We’re finally doing it.
We are finally planning a trip to Europe. Mind you, it will only be for one week, but you’ve got to start somewhere, right?
We have just enough sky miles for a ticket and a half, and may have gotten relatively lucky in the accommodations department (I’ll keep you posted). We’re thinking Paris and Guernsey in April, with a possible visit to London in between. We’re also trying to work a brief train ride in there somewhere, because I’ve got a thing for locomotives.
Since we will only be in Paris for two or three days, we shan't be very touristy. I definitely want to see the Louvre, Notre Dame, and the Eiffel tower. I would also love to visit Shakespeare and Company, an independent bookstore and lending library in the Latin Quarter. Otherwise, I just want to sit in cafes and stare at people. Do you think they’ll mind?
Guernsey is the main event. I have wanted to visit the Channel Islands since reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (a perfect book). Perhaps that’s a silly reason for planning an entire trip abroad, but before making fun please have a look at the photographs. This place is breath-taking.
And now for the point of this post: If you’ve got any tips, suggestions, and/or recommendations, please let me know! I
would very much appreciate need your input while planning this trip.
