A European Honeymoon
My husband and I just came back from our "honeymoon" which we planned on the spur of the moment and almost two years AFTER our nuptials. We planned a 14 day vacation via Eurail pass and airbnb.com through England (Eurostar), Belgium, France and Switzerland.
Our first challenge was packing light since we would be trainhopping and staying in a lot of B&B's. So we limited ourselves to a backpack. Mine weighed 16 pounds. I carried very little. 3 pairs of pants, 1 dress, 2 pairs socks, hiking shoes, black flats, a swimsuit, 8 tops, 2 scarves, 1 hat and 1 jacket. Storage bags that you roll and pack are the best inventions for travelers.
It was an AMAZING trip. A perfect trip. We planned it just right, fell off the grid, and embraced the European lifestyle with open arms. We can't wait to go back.
