I have been literally buzzing with happiness since yesterday afternoon when Adam and I got all booked up for our fall vacation to London …. AND PARIS!
After a recommendation from one of my clients last Friday we have decided to stop in Paris for two nights and then take the Eurostar over to London for the rest of our trip.
Did you know it only costs $70 to take the Eurostar from Paris to London and the trip is only 2 hours and 15 minutes?! So cool!
This is our first trip to Europe together (my first trip to Europe EVER), and will be the perfect way to celebrate both Adam’s 30th birthday and our 10 year anniversary. We’ve been planning the trip since January and now that we have our plane tickets it feels REAL!
The craziest part? We return home from London on Monday night and then Friday of that week we fly out to Portland so I can run 26.2 miles with a bunch of awesome people!!!
To help deal with some of the jet lag I’ve got Tuesday off of work so that I can hopefully sleep all day and get back on track. Thank goodness I’ll be in the taper that week! : )
By the way, if you are still looking for a fall marathon I would highly suggest Portland! In addition to all the normal stuff, they give all finisher’s a tree seedling so you can plant a tree in commemoration of your race which I think is the coolest thing ever. (Hurry because it’s almost booked up!)
I can’t wait for Portland… and for Paris and London!
Where did you do your first marathon (or half or 5K)?
Have you ever been to Paris and/or London? If so, please give me a tip for the trip!
