Preparing for adventure!
It is a little hard to believe that we have less than a month before our trip to Europe. Excitement with a dash of panic is the prevailing emotion at the moment. Last minute lists, shopping and preparation errand-running are all happening as we speak. A popular topic of conversation is the art of packing. What size suitcase should I use? What items should be in my carryon or my checked bag? How does a woman pack for 15 days of European travel in a bag light enough to lug around and small enough to fit in those tiny cars. Another dilema is shoes. How much valuable packing space am I willing to surrender to shoes and what should their primary purpose be fashion or comfort. This subject is particularly troublesome for mama. Apparently, unlike we Americans, Europeans are not having a love affair with sneakers and mama is worried about whether she should opt for european fashion or give in to the comfort her feet will need and wear her beloved sneaks. I say wear what will feel best to you 'cause lets face it, everybody over there will know that we are from "out of town" and they won't need to look at our feet to figure that out.
