Well! Now that we’ve been home for a couple of weeks, I guess I should probably finish blogging about this Italy trip, eh?? I was on SUCH a roll, too – posting every day! But we both picked up colds by the end of the trip (not COVID, thankfully!), so that really sapped my writing […]

It’s already Wednesday, which means we go home the day after tomorrow! And on top of that, we had to get up early again today because we’re off on another day trip (more on that later – we’re already on a train as I write this, though). But hey, that’s how our vacations often go, […]

Another day, another city. That’s the traveling life, eh? It’s now Tuesday morning and we’re in our hotel in Venice, after taking a high-speed train here from Rome yesterday. Since even the high-speed train takes four hours (Rome and Venice are quite a distance apart!), we didn’t have anything planned, aside from dinner, but I […]

Well, it’s another glorious morning here in sunny Rome! The morning temperature is fabulous, I see no clouds, and we’re about to head down for a final, delicious breakfast at our hotel before we make our way to the train station to head to Venice. As such, today will likely end up being a pretty […]

Another trip has started! Yes, that’s right – as you possibly saw in my last post, I’m currently in Rome with the husband and we’ve already had a full day here. Well, most of a day, I suppose, since we arrived mid-morning yesterday (Friday) and had afternoon plans we’d already booked. But I’m getting ahead […]

Oh hey, I’m at an airport again! And where am I heading? Well, it’s not much of a surprise if you’ve head the title of this post, but I’m going to Italy! Scott and I are currently awaiting our flight at the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport, from which we’ll be flying to NYC. From there, it’s […]

I’d like to start this post by saying thank you to those readers of my blog who crossed their fingers for good weather for us today. It helped! I’d also like to shame those people who didn’t cross their fingers because we definitely still got rained on. :p Despite that, today was still a great […]

Well, I think we made the most of our only full day in Florence! We had the day pretty well mapped out because we knew we were going to be going to a few different places in different areas of the city. Okay, so we may have also planned around the place we wanted to […]

Contrary to the last two “first days” we’ve had, our first day in Florence involved us going out and doing/seeing quite a bit! Of course, that’s largely because we really only have today and tomorrow to see the city due to a pre-planned day trip on Sunday (more on that later), so we wanted to […]
