Trip through Germany, Austria, and Greece

A few weeks ago, my son and I took a trip through Amsterdam, Munich, Vienna, and Greece. It was a trip that was much needed, since the last vacation had been five years ago. Too many demands on our lives had precluded us from traveling abroad.

Amsterdam was cold and mostly gray. During our last day there, in May we had a little bit of sunshine and took photos. Lots of bicyclists, canals, and little bridges crossing the canals.

In Munich, we met our tour group (Trafalgar) and started our tour from there.
We visited the old downtown area and walked around. Lots of shops, and lots of smokers! As a result, the air was often filled with smoke. We had to pay coins to use a toilet. We visited the Marienpleins, and St. Michael's church, where they were having a beautiful ceremony with music. 

Pictures of our trip through Bavaria to Austria included castles, like Neuschwanstein Castle by Ludwig II, views of the Alps, and a visit to a Baroque church:
