the Europe trip...

A topic completely off the subject of building our house...

...tonight we're off to Dubai!!!

Our 5 week Europe adventure starts with a 24hr stop over in Dubai, before flying out to Budapest, via Vienna. Here we're boarding an APT river boat and cruising through Slovakia, Austria and Germany arriving in Amsterdam.

From Amsterdam we bus down to Paris, arriving on August 2nd (Erin's Mum's birthday) - and are meeting up with Erin's parents! 12 months since Erin's mum's battle with breast cancer started. So this stop will be a very emotional one!

After Paris we head to the UK on the Eurostar train, and hire a car then drive to Newbury, where friends Ash and Vicky are getting married on August 7th!

After spending some time celebrating with Ash and Vicky, we head to Bristol to catch a flight down to Barcelona to catch up with more friends Ev and Katy, fellow Melbournian's who have based themselves in London for a few years.

From Barcelona we travel to Milan for 24hrs of window shopping! Then fly south to Rome.

Our last 4 days will be spent meeting up with Erin's folks again in London before returning home to Melbourne... and settling our land and starting our build!!!
