Europe in less than a week!

Today I packed for Europe!
We leave next Tuesday.  I know I packed a week early, but I want to enjoy Christmas and everything about the season and not worry about it.
Plus, it made me REALLY excited!

We are headed to London first, then taking the train to Paris for 2 days.  Highlight while there:  Tchaikovsky ballet/opera:  Oneguine by John Cranko here at the Palais Garnier: (anyone been?)

Then, back to London for some New Year's Eve action here:

Followed by hanging out with friends, then something from my bucket list:  seeing Les Miserables in London.  And I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited about the Jean Valjean replacement.  I was very sad to see Alfie Boe go, but thrilled to hear that the person who played Enjolras in the 25th anniversary performance (Ramin Karminloo) is the new Valjean.  Love him and his voice!  Like I have a crush on his voice. (far right)

Then after that, we catch a flight to Malaga and we are going to visit friends from Spain and then meet up with my parents and sister (who arrived home from her mission in Paraguay today!) and basically HAVE THE TIME OF OUR LIVES!

I'm just so excited.
If any of you have been and have tips/advice/must do/sees---let me know please!
