Dad Meets Europe

I was blessed to have my dad come visit me for twelve days. It was the first time seeing family in over six months. As you may know, Dad is a fun and encouraging guy to be around, so, needless to say, good times were had.

This was Dad’s first time in Europe. We could’ve lounged around Bratislava for twelve straight days, but we had no interest in such an idea. I used a bunch of vacation days, we rented a small red Škoda, and hit the road to explore new places and see old friends. Our journey is highlighted via photos below. 

DAY 1 // Vienna, Austria

Schonnbrunn Palace

DAY 2 // Salzburg, Austria

View from the Hohensalzburg Castle.

DAY 3 // Munich, Germany

DAY 4 // Stuttgart, Germany

 Visited Elke, a friend that came to Brazil to work with a German missions team at my parents' tribe.

Rubble from World War 2 piled forty meters atop a hill overlooking the city.

DAY 5 // Cologne, Germany

 Bridge in Cologne, Germany, with thousands of padlocks with engraved names. Lovers lock it to the fence and throw the key into the river as a symbol of their undying love.

DAY 6 // Berlin, Germany

 Brandenburg Gate

 Holocaust Memorial

Berlin Wall

DAY 7 // Prague, Czech Republic

 One man show. Played guitar, harmonica, xylophone, keyboard, and the drums.

 My new favorite cafe.

DAYS 8-10 // Bratislava, Slovakia

 Dad giving traditional Slovak food a go. Bryndzové halušky.

View of the sunset from the radio tower (highest point in the city).

DAY 11 // Budapest, Hungary

 Parliament building.
