We're so excited to have finally booked tickets for our dream vacation this Summer - 5 weeks in Europe!
Tyler and I have been running through logistics, weighing location options and pretty much fantasizing about a trip to Europe for what seems like forever. So, when the final mouse-click sealed the deal on our plans for this June I felt the greatest sense of relief followed by a giant flood of excited anticipation.
We'll be tasting, drinking, swimming, and adventuring our way through Europe (and Iceland) for roughly 5 weeks. Our itinerary took awhile to nail down. I had a bit of an issue narrowing down destinations - really, how are you supposed you choose?! But, after much research we settled on: Greece, Coastal Italy, Spain, Berlin and France. It's awesome that traveling with Iceland Air allows you to do a 5 day stopover in Iceland. If you've been following the blog for awhile, you'll know that Iceland has been on my bucket list a very long time. As a bonus, we'll be there when there is sun almost 24hours a day - perfect for fitting a lot of adventure into a little time.
So now what? Since we're going to be traveling during a pretty busy time of year, we're trying to book Airbnbs for the trip now. As a spontaneous (read: indecisive) traveler, it's a little frustrating to decide it all in advance. But I'm sure I'll be pleased when we're not scrambling to find a place to lay our heads at the last minute. And who knows, if mid-trip we want to leave our predetermined path for a few days and rent somewhere else - there's nothing to stop us from doing it.
If you have any recommendations or tips I'd love to hear them. Both Tyler and I have been to Europe in the past, but we're a little rusty and I always like to hear about what other people have learned & loved while abroad.
