- Wedding: September 2016
Hey Bees!! I am in my mid twenties, American, and I’ve never been out of the country, excepting Mexico and Canada. I’ve never even been to Hawaii (hence, literally my first trip overseas). I’ve been trying to plan a trip to UK/Europe since I was eighteen, and something has always got in the way until now. Long story short, I booked a ticket, and I’M GOING!!! One of my best friends and I will be gone for a little over three weeks this summer, and I’m in the midst of trying to plan everything. It is overwhelming! There is so much I’ve dreamed of doing, and I know that we will not even be able to graze the surface.
This is sounding a bit aimless, because I am so excited!!!! Basically, I am wondering if anyone has ever planned a trip like this on a budget? We are flying into Dublin, and want to go to London, France, and Italy before making our way back to Dublin for our return flight. Any tips for cool things to see or do? Things that aren’t worth it? Budget saving tips? Anything? Where do I go from here?
I am completely in the dark. I know that to some people the idea of international travel is no big deal, but to me it is. No one in my immediate family has ever taken a trip like this. I don’t even have a passport! I have applied for one, though. At least I’ve got that handled. Anyways, any helpful info or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
(And since this is weddingbee, I have to take this opportunity to brag about my excellent SO, who finally convinced me to go. He wants me to able to have this experience, and he has been so encouraging and supportive. How am this lucky?)
