We are back home after a wonderful vacation in Europe!  I am so thankful for the wonderful opportunity to travel to Europe for seven weeks!

My Highlights:
what a pleasure it is to drive in Germany!
How close the various countries are to each other in Europe and yet so very different!
Listened to a lot of Micheal Jackson and Lady Gaga on radio.  Not necessarily Lady Gaga's  fan but I seem to know a lot of her songs now.
The Alps: my dream come true!
London is an amazing city!  Did I mention Paris yet! wow!  even though we got pick pocketed there we had a lovely time!
Switzerland is just far too beautiful for me to describe!
My Teva Shoes! Couldn't have done it without them!  I will be extra loyal to that company!
Definitely want to go back to Switzerland and The Netherlands!
All the amazing museums!  too many to count!
Loved the idea of being in an another country in about 4 to 5 hr drive! how amazing it that?
Loved the canal rides in Belgium
Finally (Honestly I could go on and on about my trip) I want to thank all the lovely people we were fortunate to meet: Mr. Fisher, Angelika, Seskin, Martin, Sabene, Ira's family, Pat, Angel, Sally, Maria, Luca, Yup,Manik, Karl and Phillip to mention a few.  Thank you all for being so gracious!

My Summer Europe Trip was a great trip. It was filled with memorable
moments, exciting people, and summer fun! That's why it was hard to pick
10  highlights. But I have carefully come up with a list so perfect
that even you will want to join me on my next trip to Europe. And trust
me you should!
 I met so many wonderful people making this trip extra
special including Martin, Sabene, Mr. Fischer, and Mrs. Fea.

 Martin and
are great people! They live in Switzerland and travel to India
for 4 months every year. We know them because my aunt who lives in India
is friends with them. Right when we arrived at their house for a visit
the first thing they did was give us a warm hug.

Mr. Fischer runs the
hotel that we stayed in during our stay in Germany. He is very funny and
nice. Whenever I see him Mr. Fischer tells me that I look beautiful. I
can't wait to see him again soon!

Mrs. Fea is my friend Ellen's
grandmother. After staying with her for a week it felt like she was my
3rd grandmother! She is so loving and fun!

Other then fun people that I
met there were also some "One of a Kind Moments"

While at Martin and
Sabene's house we got to see Martin's beehives up in the country. I had
never seen somebody with bee hives Martin even gave me a pot of honey to

While we were in Bern with Martin and Sabene we saw people
jumping a bridge into a lake with a strong current. They jumped in feet
first immediately coming up to the top of the water many holding things
to keep them afloat. It was very cool.

 Another fun thing we saw was
London from the London Eye. The London Eye is so massive and looking at
London from its perspective was amazing. Another colossally cool thing
that we saw was

The Eiffel Tower. It was so big and you could see it
peeping over the busy city of Paris from miles away. Not to mention the
view from the Eiffel Tower was great.

In Walldorf we climbed on the top
of Mr. Fischer's roof. It was so amazing. As you can see I like to go up
very high and see a city. I also liked going to a number of museums
such as the Tate Modern Art Gallery. There are some very unique art
pieces there.

 I hope you enjoyed my article.
