Baylor in Great Britain: Group Travel to France

By Maggie King France for the weekend NBD… BGB/Millennium Tours really is like “Traveling for Dummies.” The day before our train to Paris we were given a two-day museum pass, transport card, and free boat tour ticket. Pretty much we were set to do anything we wanted for the weekend, and of course I had a itinerary ready for our group travel. Terri prepared it for me about a month ago when she saw all the free time we were allotted in Paris. We only had a group admission pass to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower planned; the rest was up to us. Guided Bus tour to hotel fun … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: From Paris with Love

By Chelsea Cates This past weekend, I traveled with a group to the one and only Paris, France. The trip was organized by Millennium Tours, so we were fortunate to have stress-free arrival and departure experiences in France. Our hotel was very nice and right by the Eiffel Tower. The first night, the whole group went up to the second level of the tower and took tons and tons of pictures, of course. The view from way up there was incredible; we could see the entire city! You can scroll through Google images of the view all day long, but you will never understand the beauty of it until you see … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: The Eternal City – Group Travel to Rome

By Myriam Villarreal La Città Eterna, The Eternal City, Rome. It was all I could hope for and more. The vibrant and lush colors that surrounded me as we drove into Rome mesmerized me. I couldn’t believe that I was setting foot in the city that began the civilization of the western world that we live in today. So much history, so much beauty, and so much life in one city, I could barely contain my excitement! I had been to Rome many years ago as a child, but my memories had faded and I wanted to experience new adventures in Rome as an adult. As we walked around Rome on our first night, we … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: On Holy Ground – The Churches of Dover

By Myriam Villarreal By far, my favorite part of the trip to Dover was strolling around the cobblestone-clad streets of the town. The Castle is not the only piece of history remaining in Dover, and many medieval churches are still scattered about the town, or at least the remnants of some. There was one church in particular that I favored most, Old St. James Church. The weathering stone arches that served as an entrance into the chapel were the most beautiful sights of architecture that I have yet to encounter during my time abroad. They still stood tall, providing a welcoming … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: A Week’s Worth of Audio Guides and Royal Births

By Maggie King Friday morning the troops assembled on the 11:36 Train at Waterloo Station for group travel to Hampton Court. This was King Henry the 8th’s home along with the six women he married through out his lifetime. 1-divorce 2-beheaded 3-died 4-divorce 5-beheaded 6-survived (it rhymes). We hadn’t made it half way through the gate doors before my parents were strapping an audio guide to my ears….just like old times. I did learn from the recorder and piped in music that the apartments, back then, where the best accommodations around, like a lavish hotel. Inside was the … [Read more...]

Baylor in Maastricht: The Best of Paris

By Madeline Wieters Being the planner that I am, I bought my first Rick Steves book in December and spent my entire Christmas break planning our trip to Paris and nearby areas. While very few of myplans actually came true this weekend, this incredible city did not disappoint. We left for Paris bright and early Friday morning. The Thalys makes it possible to get from Maastricht to Paris in about 3 hours so we arrived at 9:30 with the entire day ahead of us. We checked into our hostel, mapped out the sites we wanted to see via metro, and set out into the city. We started our tour at the … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: Liverpool – The Birthplace of the Beatles

By Chelsea Cates  Ever since I can remember, my daddy had me listening to the Beatles. In his eyes, they have always and ever will be the greatest band of all time. The band is made up of four Liverpudlians: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr (Richard Starkey). I recall a very fond memory as I picture my sister and I singing our favorite Beatles songs back home in Texas. We would always harmonize together while dad played the melody on guitar. In the Cates family, Beatles are in our blood, so it comes as no surprise that every last one of us have a slight … [Read more...]

Baylor in Maastricht: Going Local – Amsterdam & Maastricht

By Maddie Sligh I'm not going to lie, at first when people stayed home during the weekends, I thought they were so lame. All I could think was how can you stay home when you are in Europe?! As my friend Ellen said... Eur only young once. Then I got tired. Really tired. To the point where I did not want to get out of bed in the morning and it hurt to lay down. Paris was fantastic and absolutely exhausting (remember what I said about not leaving? Don't do it!!!) When I think about it, at this point I had been traveling for about two months non-stop. In between that and midterms the week … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: Stonehenge & Salisbury

While the majority of our group spent the weekend in Rome (jealous), Jenni and I planned an eventful one of our own. Thursday afternoon, we took a short trip to Salisbury, England. The train ride was only about an hour and a half. Getting to the train, however, was quite the experience! We were sure we knew which underground route would take us to the rail station, but of course upon arriving at the tube stop slight panic began to set in. We had only fifteen minutes to catch our train, and were absolutely clueless as to how to get there. After calling one of our professors and frantically … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: More Kings Than London Can Handle

By Maggie King It took my group until Wednesday to see our first show. After three phone calls with the ticket booth (one of which that ended with the guy laughing at me for asking about Matlida tickets…apparently it is sold out for the next three years) I finally had four tickets to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Our Wednesday classes go until 12, so Demi, Allie, Spencer and I grabbed lunch before our 2:30 show at Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Of course, my first attempt to find the place ended us up at The Royal Opera House…. the guy kindly pointed me down the next road to the giant … [Read more...]
