It feels like just yesterday that I boarded my Norwegian flight bound for Berlin, Germany, but I’ve returned from my latest jaunt through Europe! That’s the way it always goes, it seems.
What an incredible, incredible trip. My list of destinations this go-round included Berlin, Germany, Prague, Czech Republic, Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic–a UNESCO World Heritage Site about two hours outside of Prague–and Krakow, Poland.
As a history nut–particularly surrounding World War II–this was a trip that I’ve wanted to take for quite some time. It was surreal wandering the streets of Berlin, knowing the historical significance of the city. Exploring the ruins of the Kaiser-Wilhelm Memorial Church, the Berlin Wall, and the various monuments that dot the city was somewhat of a dream realized for someone who had spent his life reading about these places and events in books. It was remarkable.
Poland also presented the opportunity to visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Words can’t properly describe the horror of such a place–it’s something that just needs to be experienced first-hand to truly comprehend the depths to which humanity can sink. I will never return to such an evil place, but I’m so glad I was able to visit and pay respects to the millions who lost their lives during the Holocaust.
Through the beautiful, exhausting, awe-inspiring and horrifying: it was another trip of a lifetime.
Thank you to all of my clients for your flexibility while I was away–I trust the transition and adjustment was minimal. I know Russell appreciates the opportunity to dust off his agent shoes, so I know all of you were in great hands. While traveling Europe was wonderful, I’m glad to be getting back into the swing of things and resuming work on your campaigns!
