My trip to Europe (well Paris, Dresden, Berlin and London) was awesome! I think at times I still can’t believe all the things I saw and experienced. I am not even going to try to fit it all in one post so I am going to try to break it up over the next few posts for you guys (also means more pictures ). Here is the abridged version of the trip itinerary so you have an idea of what lies ahead in future posts:
Friday, October 12th – Leave for Paris
Saturday, October 13th – Arrive in Paris at 9:45am (3:45am EST – my normal time)
Thursday, October 18th – Train ride from Paris to Dresden
Sunday, October 21st – Dresden Marathon
Tuesday, October 23rd – Train ride from Dresden to Berlin
Thursday, October 25th – Flight from Berlin to London
Monday, October 29th – Head home – Arrive in Montreal, Canada but last two flights canceled, have to spend the night in Montreal. :-/
Tuesday, October 30th – Finally Home
As you can see it was a fairly long and crazy trip especially for my first trip to Europe. Not sure what I was thinking with this one but my sister seemed to be ok with this craziness. My sister, Sara (an experienced traveler), helped guide me through my first, and hopefully not last, trip to Europe with her guide books and travel knowhow. I guess for some reason I didn’t put together what her Bachelors in History and her over ten years of work experience in history museums would really mean for me in Europe: a lot of museums. The girl is crazy about museums but we did see some other things too. I also believe she passed the love for international travel on to me too since before we even got back home we were having discussions on where I would run my next international marathon.
Well, I think with this post I will leave the crowd wanting more…mainly because I think if I keep typing I will start talking too much about the trip and not know where to stop but also the hips are not happy from the 5k I ran on Sunday so i need to stop to do some stretching and icing before bed. Next post, Paris.
