Are we ACTUALLY going?

In October I remember making the decision that I wanted to finally realize a dream and go to Europe. It's amazing that you can want to do something for so long, but not really believe it can happen. One day you wake up and realize that you DO actually have the means. Now the date of departure is 27 days away! The amount of information rolling around in my head seems more overwhelming now than the prospect of planning this major trip was in October when I knew nothing. So as this is our first blog post, here's the run down.
Casey and I are leaving April 2nd from Seattle at 4:30pm for London. I can't believe we are going to be in London! We are then going to be backpacking around Europe until the 28th. Within that time we'll be in England, Ireland, France, Switzerland, and Italy. All our major travel is finally planned and more importantly, paid for. We are planning on couch surfing for most of the trip and staying in hostels where we need to. So many little things you have to have! Backpacks, money belts, passports, shoes, Eurail passes, reservations, flights (pant, pant) whew! Thankfully we finally have it all.
As the planning comes together we can start think about the really fun things! I'm excited to learn about different people and cultures. We really don't know what to expect to learn and gain from this trip, but I hope that we are deeply impacted.
