Wow! I’ve been so busy planning my next big trip that I haven’t written in a while! The plans are coming along, but there is still a lot to do. This will be my most ambitious trip yet! I plan to visit 10 countries in two and a half weeks. Most of the trip will be new places/experiences for me.
I know for many of you this is no big deal, but one of the new experiences will be packing light. I’ve always been one to travel with a checked bag that weighed 49.9 lbs as well as a carry on. This time I plan to only bring a carry on and personal item. The idea of dragging 80 lbs of luggage everywhere I go scares me more than not having something to wear. I look forward to the challenge and promise I will not post “How to Pack 97 Outfits in Your Carry-On.” I’ve been looking for tips & tricks online and some of them are just ridiculous. I’m sorry, but adding earrings does not count as a whole new outfit! haha
Another adventure I am tackling on this trip is how to make the most of my 16 hour layover in London. I had to make an overnight layover somewhere on my way back and I’m so happy I could find one someplace fun! I went to London a few years ago, but it was a very, very quick trip. I’m not sure what I want to see or do yet, but I’m leaning toward the London Eye. I imagine it’s beautiful at night! What would you do if you only had a few hours in London?
