Trip Report My totally Awesome Trip 2012!

Jump to last reply

Just back from yet another fantastic trip to Europe - and had a simply wonderful time. Here are the places I visited:

AMSTERDAMNED - Flew in there and stayed a few days. The literal hi-light of my trip. So cerebral - a city that never ceases to disappoint me. even in late fall the city had a magic touch.

Night Train to MUNICH - spent day in a city that I can never really understand why it is so popular in light of to me many more romantic and older-looking ('Europe of our dreams) cities but I always have fun.

Night Train to VENICE

Venice - Fantastic! Loveliest city in the world - even better in off season than when elbow to elbow in summer. And yes the fog really does creep in on little cat feet and the floods roll in like an elephant - enjoyed swimming in St Mark's Square. Yup I really immersed myself in Venice this time!

ROME - I am eternally in love with Rome.

FLORENCE - I felt some kind of rebirth in Florence as I usually do. Awesome baby!

NICE was very nice!

TGV Train to Paris - ah gay Paree - so so formidable, extraordinaire, incroyable, fantastic!

Spend some days with French friends in my old stomping ground of Orleans, about which the best thing I can say is it is an ordinary and bustling French regional town.

Chunnel Train to London. I never tire of London - always keeps me alive. Weird I noticed a dramatic decline in the number of song birds in London and other places I day tripped to - was I imagining it or have cats wiped out the bird population in the few years since I was last there?

Flew home from London. Traveled all by train - first class of course!

OK - Will continue my trip report by breaking down what I seen and done in each stop. Again the trip was totally awesome!
