Hello everyone and welcome to my travel blog for my 2015 summer European adventure! This time, I will be travelling with my aunt (and godmother) Patti. This trip is a milestone of sorts for me because it will be my tenth visit to Europe (hence the title of this post). But for Patti, it will be her first time so I am very excited to introduce her to some of my favorite spots.
We leave tomorrow (May 21) and return on June 1. We will spend three nights each in Paris, France; Luzern, Switzerland; and Genoa, Italy. We then will spend our final night in Milan, Italy. We have a lot planned but also have made sure to leave some flexibility in the schedule to do whatever we feel like at any given time. The weather forecast looks pretty good with highs generally around 70 predicted for most days. There will probably be some rain, but I bought a new spring jacket/raincoat specifically for the occasion so I feel prepared. As usual, I am going carry-on only! My bag actually feels pretty light compared to when I packed it for London and Dublin for two weeks in January. Packing spring clothes vs. winter clothes really makes a difference, not surprisingly! I have a lot of room for souvenirs.
As in the past, my goal is to blog each day, wi-fi connection permitting. All of our hotels except the one in Milan advertise free wi-fi so hopefully we will be pretty well-connected. I also bought a new bluetooth keyboard to use with my Ipad to make typing easier. It is a little heavy but hopefully the extra weight will be worth the ease of blogging. I found it really slow and cumbersome in January when I was blogging just with the Ipad's touch keyboard.
