After putting it as a goal on my first 101 in 1001 list, and then my second, without checking it off, I’m extremely happy to say that for me, the third time was the charm. Last week, we went to Europe, and it was marvelous! Anytime I get to travel with John is my favorite, but this trip in particular was very sweet. I’ve wanted to go to France since my freshman year of high school, and it was almost hard to believe at times that I had really made it! A full report is coming soon, but in the meantime, here are the basics:

— We spent three days in Paris, two days in Provence, and three days on the Cote d’Azur.
— Everything that’s said about French people and baguettes is true – we ate so much bread during our stay! No one was complaining, though :)
— We walked almost 90 miles in 8 days (!!!), including 45 in Paris alone. My Toms sure were broken in by the end!

More to come soon!

P.S. I’m at 23 of 60 goals checked off on my 60 Before 30! Next up: nos. 14, 19, and 23 (surprisingly, I’m actually making progress!).

Hooray!! I’m so happy you and John were able to take your European vacation! It all looks like a dream, and I can’t wait to hear what you enjoyed the most and what your favorites were. I’m also super impressed with how many miles you two hiked – so very European of y’all!
