I love traveling and this past summer was no exception. If you read my past blog posts, you can see that I did some traveling within the US but my big vacation this year was going back to Europe to visit family. We try to go back every 2 years and we’ve been very fortunate that we have been able to do that! This trip was definitely my favorite trip to Europe. We got to travel to other countries other than France (which is an amazing trip by itself) and we also got to spend so much more time with family and I also got to meet some of my husband’s family members that I’ve never met before!
First stop was Belmont to meet some of the family I’ve never met before. It was such a fun 3 days filled with hiking, food, and WINE. And I mean lots of wine. It was great 😬
I obviously took WAY too many pictures but restrained myself from posting them all 😅 But how beautiful are the views? And of course a quick snapshot of my sweet sweet french family ❤︎
After Belmont, it was time to go to PROVENCE!!! I have been wanting to go to this region forever and this year was the year to go! We had a whole week there! Yes, we saw the lavender fields (duh), sunflower fields, more food, more wine, more hiking and family time! This region is so so beautiful! If you ever have the chance to visit France, please make a point to visit the Provence region!
While we were in Provence, we took a day trip to Nice since it was only 2 hours away. We wen to the beach, explored the city, and ate such good vegan food.
After Provence, we went to SWITZERLAND!! My brother in law and his gf lives in Vevey and we had the chance to stay with them for a couple of days. And man, this town is so beautiful!! Literally no words to describe it, you just have to see it for yourself. And yes, I had fondue (NOT VEGAN!!) but I just couldn’t pass it up!
After a couple of days in Vevey, it was time to say goodbye to Switzerland and hello to Belgium! My other brother in law and his gf lives in Brussels so of course we had to go stay with them too, it was only fair 😜 And you guessed it: food ,wine, family time!
After Brussels, it was on to the last leg of our trip: Paris ❤︎ Seeing the Eiffel Tower will never get old to me!
After Paris, it was time to go back home and back home to the dogs! But you better believe I’m already thinking about our next trip back ❤︎
What about you?? Did you travel anywhere this past summer? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time,
