We are off on our trip of a lifetime!
I am excited yet a little sad because we are leaving our baby Scout. She has not been well lately and I feel bad about leaving her with the cat/house sitter when she is not well. But I am a bad mother and am still doing it. Luckily, our house/cat sitter rocks and I know she will take care of our Scoutie.
I have always wanted to go to Europe and, honestly, I never through I would get there. Luckily, we did not take a trip in December so we saved that money and other money to be able to afford the trip. It is sort of my 50th birthday gift a year earlier but I will take. Because by the time I turn 50 next year, I will be so depressed that I might not want to travel.
One of the things on my bucket list has been to see the Eiffel Tower and I cannot believe I might fulfill that dream. The rest of the trip is icing on the cake. I have always wanted to see London. I am excited about seeing Buckingham Palace and Big Ben. We are also going to the theatre to see Warhorse. That was Tom;s idea because he is such a theatre geek. I just go along.
I would much rather see Abbey Road or the Sherlock Holmes Museum because I like cheesy and strange. I also want to have High Tea because if I go to London and not have High Tea, I should just shoot myself.
Spain was Tom's idea. But I always wanted to have tapas in Spain. Plus, my family on my dad's side was Spanish so I am heading back to the Motherland. The great thing about London and Spain is that I do not
have to learn a whole new language. France is dicier. I learned a little French but just enough to get me food, bathrooms and that's about it.
Make sure you are following me on Facebook or Twitter and keep coming back because I am probably going to be posting pictures throughout the trip. WOO!!
