You guys I am SO, SO, SO excited... I'm going to Italy! It's official. I booked my flight last week and I can't wait. This will be my very first trip to Europe and I seriously can't believe it. When one of my best girls first asked me about going to Italy this spring my initial response was, No... I can't go on a trip to Europe without my husband or my girls... that's impossible. But with my husbands encouragement and support I'm going. We fly into Venice and since we're only there a week total, we're going to stick to a few places in Northern Italy, but I seriously can't wait. We're visiting another friend from college who lives there with her family. I don't know if I'm more excited for Italy, or for reuniting with dear friends. The picture above is from a little part of Italy called Cinque Terre off the Mediterranean coast and I hear it's a must see. I couldn't agree more... I think we're going go!
Anything else you seasoned Italian travelers recommend in Venice or around those parts? We won't have time to do Rome, but what else? Also, any good travel tips for Europe in general? Insider information?
I just found this.... this is a screenshot from my Favorite Places and Spaces board on Pinterest. I have very few travel destinations on that board, but I pinned this pic a year ago and wrote those words below... I didn't even know this was Cinque Terra! The power of suggestion, the Universe, the Secret... call it what you will, but I think it worked!
