A Trip Worth Sharing
January 20, 2012 § 1 Comment
I promised I would be better at updating everyone on my travels. So as a girl of my word, I will be sharing my most recent trip with you all so get ready!
For the last 15 days I have been exploring (and eating) my way through Barcelona, Rome and Tuscany with my new leather boots, Rick Steves ‘Italy’ travel book and camera in tow.
(talk about looking like a tourist…or should I say tourista)
God was so good to me and blessed me with amazing weather everywhere I ventured. I anticipated a little sun in Southern Europe but I did not expect two perfect weeks of clear skies and warm rays. Thank you Lord! I forgot what it felt like to wear just one or two layers. It’s going to take awhile to reacclimate to the Scandinavian cold.
Daily I ventured in exploration of gems these historical cities had to offer. Antoni Gaudí’s whimsical work in Barcelona, Ruins and Renaissance in Rome and quaint cobblestone streets throughout Tuscany, I attempted to scratch the surface of these magical places.
And of course, who can forget the food (and coffee)? I tasted my way through Spain and Italy thanks to tapas, sangrias, pizzas and cappuccinos.
In the coming week I will write a post on each of my three destinations, so check back soon for the full update!
But for now, enjoy a sneak peek:
