I have not updated for days now. :( I have been busy planning for our summer trip to Europe. I just purchased our train tickets for the trip yesterday, Eurail has a promotion that will give one extra travel day if you get tickets by the end of this month. I chose the 10-day Eurail 5 country Select Pass (for Italy, Switzerland, France, Benelux(Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg count as one) and Germany). With the ongoing promotion, we have 11 travel days total (2 extra travel days if we decide to divert from our planned itinerary).
Since Tyler is 3 years old on the first day of our train travel, he can ride for free if sitting on a parent's lap. We opted to get him his own seat. He is big for his age so it will be uncomfortable for hubby and me if he does not have his own seat. We chose to travel First class all through out Europe. Since we will be spending a considerable amount of time on the trains, I think it will be worth the extra cost for comfort. I'd rather be comfortable with less money than be miserable with extra cash. :)
