In Full Planning Mode

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?
