“Planes, Trains and Automobiles” was our theme this year for our travels through Europe for the holidays. One of the amazing benefits of travel is meeting other travelers from all over the world who are just as excited as you are about trying something like warm honey wine, visiting Notre Dame Cathedral or traveling on a high speed train for the first time. Travel makes us feel alive.
This post is a summary of our travels with a few pics. Later we will post more pics from the cities we visited.
