Travel

Being stationed in Europe means so many opportunities to travel.
Germany’s most popular tourist route, the Romantische Straße, stretches nearly 350 kilometers from Würzburg to Füssen. While it follows an old medieval trade route, the Romantic Road, as it is known in English, is relatively young.
Living in Germany allows seeing the German automotive engineering genius upfront and in person. It’s not surprising to see a Mercedes, BMW, Audi or Porsche fly past you on the autobahn.
Bastogne is a picturesque European town perched on the edge of the Ardennes Forest of Belgium.
Synonymous with the glamour of Paris and rolling vineyards through Epernay and Alsace, there is no shortage of fantastic sights to see in France. For nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, a stop at one of the French National Parks should definitely be on your list.
Visiting any major metropolis usually means checking out famous sites—the Colosseum in Rome, Buckingham Palace in London, the Eiffel Tower in Paris. In Athens, places such as the Parthenon, Acropolis and the Theater of Dionysus are likely to get crossed off your bucket list.
As soon as the snow falls, many of us can’t wait to grab our sleds, don winter boots, stocking hats and mittens and find the nearest hill to tear down.

Around the time of the summer solstice, residents of northern Europe are blessed with seemingly endless hours of daylight. But all that glorious light comes with a cost.
In the Bavarian Alps, along the Austrian border, sits the German area of Berchtesgaden. Enjoy quaint villages, Lake Königssee, hiking, skiing, and so much more in Berchtesgaden.
Breathtaking and otherworldly, that is how it feels to step out of the stone tunnel and into the historical town of Monemvasia, Greece. This car-free town is located on the Peloponnese, about a four-hour drive from Athens and was built carved into the rock facing the sea.
Get away from the hustle and bustle of your local area and head to the picturesque southwest region of England. Spanning the River Avon, the historical wonders of Bath and harbor city of Bristol are waiting to be discovered.
Bath
Precariously perched castles, improbably steep vineyards and slumbering half-timbered towns: the scenery along Germany’s rivers is a mesmerizing mélange of wonders.
After travelling across Europe for several years and jet-setting to country after country, I can honestly say that at any given moment I would be up for yet another trip to Garmisch-Partenkirchen in southern Germany. Without a doubt, Garmisch has stolen my heart.
