World Travel – Belgium 2004

We passed through Belgium rather rapidly but I kept the video camera handy and I caught Central Station in Antwerp from the highway out of the bus window.

World Travel – Netherlands 2004

We next major stop is Amsterdam, Netherlands (Holland) where we took a wonderful float trip through the city via various canals. We started just outside the Central Station, passing by the famous Anne Frank’s house, before docking at the Sea Palace for dinner. The next morning we visited a Diamond Factory that sits close to the Opera House. As in many cities we have visited I got a few shots of the churches and other unique structures. In many places in Europe I found that the oldest buildings still standing are the churches which is why they are so unique and interesting to visit. Some have famous people buried within them.

After completing our trip on the Rein River we board our bus and travel to Koln/Cologne Germany. Along the way we still spot more castles, some that are large in size. Once we reach Koln we visited the famous Cologne Cathedral and see some of the ancient artifacts that are contained there.

World Travel – Germany 2004 – Part II

Next we stopped off at Heidelburg to tour its famous castle. While touring we learned how the castle was expanded by each generation before it was ruined. It was nearly lost to time before the city found great uses for it; one being tourism…
