Holiday Count Down

Our big European adventure is around the corner. In five days time Ian and I are finally taking our European holiday ... and without the little guy.

We're both very excited but I'm also a little nervous. I'm nervous about being away from my baby with sever allergies for so long. Yes of course this was all our choice. No one forced us to go on this holiday and we decided to go without him because Europe is our dream holiday, for mum (more so) and dad. 

Europe is our little reward from the sale of my property. Its a little present for ourselves for all those years of paying a mortgage before most people had a mortgage. It's our little splurge from our investment instead of blowing all our disposable income on things we could have purchased at the time.

We're flying into London first, meeting up with Miss S and Mr E. It will be pretty cool to see them after so many months. I think its best to say I need to get my liver ready for one big week in London. I'm also ready to do my part for the UK economy and do some serious shopping, considering I do all of my shopping online from UK sites. Afterwards we're off to Paris for a week. I'm glad we decided to stay in each country for a week so we can really enjoy the location and not feel rushed to do everything in a short period of time (although I still think a week is not long enough in all these places). In Paris we're even booked for a macaroon cooking class. After Paris we're off to Florence then Rome, Crete then finally Santorini. So technically I will be at Santorini in my 30's which is what I wanted to do for my 30th birthday. 

I can't wait to see all these beautiful places I've been lusting over for years and eat everything! Leading up to this holiday I was trying to work out as much as possible (probably more than I ever have in the past) so that my body is fit and bikini ready, on top of being able to eat everything. By the way my body is not bikini ready, I just said that.

Need to pack ... I don't know what to bring?
