Ciao, good morning world! I’m so excited to begin my travel blog and share my passion for traveling the world with everyone! My husband and I will soon be enjoying a week in Italy in mid-June…it’s our first trip to Europe together (He recently returned home from deployment and got to visit Germany on the way home), but it’s our second trip out of country. For our honeymoon in 2013, we chilled in Jamaica, the country of “no worries mon,” but I know that a European vaca will be very different from anything Caribbean. We’re spending 5 nights in the Renaissance city of Florence and 3 nights in Rome. This passion to travel the world just kinda sprung on me all of a sudden because I didn’t always feel this way…I guess it started after I officially entered the work place and discovered that the 40 hour work week of slaving away and 30 min lunch breaks isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. If I’m going to have to work like this for the rest of my life, I might as well find someway to enjoy life, right? For me, travelling seems to be the only way to catch a break from the hustle & bustle of the busy American lifestyle. A vacation doesn’t have to always be a trip out of the country like a big trip to Italy like we are doing, but it can be a little weekend getaway or just visiting a local place you’ve never been. Through this blog, I hope I can inspire someone to get out there and see what the world has to offer; discover something more than the 100 mi radius around your house. My husband and I set a goal to travel abroad with one big trip a year before we settle down too much, have kids, etc. This year I picked Italy…people dream about pasta and wine and the rolling Tuscan countryside…and WE are actually going there! It still seems surreal. Other places on our list include Germany, England, France, Scotland, Ireland, Spain, St. Lucia, and Tahiti. On this blog, I’ll be sharing my trips with you and offering advice as I learn it, which will most likely be by trial and error……but hey, that’s the fun in it!
Stay tuned for posts on Florence and Rome!
