After an eventful four weeks, it’s finally time for us to say our goodbyes to Europe. Right now, I can’t even begin to reflect on everything we’ve learned and experienced. This trip has been fun at the same time it’s been challenging, and that in and of itself has made it memorable.
If anything at all, I’m so glad for the peculiar melange of people we’ve met along the way. All of our Airbnb hosts, Blandine, Carolyn, and HP, were truly wonderful people, and we’d gladly stay with them again. (We also highly recommend using Airbnb.) Our friends in Paris, new and old, showed us an unbelievable time in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and the new friends we made in Berlin and on the train back to Paris were characters we’ll never forget. Arezoo, Bertrand, and their hilarious children Alex and Clarice were the perfect family with whom to end our vacation. It would be a small miracle if we could ever reciprocate their kindness and hospitality.
But really, we can’t wait to be back home. The Bay Area really is an incredible place. Thanks for keeping up with us! A bientot!
