Our First Morning In Europe - Coffee in London England

For the last hour or so I've been browsing through our website, noting the errors, but being the lazy being that I am, ignoring most of them. I fix the serious ones when I spot them. Speaking of spotting images... some of these photos bring back really fine memories... So I though I would share a few highlights of our first day in Europe for our cruise aboard HAL's Oosterdman. It was a Baltic cruise visiting places like Russia, Estonia, Copenhagen, Berlin, etc.

The first morning in Europe - London England to be more specific

We got up and decided to take a walk and find some coffee. We started off down the street and found a nearby cafe where we had coffee sitting outside at a table. The coffee was great, in fact Kathy liked it so much she now buys it here at home in Portland Oregon. The brand is Illy. As we sat there a garbage truck rolled up across the street. It struck me that life didn't appear all that much different than back home.

 Ornate sculptures on the buildins in london

The buildings were certainly more ornate. Sculptures and stuff all over the place. And of course, the buildings were for the most part very old. This Baltic cruise was starting out quite well. We spent a couple of days in London before we sailed and saw all the traditional "must sees" like the changing of the guard, the tower of London, and Harrods department store. LOL

And that was just the beginning of an Amazing once-in-a-lifetime cruise ship vacation.  Did you know that there is a McDonald's restaurant on Red Square in Moscow!
