Even though we fell asleep pretty early on our first night in France, neither the Firefighter or I wanted to wake up the next morning. After forcing ourselves to get moving, we grabbed breakfast at the hotel since “continental breakfast”was included in our price. The Firefighter was impressed with Europe’s version of a continental breakfast because it included various sliced meats, small pickles, breads, cheeses and the like. Personally, I was happy because Nutella is always a given with breakfast and what’s not to like about that?
The Firefighter and I knew that we wanted to go on a pretty amazing trip for our honeymoon, which is why we didn’t take off immediately after our wedding. Waiting until the fall allowed us to recover from all of the wedding craziness and also gave us something to look forward to in the interim.
The Firefighter had never been overseas before, so my goal while planning the itinerary was to try and see as much as possible within about a two-week time period. We decided to start off with a week-long Mediterranean cruise, embarking in Marseille and making stops in Barcelona, Naples, Florence, Rome and Cannes, and spending a couple of days in Paris and London. From start to finish it was a total of 16 days.
