I just got back from the most amazing trip of my life. And by “just” I mean about a week ago, I’ve just been too busy pretending I’m still on vacation to get back to my normal routine and update you all. My boyfriend and I spent two weeks in Europe and it could not have been more perfect. We were gone from June 25th to July 11th and hit seven cities and 5 countries during that time:
- Croatia (Dubrovnik, Split, Rovinj)
- Italy (Venice)
- Germany (Munich and the surrounding area)
- Denmark (Copenhagen)
- The Netherlands (Amsterdam)
The trip started because my dear friend from high school was getting married in her village outside of Munich. Knowing that we’d be traveling that far to begin with, we decided to make a full vacation out of it. What started as just a week somehow turned into two weeks, and I’m so glad it did. Our first week was in Croatia and Italy, which was a nice beach-style vacation allowing us to relax together and enjoy to sun and beach.
Then my younger sister joined us for the wedding in Germany and stayed until the bitter end in Amsterdam. Well technically she had to leave a day before us, but we’ll pretend she stayed to the bitter end. The second week after the wedding was much cooler and more urban, filled with racing around the respective cities and fitting in as many sites (and desserts) as possible. I fully intend to do a dedicated post on each stop during our trip, but I figured I’d start out with the highlights. It’s a good way to give you an overview of our trip without overloading you on pictures … that part is sure to follow in the next few weeks. I will only be posting photos cause they’re worth 1,000 words … so here’s bunches of thousands of words in photo form:
1. The View from our Balcony in Dubrovnik
2. Swimming on Lokrum in Dubrovnik
3. The square outside of Luxor in Split
4. Plitvice Lakes Park
5. The Sunset in Rovinj
6. The Glass Factory in Murano (Venice)
7. My Friend’s Wedding Outside of Munich
8. Eating like a local in Copenhagen
9. Eating like a local in Amsterdam
10. Skins Cosmetics in Amsterdam
I hope you enjoyed the highlights and I can’t wait to tell you more about each city we visited! Also, I would like to be back on my European vacation, if anyone could make that happen. Ok, thanks!
What’s your favorite trip you’ve ever taken?
