Did I Mention . . . ?

I struggled for a while on what to title this post.  There were just too many good options with the likes of:




or, even the lamest one in the book would have applied here, 


However, I chose the elusive and mysterious option that made it seem like I have my emotions totally in control right now: "Did I mention . . . ?"

You're totally wondering what I may or may not have mentioned right now, aren't you? Good, that was the goal.  

I'll just cut to the chase: I'm off to Europe soon! Like as in four days from now soon. I cannot cannot cannot wait! 

I signed up for this trip back in October of 2012, so you better believe that I am beyond ready to jet off across the world.  

My 2.5 week tour has me traveling all over Italy, Greece and a touch of Turkey. Some of the highlights include: Venice, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Pompeii, Delphi, Athens, Mykonos, Crete & Santorini.  Whew! And that's not even everything!

I've been trying to get some posts scheduled so my blog isn't completely abandoned while I'm gone, but with all the other chaos that is going on, that may or may not happen ;) Just know that when I get back I will definitely have stories and pictures that I want to share coming out of my ears. 

If you want a little more info on my trip, you can check out posts that I had written for my old blog here, here & here.

*Sidenote: Guys, do you realize that I just posted two times just today? Looking at the archives, two post weeks are a rarity around here!

**Another sidenote: Yes, I did mention Europe here . . . sneaky, sneaky. 

***Yet another sidenote: This trip will allow me to cross off my third event from my 20 before 20 bucket list! Wooo! 

So, now you know! Have you ever traveled in Italy, Greece or Turkey? Any tips or tricks? Food suggestions? What not to do? Let me know! I need all the insight that I can get!

Well, I better get to packing.  Can't forget the toothbrush. Ciao! 


  1. Have a GREAT time!!! Are you going alone, with family, with a group...? I went to Switzerland and Italy for 2 weeks on a study abroad trip in college and it was amazing!

    1. Thank you so much!! I am going with a group from school. And wow, that sounds like so much fun! I would LOVE to visit Switzerland!

  2. DEFINITELY take a nap during the day - the locals all do it and for good reason! The tourists will head to bed around nine, and that means you can enjoy less crowds (not no crowds, but less is better!) and see some of the night life too!

    1. That's really smart! I'll definitely remember that. Thank you!


Let me know what you think!

I love love love love comments and will respond to all of them!
