Our Time

“In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dull and know I had to put it on the grindstone again and again and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well-oiled in the closet, but unused.” 

-Hemingway

Dog Days 2014 1

Amongst all the wiser decisions, we've decided this is what we have to do. We are leaving in a few short weeks to study art, see the world, and hopefully figure out ourselves a bit more. We will be spending a week in Paris, a month in Berlin, and will hit a few other places (Brussels, Amsterdam, and Copenhagen). We've worked really hard to make this happen and are both thrilled and anxious. (Anxious to get the most out of it as possible!) We'd love any travel advice you have! What to do/see/pack/eat/anything!

  1. Bring a change of clothes and toothbrush/toiletries in your carryon. Sometimes the luggage comes a bit delayed and you'll be happy you had it with you! Happy travels Claire!

  2. Awesome. So exciting! I love the south of France...it's beautiful and is full of charming cities, especially the small places...especially Aix-en-Provence and Bordeaux!

    1. I've been dying over your adventures the past little bit. Wish we could visit south France but Paris is the only spot we'll hit...guess we better plan another trip ;)

  3. I just got back a few weeks ago from my first big European trip. Paris was my very favorite! The streets, the women, the food! Eat a pain aux chocolate every morning. And the rain is no joke. We bought an umbrella and carried it every day. It was a life saver. I wish I had brought waterproof shoes/ boots or something. My favorite shopping there was at COS. My favorite dinners were spent buying a baguette, cheese, and whatever else looked amazing at the supermarket and taking it somewhere quiet. Have fun!

  4. Best advice ever given: don't try and see everything and do everything! Choose the things you REALLY want to do or have always dreamed of doing, and actually enjoy them.
    Also--if you love impressionist art, make sure you check out the Muse D'Orsay in Paris. Not only is the art amazing, the building is wonderful (and old train station).
    Oh and another thing--parks are wonderful. enjoy lots of strolls in the park with your man.
