October 2, 2014 Greetings from the beautiful Portugal!!! I didn’t know what I was expecting out of this country. I knew that it was the forerunner when it came to exploration when the world was flat and whatnot, but I knew nothing about the demographics of the nation. Turns out: it’s wonderful! I visited Lisbon,… Read More Discovering Portugal
September 26, 2014 Top of the morning to ya! Guess who’s in Ireland. We’re docked in Dublin and there is actually green everywhere. It’s not a stereotype! It’s cool! There is just something about seeing Ireland though… When one goes to a foreign place, he/she must view something that represents that country to officially “see”… Read More Picturesque as a Shamrock
Hello, everyone. It’s been tooooo long. I am SO behind on blogging that it’s not even funny, but I’m about to catch you up.

September 17, 2014 So, I had the most random day of my life in France today. We are currently docked in Le Havre, which is a port city and that’s about it. To be honest, there’s just not much to do here. I have plans for the next two days (tomorrow I’m going to see… Read More Bonjour!

The canals were filled with ducks and swans, which made for some great pictures. Here is one. The ducks possessed two problems through. 1 They pay no mind to the… Read More Duck!
September 16, 2014 Ahh, Belgium. Finally a land completely dedicated to chocolate and waffles! I am gaining weight just by walking along these streets! Seriously the food is salivating here. We were docked in Antwerp, which is where the current European Special Olympic Games are being held. Here is a picture of the torch! … Read More They Love Me In Belgium
September 9, 2014 This post will not have my usual whit, because today I saw a historic piece of Germany, which gave me a look into its darkened past. I started the day a Sachsenhousen Concentration Camp. Sachsenhousen began as a work camp, not an execution camp. Nevertheless, thousands of people lost their lives there… Read More Darkened
September 8, 2014 Our port in Germany is Warnemunde, a quiet, little beach town. I have plans to do more historic stuff tomorrow, so today, I figured I would stay in Warnemunde and go geocaching with some friends. If you’ve never heard of geocaching, it’s basically using a multimillion-dollar satellite system to find hidden… Read More Geocaching for Germans
September 6, 2014 Today I went to Toruŉ, a medieval town in Poland. I walked down the cobblestone streets and toured a few of the incredibly old buildings. I also viewed a massive painting depicting the difference of Heaven and the alternative that has been marveled at by royals and peasants alike for centuries now.… Read More Run, Run, Run as Fast as You Can…
