  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

Exchange rates or not, I'm a jealous girl, I'll admit. Especially the wedding in Ireland part. When the next three weeks start to get you down, just think about that beautiful green country side, great music and boys with fabulously adorable accents. That'll help motivate you!!!

I know when I came back from my backpacking I wanted to burn the clothes I brought because I was so damn sick of them! I think the key is plenty of underwear and then approximately one outfit for each type of weather and lots of opportunities for layering.

Remember to send your bridesmaid's dress to Mary.

Honestly? Screw London - go to Amsterdam. You can stay there for much cheaper and get a Ryan Air flight for next to nothing to London.

On the plus side of those exchange rates, at least now you can use your Euros everywhere. It used to be such a pain in the damn ass to get your money converted as you went through each country.

Wow! What a nice way to unwind from the stress of school. Try not to worry too much about the exchange rate--enjoy yourself and know that this is a special treat for yourself. Hope you find a futon or two on your trip. Looking forward to viewing your many pics!
