Europe here I come!
Photo from this link about Paris.
I must say, this year, I'm quite proud of accomplishing a few things on my bucket list. First, I ran a marathon (lolol, and I haven't run since), and now I'm heading to Paris, France!!!!!
In high school and college, I took 4 years of French lessons. Everyone was like "Um, you live in FLORIDA, why aren't you taking Spanish?" But my answer was always "Because ONE day, I'm going to Paris!" And, eh, not that I remember any of the French now a days, but it's finally a dream come true.... I'm going to Paris!!!!
Mom and I wanted one last big mother/daughter adventure before I get married next Spring. Before my dad got cancer, we were planning for the three of us to go to Rome where my dad always dreamed of going. But when he got sick, obviously that trip didn't happen. So now mom are heading to not only Rome, not only Paris, but all over Europe. We are taking a guided tour with a group of people, starting in London and working our way through Europe down to Rome.
Eeeeeeeek! I'm so excited! I've been to other countries in the Caribbean, but never a non-tropical country. I can't wait to simply be a tourist, instead of traveling just for work. I will though have my camera and look forward to sharing photos when we get back!
I would love to hear from you any tips you have about traveling in Europe! Or if you are in Europe reading this, can you tell me what the weather is like in your country? I'm clueless what to pack and wear.
Also, with this said, I'm turning this into a true vacation and will answer all emails and phone calls when I am back in the country and back at my desk on September 13. In the meantime, I've got my blog scheduled to share some amazing weddings I second shot in California with Stephen in July. Enjoy those while I'm gone!
