That’s right friends, the time has come. Me and my boo Jason are tying the knot this weekend!
What does that mean for you, dear reader??
For starters, Jason will be around to help me re-arrange furniture, lift heavy objects and open stubborn jars, now that I’ll have a man around full time. More immediately though, it means that our blog posts are going to take on a slightly more foreign flare.
We are going to London, Paris, and Belgium for our honeymoon! But here’s the thing: Jason has never been out of the country before! I’ve been to London and Belgium more recently (I have family in Belgium), but the last time I was in France I was 9 years old. We’re a little nervous about Paris, because neither of us speak French (our plan is to just be very polite and try to talk as little as we can), and my BFF Kristy taught me some helpful French phrases, such as:
Where is the…?
Ou est le/la…?
Pardonnez-moi or Excusez-moi
Je suis desole.
May I pet your dog?
Pouvoir je caresse votre chien?
That last one is pretty important to me, if there is a cute dog that needs petting I will be there. In spite of our fear of the French language, Jason and I very excited to experience each new place together.
The plan is to keep to my normal Tuesday/Thursday posting schedule, although the hours might be a little weird (I’ve never been great at figuring out time differences).
Me and my BFF Kristy went to London last year, so there are some things I definitely want to do again (eat cheese sandwiches from Borough Market!) and not do again (get stuck in a hedge maze in the rain).
Instead of staying in Hotels ($$$), and rather than staying at a hostel (sorry hostel-goers, we just don’t want to party with a bunch of strangers on our honeymoon), we’re staying in apartments we’ve booked through AirBnB.com ! When I went to London last year we used a similar apartment rental service, and it was great.
So give us some tips! What should we do in each city?? Is there some sort of awesome, out of the way spot that you discovered that you’d be willing to share with us? Any trip mistakes you’ll prevent us from repeating? (For mistakes, see hedgemaze photo above)
I’m so excited about this small travel adventure, and big life adventure with my pal. Thanks to those of you who have been a part of our lives thus far, we can’t wait for everything the future holds.
