“Our picnic dinner in the field next to our private Swiss cabin was so romantic!”
Couple: Bryan and Jennifer Pavin
Destinations: England, France, Switzerland, Germany, and Croatia
Dates: June 16- July 5, 2014
Why Go: Bryan grew up visiting Switzerland every summer with his family, and he wanted to share this with his bride. Jennifer had always wanted to go to Paris, and Bryan’s dream was to see the D-Day beaches in Normandy. Germany rounded out the trip – a little romance and beer for Jennifer, and history for Bryan.
Favorite Experience: Bryan was impressed with Normandy and England’s Upottery Airfield, Jennifer cherished a picnic dinner outside their Swiss cabin and relaxing at their beachfront resort in Croatia. Se also enjoyed swimming and kayaking.
Best Meal: Steak and frites at Le Ralis de l’Entrecote in Paris. “It was the most tender steak with an amazing pesto marinade,” Jennifer says, “Servers came around to refill our plates with steak and fries as quickly as we could eat them. After walking eight miles that afternoon, this dinner hit the spot – with a glass of red wine!”
