After spending 28 days traveling through 7 countries in Europe, I’m back home safe and sound! I want to share my trip with you by showing you some highlights and photos along the way.
Not only did I offer five free natural vision improvement walks in five different cities, but I also attended a weekend-long International Holistic Vision Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The trip began with some family time spent traveling with my sister through Budapest, Vienna, and Prague. Then I continued solo, offering free Vision Walks in Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, Edinburgh, and London. Here are some highlights of the trip below:
BUDAPEST, VIENNA, and PRAGUE

I thought it was auspicious that my Airbnb in Budapest had an eye chart light fixture.
My first vision walk was in Letna Park in Prague, Czech Republic. Adam traveled all the way from Poland to participate in the walk!
The Brandenburger Tor on the day before my Vision Walk in Berlin.
My makeshift Vision Walk signs to make it easier for people to find me at our meetup locations!
Three people came to my Vision Walk in Berlin at the beautiful “Fairy Tale Fountain” in Volkspark am Friedrichshain.

I traveled 1700 miles / 2700 kilometers on trains in 28 days! The longest train ride was 7 hours from Berlin to Amsterdam.
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS
Despite the cloudy/rainy weather, Amsterdam was still gorgeous!

One person came to my Vision Walk in Edinburgh, and we ended up getting some vegetarian lunch after!
My friend Barry and I climbed up to the top of Arthur’s Seat to get a 360 degree view of Edinburgh.
One of the main reasons for my trip was to attend my first International Holistic Vision Conference.
Dozens of people from all over the world came together to share knowledge and experience about the Bates Method of natural vision improvement at the 26th International Holistic Vision Conference.

Six people came to my Vision Walk in London, and we tried our best to stay warm on an overcast day in Regent’s Park.

I saw this big eye on my last day of my Vision Tour through Europe. What a good omen to end the trip!
