Europe Tickets Purchased!

27 Mar

Ahhh, at last! Last night, my husband and I booked our tickets to Europe. I’ve been stalking airline booking sites for weeks and weeks, and there was a sudden price drop to $1600-something per person, so I grabbed it. Prices for plane tickets change so often, it’s maddening. You never know if you’re getting the best deal, and you’re left wondering if you’d waited just one more week, could it have been cheaper? Who knows.

These were about $300 less than what I’d been seeing, so we saved $600 total. Cal says I can’t go on ticket sites ever again, so that I don’t get upset if I do see something cheaper. We’ll see if I manage…

We haven’t ironed out all of the details of our itinerary yet, as we’re working on figuring out the first few destinations and waiting for a few people to let us know if they’re going to meet up with us and where. So, here’s the information we DO know:

August 30: Leaving Brisbane
August 31: Arriving in Paris, spending a day or two.

Traveling to Germany, where we’ll be seeing the Middle Rhine River Valley, Heidelburg, Hohenzollern, Sigmaren, and Lichtenstein Castles, Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. Moving on to Italy, where we’ll be in Venice, Florence, and Rome.

September 19: Leaving Rome in the afternoon.
September 20: Arriving in Bangkok, Thailand at 2 p.m.; plane leaving at midnight. Possibly going into Bangkok to eat dinner, have a look around.
September 21: Arriving in Brisbane around noon.

Also, we found a relatively cheap (for the location) hotel in Paris that is mere blocks from the Eiffel Tower. I think we might book it soon!

I just wanted to post a quick update. I’ll be posting more and more about this as the months wear on, and will update with a full itinerary when we have it.
