It has been a while since I last updated y’all on how the planning for Europe is coming together. To say the least – it is a lot of work! A few weeks ago, my other half, Max, and I spent the better part of a Sunday on booking housing and transportation as well as planning our itinerary. Now with our Europe adventure about 60 days away – the excitement is building!
We have decided to visit (mainly) London, Paris, Brussels, Berlin, Venice and Rome in our month of travels. Just today, we booked our tickets to ride to the Summit of the Eiffel Tower after sunset. I’m certain it will be absolutely invigorating to see Paris while (approximately) 900 feet (erm, 273 meters) in the air. If you ever intend on visiting Paris, book your Eiffel Tower tickets WELL in advance – as of today (over two months before we will be in Paris) the tickets for that time were practically sold out!
Aside from planning the what, how and where of the trip, I have also been spending a ridiculous amount of time research TSA rules. Maybe I have been living in the dark ages, but did you know that tweezers, nail clippers and even disposable razors are allowed in carry ons? I certainly did not. Silly me! In addition, I have been looking into how to best pack for a whole winter month in a single Carry On (might have a backpack or purse of some kind too). As scary as this sounds… the simple fact that I’ll be free of much of my stuff for an entire month is incredibly relieving. Later this week, I’ll explain more about stuff and why we should not let it take over our lives.

Overall, planning is going well 🙂 And I truly cannot wait!
