#1 Son leaves for Europe tomorrow. I took a trip to Europe when I was 17 with my friend Cathleen. We backpacked around and visited 5 countries. We had a Let's Go Europe book that helped us find hostels, restaurants and fun activities. I bought the latest Let's Go for #1 Son. He hasn't had a chance to look at it yet. I also found a neck wallet for his passport and I bought him some organizer packing cubes for his socks and underwear. I wonder if he'll use those. I wish I could go to Europe with #1 Son. But this is not to be. He's going off for a month and I'll stay behind. I hope this won't be too tough on #1 Son. I hope he'll be able to cope.
