The Style Lynn Life Travels: Amsterdam, Netherlands

Okay, literally cracking up over here because I am remembering all the fun we had in Amsterdam. Like almost getting ran over by a bike multiple times (you better get outta their way when you see them coming!), exiting the train station to get in a taxi and after the taxi driver tells us “oh no your hotel is only 3 minutes from here, you can easily walk”…30 minutes later we finally found our hotel!! It was literally 3 minutes away, but we kept getting wrong directions from people we asked LOL or maybe it was the plethora of what Texans would called “illegal smoke” that was surrounding our air flow!

And before you ask, no I did not partake in that while we were there! 🙂 However, read on and I’ll tell you what we did do! 🙂

The Style Lynn Life Travels: Brussels, Belgium

Happy Wednesday!

I am so excited that I am finally picking back up on this travel series! I only took a one month break LOL. Okay, so I know in my last travel post here I said Scotland came in close second to Paris, but….going through these photos made me remember how much I loved Brussels! It was such a BEAUTIFUL place! It was almost like being in mini Paris except it was half the walking.

How We Got There:

From Scotland, we flew to London for a quick one day trip. We actually just stopped there because it was a Holy Day for us and that was the closest church we could get to. As soon as we landed in London, we checked into our hotel, had a late dinner and literally went to bed. The next morning (so early) we headed to Tonbridge for church. That didn’t give us much time in London this trip but we have been to London before so I promise to put together a London itinerary soon!

Anywho, so we flew from Scotland to London and then took a train to Brussels. Are you still with me? LOL

The Style Lynn Life Travels: Edinburgh, Scotland Itinerary

Okay, so Paris may have been my most favorite part of the trip, but Scotland comes in at a close second! It was SO beautiful you guys! These photos do not do it justice. You are just going to have to go see it with your own eyes 🙂

 It was even better than I imagined it would be. The greenery, the castles, the people playing bagpipes on the street, the cobblestone roads… Also, Brandon’s favorite movie of all time is Braveheart and some scenes were filmed in the Edinburgh Castle so I think this may have been his favorite stop of the trip!

The Style Lynn Life Travels: Belfast, Northern Ireland Itinerary

Happy day after election day friends!

Whether you are celebrating a victory and want to plan a vacation from all the anxiety you have been feeling the past couple of weeks or are wanting to fly across the country and stay forever this Wednesday post is for you 🙂  If you didn’t catch last week’s travel post you can still catch our Ireland Itinerary here.

In other world news, raise your hand if you knew Northern Ireland is part of the UK while Ireland has been a fully independent country since 1922? (insert emoji *not raising her hand here) When Brandon and I were going over our itinerary and he told me we were going to Ireland and then stopping in Northern Ireland I was like “why don’t you just say we are going to Ireland?” After a brief history lesson I know understand why LOL. Also, there is literally a wall, the Peace Wall, that separates the two countries.
