Tam Coc Ninh Binh, Vietnam. 2008
I traveled domestically a lot in the Spring of 2017. I had tremendous experiences in New Orleans, Athens (GA), Boston, and Baltimore. I'd never been to New Orleans, nor Boston. After seeing both of those for the first time, 2017 was already a year of fresh destinations for me.
But shouldn't I do something on the other side of the Atlantic?
I didn't realize I hadn't planned any international travel for myself until sometime in June. When it hit me, I knew I had to get on the ball.
In 2016, I had an awesome trip across southern Norway. Starting in Oslo to hit the Viking Ship Museum, the Folk Museum, and the Fram Museum. We stayed in the Gabelsgate area in Oslo, near the embassies, in a wonderful little hotel, the Clarion Collection Hotel Gabelshus. We went on to Kristiansand to see Movik Fort, then all the way up to Trondheim [after an 11hr drive] to see Nidaros Cathedral. From there, we flew to Bergen and stayed in the Brygge at the Radisson Blu, right on the water. The Grand Finale of last year's trip was my sister's wedding in the archipelago east of Stockholm; that was awesome.
The whole trip was awesome.
But what can I do this year?
Let's do a river cruise through Germany.
