I just booked flights for Paul and me to Europe from 26 December 2015. Paul will stay a month and then I’ll stay a second month. We fly into Holland where we will spend time with my extended family who live there. Then hire a car to explore Germany and Poland (and maybe a couple more places). Then I will travel to the Baltic States for a cycle tour on my fat bike.
It will be cold but it will also be fun. Paul has never seen snow and I’ve never experienced a proper winter.
