We love Europe. But we aren't going.

We feel that you should know (in the name of full disclosure.  And since we've become so close) that (brace yourselves) our itinerary doesn't include Europe.  

Whoa whoa whoa cool it.  Here's why:

  1. Relative to other parts of the world, Europe is a fairly expensive region.
  2. We've been very lucky in the amount of times we've gotten to travel within Europe.  
  3. We feel most comfortable there.  And now is the time for discomfort. 
  4. The Main Reason: Most places in Europe are amazing no matter what your age.  And now isn't the time for that.

We aren't ruling out a quick jaunt to Spain from Morocco or hopping to a Greek Isle from Turkey (see Blakely plotting already?).  But for now, we'll have to content ourselves with knowing that we'll always have Paris.
