My Favorite Time to Travel

August 27, 2014

My favorite time to travel is the fall. The crowds are gone, the weather is still fantastic. The leaves are so many beautiful colors, and the air is crisp. It’s perfection. Unlike the last 2 times we’ve been to Germany, which it’s been January and freezing. This time, I’m going when the leaves are turning. The grapes are being picked, and the air is full of promise. And I’m so excited to say that I’ll be spending 2 weeks traveling through Europe this fall. Visiting Paris, traveling all over Germany and the Czech Republic to visit family. So far, my plans involve lots of cake and train travel. They involve wandering down cobblestone streets and packing light. I’m excited for my first solo trip to Europe in six years. I plan to catch up on the magic, and shoot it all on film. And I can’t wait to share it all with you sometime after I return. For now, a few photos from the last time I was in Europe in the fall.

PS – I still wear that scarf. I picked it up the last time I was in Paris — in 2006.

Servus! I’m Emily and you’ve found my little corner of the internet, where I write about travel, intentionally living with less stuff, and living as a German-American family in Munich, Germany.  Want to know more?
