So it’s official — Michael and I are going to France next month. Yikes! I don’t know if you guys remember, but we had plans to go to Europe, then changed our minds and seriously considered Hawaii instead due to several reasons. And as months passed, I kept asking myself ( everyday ) why we weren’t going to Europe. Although I made every excuse in the book ( money, work, etc. ), I knew in my gut that now is the time to go. Michael will be graduating grad school in May, which gives us a short + flexible amount of time before his new life in the real world that we felt should be taken advantage of. After all, my job has the luxury of being flexible! PLUS, we don’t have anything tying us down right now. It’s kind of perfect and now that everything has been settled, I don’t know why I was so wishy washy at first.
With that said, we’ve scaled down our original Europe plans ( which definitely eased my travel nerves ) and decided to stick to France this time around. We’re planning on six nights in Paris and three in Nice. The only thing we’re sure on as of right now is staying in Monmartre and roaming for a few days. I remember learning about it back in highschool ( I took FIVE years of French ) and it kind of stuck with me. If you have been to Paris or Nice, we would absolutely love to hear about your recommendations — especially neighborhoods to stay in or places to eat. We plan on doing a few touristy things, of course, but are true wanderers when it comes to traveling. Lots of walking, eating, and taking it all in. Oh and ps … I’ve never been to Europe, so there’s that. I can’t WAIT.
