Germany Trip 2014

I've been back from Europe for about a week now and getting settled back into the routine of life. My internet was limited in Germany so I was not able to post the photo blog-posts until now! Enjoy the pictures! 
While in Dortmund, we visited Kaya's family friend Biggi. She is an artist and is so sweet. Look at the lovely table she laid! We had tea and coffee in the garden. Isn't it so pretty! 

A few days later we traveled north towards the Baltic sea and stayed in the little village of Heiligenhafen... "Willkommen" says the Findus cottage! 




The "Hanger" bridge to Fehmarn!  

This is a fun antique store! Lots of China in here! My version of a "toy store"! 

Lübeck ~ one of my favorite Germany cities.


Lübeck: A real-life statue! Watch out he may move on you! 




Lübeck might be my favorite because of the Niederegger Marzipan Cake Cafe! 
Just a few of the yummy cakes to choose from! Be watching for my blog post on German Cakes! 


 On another day we took a trip to the beach and visited the Weißenhaus (The White House). Doesn't it look Jane Austen like!?  

The Baltic Sea! 


I fell in love with Crepes while visiting France... and ate one any chance I got! I found one here at a German festival! Nutella!! Yumm! 


A countryside view of the Baltic Sea. 


Good-bye Germany... Till next time! 




Last Day in Paris

For our last day in Paris, we decided to go into the city early and eat a typical French Breakfast called Petite Déjeuner which consists of croissants, bread and jam, orange juice, and coffee. Here are some pictures of the street of Paris during the morning hours, our breakfast, and one last visit to Notre Dame. Enjoy! 




Petite Déjeuner ~ Oh so good! 







 Notre Dame ~ when we visited a few days ago we it was late and already closed for the day so we didn't get to go inside. Today we took this opportunity to take a peak. It was spectacular.  



I was told during this time, people liked to build the churches very big to remind people that God is great and they are small. The gargoyles on the outside were to make people afraid and turn to God. 


The stain glass was very colorful and beautiful, my pictures do not do it justice! 




Au Revoir Paris! I shall see you again! It was truly a magical experience and now I quite agree with Audrey Hepburn saying of, "Paris is Always a Good Idea." 

Paris Day 2

Day 2 in Paris! Saw a bunch of major sites! It was all very exciting and now I'm relaxing in our hotel room and putting my feet up! Lots of walking! Enjoy the photos! 
Arc de Triomphe

I'm in love with these cream colored houses and their red flowers! They look so much fun to paint! This is only one of the many (and I do mean many) photos I took of these types of houses! 



 First glimpse of the Eiffel Tower



Hard to believe it was real! After only seeing it in photos all my life and to be standing in front of it was pretty amazing!

I once photoshopped the Eiffel Tower into one of the backs of my photos, but today, I didn't have to! 

Champs-Élysées



Another view of Champs-Élysées


Tuileries Garden


Love Lock Bridge




My first real French Crepe! 


Chocolate filled crepe! Amazing!

It was so amazing, I had to have another one! So I bought another one down the street!

These two look like they are having a romantic dinner. 

Night life in Paris!
