Work is kicking my butt this week, and next week will be even busier, so sometimes I just get excited to have 9 whole days off to do nothing but eat food, drink wine, and explore with my husband. I would also be lying if I said I haven't considered starting to outfit plan and pull out the ol' suitcase. I'm making myself wait... until this weekend, at least.
I do have this little stash of things I've been picking up here and there to get ready for our trip. I thought I'd go over the important items in case anyone else if planning a big trip as well! Also, if I forget anything here I'm leaning on y'all to remind me!
|Tide. Cards. Neck Stash. Adapter. TSA-Approved Locks. Memory Foam Neck Pillow. Umbrella.|
Notebook: While we're traveling in between cities, I'm planning to write down which restaurants we loved and any other little details that might escape me 50 years from now when I'm telling our grandbabies all about our trip!
Diffuser: I know I can't bring my hair dryer, so this weird little attachment is going to (hopefully) take the place of my normal diffuser. Curly hair girls will know what I'm talking about! Wish me luck that my hair doesn't become a total beast over there.
Between our iPad, the deck of cards, and my notebook, I figured those would help us pass the time on the train!
Not pictured: hand sanitzer and a Document Holder. I picked up a small plastic document holder from the Target dollar section and its perfect for holding our Passports, train tickets, and hopefully keeping our entry tickets to attractions safe because I love holding onto those!
I should clarify that the nerdy neck stash is for my husband. We don't want to take any chances with the pickpockets.
Also, it's been a total pain in the ass trying to figure out which plug adapters will work in Italy versus France. My sister-in-law gave us hers for Italy, so we got a second one with multiple options just in case the other doesn't work in Paris.
So for those of you who have been to Europe, what am I missing? Besides the obvious things like passports, toothpaste, underwear, etc.
