Embracing Adventure “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” ~~Hellen Keller

Elsewhere in Europe

While living in Germany, I got the opportunity to see some other places in Europe as well. You’ll find those here listed by country then city with links to each that I’ve written about so far.  If you are interested in my experiences in Germany, those are here and are listed by German state then city/town.

Denmark

Copenhagen
I went on an Outdoor Recreation trip here in June 2014 but haven’t posted about it yet except in passing.

England

London
I lead an Outdoor Recreation trip here in October 2015 but haven’t posted about it yet.

France
Strasbourg
I went on a day trip here in February 2013 when I saw a protest, went to the Cathédrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg and Grande Ile, then ate dinner and wandered the city.

Paris
I visited the city itself twice on Outdoor Recreation trips. The first time in June 2015 I only saw a bit of it as I took the train to Versailles and spent most of the day there. The second time in August 2015, I spent the whole day wandering the city. On another Outdoor Recreation trip in June 2015, I went to Disneyland Paris, which is technically in Marne-la-Vallée but which I’ll list under Paris as it’s named after that city. So far I’ve only posted tips about Disneyland Paris but haven’t posted about my trips.

Versailles
I went to Versailles during an Outdoor Recreation trip to Paris in June 2015. Aside from walking to the palace I didn’t really see the city. I spent most of the day exploring the estate at the Palace of Versailles.

Italy

Venice
I got to take several trips to Venice. In July and September 2015 I lead Outdoor Recreation trips there. In October 2015 I took a bus down to Vicenza for a weekend and went to Venice by car one of the days there.

2 Thoughts on “Elsewhere in Europe

  1. Can’t wait to hear about your Lloret de Mar and Barcelona adventures!

    • They’re coming up soon 🙂 I have a bunch of blog hop posts for the Christmas spectacular, a couple in the two day break to explain to people what happened to Overseas Adventures and what new changes I made to categories and stuff, and a handful of posts about other stuff and then it’ll be time for Lloret and Barcelona (the latter of which is WAY better than the former lol).
