It's official folks, we have less than a month left in Edinburgh and then we will be venturing off to travel around Europe before we head back to San Diego. Yes, we are still in shock. Until Christopher finishes his dissertation in a few weeks I don't think it will truly hit us. And when it does, you know we will be bawling like little babies because Edinburgh is one of the most amazing cities in the world and we are truly going to miss it.
So to cheer us up so we don't focus on our upcoming goodbyes, I decided I'd share with you a little about our travel plans! We leave in early September to travel to 8 different cities in Europe over the course of one month. We know it will be slightly jam-packed but we are so excited and can't wait for our upcoming adventures! (Also, to answer your question, yes, we are crazy)
We start off by flying to Berlin for a few days and then taking the train to Rome.
Then we'll pack our bags up and take the train north through Italy to Florence and Milan. (Fun fact: we'll be in Milan 2 days before fashion week! Kind of glad we won't be there during fashion week as I've heard it's packed!).
Then we'll hop on a plain and explore Barcelona and Madrid. We've seen lots of southern Spain so we're excited to finally set foot in northern Spain.
Once we've eaten our way through Spain, we'll jump on a plane and head to Paris for several days. Then on to London via train to catch our plane to America!
Once we set foot on American soil we'll be staying in DC for a few days with my lovely grandparents. We're hoping our little east coast stopover will help with the crazy jet lag we are sure to feel once we reach the west coast! Then sometime early October we'll hope our last plane trip landing in beautiful sunny amazingly awesome San Diego. Yes, after over one year away, we will finally be back in dear 'ole San Diego. We are so looking forward to seeing our family and friends and, frankly, we can't wait to stuff our faces with Mexican food!
