Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam – COUNTDOWN!

5 weeks, 5 weeks, OMG 5 weeks! Countdown is on to be reunited with my fiery haired friend. 🙂

After 90+ days of g-chat, skype and lonely Saturday Starbucks runs, we will finally be back together! And the most exciting part – we are meeting in Paris!

Ahhh, the city of looooooooove!  I’m day dreaming of croissants, cafe au lait, street vendors, champagne and lots of strolling the streets hand in hand!


We are planning a few days in Paris exploring the city. I’ve been once before for 2 days and Mike has never been. I am thinking we’ll see all the top spots – Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Avenue des Champs-Élysées, perhaps a river cruise, Notre Dame and a museum or two!

We also want to spend a day at the beaches of Normandy to soak up some history and see some of the countryside along the way.

After I’ve had my fill of pain de chocolate, we are heading to Brussels – for more bread and more chocolate! I smell a few Belgium waffles in my future!

Ahh, melting at the toppings!

We plan to spend a short time in Brussels and also hope to squeeze in a day trip to Brugge. These days will be filled with beer, chocolate, waffles and exploring! If anyone has been and has suggestions on things to do, please give us some ideas!

So many to choose from!

The trip will end with a day or two in Amsterdam – exploring the canals, biking around the city and stopping at markets and cafes along the way.

Hop on!

Such great day dreams for a dreary Monday morning!

We’d love any suggestions you have for our trip! Can’t wait to share the recap in a few short weeks!
