We have only explored a small part of Europe, but we already have a million memories. We ventured through Iceland, England, Ireland and Amsterdam, before traveling through France, Monaco and Spain. It was an incredible journey and we can’t wait until later this year when we return to Europe to explore further for a million more wonderful memories.
And we love nothing more than sharing our incredible memories with you all. And as they say, a picture tells a thousand words, so here is our 18,000 word essay about the Best of Europe Photo Essay. (if only it was that easy in high school!).
Nice, France – Harbor and city views from above
Barcelona, Spain – One of Antoni Gaudi’s famous architectural master pieces.
Agolada, Spain – The stone houses on cobble stoned streets, simply beautiful.
London, England – One of the icons of the UK; the Tower Bridge.
Reykjavik, Iceland – The Blue Lagoon was amazing. A very strange feeling jumping in a thermal pool when it is freezing outside.
Nice, France – Streets lined with yellow buildings. Reminds us of the Izamal Yellow City in Mexico
Pontevedra, Spain – A castle we stumbled upon. I’m not sure if back in the day they had a beautiful lawn on the interior!
Galicia, Spain – City Hall; Spain is full of stunning buildings. Imagine going to work in a building like this.
Santiago de Compostela, Spain – The monastery of San Martín Pinario. Another stunning piece of work by the Spanish.
Nice, France – Over looking the marina.
Pontevedra, Spain – A little beach we found after driving down miles of narrow roads. Definitely no other tourists here.
Gullfoss, Iceland Waterfall – If you don’t mind the cold, well worth the visit.
Dublin, Ireland – Trinity College; A magnificent piece of architecture
Ireland – What a stunning coastline! We didn’t get nearly enough time there to fully explore.
Amsterdam, Netherlands – A horse and carriage awaits a tourist.
Monte Carlo, Monaco – The famous casino. Nicole wouldn’t let me inside to gamble our travel savings away. Talk about spoil sport!
Paris, France – Jardin du Luxembourg; What would a Europe Photo Essay be without a photo from Paris?
Lugo, Spain – A wall surrounds the entire city. It’s quite easy to imagine yourself centuries ago fighting off the invading enemy.
