Happy Tuesday, friends!
Who else ever dreams of a little mid-week escape?! A month long excursion on your lunch break. A fun trip without ever leaving your desk. Well, we’re excited to share ours with you today! Prepare for photo overload (and a whole lot of images that have never been on the blog before!)
Exactly one year ago this week, we embarked on a trip of a lifetime. Over the first five years of marriage, we saved up for a big almost-month-long European adventure to celebrate our five year anniversary, hitting seven countries and countless cities, eating our weight in pizza, baguettes, gelato and crepes — and we even blogged about it all while we were on those long train rides! What we never shared here before though, are some of the live in-the-moment photos that we Instagrammed (yes, we’re definitely making that a verb!) while exploring the city side-streets and historical ruins across the pond. So, why share them now? Well, we were reminiscing about this trip together this week and remembered a conversation we had earlier this year about how we know social media will come and go over time, but this blog is here to stay! In a lot of ways, this blog has been a running diary of our life, and we want to be able to look back on this when we’re old and gray, like in The Notebook, and be able to read and recall and remember our greatest adventures. It’s been so special for us to get to share the things that are most special in our life with you, so thank you so much for journeying with us!
For anyone who wasn’t following along last summer, or for anyone (like us!) who just loves to travel down memory lane, we want to invite you to take the next few minutes and travel back in time, to run away with us, to escape and sneak away, just for a few minutes, to re-live some of the best moments of what will undoubtedly be one of the best summers of our life. Who knows? Maybe you’ll get some inspiration for your next big adventure! And just in case, we have some of our best travel tips at the bottom of this, just post for you!! Bon voyage, friends!
(Tip: You’ll get more a lot more fun out of these if you read the captions!! If you’re reading on your phone, flip it wide!)
Awwww, such great memories! Thanks for coming along with us! We hope this post has you dreaming of a future European adventure of your own, which is why we’ve included all of our best travel tips for you here! Enjoy, friends!
