You know what I love about Europe? The cheap transportation to and from one neighboring country to another. As our housesit in Nottingham was winding down, Chris and I thought long and hard about where to go next during our two weeks we had open before our next housesit in the south of France. Actually, we didn’t think too hard. Our one rule is that we avoid backtracking as much as possible, so looking at the map, our options were Paris for two weeks or Amsterdam for 1 week followed by Paris for another week. A quick Skyscanner search later, we booked flights for $51 and some change. That price is equivalent to 4 curry meals in London! Score.
