Just a quickie post before we leave. My family and I are off to Ireland and Italy this morning. Our plane leaves in a few hours and I’m giddy with excitement.
My husband and I are trying to adjust our sleeping habits as best we can so I’m up at 3am making cinnamon rolls while squeezing in sets of jumping jacks to keep me awake. We’ll see if this works out.
I can’t tell you how WEIRD it is to not pack my trusty Bank of America credit card (long since shredded) to accompany me! We are funding this trip totally by CASH. When I come home, I won’t be dreading seeing my mailman! Yay!
So what are the final numbers for the trip?
Two and a half weeks, two countries, two multi-day tours, airfare, and hotel came out to…$1,800 per person. It’s not my best work but the darn open jaw airfare messed up the budget!
I will try my best to post along the way, my brother is taking his iPad, but don’t rely on it. I’ve scheduled posts to appear while I’m gone but if something terrible happens – like a nuclear war, a catastrophic natural disaster, or they renew America’s Got Talent for another season – and I’m posting about making cookies and eating bon bons, give me until I get home to respond.
See you at the end of October!
