We’re getting so excited about our upcoming vagabonding experience around Europe. We just bit the bullet and bought our airline tickets last night. We fly from Seattle on July 7th and return to Seattle on February 15th – just in time for the Olympics in Vancouver. Seven and a half months living out of a backpack – should be a memorable experience!! Emphasis on memorable – there’ll be no souvenirs! 😉
Our first hotel is in Amsterdam – it’s trendy and most importantly cheap. It’s called the Qbic – okay – truth be told, I was wooed by the multi-colored lighting options. We’re trying out the welcomerewards “stay 10 nights and get one night free” deal with Hotels.com – depending upon how we book in the future, it could really pay off for us – they limit you to 10 free nights in a year so that’s my goal. 😉
It’s really starting to become more real. I’m excited and scared all at once. Trying to nail down all of the things we need to take with us (but not too much)… ah…balance….
