Hello everyone, I hope you all are doing well. After five of the happiest years I've ever experienced, I've purchased a big ol' diamond for my lady's hand to show her my gratitude. Even if she doesn't say yes, this woman deserves ever bit of effort and money I can spend. Her love is quite literally, life changing and mind altering. Now, both of us being American, we are descendants of European families that still continue thrive in the very places that our names originated. Her coming from a truly amazing line of French craftsmen and artists, and me being a descendant of Erwin Rommel, both of us have always felt the urge to see, first hand, where we came from. The problem is, other than my weekend trips to Mexico and Canada, neither of us have ever left the U.S. So, knowing that the BHW is the worldly place that it is, I figured some of you may have some good advice for me. Here's the plan: I have already talked to her boss and agreed upon letting me 'kidnap' her from work on whichever day I choose. We take the necessary flights from Indiana to Paris, where I will drop her jaw with the three carat diamond that this humble gal has never thought she deserved. Then we proceed to have the European adventure that we've both always dreamed of. From Paris, to Heidenheim, to London. Afterwards, we come home, have kids, grow old, and die together. However, this last step depends on the quality of my semen.. Sorry guys, I smoke a lot of green. Lol anyone want a review copy? Money is not quite an issue. Given, I do consider myself wealthy as sh*t, I don't have a ton of money to blow (most of which went towards the ring). So I'm looking for tips and tricks to make our travels affordable and pleasant. I know that a lot of you reside in the very places we are going to, so give me the advice that locals would give. Hell, tell me about your aunt's bed and breakfast. At least then I'd know that my money is going to someone whom is worthy. Any advice is appreciated and welcomed. P.S. W130SN, I absolutely insist on getting you drunk when we're in London. I owe you that, at the very least my friend.
