Late last month we booked our plane tickets to Europe. And then I was on the road on and off for a couple weeks and I did nothing in relation to EuroTrip. This past weekend I sat down and looked at hotels in Rome again but let me tell you, overwhelming.
I think it's just the overall unfamilarity. What part of the city is convenient to the things we want to do? What part is safe? What's a 3 star hotel like in Italy? What's the exchange rate today? What does this imperfectly translated sentence on the website actually mean? Like I said, overwhelming.
In true Type A fashion, I made a plan. Each month I'll book our lodging in one city. And in a few months when that's all done, I'll tackle the train tickets. And then it will be time to go and all the big things will be done, stress-free like.
I kinda cheated this month. As in I took the easy way out and booked a hotel that I had already done all the research for. But hey - it counts.
Hotel Weisses Kreuz. Interesting things worth knowing about our hotel...
- It began operation in 1465
- Mozart stayed here with his old man in 1769
- In 1945, after the fall of the Nazis, American Major Eliot set up shop here
- Breakfast is included :)
