Previous Post: Germany
Not going to be exactly chronological for these last few posts, as we’re zig-zagging around a bit and we’re taking less photos too, as we spent time in Vienna and Innsbruck as well but I couldn’t find any blog-worthy photos. Instead I’ll focus on Salzburg.
Previous Post: Belgium
Lots of photos in this one but I’ll just touch on a few highlights.
Previous Post: Amsterdam
Belgium was definitely one of our favourite places so far. We passed through Antwerp, spent a day in Brugge (if you are Dutch, or Bruges if you are French) and one in Ieper (Ypres), overnighted in Brussels and spent the rest of the time in Gent.

Amsterdam was interesting in that it wasn’t a place that I was particularly fussed about going to in the first place, and we hit it after about a month of driving through England, Scotland and Ireland. While we really enjoy the driving parts it was quite tiring over such a period of time, particularly as we tended to stay in each place for less nights and moved about more. This was also just after our car disaster and all the associated hassle, and we knew we were about to hit a few solid weeks of beer and food through Belgium and Germany. So Amsterdam became a bit of a rest and recharge and we didn’t hit too many tourist scenes.
So for a change here are some photos not of tourist attractions, but that we felt captured some of Amsterdam’s essence… boats, bikes, blue and orange.
Previous Post: Scotland
Apparently blue and green should never be seen without a colour in between, but I quite liked the blue and green of the Aer Lingus air hostess outfits. Made me think of rolling green hills and the deep blue sea. Pretty appropriate for Ireland.
England – part 2
Scotland was really enjoyable and somewhere we’d consider visiting again. I couldn’t think of a better song than Scotland the Brave to represent what we saw of the country. The scenery, the highlands in particular, was spectacular.
