Finland, Estonia, Holland, France, Belgium 10/17
Hello from Luxembourg. It has been an eventful couple weeks since we last posted. We arrived into Helsinki, Finland via high speed train from St. Petersburg, Russia, spent a couple days wandering around the city and eventually caught a boat to Tallinn, Estonia. We weren’t in any rush to leave Estonia, so we spent a week at a nice hostel, relaxed, and saw the city at our own pace. We even rented a car for a day and drove out into the countryside of Estonia. From Estonia, we flew to Amsterdam, Holland. We arrived a day early so we could check into the apartment and do some prep work for the arrival of Jenny’s mom and sister, Katie. Once we collected them from the airport, minus one bag, we were off, walking around the city and seeing the sights. From Amsterdam, we took a high speed train to Paris, France where we saw the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, The Louvre, and even Joaquin Ruiz, Diego’s brother from Paraguay. After a cold and rainy Paris, it was onto another train headed for Brussels, Belgium, home of the fries, waffles, chocolate and delicious beers. Several junk food meals later, it was back to Amsterdam for their flight home. We spent a couple more days in the city and then rented a car. Our first stop was Brugge, Belgium, then onto Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, where we are now. We had a great time with Debby and Katie. We saw a ton of great sights, ate a bunch of unhealthy foods, and drank some great local beers. We have a few more days to get to Munich, Germany before Brad’s parents arrive. We can’t wait. Enjoy the photos!
We hope you are enjoying the posts. We are off to explore a bit of Luxembourg before driving on toward Strasbourg, France and eventually Munich, Germany.
Until next time,
