I bought the plane tickets today. I'll be gone from Monday July 2 to Thursday July 12. Yes, I'm aware it's only 10 days. My friend commented on how short of a trip it is, but I don't think so at all. My last trip to Europe was 10 days, and it changed my life.
Anyway, my mom and I have planned it all out: 3 days in London (since the first day is just flying), 3 days in Paris, and 3 days in Amsterdam. We're flying into London and flying out from Amsterdam. Guysguysguys, LONDON. I've been waiting 3 years to go to London, and my dream is finally coming true! And Paris! I've missed Paris so much! I've been listening to French chansons and Parisian accordion music for weeks, and the only movies I've watched lately are based in Paris (Midnight in Paris, Amelie, Ratatouille, Hugo).
I'm really excited to go Amsterdam as well. Amsterdam is the main reason why we cut Belgium out of our trip. We realized we wanted to see more of Amsterdam, because it's a stunning city. It's one of the oldest cities in Europe (and that's saying something!).
|Seriously, look at this beauty!|
Ahhhhh I can't believe this is actually happening. I'm officially going to Europe in 39 days!
I apologize for this obnoxious post, but I can barely contain my excitement and I've already annoyed my family with my happy dances, so I had to post it somewhere else.
...Now the issue is waiting 39 days. But that leaves plenty of time to plan! I shall go to the library tomorrow and check out guidebooks.
