Trip Report Preparing for our European Family Trip

Jump to last reply

In a couple of days we will be off to London and Italy. Traveling with my husband (DH) and 2 children (10 & 13) DD and DS. We are off on an adventure of 18 days with many places to see. For the kids it is their first time away from the US. Both of the adults have been there before.
It was a bit stressful the start as DD had a diagnose of Lyme disease 3 weeks ago, but luckily we got her on meds and we got a clear to fly and be ok (cross fingers).
We will depart on the 23rd on the red eye to London our first stop.
I cannot wait.
We have decided to pack 4 21" carry-ons and we are all taking an additional back pack for our purchases. This will make traveling thru the airports and trains easier and faster and DH will appreciate not having to lift heavy luggages.
Packing: we are all taking 3 pairs of shorts, 8 shirts (tshirts), 1 pair of dressier pants with 3 dressier shirts, 2 pairs of shoes and flip flops, 1 bathing suit, pjs and undies for 10 days, to minimize laundry. Packing all toiletries mini since they will not allow the big ones and trying not to forget the essentials.
Off we go! I will try to post every day as we enter in this awesome adventure.
