Here we are, gathered at the Omaha airport, waiting for our short flight to Minneapolis and then the much longer flight to Amsterdam. We are practically buzzing with excitement for all of the amazing adventures we’re about to have!
Here is a quick rundown of where we’ll be in Europe and what we’ll be doing:
We begin in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
We will take a canal ride, see the Anne Frank House, visit the Red Light District, and see the Van Gogh Museum. We will then take an overnight train to…
Prague, Czech Republic
We will see the Old Town Square, take a ghost tour, see some castles and spend New Years Eve on the Charles Bridge watching fireworks! After New Years, we’re off to…
Here we will see the Marienplatz and Dachau Concentration Camp. We’ll take a day trip to Salzburg in Austria. We’ll see some more castles outside of Munich and visit Olympic Park. Next stop is…
Rome and Florence in Italy.
Rome features the Coliseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps, seeing the Mediterranean Sea, Vatican City, Sistine Chapel, then a nice day trip to Pompeii. Then we’re off to Florence to see Michaelangelo’s David statue and whatever else we can see in one day.
Paris, France is our next stop.
Here we get to see the Eiffel Tower, Arch de Triumph, Notre Dame, and the Louvre.
London, United Kingdom will wrap up our tour
With the Piccadilly Circus, a day trip to Stonehenge and Bath, seeing the Changing of the Guard, Westminister Abbey, and the Imperial War Museum.
Now this is just a taste of what’s to come. Watch out for a post (hopefully almost) everyday, and pictures if I can figure that out! We will be 7 hours ahead time-wise the whole trip except for in London, which will be 6 hours ahead. Wish me luck adjusting to that as well as the different currencies. Talk to you soon!
