and this was a good day to do it since we had the opportunity. It was just a few blocks away but we had to get breakfast first so we went to a coffee shop we saw last … Continue reading Europe – Day 6 – January 30th, 2018: London, England

Europe – Day 5 – January 29th, 2018: London, England


Cheers from our next stop...London! We flew into London and arrived around noon or so. Not as early as we wanted and the plane boarding and leaving late was unacceptable. We flew easyJet and they were pretty disorganized. Flight attendants were nice but the gate people just were not Fortunately, this was our last flight … Continue reading Europe – Day 5 – January 29th, 2018: London, England

Europe – Day 4 – January 28th, 2018: Edinburgh, Scotland


We got some really good sleep last night (8 hours!) in Dublin. We both missed out on a couple of things we wanted to see but we had to have some downtime to get over walking an average of six miles a day on hard pavement. The exercise is great but pavement is not a … Continue reading Europe – Day 4 – January 28th, 2018: Edinburgh, Scotland
