I think Chuck and I have decided on how to divvy up my highly anticipated EuroTrip(s), now that I know we can’t pull off my original plan:
- FRANCE, March 2014
- ITALY, October 2015
It seems that Italy is the place to enjoy in the fall, when the heat of summer still lingers. It’s a more coastal, outdoorsy place than France, so I think we don’t want to “waste” Italy in early spring. Plus, October 2015 will be our 5-year wedding anniversary… and you can’t get much more romantic than a trip to Italy to celebrate 🙂
So! This means I’m currently focusing my energy on a 10-day trip to France. I think we will still include a brief visit to London at the beginning, which shouldn’t be too difficult or costly. Then we will EuroStar to Paris, then TGV to Provence, then consider a short side trip to the French Alps (Annecy) before heading back up to Paris.
Haven’t decided if we’ll explore Paris at the start, or at the finish, but that’s the plan for now!! I’d like Rosetta Stone as a (very) early birthday or Christmas present so I can learn the language, which I’ve always wanted to do anyway. I will have lots of free time in Georgia and will need something to do!
