A Whole Lotta Places Somewhere in Europe

The Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial was extremely heart-wrenching, but I am so glad I got to see and experience it. The bunkers and crematorium as well as other buildings were still in place. It was unbelievable to physically see the remains of such an awful place.

We boarded the bus and stopped a little bit away for lunch. I think by this point I had a McDonald’s salad from 4 or 5 different countries…not too cool. The ride to Strasbourg, France was 6 hours, so we watched the Sound of Music, which I had never seen before and wasn’t as awful as I thought it would be.

We got into Strasbourg at around 8 and I went out with Marcie & Teresa. Our French dinner was pretty bad – Teresa thought she ordered us soup when actually it was onion pizza. We walked around to see the few sights there were. The city was absolutely beautiful and I would’ve liked to live there. It was pretty small but the city church, opera house, and all the architecture were gorgeous.

This is one day I ate 3 meals, in 3 different countries. Breakfast: Austria. Lunch: Germany. Dinner: France. It was kind of an exhausting day.

Waking up in Strasbourg, we immediately boarded the bus to the Council of Europe. There we were given a tour, got to see the debating chamber, and had a presentation from some important guy…he was boring, that’s all I know.

Afterward, we rode the bus to Luxembourg. We only spent about 2 hours there. It was enough time to grab lunch and explore a tiny bit, though. There wasn’t too much to do there and there was a ton of construction. It was a pretty pointless stop, but hey, now I can say I’ve been to Luxembourg...woohoo.

Yet again we boarded the bus, this time heading for Leuven, Belgium. We got to our hotel and I changed quickly before meeting up with my friend Melde, from high school. She took a group of us around a little and out to dinner. I had some awesome pasta and good Belgian beer. After dinner, we all went to a few bars before heading in for the night. It was a lot of fun and I had a great time seeing Melde again!
