Glimpses of Europe

Glimpses of Europe

Here are some glimpses of lovely Europe.  We enjoyed our recent journey to some neat countries.  You can experience some of our travels without any aching feet (which I had on most days).  In the pic above, Larry and I are standing before the large, handsome Royal Palace in Brussels Belgium.  A pretty, green park spreads out in front of it on the other side of the street.  And no, we were not invited inside -- an oversight, I'm quite sure.

The Town Square in beautiful Brugge, Belgium
 
Canals, canals and more canals in Amsterdam, Netherlands
 
In Amsterdam, we boarded the Holland America Koningsdam for a 14-night cruise
 
I was excited to see this famous view of Copenhagen, Denmark called Nyhaven
 
I daresay there is not a single TJMaxx in America that is located in a building as pretty and historic as this one in Rostock, Germany.
 
Not the greatest picture of us, but the wonderful medieval town of Tallinn Estonia is like a beautiful fairy tale village.
 
It was hard to choose which picture to use from St. Petersburg, Russia, but I just loved this Church of the Spilt Blood.  The interior is literally covered in mosaics primarily depicting the life of Christ.  It's a really beautiful church.
 
It was a lovely day in Helsinki, Finland, and we saw beautiful spring flowers along the way.
 
My favorite thing about Stockholm, Sweden was the narrow European streets that I love. It was our one rainy day on the whole cruise.
 
It was a beautiful sunny day in Kiel, Germany.  Here's a view of their Town Hall across a lake.
 
Aarhus, Denmark was our last stop on the cruise.  It is a lovely medieval town and it was a pretty day.  Here is a view down a lane with colorful old houses.  It was so picturesque.
 
We are thankful for our grand journey and as always, so thankful to be home.
