Getting Ready for Europe :)

I am current in the midst of some last minute packing of my 15 day solo trip to Europe. I've traveled before alone, but this is my first time making a journey across the Atlantic, and I'm SUPER ANXIOUS

My stops will include

  • London
  • Paris
  • Venice
  • Rome
  • Palermo
At first, I didn't intend to go to as many places, but being that I am a teacher and get a good amount of time in the summer off, I figured, why not? With a TON of planning, and a bit of saving, I knew I could make it work.

So many people ask me how I can afford to travel, and I promise to cover that in a future post. And by future, I mean tonight,hopefully :)

The other first for me, is that this is my first trip without having a traditional suitcase. I've decided to only take a backpack (and purse), in which I'll be carrying all of my belongings. I purchased the TLS Mother Lode Weekender Convertible from eBags

I did my research and this seemed like the best thing for me. I also bought some packing cubes to help make everything condensed. Once I've officially gotten everything packed, I will upload a video (pray for me, haven't done that before and this is new to me) of how I got everything in. Until then, keep me in your prayers for this EPIC journey I'm about to embark on.

Ciao
