Even though Paris and Scotland are our scheduled destinations on this trip, I found a sneaky way to sqeeze one more country onto the itinerary. The flight from Paris to Edinburgh is only about 2 hours but for some reason most of the journeys come with extremely long layovers. Layovers are annoying .
Our mission in Paris was to relax and just “be” in the city. I had visions of us sitting in cafés, and wandering around with no sense of time. However as soon as we touched down, an unintentional fire under lit under our asses and we hit the ground running.
Our Paris apartment is on the 7th floor with no elevator, which is only good for one reason: it allows us an extra chance to burn off some off the carbs we’ve eaten that day.
When Nick and I reminisce about Paris, the topic of food comes up every.single.time.
Since we’d been to Paris before, we decided to shake things up a bit and take a day trip to explore a little more of this beautiful country.
Claude Monet’s house and garden is located in the picturesque village of Giverny, and it is perfection.
Nick and I have been wanting to do a Paris/Scotland trip for years but I kept getting distracted by cheaper, jungly destinations. Earlier this month, I received a fare alert for $750 round trip tickets to Paris (in the summer!) and it was finally a done deal.
