Trip Report A Gllorious Month in Europe!

Jump to last reply

Just back from my 53rd visit to Europe and my best - the latest is always my best!

Highlights included Barcelona, Paris, Rome, Venice, Florence, the Interlaken or Jungfrau Region of Switzerland, Vienna, Prague, Munich, and last but certainly not least Amsterdamned, damned, damned, damn on the Continent before heading to London via the Chunnel from Brussels!

There was great beer and wine everywhere!!

The weather was a bit cool in France as were the locals!

I was pickpocketed in Paris, Rome, Florence and Prague.

I was mugged in Barcelona.

I saw the Mona Lisa and prayed in St Peter's.

I loved the cheese in France, the beer in Germany, the bud in Amsterdamned, the pizza in Italy, chocolate in Belgium, tapas in Spain, fondue in Switzerland and Sacher torte in Vienna (but in England nothing tasted good!).

I traveled by train with a first-class railpass and eneded up in London via the Chunnel train.

Oh well a fabulous trip of a lifetime. I went to the Isle of wight for my 64th birthday.

I saw the Queen at one of her 60th years on the throne shindigs - and Prince Charles too!

Oh well I can't wait to go back!
