There and Back Again
|||||Matchbox 20 - Unwelll||]|
Hello and welcome to There and Back Again Lane, merrymeerkat's journal for travel and photographs.
The tour kicks off on Friday, June 2nd, when I depart Toronto's Pearson International Airport (YYZ) for London Stansted (STN). From there I will meet up with hallie2985, who will be my lovely host and tour guide as well as official British to Canadian translator. After a day in London, we're off to Stonehenge and Bath, followed by Cambridge.
On the 7th, I fly STN - DUS, where I will meet up with my slothful boyfriend and train it to Empel to meet my great uncle and other various and sundry relatives. We will then spend a few days in Holland before departing the 11th for Graz via Vienna.
Graz is the home of a few friends of mine that I made while I was there attending the Graz International Bilingual School, so the 12th is the day of a bit of a class reunion, then a typical Styrian meal is scheduled for the 13th. Hopefully there will also be some time while we are there to visit my old neighbours.
On the 14th we depart again for Vienna, where I will meet up with another ex-classmate for ice cream or similar. There should also be enough time to check out a tourist trap or two- perhaps the butterfly house, the parliament buildings, or Schoenbrunn palace.
Then, off to Paris on the 16th for some real authentic European smog, baguettes, and overpriced museums. If all goes as planned I'll be back at home in Ontario sometime in the morning of June 20th.
