Is there some unwritten, or possibly written, rule that says that you have to start documenting your trip on the first day of the trip? Well if there is, I say that is a stupid rule. In fact, I claim that my trip starts now, two days before it actually does, on day -2.
So basically, what have I done to get ready for the trip? Have I packed? Do I have everything planned out? Am I ready to go? In short, no. I have done a few things, though.
- I have taken a large amount of dollars and turned them into a smaller amount of Euros.
- I have made sure I know where my passport is.
- I have printed out the train tickets for the train journeys between Brussels and Paris and Brussels and Amsterdam.
That’s about it. So as is probably pretty obvious, I have a fair amount left to do. And I’m busy tonight, so I guess this will all get done tomorrow night. Right.
I do know a basic schedule of the day to day activities that will be happening while I’m there.
Friday: Work half day. Go to airport. Fly to Chicago. Fly to Belgium.
Saturday: Arrive in Belgium. Look at things around Brussels. Probably sleep.
Sunday: More looking at things around Brussels.
Thursday: Bruges (Brugge), Ghent (Gent), Soccer game
Sunday: Fly to Chicago. Fly to St. Louis. Probably a lot of sleep.
So there you go. The basic itinerary.
