Erin’s European Vacation

Erin in Lake Orta, Italy

I made it!  I made it there and back!  Will wonders never cease?

Most of you know I was on a 10-day visit to Europe last week with Queens University (where we had a few days of  company site visits, like to Siemens, VF Corporation [who own Timberland/Vans/Reef/The North Face/etc.], and various Italian companies), and just got back on Saturday.  I have pictures!  I have never been to Europe before, and it was pretty fantastic.  I’d go back in a heartbeat.  There were almost 20 of us on the trip, although only 8 of us took it for credit.

Here’s where I went: Munich (100 photos) for 3 days, Lugano, Switzerland (40 photos) for 2 days, then Milan (200 photos) for 4 days (which included day trips to Como/Bellagio, and Lake Orta.

Here are a few photos of company Site visits with our class (10 photos)

I think most of the photos are captioned and turned the right way…I’m sure others took better photos than I (including my roommate), but these will do for now!

I loved every country—they each had their own charm.  I’m sorry I couldn’t have stayed there longer!  The food, fashion, culture, beer/wine, scenery, people—all were just a treat to take in.  The weather was kinda cold and misty in Munich, but beautiful in Lugano (where they speak Italian!) and Milan.  And the Milano people are so put together and well dressed…ciao bello!  I purchased many a scarf to embrace the style of my European brethren…as you can see!

Not sure where I’ll go next…maybe Paris, or Spain…or back to Italy!  But I definitely want to start planning!

Auf wiedersehen!  Ciao!
