Around the World in Food

Which of these dishes would you try? I used to be somewhat finicky in my eating choices, but since hubby and I have started traveling abroad every year, now I’m fairly open to trying most dishes. What about you? Are you adventurous or stick to the tried-and-true?

I is for Incredible

We’re baaaack!

Hubby and I just returned from our cruise through Europe, and that’s the only way I can describe it…incredible! Plus, I needed an I word to make it work for this week’s blog. 🙂

Mind if I share a few pictures? No? Phew! That’s good because I planned to anyway. lol

As is the case with most European flights, we flew all night. After a two hour bus ride from Heathrow, we sailed from Dover, just outside London. We didn’t suffer too much jet lag this year. Last year, I was down for the count, but this time, I was more prepared. 

Our first four ports were in Norway. For some reason, I anticipated quaint little towns, but that wasn’t the case with these ports, as you can see. Still incredible scenery.


Alesund, Norway
A Bookstore in Bergen, Norway (couldn’t resist!)
Stavanger, Norway

Our first glimpse of Oslo, Norway

Check out this stunning sunset as we sailed away from Hamburg, Germany. Incredible, isn’t it?

Hamburg, Germany

Amsterdam, one of my favorite stops.

Bruges, Belgium

And what a way to end the cruise ~ touring Paris. You cannot imagine the magnificence of the Eiffel Tower until you’re standing close. Wow! 

Hubby at the Eiffel Tower

We spent an extra day touring London since we didn’t have time before the cruise. Hubby’s idea. He figured if I was going to spend an entire day sleeping away jet lag, we might as well do it on the ship and save the extra day to take in the sights when we returned. Have I mentioned how smart he is? 🙂

Tower Bridge (And I always thought this was the London Bridge!!)

Incredible. The only thing that would have made this cruise any better was if my parents had been able to join us. Next time!

Where did you take your last “incredible” trip?
