we hate to sound like we’re bragging, but frank and i are thrilled to announce that we’re officially going to europe this summer. we’ve been talking about this trip for quite awhile, but we now know that we’re really going because we bought our plane tickets!

while in the peace corps frank lived in bulgaria. since returning to the united states he’s wanted to visit bulgaria and his host family again. he’s also looked forward to sharing this special place with me. thus, we always knew that our first BIG trip would be to bulgaria. we plan on spending about three weeks in the country, visiting his host family, the capitol, and the beaches along the black sea. while there we’ll also see ancient cities, forests filled with wolves and bears, a monastery, and roman ruins. if you’d like to learn more about bulgaria, check out this website.

below are two pictures from frank’s previous trip.

frank and i were never sure of where we would begin and end our trip, however. living on the west coast, we knew we would probably need to stop in new york and somewhere else in europe on the way to and from bulgaria. we lucked out and found an excellent ticket deal with a direct flight from seattle to london, england. loving the price and the idea of visiting england frank and i quickly purchased two tickets. i visited the british isles in 2002 as part of a study abroad program. like frank, i’ve looked forward to returning and sharing the sights with him. we’ll be bookending our trip with a few days in london (or perhaps some surrounding cities). i can’t wait to see the tower of london, the british national museum, and perhaps cambridge again!
