European Vacay!!!

So, I’ve decided to take my kids to Europe next summer. They’re 11, will be twelve when we go. We are definitely going to Italy and almost definitely Ireland...I’m thinking of adding a third country (or two)...I don’t want to overwhelm them as this will be their first trip out of the states. If we do add another country I’ll probably want to take them somewhere I haven’t been yet...but I’m not gonna list up everywhere I’ve been because that’s just ridiculous. So, TQC...where do you think I should take these little rascals?? In Italy and Ireland, and beyond...tell me where and why, I wanna know!!
It’s a big world...I’ve only seen some of it, and I’d like to see more. But more than that I’d like to encourage a love of traveling in my kids (realistically they have more time than me to see everything....please have at it!

Go to Work With a Fever?

I know I shouldn't because I'm contagious. But I've missed 2 days of work at a relatively new job now because I have what I think might be a stomach flu. I was able to get an appointment today with my doctor (finally - I couldn't go to urgent care because I couldn't afford it), and was planning to go after work but still have a low grade fever this morning and am not feeling good. I was hoping my fever would be gone as I was feeling better last night.

I've been at this job about 5 weeks including this one, though I've worked for the company 9 years. I don't have the leave to miss though because I'm in a new position. Advice?

Thank you all in advance.
