I can't believe that it's almost travel time!
I have been quietly waiting for the time to come... Patiently waiting until I could shout my travel plans from the rooftops, and it's finally here! I have had a busy month, with weddings, cupcakes, trips, and moving, but now there are 5 more work days, and 9 more sleeps until I'm leaving, on a jet plane... (not that I'm counting, or anything!)
So far, the only plan that is set in stone is heading to London on August 9th. I'll arrive the morning of the 10th, and that is where my first adventure begins! I'm going to navigate the trains, since I am arriving during rush hour, and traffic will be atrocious. Don't worry Mom, I've got directions, and I'll let you know as soon as I arrive! :)
I'll be spending 8-10 weeks with Sarah, and her lovely family. Can't wait to meet Patrick, Bryony and the wee one that has yet to arrive! I'm looking forward to play dates, park time, and baking with Bryony... and I certainly won't turn down any cuddle time that I'm offered with a newborn!
After that, my plan is to visit a friend in Northern Ireland, and check out France, a little bit of Spain and the West side of Italy on my own (If you've been, please let me know your favorite little hidden gems to check out!! I need all the help I can get!) And then would like to join a Topdeck tour in Rome. Here is the link to their page if you want to check it out, it's a pretty cool tour!

Anyways! The next time you hear from me, I'll be just over seven thousand Kilometres from home, and ready for the adventure of a lifetime! Can't wait to share it with you with this blog, and in person when i return!
