Winter/Christmas Holiday Booked!

In Uncategorized on 6 December 2008 at 22:04

This evening, Jenny and I booked our trip for Winter/Christmas Break.  After much deliberation and as much searching on the Internet, we’ve decided on seeing Switzerland and Northern Italy.

It’s exciting for many reasons, one of which is that we’ve not traveled much since living in England.  Granted, we’ve only been here for two months, but with so many destinations within reasonable reach, we just haven’t take appropriate advantage.

I’m not really sure what to expect from our trip.  I have these images of mountains, snow, trains, and what looks to be a Red Cross flag.  Along with these obvious and natural images I also see myself reenacting this Ernest Hemingway pose while skiing in the Alps in only a sweater.  It seems so posh to have booked this trip, but again, for an hour-and-forty-five-minute-flight, it’s anything but.

Also just wanted to state that this was not our first idea for the Christmas holiday.  Originally, we were planning on meeting family in St. Louis and Orlando, but that had since fallen through.  While it is disappointing that we will not see our families during this time, I think we are both excited and thankful that we can take in something new and rare.
