We're going to EUROPE!!!


Yes, we've decided to take another vacation before we have any kiddos.

As of right now, we're planning a 10-12 day vacation and we're thinking it will be the end of July or early August. Until we get vacation time worked out with both our jobs, a specific date won't be set.

Our itinerary includes:
Dublin, Ireland
London, UK
Paris, France
Interlaken, Switzerland
Berlin, Germany
and.....possibly Amsterdam.

I am still in the planning stages. Yes, it sounds like a lot of countries in few days, but we're up for the challenge! We're planning two days in Dublin, London, Paris and Berlin and possibly one day in Interlaken and Amsterdam.

I found a great deal on 15 day Eurail train pass so we can travel AS MUCH as we want in these countries! It makes the cost of the trip much more affordable.

If anyone has any advice or tips on traveling in these countries (or in general), let me know!!

Ooooh! What fun. I sit around watching Rick Steven's Travel Europe shows on PBS. Saves $ and jet lag. Also I can snack and wear my pajamas. And, apparently at least, in a few months I can look at your (several thousand) photos and feel like I really went. Sort of.

I will ask my sister what places you should definitely not miss while in Berlin. I recommend Prague if you can as it is the most beautiful.

I just stumbled across your blog. Yes, travel while you are young! Although we traveled a lot with small children, and that can be done, too.

When traveling, remember to remove any limits on your debit card. We recently went to England and forgot to remove the $150 a day limit on our debit card (we usually keep that limit so that if we lose our card, nobody can take more than $150 per day until we get the problem fixed). Anyway, we forgot to remove the limit before we went overseas and had a hard time getting all the money we needed every day, although it was sitting in the bank at home. Make sure you will have access to your money. (Ha-ha, I have to type in "suffer" for word-verification). But, maybe you know about this -- we had not been to Europe since the days of debit cards being common.
