As we all know, I love to travel. Therefore when Joy decided to get married in Switzerland I said YES! Back in January I booked my flights to and from Europe including stops in Iceland, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden. I was all set to head off to Europe on my own (once again) and along came Mike. Luckily for me he also loves to travel and jumped at the chance to come to Europe and see my best friend get married. To make it even more exciting for him, he’d NEVER been to Europe before. Cue epic adventure in my beloved Europe!
We departed on our adventure May 11 and returned to the True North (AKA Canada) May 31. Okay, it was barely May 31 but still, 2 am counts right? In three weeks we covered the above mentioned four countries, visited two different groups of family members (I love having one whole side of the Family in Germany!), one friend from days gone by, watched my bestie get married, battled sickness and sunburns (both me), and culture shock (that one was Mike). I used my German for the first time in close to 10 years – I don’t count the occasional conversation with my Father as really using it, they don’t last more than a few minutes! Since this journey was a full 20 days, versus my much shorter Scotland adventure, I will break the post up by cities as opposed to days. Please join me as I relieve our adventures. I hope you have fun living vicariously through the two of us!
