It’s hard to believe that 6+ years into dating, Jeremy has been to Europe several times but we hadn’t actually traveled together. Now at his current job, he goes at least once a year. I didn’t want to try to tack a trip for us on top of his conference work, so we strategically picked a week in the summer when his conference/travel schedule is a bit lighter.
We went through several iterations of where we wanted to go and how we’d do it, but for only a week we tried to keep it simple. A lovely couple from Wales we met very kindly were like, ‘oh, you have just the week?’ Of course, they were on month 2 of their honeymoon, so we were no where on their level.
Anyway, we spent the first half in Paris, with a day trip to Reims (for an awesome e-bike champagne tour), and the last half in Amsterdam, with a day trip riding a motorbike through the countryside (old dutch towns, omg!). It was truly fantastic.
