Spilling the Beans...

As some of you guessed, we are going to Belgium. Hubby is going for work and all of us will stay for an extended period of time. I'm really geeked about it, but the packing is overwhelming to me right now. A good friend suggested I should pack as if I'm going for two weeks. Unfortunately, I bring too much even for two weeks. So, if you have words of wisdom, sock it to me.

My mother-in-law is in town until Saturday and I'm a bit under the weather, so here are a few pictures of the places Hubby's work will be taking us soon in lieu of a "real" post...

Antwerp, Belgium

Paris, France

Toledo, Spain
St. Petersburg, Russia

(Yes, I will be blogging so I can keep you posted while keeping my sanity.)

OMG OMG OMG! St. Petersburg? Toledo? HOLY COW! How incredible is THAT? When do you leave? I agree with your friend (almost) - take enough for two weeks, but have a place where you know you can mail order clothes/undies/etc. if you need them. Truly, there are laundry facilities world-wide. And for emergency handwashing, google "ricksteves, clothesline"

They are lifesavers.

I am so happy for you! Congrats on the big adventure - how long will you be gone?

I was jealous with Belgium, but you really have me going with your great, extensive trip. You will HAVE to blog lots and give us lots of pictures.

SO COOL! Awww man, I've only got 4 weeks of school left & you folks are leaving the country.

When is the big day? I'm really excited for your family - what an awesome opportunity. Of course I'll follow your adventure like a stalker. :0)

If your suitcases are REALLY heavy, don't peek inside, it'll just be me trying to stow away.

Happy packing!

Sounds fabulous!! Check out Blankenberge if you get a chance - it is one of my favorite places in Belgium.
