The past week and a half has been absolutely incredible! I never thought I’d have the chance to spend a week in Europe, and it has been so incredible, even though we’re only 1/4 of the way done!
As I mentioned in this post, it was wayyyy cheaper to fly out of Chicago rather than Detroit, so we added even more adventure onto our already full plate. You can see a few other posts about our time in Chicago here, here, and here!
Sunrise as we were descending towards Reykjavik! I’d never seen such vibrant colors!
Once we left Chicago, we flew into Reykjavik, Iceland and spent a day there, and from there we went to Warsaw, Poland. Unfortunately, we didn’t have much time in Poland, but we will have a much longer layover on our way back. From Poland we flew into Frankfurt and spent a few days south of town in Baden-Baden, a town famous for its hot springs! From Baden-Baden, we ventured deeper into the Black Forest Region of Germany. From there we traveled to Colmar, France and a bit further south! We still have a few more countries to visit, and I am so excited to share our trip with all of you.
Trinkehalle [Drink Hall] in Baden-Baden, Germany! Literally a great hall with huge barrels of alcohol, hot food, and a dance floor! Oddly enough, this place was only open from 11am-4pm local time, so it was never very busy [that we saw at least].

Beautiful building in Warsaw, Poland!

Check back here often for more links to our adventures! As I post more, and go through all of our photos, I will add hyperlinks to the timeline above. I have literally thousands of photos already, and not a lot of time to edit or post, but I will get to work in between our excursions!
I can’t wait for you to see the things we’ve seen, it’s unbelievable!
Until next time!

Whenever I hear about Reykjavik, I think of Journey to the Center of the Earth.
