I can hardly believe that my love and I are actually making this trip. Ever since the day I was born I have wanted to fly off to Europe. I feel as if my blood and bones ache to be back with my ancestors.
Garrett and I have been talking about making this trip for almost 2 years now. The day I started my job at Scentsy, I started saving all of my PTO and money to make this trip happen. And now... it's happening. And it's hard to even grasp that it is an actual reality.
So how did this all happen? And why so fast you ask? So lets back up a bit to Friday the 7th of February. Garrett had been prompting me to take time to go to a travel agency to start looking into this trip for August. So I went, with a skip in my step, and hope in my eyes.
I walked away infuriated 20 minutes later. The lady who helped me seemed less
than available to help the likes of me out. She practically laughed in my face when I told her my budget for two was $5,000. She was, needless to say, no help at all. This got my blood boiling, my competitive arms were up for the punch. So the next morning, before my love awoke, I had done hours of research on flights and times of year. Which to my surprise, I found flights cheaper than I had ever seen them before out of Boise this last year.
Rubbing his sleepy eyes away, Garrett lazily walked in the office room to a huge surprise.
"What do you think about flying to Europe next month for your birthday?!"
His eyes got big, "I was going to say we should go sledding today, but this is much better!"
For the rest of the day we planned away. Where we wanted to go, what we wanted to see. We had a total of 17 days to plan out. We decided our main stops were going to be London, Paris, and Rome. Three of many places I have dreamt of going to for so long. The rest will have to wait till later.
As of right now, we don't really have anything booked accept for the planes and a few hostels. It's going to be pretty amazing. I seriously cannot believe this is finally happening.
