How to Plan a Trip to the Netherlands on a Budget!

We traveled to the Netherlands (aka Holland to many Americans), in April 2015, so I wanted to share the information I found for how to plan a family trip to the Netherlands on a budget, and in our case for under $800!

Basilica of Saint Willibrord – Echternach, Luxembourg

Basilica of Saint Willibrord - Echternach, Luxembourg

Echternach is the oldest city in Luxembourg. We checked out the Basilica of Saint Willibrord and we ate lunch at a local restaurant. There is also a lake here that has a 1.5 mile walking path around it as well, I plan checking that out when the weather is a bit warmer. It’s about 40 mins from Spangdahlem so makes for an easy day trip.

Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain

Sagrada Família - Barcelona, Spain

I recently posted about our Half Day in Barcelona and that we visited Sagrada Família. While it’s probably one of the must see sights in Barcelona, at least for us, it does come with a steep price tag…although most sights in Barcelona do!

The Sagrada Família is an overly ornate church who’s design and construction was overseen by Antoni Gaudí starting in 1883 until his death in 1926. The church [Read more…]

April Things To Do Around Spangdahlem, Germany

April Things To Do Around Spangdahlem has some interesting things to go see during the Spring season. Last month we made to the Sankt Wendel Easter Market and it’s a recommend trip for y’all for next year! It was on my lift of the March events.
