2012 has been off to a rocky start this year. The good news is it is only February, the snow is thawing, and I spy some sunshine outside my front door.
For my birthday (which is not until April 7th), Logan and I have decided to take a trip to Italy. We have been in France for 6 months now (wow!) and haven't ventured outside of the country. When given the choice of ANYWHERE in Europe, it was a toss up between Greece and Italy, but I landed on Italy. Now we are in the beginning stages of planning our trip- We are going to try to take a week off and see as much as we can.
We have narrowed it down to these places. We can probably only swing 3 of the 5.
I would absolutely LOVE to hear any advice you may have for us- overrated cities, hidden jewels, what to see, where to stay, what to eat, etc.
When I am having a hard time being over here so far away, its trips like these that help take my mind off the loneliness and feel very blessed to have something so cool to look forward to. Italian vineyards, gelato, and PIZZA. What could be a better birthday celebration? Anyone want to come over and join us? :) I know you are tempted....
