Well, it's official. We're packing our bags and heading across the pond.
I mentioned previously that Chris and I were itching to get out of town. So, after browsing Groupon Getaways for hours trying to decide which destination we wanted to go on, we finally made our choice. A part of us just wanted to make it a quick trip and go somewhere close for the weekend- like to a cute lake resort in Wisconsin or Michigan. But then we were also wanting to go a bit further- perhaps somewhere abroad.
After a little budgeting and checking the prices of the packages Groupon offered, we decided to do both.
So, this weekend we're hopping in our car and heading to Green Lake, Wisconsin to relax at a cute lake resort and do Wisconsin-y things (like eat cheese and go cross country skiing, I presume.) I'm looking forward to getting out of the city and just relaxing for a weekend. Here's what I'm packing... snow boots and scarves are also coming along just in case.
It might not be this green at the Wisconsin resort just yet, but you get the idea.
And then two weeks from today we're boarding a plane to go to London and Dublin. Both trips are officially booked and we are set to go. I am so excited!
The booking process was so easy and seamless, I still kind of feel like it's not real. The flights and hotels in London and Dublin were all a part of the Groupon Getaways package, so everything was already done for us. I've never planned such a stress-free vacation before, it's pretty wonderful. We're staying right by Hyde Park in London and in the middle of the city in Dublin. The only thing we have to decide is what we actually want to do once we get there.
I've been to Europe a few times before, but never to London or Dublin so if you have any suggestions, please let me know! Chris is a museum kind of guy and I'm a pub kind of girl, so we are open to absolutely anything. Where should we eat? What should we drink? What should we see? What should we avoid? Tell me anything you know and I will be so grateful!
And most importantly, what should I pack for #mygroupongetaway?
