Gunters Abroad Weekly Update | Dad's Trip

We sent Dad off at Heathrow yesterday and we were sad to see him leave! We had such a fun time and made fantastic memories but I know he was ready to be back in convenient USA :) It's funny to watch a newbie in the UK or in Europe for that matter. The way things are done here seems so different at first. Anyway, here is a little photo recap from our 10 days with Dad! More details of our travels will be coming next week.....I'm telling you, it's been a busy month here at the Gunter household!

Ely Cathedral Tower Tour
Dad's first fish and chips with mushy peas
Tapas in Cambridge
Ghost Tour in Cambridge
The Eagle Pub in Cambridge 
Dad experiencing Van's driving in England 
The boys in our canal house in Amsterdam (we nicknamed Dad "AmsterDanny")
Dad's new friends at Cafe Bern in Amsterdam...he does not meet a stranger!!
Our kitty friend at a cafe in Amsterdam...funny enough, he doesn't understand "kitty"....he's Dutch!!
Canal boat tour in Amsterdam
Night out in Amsterdam

We had such an amazing time and I think we did an okay job showing our first visitor around. We didn't do too many "touristy" things and I think Dad was ok with that! He is easy to please :) Posts are on the way next week! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

    1. Haha! I should have explained! My Dad's name is Danny and I'm telling you, he doesn't meet a stranger and the Dutch loved him....so we just called him Amsterdanny lol!

    1. It was a little intimidating because I just wanted to take him everywhere, but luckily he is really laid back and enjoyed everything we did!

  6. He looks like he had a blast with y'all! My favorite picture is the first one--the colors are so pretty and the fact that he's so far up is unexpected. Just found your blog, and I can't wait to read more!

  7. Aw, it looks like you guys had a lovely time!
    I remember last year a load of new Americans came over to Germany for work and their reactions to things were so funny, you're right when you say the convenience of the USA, that was the biggest complaint they had. For me, I find Germany a little more inconvenient than England but it's nothing compared to the USA!

    1. So funny right?? I think anywhere we move to that is different from our home country, we will probably find it inconvenient!!
