It’s been a whirlwind few weeks since we touched down at Heathrow. And the thing is, not every single one of the places we’ve visited warrants a post of its own. Between London and Germany, I haven’t really felt inspired to put pen to paper at length about any of the towns or cities we’ve passed through. So instead, you get a brief summary:
Edinburgh – as one commenter on my London post put it, London failed to truly capture her heart, and I have to agree. Edinburgh, on the other hand? Absolutely brimming with charm – and yes, the accents. Plus, can you imagine walking past a ginormous castle every single day?
Brussels – epic street murals. Oh, and waffles. Otherwise, it was a tad dull, to be honest. I wanted to stop in at Bruges as well, but instead we next visited…
Maastricht – thanks to the Yes and Yes Amsterdam mini travel guide, I was alerted to this quaint little southern Dutch town. Bring a full wallet and empty stomach; unfortunately I did this the wrong way around.
Amsterdam – all we expected, really, from canals to bikes to coffee shops and parks, trams and the red light district.
Until I get around to fleshing out my thoughts on Germany, here’s some more good reading to whet your appetite.
