A Journey Around Europe

I’ve had a fabulous year of travel in Europe visiting Paris, Bologna, Venice, Amsterdam, Sorrento, London and I had an all too brief stop in Rome last weekend.  Bruges is on the cards for December and I’m really excited about visiting the Christmas markets to get me in a festive mood – I may even be forced to sample some Belgian chocolate!  There’s nothing I like more than the buzz of a city, the cafe and bar culture, the famous sights and landmarks, museums and of course a bit of shopping. What’s not to love!

  1. How lucky that you’ll be visiting Bruges in December ..I’m looking forward to your report on visiting the Christmas markets. If their markets are anything like those in Germany you’ll be enjoying a lot of amazing food. And buying a Christmas decoration or two!

    • Back from Bruges – just a flying visit. The Bruges markets weren’t nearly as good as the ones I’ve visited in Munich but lots of lovely decorations to be found :)

  2. Venice is still one of my favorite cities. Paris is nice but a little overwhelming.

    • I’ve not visited Paris properly for about 13 years – about time I re-visited :)

  3. Bruges turned out to be one of my favorite cities (large town) in Europe. I’ve never been to Amsterdam (wassup with that?), but my husband assured me that Bruges was like Amsterdam, lite. There were plenty of picturesque canals. We also went on a tour of the World War I battlefields around Bruges and Ypres. It was a Flanders Fields tour by Quasimodo, a husband and wife operation. It was very intense and moving. Along country roads, you still come upon little piles of unexploded WW I shells left by farmers to be collected by the ordnance disposal team.

    • That’s great to hear as I’m visiting on Monday! I have just one day in Bruges but would love to go back as I have an interest in the battlefields and WWI and II (I live in Battle of 1066 Battle of Hastings fame!)

    • I did too – it’s such a wonderful city. I have a few blog posts about it if you’d like to take a look. Would go back anytime :)

    • Thank you! I can’t admit to a favourite city as they’re all so different but Italy as a country is right up there! :)

    • I’d like to say they were all leisure trips but mostly for work with a couple of hours sightseeing squeezed in – not complaining though!
