It is finally here..
I have been waiting for our trip to Europe. this stretch from the time we returned from Christmas break, to this next break, is 11 weeks. Most other breaks, besides the long summer break, is about 8 weeks.
So, I have been planning our trip to Europe since, oh...about the end of January, and it is almost here! We leave next Friday.
My son is going on a middle school trip to Switzerland on Wednesday. I think these types of trips for children, where there is some degree if responsibility and learning how to cope without your parents always on top of everything, is so beneficial. I believe they help build confidence and reliability on yourself. He will get to tour the United Nations in Geneva, as well as hike up Mount Zermatt. He will be staying in a secure and beautiful setting...and we are thinking of coming back here for a summer camp for both children.
My husband, daughter and I are leaving a few days later, and exploring around some first. Before we pick him up, we will drive around the southern coast of France, past Monaco and Nice, on our way from Marseille to Genova, Italy. Then we drive over the Alps to arrive at his camp. We continue on spending a night or two in Interlaken and Luzern. We will drop off the car in Zurich and enjoy a few days in Paris and Amsterdam.
It should be a whirlwind tour, but I am so excited. I will have much to post about upon my return. I will take a lot of photos I am sure so get ready for some long posts!
Hope you all enjoy the weekend~
