Since I am spending this summer vacation at home, I thought I'd re-live a bit of last summer's vacation. Here's a retrospective of what I was doing this time last year in Heidelberg, Dresden, Berlin, Nice, Cannes, Monaco, Antibes, Ville Franche, Cologne, Aachen, Bruhl...so nostalgic.

Were in Ville-Franche quite late, and just barely made it to the train station in time for the last train back to Nice. Thankfully, as we were chilling on a bench on a platform, the nice man working there asked us if we were heading to Nice, yes, "um, you want to be on that train" which was about to pull out on the other side of the tracks. My flip flops have never run so fast. But here we are on the train....just made it.

Merry-Go-Rounds are seriously scary...hold on for life you can die on these things hahaha!

By the time we were back in Canada, our blood was surely comprised of nothing but wine.

Oh you know, just stumbled upon this magic garden one evening....

Jesus Shayne. We got stuck in the rain and spent a good hour waiting it out in a magnificent vestibule (um, ok so vestibule doesn't sound magnificent...but we had an amazing time)

Got ranied out here too (actually, the same rains that held us in the entrance above) and had a romantic vino under the umbrellas trying to stay dry)
