Europe Part I: Amsterdam & Germany

For two weeks in May we travelled around Europe - Amsterdam, Germany, Switzerland & Paris (!!). The purpose of the trip was to visit Marcus' family, who live in a small town called Bernau in Germany. Since this was going to be my first visit to Europe I insisted that we go to Paris (my dream for forever). Not only did I get to experience Paris they way I have always dreamed, Marcus & I also got ENGAGED (pictures in next post) under the eiffel tower. It was an amazing trip, but the engagement had to be the highlight...a fairytale I'd say! I am one very lucky girl!

canal in Amsterdam

flower market - $15 for 50 tulips?! I wish I could have brought armfuls home!

The coffee in europe is beyond amazing. We sipped lattes at a department store in central Amsterdam. 

The original Heineken factory - not in use now, just for tourists!

We got to sample some of the freshest Heineken!

Marcus' cousin picked us up in Germany at the airport, and then we took a short day trip to Basel, Switzerland. We climbed this incredibly high church tower (with incredibly narrow stairs, and no railing - just a rope!). 

In Freibrug, Germany we had some yummy pretzels & beer for lunch.

We drove to a view point that looked over the whole city of Freiburg - pretty great views!

...Paris pictures to come!
