Things have been busy trying to settle into a new house, new neighborhood, new job for Dani. Busy is good.
The wedding is coming up fast and I keep thinking that there are a million things that need to be planned but then really can’t think of anything. Maybe this is me procrastinating. Dani is taking care of some big tasks for the wedding this week so that is great!
Me, I much prefer planning vacations. As such I have started planning our European honeymoon. This will include me running the Amsterdam Marathon. The thought of another 42.2KM run scares me right now. Instead I will focus on the vacation part. The first step has been taken and I successfully booked a hotel on Priceline. I successfully booked Mövenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre. I believe I got a smokin’ deal but I find with Priceline sometimes the excitement of winning an unknown hotel can be disappointing.
First, I want everyone I know to confirm that I did in fact get a great deal. Second, I want to make sure that the hotel has AWESOME reviews so that I feel even better about my deal. I was pleasantly surprised when I read on TripAdvisor that it was ranked #13 out of 339 hotels.
So the first step is done. We know where we are going first. Now I am trying to decide on our route to Austria as we want to visit Innsbruk, Salzburg and Vienna. Right now I am leaning towards a train to Munich and then staying there for a couple of days before we head into Austria. I think that I will start religiously reading travel blogs now….
