If I've seemed distracted for the past week or two, it's because I have been.
Last week, my sweet, darling (seriously, he's da best) Levi surprised me with a TRIP TO EUROPE as an anniversary (and birthday, and Christmas, and Valentine's Day) gift ! I've never been to Europe, but I've been dreaming about it for what feels like forever. I was actually supposed to study abroad in Austria the summer after my sophomore year at UGA, but my family had some troubles arise due to the downturn of the economy and I had to cancel my trip. I knew that it was for the best, but I was devastated. I still remember Levi holding me while I sobbed. He promised me that we would go. One day.
After lots of saving, one day is here. The day he told me that I could start planning, I started researching and decided that next spring would be the perfect time to jet set across the pond. So much time to plan ahead! I can research my little heart out and save up for the next year to have lots of spending money. Hooray!
Or, not. In true Levi fashion, he meant that we were going to Europe THIS spring. As in, the next 30-60 days. CUE FRANTIC RESEARCHING NOW.
So yes, we leave May 7th (!!!!). Which gives me exactly 43 days to map out an entire itinerary, book places to stay, and plan out my entire wardrobe. I've been trying to learn to be more spontaneous, and this is definitely the ultimate test. Challenge accepted.
Stop by tomorrow and I'll map out our route and which cities we'll be exploring!
Have you ever been to Europe? Any tips for this first timer?
