Today is our last full day of our trip. After waking up around 7:30 am, I walked to the supermarket and local bakery for some breakfast items. I went with sliced gouda, some meat, olives and orange juice, and stopped at the bakery for the croissants and of course, the lemon tarts. We took our time packing and loading up the car and got on the road around 11 am to Paris. I booked an airport hotel for tonight, as I thought it would be good to be close to the airport with our 7:30 am flight. Today was cloudy, but not rainy. Yesterday was definitely the worst day we had in terms of weather.
The drive back to Charles de Gaulle airport was pretty painless, as that was where we had to drop off the rental car
We wanted dinner in Paris to use up some of our Euros, and found a cute bistro a little bit away from the touristy area
Now, it's just a matter of finishing up some packing and setting our alarm for tomorrow. If all goes well and Turkish airlines doesn't majorly stink it up, we should all be home by tomorrow evening. I can't believe the trip is almost coming to an end. It feels like a month ago that we were in Amsterdam, yet it wasn't even a week ago. Being back will be nice, but also feel weird. There is always a bit of culture shock when returning home.
Thanks again for reading.
