So May and June are insane for us. You may remember me posting a little negative rant about Orbitz last week, but Cheaptickets ended up coming through for us and we’re going to Africa! We’ve never been before, so we’re super psyched!
So May and June will have us in South Africa, Swaziland, France, Australia, and Fiji. We’re hoping to add Zimbabwe and Mozambique to that list, but that’s still up in the air.
And since blogs are better with pictures… This is from our first trip to Europe together. Having never held a camera, I bought a film rebel the day before we left, slapped that bad boy on P mode (auto mode), and rifled off about 30 rolls across the continent for 2 and a half months :D This was toward the beginning of our journey – I think roll #4 – in Paris. Had no clue what anything would look like as I didn’t develop the rolls ’till we got home…
I get so nostalgic looking at this photo. We gave plasma (white blood cells) TWICE a week – EVERY WEEK – for an entire year for us to go on this trip across Europe. We didn’t have a real honeymoon, so I wanted so badly to take my new wife on the trip she deserved for our year anniversary. I secretly stashed the money aside for a whole year, booked the trip, and told Lindsay we were going on Christmas morning – two days before we left. Amongst visiting nearly every country in Europe, we spent New Years and our anniversary in London and Valentine’s day in Prague – not bad :D
At the time, there were far more responsible things to spend the money on. Not a day goes by where I’m not thankful we lived in the moment and just did it. I’ll never forget discovering an entire continent – with literally no plans made – with Lindsay at that stage of our marriage.
Oh and Garrett will be in London (where he got his masters degree in philosophy) the same time and we’ll probably have a meet up in Paris. Last time we met up in Paris we were waiting for him at the train station and saw Claudi Schiffer – so we’ll see what celeb Gare brings this time :)
Here’s a photo from the last time we were all in Paris together and then a couple random ones from other trips…
Also, all you Euro bloggers out there, I was thinking about extending our stay to maybe do a little workshoppy/photoshoot type thing with a couple in Paris – email me or comment here if you guys would want to do something like that! Ryanair and Easyjet (as you guys probably know) can get you over there for pretty cheap. May 27th?
