Today is a post from Jeff- Sarah is allowing me to post on her Blog! (Begrudgingly)- If you think CC points are boring this probably is not the post for you. As many of Sarah’s readers may know, I enjoy dabbling in the credit card … Continue reading Points Baby!!!
06/08/17 Whirlwind of a day, started off with cupcakes and coffee (yes I know, I did not stutter. CUPCAKES) before catching a tour bus. The goal of today? Cram everything we haven’t seen yet into one day, ready, set, go! The first stop was Montserrat, … Continue reading Selfie-Mania & Architecture
I have to admit the weather was not what I was thinking. I thought since we were on the med it would be wicked hot like Paris 90F, not the case at all, it’s been 68F. My predictions have been totally off, I am officially … Continue reading Feeling Gothic
Beach day!!! Jumped out of bed today and for once it was me rushing Jeff and not the other way around. Dragged him down to breakfast in his swim suit, drank an entire pitcher of coffee and off we went. We walked by the Arch … Continue reading Speedos and Pina-coladas
Yes today is my birthday, the 5th, not the 6th as some of my family seem to think (yes I am calling you out). I woke up to a continental breakfast that blew my mind (yes the included version) there were fresh pressed juices, coffee, … Continue reading Happy birthday to me!
Half of our day was spent on a train. That in and of itself is stressful, add to that fact that the Spanish train lines and the French train lines are a different width and you have the recipe for a full blown Sarah meltdown. … Continue reading Trains and whimsy
06/03/17 We are on the train to Barcelona so I thought I would recount yesterday for you guys. It was a pretty rainy, soggy morning. Jeff was bummed but I am just telling myself that France is sad to see us leave. We tried to … Continue reading Pirates in Bordeaux
06/02/17 Bye Chateau Carbonneau! Bye countryside! Bye S60! We said goodbye to our new friends and started the trek back from wine country. It can really be daunting to wander off the well beaten tourism track, however since the Bordeaux region first started allowing wine … Continue reading Bordeaux and steak frites
06/01/17 In a shocking turn-of-events Jeff did not plan something starting at 8:00 AM (although he desperately wanted to)- We woke up and leisurely had breakfast with David and Alex (a lovely German couple staying at Chateau Carbonneau). He was scheming, no way he lets … Continue reading Location, location, location…medieval
05/31/17 Wine tour day! Today I (Jeff) put us on a tour to visit a few chateaus in one of the most prestigious wine regions in the entire world- the Medoc region. This region became especially famous after Napoleon lll designated vineyards into grand Cru … Continue reading Medoc and tours
05/30/17 Our first day in the Bordeaux region, Jeff is already antsy. Lucky for me he has already planned a day long adventure. We are going to the medieval village of Saint Emilion, the village was founded and named after a famous monk that performed … Continue reading Saint Emilion (not a saint)
05/29/17 So Jeff and I just left Paris. I swear Jeff almost cried. Yes that is how much Jeff loves Paris, as much as the Broncos but maybe slightly less than King Soopers( yeah it worries me too). We have already started scheming for our … Continue reading Au revoir Paris
05/28/17 Shopping day in Paris! On a Sunday! Oh wait, everything is closed on Sunday….right…. Window shopping and Eiffel tower- we had saved our shopping day for today, oh well, Ce la vie! As soon as we step out of the taxi at Rue de … Continue reading Michelin in Paris
05/27/17 Sometimes I think that someone will read this and think to themselves; There is no way any one couple has this many blonde moments in one day. Well believe it, this is our lives and today we forgot our tickets to the museum D’Orsay. … Continue reading Notre Don’t
05/26/17 So we both started today thinking it was tomorrow. By that I mean we woke up, went to breakfast, and chose our 10mi walk with a very specific destination in mind. We arrived at Eglise Saint Germain des Pres with 45min extra time and … Continue reading When are we?
05/25/17 Today we learned that wine has “legs”. You ever watch people who know about wine swirl the wine around in their glasses? It looks like a secret practice to those of us on the outside but actually serves two purposes. The first of which … Continue reading Wandering and Wine Tours
05/23/17-05/24/17 We thought we were killing it. Up on time, to the airport with 2hrs to spare for our 8AM flight. When we arrived at the front of the boarding pass line the attendant looked at Jeff’s passport and told us we couldn’t go on … Continue reading Day 1- The Honeymoon Excursion
