Welcome, and congratulations on your puppy!

I would plan on taking a puppy playpen and puppy pads - that way you can create a safe toilet space wherever you need to. At 8 weeks your puppy may still be protected by maternal antibodies, may be protected by vaccination or may not be protected at all, if the maternal antibodies inhibited the vaccination but have now worn off - this is the reason for giving a course of vaccinations and a booster at 1 year. A pen is also safer than relying on just a harness, and if you use pads you can ask the breeder to "anoint" one or two before you leave, to encourage the pup to pee.
