I was recently lucky enough to travel to Europe with Jane for 5 weeks. It was something we had planned for a few years and it turned out to be the trip of a lifetime. We crammed as much as we could into every day and tried to learn as much as we could about each place we visited. We spent most of our time in London, then driving around Ireland and Scotland, catching up with Jane’s relatives in Holland and finishing off in Switzerland. Some of the “non-sightseeing” things we learned on our travels included:
In 5 weeks full of highlights, those that couldn’t be surpassed was meeting Jane’s uncles, aunties and cousins as well as visiting where Jane’s mum grew up.
Overall , our trip reinforced how much we have to be thankful for, the importance of family, the importance of thinking of and helping others (as we were on the receiving end so many times) and the importance of patience.
We can’t wait to plan for another trip in a few years’ time!
