We're going to Europe!
After considering the idea of going to Europe, C.C. and I decided this summer would be the perfect time to go for a backpacking trip through the different countries. Check out the travel tab up top, we'll be updating with our research, plans and tips for making the most of the time we're there.
Step 1: Make a plan
The first part of making our plan was to get a map. A big map. We went to CAA and asked them for travel resources and ended up leaving with a large map of Europe and various smaller maps of the countries we are considering visiting.
Not only does CAA/AAA have automobile coverage, but they also carry a wide range of material to make travel easier (travel gear, maps, etc.). Although we could have met with a travel agent, we decided that part of the fun was planning it on our own. C.C. has already decided that the shopping in Paris and Milan are a must so we'll definitely be hitting those cities.
Hope you'll keep reading our trip planning progress! And please share any travel tips or places that are a must-see.
