Bye, Auf wiedersehen and au revoir - I'm leaving tomorrow!!! Thanks for all your suggestions!

Dear Fodor's friends...

This is it - we leave tomorrow morning for Lauterbrunnen, Salzburg, the French countryside and and Paris...3 weeks for me and my 2 12 year olds, and two weeks for DH and 17 year old son! I've learned so much from all of you since I became a regular poster in September.

I have my Travel with Minor Letter, my International Driver's Permit, my train passes, hiking itineraries (well, maybe gentle walks ), list of places where I can obtain my Museum Pass and am armed with all that I have learned from all of you. I may have made a few mistakes along the way, but I'm not looking back and am ready (with 24" suitcase and large Zip-Lock bags). How did I ever travel without all of you?! Thanks so much for all your wise advice and the time it took to write it up!

A bientot! See you on the flip side!

I'll look for you on the hiking trails bd! Wouldn't that be a riot?!

swandav - OK I'm on notice for that trip report, although I'm not as eloquent as many here.

I might actually fit everything into that 25" suitcase! \/

I have to ask you, how did you choose your screen name? My first name begins with a K, and Wren is my middle name. Inquiring minds want to know!!!

Hey wren - I had wanted to use YOUR name, but it was taken. My mom used to call me Wren - nickname for Karen, so I just added the K and voila...Kwren!

I have finished packing and my suitcase weighs 31 pounds. Room for souvenirs!

Now some time for some last-minute reading here. Don't want to miss anything! Thanks for the good wishes.
