Last year I traveled to Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg. The political-economic union of the three countries is referred to as Benelux. I also made a quick day trip into Germany to see Germany's oldest city. This is the theme for my blog during the month of April and the A to Z Challenge.
This trip was in the planning for many years. I originally wanted to travel to Amsterdam in 2004, but the Rijksmuseum was being renovated, a renovation that started in 2003 and continued to 2013. In the meantime, I saw the movie 'In Bruges' in 2009 and my desire to see the region was even more intense. But wait, they were still renovating the museum. So, other places were visited and I have blogged about those trips - Canada, Austria, Germany, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Russia, Finland, Estonia... did I forget anyplace?
Anyway, the museum was reopened and the time was right. Off I went. It was a wonderful two-week adventure. And I could have used more time, but admit that I was ready to come home. I will share all the wonderful sites with you - well, all the A to Z sites.

I will try to link on the A to Z Challenge website each day, but since my posts are pre-scheduled, that may not always happen. Whatever you decide, I hope you will travel with me in April.
Have you visited any of these countries. What was the highlight of your trip?
