Michael and I are (finally) heading to Europe on Friday! We booked the award flights almost a year ago so I felt like this trip would never get here! But alas, here we are!
If you caught my Instagram Stories last night, you saw that I already packed my bag – I wanted to shoot a blog post for y’all of what I’m packing for our two week trip so it took a little planning ahead on my part. I’m sticking to traveling with only a carry-on (specifically, the bigger Away carry-on bag!). I’ll share everything that I’m bringing with me in next week’s Travel Tuesday post so stay tuned!
Now for the fun part, where we’re heading! We are leaving this Friday and will be traveling for 16 days throughout Europe! Our first stop is London, then Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, and last but not least, Amsterdam!
I’ve been to London and Paris before, but years ago. While I’m excited to visit all of these cities, I’m most excited for Amsterdam – It looks incredibly picturesque, and I can’t wait to take a boat cruise through all of the canals! I have a feeling that Berlin is going to be the sleeper city. I have no idea what to expect, but I’ve heard such amazing things.
We’re staying at Airbnbs in every city except for Berlin where we used SPG points to book a hotel. You can read my thoughts on using Airbnb while traveling abroad here (there’s also a code to receive $40 off your first stay in that post!).
If you have any “must see” or “must eat” places to recommend in any of these spots, definitely let me know in the comments below!
