For a really long time Eric and I have been trying to go on a big trip. But we kept pushing the idea aside mainly because it can be hard to take time off of work and no matter how cheap you try to keep a big trip, it’s still going to cost some moolah.
A few months ago we got more serious and starting stalking plane tickets to various destinations, mainly in Europe. We checked our schedules and decided on a week. We skipped the Christmas presents to save money. And then finally last weekend we booked our plane tickets!
As you can, we booked tickets to Brussels, Belgium!
Our tentative plans are to fly into Brussels, spend some days there. Maybe take a day trip Ghent (and maybe see Melisser!). We are then going to take the train to Paris and spend a few days there before traveling back to Brussels to fly home. This will be my first time in Belgium and my fifth time in Paris, but this is Eric’s first trip to Europe!
We only have about four weeks to plan everything, so things have been busy around here. I’ve been making lists of places to stay, food to eat and sights to see. I’ve downloaded a few French podcasts and have been brushing up my skills.
If any friends have some suggestions for things to do, mainly in Belgium, we are all ears!
Also, if any super awesome friends want to come feed my cats while I am away, I will reward you with awesome European presents. I’m serious.
