Europe Pt 1.

By: Croyd93 @ 18:39 (EDT) / 495 / Comment ( 3 )

Not sure how many people will read this will get as it's not poker related, but as I mentioned in a previous blog I was going on holiday. I have recently arrived back from a month’s travel around Europe. Although not a super long travel I have none the less decided to write about my trip for anyone interested. I managed to do quite a lot in a month and am thus going to split it into two parts.

My trip started in Paris It's a pretty cool city. A lot of the cities I visited have absolutely tonnes to do and Paris is no exception. As I'm British we did the typical British/Tourist thing and visited the Eiffel tower which 'towers' over our Blackpool tower by quite some way. It is literally huge you can go up 3 levels to around 280m; it may not be the highest building in the world but the views over Paris is incredible.

We stayed a few days and saw other stuff like L'arc de Trioumphe, and Notre Dam cathedral. They're both pretty cool however if you ever go to Paris and can only do one thing then I thoroughly recommend going up the Eiffel tower It's great fun! (We also tried the famous French dishes Frogs leg and Snails, however this is wouldn't be something I recommend.)

Next stop was Brussels we were only there one night and I was recommended in a thread I started in the forum to try the Belgium beer. It was true to form so thank you very much Roland GTX, although I also have you to thank for a cracking hangover the next day. :wink:

We then stopped in Amsterdam for a few days, many people know Amsterdam for its liberal reputation and party scene again this stayed true to form both there herbal product, beer and party life is great. There's is also many funny sex shops which are worth a visit just for a look around and a laugh.
However Amsterdam also has a historical side to it and if you get chance I would visit the Anne Frank House it really is eye-opening and although slightly depressing completely worth the visit. Along with these two different sides of the city; Amsterdam is very nice to look at, it has so many canals and lots of cool architecture.

After a tedious 6 hour train we arrived in Berlin, which is a striking city. It has such a great history alongside lots of modern built up areas as which is great to look at. You really can't ever be bored in Berlin. If you have any interest in the world wars then this is a great place to go, however there is much more to it than just the wars than. While in Berlin I visited The Reichstag, The Battenberg Gate, The Berlin wall (remains), and the Holocaust memorial. I really can't pick one that was the best and there is still so much more that I didn't get to see. Berlin is a very nice place and if you get chance definitely go, I know I’m going back :-D

Tried to add some photos but it wouldn't work, hopefully I can get it sorted for next time.

Thanks for reading

Croyd. :)
