Positano City Guide

I am so super excited to finally be sharing the last of the Italy City Guides from our honeymoon earlier this year. :) If you missed my first few guides, check them out now! Positano was probably our favorite of all the Italian places we visited. Everything about this place was magical. They have history, rich colors, delicious food and just about everything you need to enjoy your vacation. Take a look for yourself…

This was our first view of Positano as we rounded a corner. I think we both thought we were in a dream for a second. And then we realized this would be our home away from home for a few days. :) Continue reading

Rome City Guide

I’d say Rome is just about everything I imagined it to be. It’s magical, whimsical and colorful. To say it has history would be an understatement. It easily made its way to my favorite city list and I’d happily make a return trip anytime. My biggest piece of advice when visiting this city would just be to follow that old saying, “when in Rome!” and do everything you can do. Here are a few helpful tips, recommendations and things we especially loved about Rome! If you’d like to check out our other Italian City Guides, here’s one about Venice and one about Florence & Tuscany. Also, see how we packed for our Italy adventure in backpacks! Happy travels, friends. :)

Venice Guide

Venice, as my husband puts it, is unlike any other city. It’s incredibly unique with its rich colors, lack of cars, transportation only by boat or foot, abundance of bridges and rich history. We found Venice to be the perfect place to start our Italian honeymoon, because it’s in the northern part of Italy where our journey would begin and it was a surprisingly relaxing city.

Planning a Euro trip

Planning a trip can be daunting, especially when it’s a foreign country and somewhere you’ve never been. For me, planning trips combines just about everything I love to do. I caught a severe case of wanderlust a few years back when I started traveling as a kid and I’ve been adding to my travel bucket list ever since. Then I married someone who feels the same way I do about traveling. There never seems to be enough time or money to visit all the places we want to see, but we can certainly try!

My second time in Europe, I was in college and able to study abroad for the summer. This was the first major trip where I did a large portion of the planning and I was hooked. Through the experiences of family, friends and myself, I’ve learned a lot about how to plan an international (or domestic) trip. I thought I’d share all of these tips in a blog series so my fellow wanderlusters can make use of them too! There’s a lot of info here, but I thought it was all important to share. Enjoy! :) Continue reading
