All of the Things and all of the places

Following fall break, we were all exhausted, but the traveling couldn't stop there! My next Spark depicts my adventures after fall break up until my road trip along the French northern coast and our Paris excursion with class.

Leverkusen

Our first weekend back from break, we got to experience a German "football" game. Thank you Kim for this adorable photo!

Dusseldorf

I have been to Dusseldorf several times, a couple of times for school purposes and once to see Cirque Du Soleil. Dusseldorf is a beautiful city with vibrant spaces.

Cologne

I don't think that I am technically allowed to post these, but oh well. We took a short trip to Cologne – which is 30 minutes north of Bonn – to visit the cathedral. I love the flying buttresses and beautiful detail put into the architecture of the cathedral.

Essen

We took a school trip to Essen to visit the Zollverein Coal Mine and Margarethenhohe Village. The coal mine has been turned into a beautiful park and museum and the village is a perfect example of a long-time planned community.

Brussels

Our first day in Brussels, we went out to the Atomium which was an important aspect of the 1958 World Fair. Later, we walked through a nature park that was used as a part of the fair grounds.
Photo red goes to Kim Spaulding for half of these!
This was a big foodie weekend for us – definitely the best waffles I have EVER had!!

Amsterdam (p. 2)

Since this was my second time to be in Amsterdam, I really enjoyed being able to just take everything in without feeling like I had to take all new pictures. It also allowed me to appreciate littler things! P.S. shout out to Kim Spaulding for the last pic!

London

We only were in London for one rainy day – which was a little ridiculous – but it was well worth the trip. We put ourselves on a Big Bus tour and got to see more of the city than I thought we could! We saw Big ben, Buckinghamd Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Eye, and so much more! I even got to eat at a Giraffe Cafe while we waited in the airport.

Ireland

Dublin & Cliffs of Moher

Our first day in Ireland, we had beautiful weather at the Cliffs. It was so cold and windy, though, and I felt like I might have gotten swept off of the cliff! We also had a short stay in the Burren – a rocky, biodiverse coastline – and the small town of Galway.
Don't worry ma, I didn't fall in!
Our second day was the "Dublin adventures" day. We walked through the Guinness Brewery, had lunch at the oldest pub in the country, saw the Dublin Castle, and tried some awesome tarts.
