38 countries and counting …

Here we are, at the end of our European adventure … I cannot help but think about the great experiences we have had, from city breaks, adventure, beach and ski holidays, all of which I consider only to have added so much knowledge and wealth to my life.

Here I am, already contemplating our next adventure… my mind drifting in and out of the adventures we have completed since this amazing journey began 24 months ago… not to mention the holidays we have been lucky enough to experience before moving to London!

I’m not one who enjoyed studying history at school, at all, but the quote…

Travel is the most important form of education

…has certainly made an impression on myself, the things I have learned and the places I have seen has truly been an eye opener, I won’t go into it but some of the highlights included learnings about the…

  • Byzantine Empire (Roman) – Turkey
  • Greek Mythology – Delos (Greece), Olympia (Greece), Ephesus (Turkey)
  • World War 1 – Turkey, most importantly for any Australian, visiting Gallipoli
  • World War 2 – Berlin, need I say more? London with Churchill’s war rooms, Kraków in Poland …
  • the list goes on and on …

Long story short, I thought it’s about time we captured some of these memories, jot them down (or shall we say blog about them on-the-line) and share these with anyone who cared to read about them!

  1. I am so impressed with your Blog. Well done. It’s like travelling the world myself from my lounge room. Keep up the great work..

  3. Travelling and history is sometimes closely connected. Many places we want to visit or that we enjoyed visiting are known to us because of their history. Berlin, Paris, Riga or Budapest wouldn’t have been as interesting without their history. 🙂

    But you really made an impressive list of countries firing your time in Europe. 🙂

    • You’re absolutely right Jesper. It is unfortunate the history is quite devastating to listen to. It certainly brings a new meaning to travel and some of these cities!
