there are only seven days a week and someday isn't one of them

I've always had a pretty severe case of wanderlust. When I was in high school, I spent more time than I would like to admit researching the best times to go to Thailand even though I had never so much as step foot in a Thai restaurant. I was also one of the only kids on school trips to not get homesick, and, when I was in college, one of my favorite things to do was to look up apartments in all the dreamy cities where I could move. When I actually made it to Thailand a few years ago, I cried real tears when I discovered how close we were to Cambodia, but realized we had no way to fit it into our schedule. I still have Siem Reap dreams.

So, you can imagine my excitement to tell you that Tuesday we leave for a week in Italy followed by a week in Greece! I've been counting down the days for months now. I'm so excited to drink wine and eat olives in the Cinque Terre (I don't even like olives!) and soak up the views of the caldera in Santorini. I'm going to try my hardest to check in a few times while we're gone and share some pictures, but if it's rather quiet on here it's because I'm busy absorbing Italian and Greek culture (or I haven't found a working internet connection). And if for some reason it's silent on here longer than two weeks, it's because I got distracted by Turkey or Hungary or swept up by the South of France!

Only joking. I don't have THAT many vacation days!

  1. Oh you're going to have so much fun! Back in the day I traveled the Cinque Terre. Absolutely amazing! It's where I fell in love with Gnocchi and Pesto and Limoncello! My favorite town was Riomaggiore. So quaint and the people were delightful! I also was blessed and was able to travel to Santorini - awesomeness fo sho! Safe Travels!

  2. Wanderlust... Story of my life! Have fun girl... Look forward to reading about your adventures and seeing all the amazing photos that will tell the story!
