1.) Ireland: enough said!
My favorite part of Ireland was the Wicklow Mountains. Ireland in general is utterly stunning and I’m SO excited to someday go back.
2.) Dutch food
Stroop waffles, free cheese samples and the VIP Heineken tour make Amsterdam a great place for eating and drinking delicious delicacies. Did I mention free cheese?
During the Heineken tasting not only did I receive a beer bottle with my name on it, I was aslo able to sample a beer that’s not even on the market yet!
3.) An old fashioned car ride around Prague
My favorite part about Prague was being driven around in style! Prague is at the top of the list of my favorite cities in all of Europe. The food was great, the architecture is lovely and the history and culture are fascinating.
4.) Carpathian Mountains: Transylvania, Romania
I have seen a great number of mountains in my somewhat brief lifetime. However, the Carpathian Mountains are something out of a fairy tale. The view was literally magical.
5.) Greek Islands: cruising around on the back of an ATV
Santorini and Mykonos would not have been nearly as good of a time if there had not been an ATV involved. The four-wheeled death trap allowed me to see the majority of Santorini and a good deal of Mykonos.
Best part: I even drove it! … For all of two seconds (during which I nearly drove off the road), but still!
Delos is a small island just west of Mykonos. Historically, it played a significant role in the formation of religion and trade in Ancient Greece. I’d also learned a great deal about the island in my History of Ancient Greece class, therefore, I was triply excited to hike around and see the ruins of the mythological birthplace of Apollo and Artemis.
This was a very brief recap of my Spring Break.
