We Fly Home, But It’s Not Over


First selfie of the trip—Schipol Airport, Amsterdam


We set out—plane from Amsterdam to Krakow

We fly home, but it’s not all over

(Sorry for a long delay in posting here, but I have been ill and rather limited in what I could do. But seem to be on the mend now).

And so we came to the end of our special Eastern European trip. I’ve written about the main meals we ate, many of the excursions that we took and attractions that we saw in each place. We took so many photos and had so many more experiences that I’ve decided that, slowly over the next few months, I will attempt a round-up of certain things and a summary of others. So, don’t go away yet!

Nath leaving St Louis to start the trip

Since we came back Nath had her baby, a beautiful little girl, and said that she (the baby) made it so worth it that Nath was not able to sample any of the great wines along the way on our trip! I think the rest of us probably made up for that!

Besides experiencing so much and learning so much, one of the best things about this trip was that the four of us traveled together all those miles, through all those countries and towns, for so many weeks, but we all turned out to be great travel companions. There were no problems, no altercations, no arguments, and we enjoyed each other’s company the whole time. That is a real joy and a bonus, to find ideal travel companions, as it’s not easy and not common.

Our rooms in Split, just outside the Old Town/Palace

We’ve done small weekend trips together, with the baby now, and we look forward to another big trip with 5 of us!

In this post, I’ve included a small summary of some of our modes of transport photos and a couple of our accommodation. All very varied and all fun!
