Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 81-83

Monday 20th-22nd August 2017 This was it; we were at the very end of our trip. Our final three nights were spent in France, chilling out in a rural farmhouse we’d found on Airbnb.

Monday 14th August Today was all about hiking in the Swiss Alps, which was a bit of a shock to the system after a full week of sitting around, eating Italian food and drinking Disaronno. Fortunately, we had some pretty incredible views to keep us going.   Morgan’s brother, Max, was travelling with us for… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 74
