Most interesting European capital cities to visit

So it’s the 3rd honeymoon down – celebrated in Europe this time. My Hubby, Satish is getting closer to his life goal “to have visited 40 countries before the good lord beckons” and since we’re together “for better”I’m simply enjoying the ride.it does not get any better than thisalthough if it did I wouldn’t be complaining. I’m glad Satish shares my opinion that the best way to enjoy life is to live it to the fullest and every new experience adds that much more value and wealth to your memory bank. Besides, we’re young once and God has been good to us. The adage “Youth is wasted on the youth” is thought provoking and I wouldn’t want for us to look back when we’re in our rocking chairs and have any regrets. So while we’re both not by any means spendthrifts by nature we figured this was the best phase in our lives to take time off to explore foreign lands nothing to tie us down at the moment.

After much deliberation, we decided to take a planned 14 day tour of Europe a grand extravaganza quite extravagant indeed! We were debating whether to do just one country properly like Italy perhaps or do the whole hog with all it’s pro’s and cons we were hoping that the cons would not out weigh the pro’s In fact it was the other way around. We got our hard earned, money’s worth. We opted for SOTC s tour because it covered most of the places we wanted to see and it was the most cost effective included more for less! Now which self respecting Indian born, Indian raised with an Indian, highly taxed salary, wouldn’t fall for that huh? It was time well spent getting a flavor of those far away places with the strange sounding names The route was London, Brussels, Antwerp on to the Rhine falls at Schaffausen proceeding on to Heidelberg, Cologne and then to Lucerne, Interlaken, Jungfraujock at the top of Europe, Geneva, Venice, Rome, Florence, Pisa and ended with Paris. Thus we covered 6 countries – England, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and France.

We arrived at Heathrow airport on the 22nd morning it was a Friday and my dads brother, “Uncle Rudy” was terrific. He picked us up from the airport it was so nice to see a familiar face the 1st thing you arrive on foreign soil you feel safe and secure and it takes away the stress of having to find your way around after the tiring flight along with heavy luggage. We’ll never learn to travel light I had to work hard at convincing Satish that he wasn’t going to find time to read those big hard cover books he
