This blog has been ignored for far too long. I recently had to pay the annual hosting and URL renewal fee, so might as well get some use out of it!
A lot has happened in the past 2 years. Most excitingly, we had a baby! Little Max is already 14 weeks and so cute. So far, he has spent one night in a hotel room, two nights in a tent, and three nights at my parents’ house. Coming up: a trip on the BC Ferries and a night at his other grandparents’ house!
Our little family of 3 is planning a 6-week European adventure this fall, before I go back to work.
For half of our trip, we will be doing a house exchange to Freiburg, Germany. For the remainder, we will be staying in private apartments in Rome, Bologna and Florence for 3 weeks total. On the itinerary so far: wine tasting in Alsace, visits to cities near Freiburg (Strasbourg and Ulm for sure, hopefully some in Switzerland as well), and seeing the Last Supper in Milan.
I’m glad we started planning this trip before Max was born. There hasn’t been much time to do travel planning since his birth, and the sleep deprivation likely would have meant I would have been too tired to even consider travelling for such a long time and distance.
