The time has finally come!! Our Europe vacation starts TODAY!!
We will be traveling for just under 2 weeks. We will miss our little princess, Lennox, so very much – but we are also very excited to have a mommy/daddy break and go experience all that we can while on vacation! Lennox will be having lots of fun at home with Grandma & Papa and the hardest part is that we won’t get to talk with her – but I know we’ll get plenty of updates along the way!
We are visiting Venice, one of my top destinations ever(!), Paris (also close to the top of my list) and the top of Kyle’s list, London!
I think Venice is going to be one of the most unique places we have ever traveled and will travel.

There is no where else in the world that is like Venice. I can’t wait to see the sun hit the colorful buildings, the gondolas going by, watch the way the people of Venice live! The best quote I have read about Venice, was that if you don’t get lost – you haven’t experienced Venice! I look forward to getting lost!
Paris! The city of lights. The architecture, the landmarks, the style, the food – everything about Paris sounds exciting to me.

We honestly don’t know the majority of what Paris has to offer – but we are going to be experiencing it all! I’m looking forward to seeing and feeling what it’s like to be staying in Paris. We decided to forgo a hotel in Paris and get a flat, in the heart of the city (close to the Louvre). We are staying on one of the oldest streets in Paris in a small studio flat. We’ll be across the street from a fresh fruit market, a bakery and an old Louis XIV royal fountain! We’ll see what one of the most romantic cities in the world has to offer us!
London – My favorite place I have ever been! I was lucky enough to visit London and the UK 3 times as a teenager with my parents.

I don’t know what it is about London but I just love it. The big city, the people, the sights, the sounds (read: the accents) and just the ease of the city! I look forward to bringing Kyle to the Tower of London – one of the best spots in London and walking down the bustling Portobello Road Market in Nottinghill on Saturday morning!
While I’m gone….
While I’m gone – make sure to pay attention to my Facebook Page, as I will be sharing a bunch of travel related posts, as well as some fun posts from a few of my blogger buddies!
When I can (at night in the hotel most likely) I’m sure I’ll be sharing a few photos from the day on Instagram – so follow me there as well! I’ll be trying to remember to use #TerrellsTravel on all my photos I share. Here is the latest stream:
Once we are back in the US – expect lots of great photos, memories and stories about our trip!
