Throwback Thursdays: Our First Eurotrip

I’m going to start by saying that I’ve loved doing the occasional Throwback Thursday post, but I think that they have run their course and this will be the final one (for now).  I couldn’t think of a better way to end the series then with our first taste of Europe together.

Six years ago, my then boyfriend (who is now affectionately known as Hubs) and I were trying to figure out our next travel destination.  It would turn out to be our first international trip together, because Jamaica doesn’t really count. I was still working in the travel industry and got an amazing deal for a 14 day tour of Germany, so that’s where we were going. Of all the places in Europe we could have chosen, people thought we were a little odd for choosing Germany. It turned out to be an amazing trip, even with a few snafus in Munich. One of the highlights? Getting the opportunity to see Neuschwanstein Castle, which was the inspiration for Cinderella’s castle at the Disney parks. Hubs and I also have a fascination with WWII, so being able to be right in the heart of it was eye opening, and emotional – considering we visited Dachau concentration camp, the remains of the Berlin wall and one of the best Jewish museums in Berlin. It was then that I realized that I didn’t just want to read about places, I wanted to experience and live them. It was this trip to Germany that set my wanderlust for the world into full swing, and when I knew for sure that I was going to marry Hubs.
