Good Evening! As I prep for my trip of a lifetime... finding a good site to log my travels was a must! I hope this site is easy to navigate, read and POST!
June 12-21 - Germany, Switzerland and Italy! The first part of this trip will be business and the second half will be my boss/friend, Brenda and I playing tourist!!
Air and hotels have all been booked for weeks and now I have to review my closet and luggage to make sure I have what I need. I already have many lists created and edited many times over. Everyone I talk to and everything I read says ~ pack ONLY what you need. Not an easy task! Especially when it's both a business and a vacation built into one trip! But I'll try my best!
I have logged endless hours (just ask Tim... if he hears one more thing about this trip he will kill me!) doing research on the internet on hotels, day trips, and must-see spots. I've spent hours at the book store picking out travel books, reading and highlight the best of the best. But with all that done and said - I think the best thing for me to do is just go and enjoy what comes my way. I think it'll be useless to try to cram so many must-see's into such a short trip.
Saturday, June 12: Minneapolis to Zurich, Switzerland
Sunday - Tuesday: Catch a bus with the crew from Barix and head to Black Forest, Germany for Team Building!
Wednesday: Zurich Office and then hit the town!
Thursday: Lucerne, Switzerland
Friday: Fly to Florence, Italy
Saturday: Train to Rome
Hope we can fit everything into such a short trip! I'll be ready for vacation when I get home!
