We’re going to France, Italy and Greece for a month!!!!!!!
I’m besides myself with excitement! We were going to go to Thailand and Bali, then it dawned upon me, I’m allergic to shellfish, what do they eat in Thailand and Bali? Yeah, anaphilactic shock, not sexy at all…. sooo we’re going to Europe!!!
FI has never been, I went to France and Italy when I was younger, and don’t remember much but Greece is a first for both of us.
Our plan right now is to road trip/back pack/take trains all over the south of france and northern italy for three weeks and end with a week in greece. Of course, greece also depends on the political situation at the time but w/e I’m excited!
We can almost buy plane tickets, just two more weeks give or take so they’re available but YAAAYYYY!!!!
Any advice on any of the countries? Where to go/eat/sleep/do?

How exciting. When are you going? What kinds of things are you into? If you’ve sightseeing buy decent walking shoes, after walking around Rome I was grateful for decent shoes. Try the pizza and ice cream in Italy…It’s amazing. The wine in France is amazing. I would go on a wine tour. The beaches in Greece are stunning. Have a brilliant time.

We’re having a religious ceremoy/blessing in june so we’re going then for the whole month, much better weather than december! We’re both into culture and adventure and I am not against laying in the sun for a while….. So far the idea is spending about three days in the main cities, Paris and Rome and then explore the countryside, either rent a car or use the bus/train system. Southern France and Northern Italy (can’t WAIT for the food!) are a must and then ending it all with a week or so in Greece, visit two or three islands maybe… I went to France and Italy when I was little, but honeymooning there is a whole other ordeal! Thanks for the suggestions

@minipenguin: How exciting!
We are staying in America for our “honeymoon.” We are actually just going to explore in our home state of Michigan & go to an amusement park in Ohio.
But, as much fun as we are going to have, I’m still envious of the fun you & your future Husband will have!
Can’t wait to share our re-cap picture with you on our purple & green wedding so you know what will work for you, & what won’t. So excited for you!
