SO WORTH IT.

The passports have been procured, the hotel reservations have been made (& confirmed), I even changed our outgoing flight becuase I was worried we wouldn’t make our connection in Chicago (we now have a 3 hour layover), tax refunds have been received, and today I got my backpack from ebags. There was a moment of panic when I thought they sent me the wrong bag, but then I realized that I just wasn’t looking it at it thoroughly (the straps for the backpack were hidden). We have a cat sitter lined up to take care of the beast. A few more loose ends to tie before we leave, but all major things have been taken care of. I CAN NOT WAIT TO LEAVE.
2 months to go, almost have all of the money for lodging saved up. i am counting on our tax refunds to boost up our spending money. joe got his passport and i booked us 5 nights at the flying pig in good old amsterdam. i am thinking of staying in brussels for a night before we get to holland. now, to figure out how to get to and stay in, copenhagen!
Joe filed his passport application last week, so that should be in the mail momentarily. We also booked the first 5 nights in London at the Jesmond Dene Hotel. Next up: Amsterdam & Copenhagen hotel booking. Or maybe Belgium. It’s coming together …. can’t wait to go!!
alright, plane tickets bought, our next step is to have joe get his passport. i’ve already tentatively planned our itinerary and have been looking up hostels online. i anticipate by january everything will be set! the next thing left to do is GO!
So Joe and I have decided to travel to Europe next year for three weeks. Our destinations (for now) are London, Amsterdam, & Copenhagen. Copenhagen is one there b/c my old friend Stefan lives there & I want to visit him. They also seem to have a really great gay night life. So the first thing we need to do is get Joe his passport. I am currently on a search for cheap-o plane tickets.
