    London, United Kingdom

    May 2, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Hop-on, Hop-off bus today and ticked off some serious must-see sights! Started early with coffee and a walk in Hyde Park. It was a foggy morning which was really pretty. One of our favourite spots in London. Next we headed to the city to Buckingham Palace, Wellington Arch, Westminster Abbey, Elizabeth Towers (Big Ben), The Tower of London, and the Tower Bridge. It was great to tick so many boxes and get to see so many of London's biggest attractions in one day.Read more

    Bath, United Kingdom

    May 4, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Visited the City of Bath, including the Roman Baths today. The entire city is a World Heritage Site consisting of very well preserved Roman religious spas from the ancient world. Thermal springs flowing beneath the city fill the baths with naturally hot water. Lisa and I also found a great private park located on the banks of the River Anon for tea and scones, as you do in country England.Read more

    Stonehenge, United Kingdom

    May 4, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Very cool to be able to get out to the sacred site of Stonehenge today. The structure was built between 4000 and 5000 years ago and comprises numerous stones up to 9 metres tall and weighing up to 25 tons. Some of the stones have been traced to parts of western Wales, 225km away. Still to this day, the transportation, build methods, and even the purpose of Stonehenge remain unknown.Read more

  • Day6

    Bruges, Belgium

    May 6, 2017 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    "Maybe bacon and waffles!" - Lisa Maguire anticipating her lunch.

    Our first official stop for lunch in Bruges in northern Belgium, which is one of Europe's best preserved medieval cities. It was a little stressful, being our first stop and our first experience with the language barrier. We had a walk around Burg Square and the surrounds and had waffles and beer for lunch. Then we were back on the coach bound for The Netherlands!Read more

  • Day6

    Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    May 6, 2017 in the Netherlands ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    The Netherlands is a low-lying country with approximately 25 per cent of its area below sea level. Netherlands actually means 'the lowlands'. We arrived in Amsterdam in the late afternoon, checked in to our hotel, and then headed in to the centre for a some free time, dinner, and to check out the Red Light District and some "cafés" (wink, wink...).Read more

  • Day7

    Amstelveen, Netherlands

    May 7, 2017 in the Netherlands ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    This morning we headed to Amstelveen for a lesson in cheese making and a clog making demonstration. Lisa was far more interested in the baby cows and chickens! Haha :) From here we went to Zaanse Schans, a historical windmill village.Read more
