Barring any new ash cloud return, it looks like our upcoming trip is a go. We are taking a few pre-cautions.
  • We are bringing more money.
  • We will know where the nearest banks are just in case we need to access more cash.
  • We are looking up alternate accommodations should our stay end up longer.
  • We are looking up train transport to other cities should we need to get re-routed.
  • We are bringing all chargers for all devices.
  • We will be travelling with a laptop.
  • We will have extra photocopies of our passports.
  • We will have oversea toll free numbers to our credit card companies.
  • We will know where the Canadian Embassy is.
  • We will know the number to our travel insurance support line.
  • We've learned from current events that airlines are using Facebook and Twitter as a tool to help rebook passengers...really amazing...this age we are living.

Anything else you'd add to the list?


  1. Wow. If there IS another ash cloud, I think you & D are going to be the only two to actually get out of Europe! That's a really comprehensive list - everyone should travel with it. Enjoy yourselves and I hope there are no problems! :)

  2. You have a great list there. I can't think of anything else to add... Have a wonderful time!!!

  3. Thanks Northern Living Allowance and Sandra for your votes of confidence! I hope we'll not be tested on it but we'll do our best if we are.
