Hello All! I’m back!
Last you heard from me I ran the Berlin Marathon at the end of September. It’s now November. I took October off from the blog, and for good reason, as I was resting, recovering, and then partying along the east coast of the USA.
After Berlin my father, who came to watch me run, stayed with us in France for a couple weeks. So a few trips were made around Europe until we all flew back to the US the second week of October.
In this period of time (5 weeks), I’ve visited 11 specific cities/towns, 10 states, 5 countries, and 1 district. Amazing! I can’t imagine covering all of it with you, nor do I want to bore you, but I’ll do my best to make a brief recap for ya.
This week will be Part 1: pre-USA.
Quaint town on the eastern side of France, close to Strasbourg. Known for alsascien architecture, cuisine, and the seasonal Christmas Markets.
I’ve visited Nancy, which is 45 Minutes south of Metz, before on my own (click here to read about it). However, I liked it enough to bring my dad down to see it for a day.
Known for it’s WWI battle, the small village holds several memorials for the French Military.
A small country that boasts beautiful countryside and plenty of historical value throughout.
A place I’ve been to several times, but my dad has not. We decided to cross the channel for a weekend.
I’ll continue Part 2: USA next week where we trekked along the east coast for 3 weeks!
