Back home, but my heart’s still in Europe

Well, I’m home again. It was a short trip, but even better than anything I had imagined (which I did not believe was possible!)

I’m going to make several posts about my trip in more detail in the upcoming days, but I will say that there was a fair amount of castle exploring, spontaneous adventures, (attempted) Alps climbing, and European loving. I admit, I cried on the flight back home, and vowed that I’ll be back next year to make this place home.

For now, here’s a small preview of where my travels in Europe took me Β πŸ™‚

Paris, France
Aachen, Germany
Cologne, Germany
Dusseldorf, Germany
Berlin, Germany
Munich, Germany
Tubingen, Germany
Zurich, Switzerland

    Lucky you! I agree, there's nothing like Europe. I find myself missing my home though, even when I know that there's bathroom remodeling nyc work going on.

    I have a great home designed and constructed by Long Island home builders. I love it to death, but sometimes I get pangs of homesickness for my home state.
