I'll be checking this site several times a day. So excited for you. You're living one of the dreams we all share. EUROPE !!!! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. Soak it up. Savor it. Tell us all about it when you get home. We will live it through you. Will be praying for you, knees, skin, elbows, etc. And to think you'll be seeing one of those places I just drolled over several months ago from a video.
If you need prayer -- send an SOS via this. But you're gonna have an awesome time.
