Europe Archives - Ramblings and Photos
Sisk Family European Vacation: Harrods of London...

October 26, 2011
SourceLast week, I shared the last of my photos in Paris from our “family vacation” in Europe. Rather than fly straight back to the United States, we took the high speed train back to London. By this point in our trip, we were a bit tired…so much left to see, but our energy level just wasn’t there. Nonetheless, we decided to check out Harrods…I mean, our taxi driver said we just HAD to have a doggie bag.  Harrods is one of the most popular department stores/shopping centers in London…maybe the world. It is located on Brompton Road in...

Sisk Family European Vacation: Paris, Day 3 – Arc de Triomphe...

October 19, 2011
Believe it or not, my vacation photos are slowly but surely coming to an end. The Arc de Triomphe was our last stop in Paris. Leaving the Eiffel Tower, we had just a few hours before our train back to London…so, we jumped the metro and went up to street level for long enough to take a few photos and see a street performer in passing. That’s all I’ll say…because 1) that’s all I have to say about that – you can certainly click HERE for more information on the Arc de Triomphe, and 2) I got very little sleep last night. I may have a couple more photos from...

Sisk Family European Vacation: Paris, Day 3 – The Eiffel Tower...

October 14, 2011
If you’ve been following my vacation posts the past few weeks, you’ve gotten a sense for how much we tried to do while we were in London and Paris. If I had it to do all over (and I had the time to do it), I would spend a week in each location so I could fully appreciate each city. Not only were my feet incredibly tired from all the walking, but we really didn’t have a chance to see places like the Eiffel Tower at night (I guess we could have the night before, but we were exhausted). Anyways, as you might imagine…the Eiffel Tower had a pretty long line. It appeared as...

Sisk Family European Vacation: Paris, Day 3 – The Catacombs...

October 12, 2011
Our third and final day in Paris was a busy one…and we started it by visiting the Catacombs. It opens at 10:30 am and can only hold 200 people at any given time. We arrived at approximately 10:45 am to an incredible line. The Catacombs gather the remainders of approximately six million Parisians who were transferred to this final resting place between the end from 18th century and the middle from the 19th century. As I understand it, Paris’s population rapidly increased between the 10th and 12th centuries. Some of the cemeteries became overcrowded and because of their location...
