Give some first-timers your last minute tips!!!!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are leaving in about 10 days for our first Europe trip (and my first trip overseas)!!! I'm so excited but can't help feel underprepared/underinformed no mater how many of these forums I've read and how many times I keep going over my ever-growing mental checklist. lol

Nevertheless, I want to hear all the last-minute advice you "seasoned travelers" have. We will be visiting London, Paris and Barcelona.. I've researched the cheapest way to exchange our money (We'll be withdrawing pounds from Barclay, & euros from BNP ATMs as we bank at Bank of America.. Unless anyone knows of a cheaper way?), we've taken all the precautions for pickpockets and are clued up on the areas not to visit at night, I have a list of restaurants in the areas we'll be visiting, we'll be buying day passes for the tube and the metro, calculated all the time it will take to get to the train station/airport to go to the next city, learned that we need to get to the main attractions early in the morning (including buying theatre tickets from TKTS early in the morning). We've organized an open-jaw flight into London and out of Barcelona thanks to the wonderful advice from this forum... So lay it on me!! Any other advice for us Europe noobs???
