Having been back in the US for a couple months now, folks keep asking what our favorite place was, and on all sorts of levels, we can't begin to say just one place. Living in Munich, it will always be one of our favorites, but we had loads of rare experiences that make us smile thinking back on them, so rather than pick one, this is my attempt at a top 10 list.
If you're quite particular, you'll notice more than 10 links below, but these are my top 10 posts. Not top 10 places to visit or top 10 experiences, but top 10 posts. And yes, I took some creative license with how I got to these ten. Also, in looking back, I keep finding more typo's (usually autocorrect errors) on my old posts, so thanks for your understanding that I didn't always catch every little error, because seeing them is sure bugging me!
Top Ten Posts from this blog, as decided by me, who created all of them (in no particular order):
- Neuschwanstein, aka the Disney Castle, in the Snow
- Oktoberfest by day and by night. Technically, two posts.
- Norway: Knut's 80th, celebrated Sámi-style
- Florence Seriously Knows how to do Easter
- Nice dinner in Naples, in which, Greg Turns Down the Mafia
- Brundo, the Lost Dog, and Lake Bled, Slovenia
- Foodie Tour in Italy, aka Parmagiano Reggiano Cheese Heaven
- Munich's English Garden - On a Run
- Seville, Spain - All I Had Hoped It Would Be
- Another cheat where I count two posts as one: two very different changing of the guard stories:
Honorable Mention Posts are included here:
I couldn't pick just one post from London, so if you want to see those, click on London in the tag listing on the bottom, left side of the screen. Same for if you want to see posts from the cruise of the Greek isles, click the word cruise. Be warned, clicking and reading those may make you want to go visit for yourself.
What's Next For Us?
As for what is next for us, we are moving to Chicago next week so that Greg will have a shorter flight commute for work to his clients, who are almost all that side of the Mississippi River. Hopefully, in no time at all, I will be able to find a meaningful job that I enjoy.
As we joked while in Europe this past year, that job may need to be something phenomenal, such as curing cancer or solving world hunger in order to restore karmic balance for how blessed and privileged we have been to have the opportunity to live and travel having adventures and misadventures in Europe this past year.
