On the Continent

9 Mar

Steve likes to pretend he’s still in college. Like the one time he hosted an “Amateur Day” party and made us all do jello shots and play drinking games in his garage. He also wanted to bring back spring break. Unfortunately for me, he went for classy rather than authentic – so we’re not going to Panama City or Daytona. A bit of an upgrade really, to western Europe.

So, I’m hitting Amsterdam, Paris and Brussels over eight busy days. I’ve done my shopping, chosen my wardrobe inspiration pics (sure to be uninspired once I unpack) and converted dollars to euros. I’d love to hear any of your recommendations for those cities, or just for European travel in general. We have some definite plans, like hotels, train tickets and sight-seeing to-do’s – but suggestions are welcome, as I will otherwise spend quite a bit of time being dragged for eight-hour walks through each city by Steve. Which would be awesome, of course, except that he never sits down or eats or rests. Just walks. Help?

Merci.

    i am so jealous…i love all 3 of these cities…
    since i stalk you via your blog, i know that i also have reason to be jealous b/c of your kindle/reader, but if you’re ever in the mood for books, shakespeare and company in paris is really awesome. and for some reason, i loved the arc de triumph in paris. very pretty.
    when i was in brussels i think i only ate and drank…but i think that’s what you’re supposed to do in waffle and beer country.
    have fun!!

    I have a friend who lives in Eindhoven and spends much time between Amsterdam, Paris & everywhere in between. Here’s her blog: http://one-sly-bookworm.xanga.com – she’s got a good amount of posts about places she visits, fun places they’ve eaten, etc. Maybe you can find a couple of places to add to your list. Have a fabulous time!
