Because I arrived here in June of 2008, I typically plan our trips from June to June. We started the traveling season this year with a Scandinavian cruise to Latvia, Denmark, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Finland. In August, we drove down to Italy to celebrate our 4th anniversary in the Cinque Terre Region. The Fall brought trips to Edinburgh, Scotland; Nancy, France; and Vilnius, Lithuania. We'll be spending Thanksgiving in the Canary Islands and Christmas in Egypt. For the second time, I'll ring in a birthday in Paris, France. Right now, trips for Feb-June 2012 are still in the early planning stages. Our baby is due in April, so I'm not quite sure where we'll go once we're a party of three. We are planning a trip to the States in late June..will this be the baby's first trip? Who knows! As it is, our lucky little fetus will have been to at least seven different countries traveling in the comfort of my growing belly! Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin, and Normandy are all relatively close by cities that are high on my list to visit. Trips to Slovenia, Slovakia, Estonia, Romania, Bulgaria, and Southern Ireland are also on my list..so little time, so much to see!
