Well it only took 6 months for me to get around to posting these images, no real excuse expect for being lazy not to mention having to sift through 1000s of images.
It’s amazing how much you can see into a such short amount of time, 16 days from Sydney to London, Bristol, Brighton, Paris & Berlin.
We flew out of Sydney, Australia into Heathrow Airport spent New Years in London and caught up with some friends living abroad. From there we caught the EuroRail out to Bristol & Brighton. I would recommend it to anyone whenever in London to take the train out to Brighton, we enjoyed home-made cupcakes and tea in the markets and some much-needed vegan and gluten-free organic food from Iydea, I don’t usually eat much vegan food, but WOW! It was to die for!
Bristol was the next stop for us to check out some of its world-renowned street art, a lot was found in Nelson Street at the See No Evil Gallery which is an international street art festival in the summer, but a lot of the work is left on display for everyone to enjoy.
After a day of resting up after New Years we headed to Paris on the EuroRail. What can I say about Paris? The shopping, amazing architecture a life time of history and artwork, you could spent a life time talking it all in. We had to chance to see the Notre Dame Cathedral on its 850th year anniversary.
Our last stop was Berlin, despite the fact we got on the train at the wrong end and had to carry all our luggage through 12 fully cramped carriages to find our seats, it was a great and inexpensive way to travel, no need to check in hours before have being stuck in Airport lobbies.
No friends or family had been to Berlin so we didn’t know what to expect, sometimes that’s the best way to travel and this certainly was the case with Berlin. We were blown away by how lovely the people were, the food, shopping and culture. I think I had the best steak of my life in a little restaurant on the Spree River Berlin. We stayed a cool hotel in Mitte called the Art’otel and they offered a great range of gluten-free foods for breakfast.
Now it was time for the dreaded 38 hour trip back home. From Berlin to Heathrow to Singapore then lastly Sydney after 16 days traveling around Europe it wasn’t surprising that we slept quite a bit of the way home. Im looking forward to visiting that part of the world again, hopefully we will be back there one day.
Thanks for stopping by!
Much Love LB
