European Vacation part 1

Greg got the opportunity to go to a conference for Exxon in Cannes, France. So we decided to take the European vacation that we'd always talked about. While Greg attended his conference, I dropped Luke off at Grandma Gessel's house in Sandy, UT. Luke had so many fun people to play with, I'm pretty sure that he hardly noticed I was gone.










Since Greg's conference was in the South of France that's where we started. We went to Cannes and Nice then to Florence and Venice, Italy; Geneva, Switzerland to Lyon, France and finishing in Paris. The whole trip was a series of train voyages besides of course the long flights to and from the States.

Sarah, that trip looks so fun! Was this your first time back in Europe since the mission? France, Italy, and Switzerland! I'm trying hard, really hard, not to be envious.

This was our first trip back to Europe since the missions and we were super excited to return.

The real question is... did you find a succéss??

Sarah Gessel said...

Not in Geneva and that was sad since that was really the only reason I wanted to stop there. Greg knew that and it was disappointing that we didn't find succes there. We did, however, find them in Lyon, where I hadn't expected to see them. I was really happy and they were delicious but maybe not as good as the ones I remember.

Oh and we also ate kebabs like every other day on our trip. Greg had never tried them on his mission but we ate them in Italy and France. My favorite kebab place is still Star Kebab in Lyon.

that is freakin' awesome. Cannes is pretty high-society! I'd love to hear more in person. Let me know when you visit Utah again.

Talk about an awesome business trip! Too bad they don't send employees on family leave to conferences in Cannes. I love it there!
