We just returned from the cabin - we've spent so much time there this summer, it felt kind of strange to know that we won't be back there for a full month. It's been a great summer, but school is in session again and fall is in the air in Hackensack, so that means it's time for our next adventure -
On Monday evening we leave for London! We have our air and train tickets & hotel and apartment reservations. Now we need to get packed and get the last minute details ironed out. I hope to update this blog every couple of days in lieu of sending emails to everyone. We'll see how that goes. Please feel free to comment or email us while we are gone.
We will be traveling with my brother Dan and his wife Mickey. My sister Laura and her husband Tom will meet us in Rome for the rest of the trip, we'll return to their apartment in Toulouse for the last few days.
Here's our basic itinerary:
9/8 - evening flight from MSP direct to London, arriving in London 9/9 at about noon.
9/11 - fly from London to Rome
9/15 - Rome to Florence via the train
9/18 - Florence to Munich by overnight train
9/19 - Munich to Garmisch by car
9/23 - drive back to Munich (Oktoberfest!!)
9/25 - drive to Primstal to visit Ottmar, my grandfather's cousin (I think?!?) then to Luxembourg
9/26 - Luxembourg to Toulouse by train
9/30 - fly from Toulouse back to MSP via Amsterdam
