Awesome. You're going to have a great time exploring.

Here's a link to a site with some good, general travel tips:

If you haven't done so already, I would begin the passport application process soon. Sometimes, it can take a month or so to receive your passport, and that is if nothing goes wrong.

Also, I found travelers' checks not to be useful. ATM's are available at banks and in the airport, and most major credit/debit cards will work anywhere credit is accepted. I used a card for most expenditures, but I would suggest pulling out some cash at an ATM when you get there (or you could do it here before you leave - I believe they're on the Euro now). A passport/money belt is a nice thing to have, and brought me a little piece of mind.

Above all else, where comfortable shoes. With all the sightseeing that you will hopefully be doing, your feet will appreciate it.

Have a great trip!
