The hard earned vacay is finally about to begin :) The Mister and I hop on to a plane in a couple of hours from now. I've been sewing tons for the webstore to stock it up, but to my surprise, the goodies vanished faster than I thought...oh not complaining at all..I'm so thankful to you for giving my babies a well loved home. This trip is new to us in every way. We've dipped into our savings for the very first time to spend it on a trip to Europe, we've also booked ourselves into AirBnB apartments which is something we never thought we'd have a chance to do. Its a very chuffed and proud sort of moment for the both of us and I'd like to share that moment with y'all. I'm sure most of you've been off on travels like this alot, but you'd surely remember the first time with fondness noh?
I'm not a very easy traveller you see, and you'll fall off your chairs if I'd told you I'm carrying my favourite green tea, masala chai and even my homemade garam masala, just incase we decide to eat daal - chawal (Lentils and rice) some day :) I fought with myself over keeping the travel iron, but I couldn't imagine not taking it and the Mister just put it in for fear of running to the laundromat or drycleaners to get my clothes wrinkle free hahahaha The things my sweet better half does I tell you. I'm pretty happy I'm all packed in medium sized suitcase :)
So well I'm hoping to change this anxious me during this trip and learn to loosen up a bit. And ofcourse I shall play the tourist to the tee! Browse in and out of museums, cycle, walk around, stop at a cafe and look at people hahahaha that's a favourite by the way ;-) We've decided to take the trains through various cities rather than hop on and off planes...way too exhausting. Oh hold on..so the trip route is Amsterdam, Cologne, Brussels, Bruges and finally Paris. I don't think I mentioned that did I? So that's 5 cities and 4 countries in 15 days. We're not jumping all across, but doing just one small part at a time. We spend 6 days in Paris...isn't that wonderful? I can't get over it too...
I'm going crazy googling on craft and fabric stores across..know any, please drop in a line. I will have a wifi connection throughout and I hope I can write in some fresh posts each day to share the joy with you.
Well I need to get all ready before the cab arrives to ferry us to the airport..so yeha..I'll take all your Bon Voyages happily with me and brace myself for our first of its kind trip :) Till we meet next...ciao for now!
PS Just so you don't miss the note on the website, I won't be able to ship any new orders till Wednesday the 23rd, but you could always keep the orders coming in if you don't find the wait too long.
You would definitely love Brugge! Not saying that about Paris, as that's something everyone knows :-) Don't forget to taste the Belgian waffles. Do lots and lots of shopping, click pictures and enjoy! 15 days is a decent time to see the 5 cities that you chose. Bon voyage!!ReplyDelete
Hey Devjani.. Good to know we made the right choice of cities..yes you're right, am jokingly telling the world Paris is my favorite city without even being there hahahaha Oh yes have to try the waffles and click drooling snaps..aaah dont think the Mister will be thrilled to hear the shopping bit but I'll do it anyway 😉 Thank you so much for writing in here.ReplyDelete
:-) Now that you are back, would love to hear how was the trip and what all you did!Delete
Waiting eagerly to read your memoirs...with photos of course.ReplyDelete
:)) Yes very soon...cannot wait to get it all out here. It was truly wonderful and quite an adventure too.Delete
