Dreaming of Italy

Oh how I love Italy! It’s been way too many years since I spent time traveling throughout Italy during college after I finished by study abroad time in Greece. A return trip is definitely something that I have my eye on. Rome, Tuscany, Florence, Lake Como, Pisa, Sicily, the Amalfi Coast, the Vatican, Cinque Terre, Venice, Milan, Positano… I certainly have wanderlust for endless destinations within the stunning and diverse landscape of Italy. When I was in Italy in 2008, we landed in Milan & then spent time in Venice, Pisa, Cinque Terre, the Vatican, and Rome. Perfection!! I can’t believe my inaugural trip to Italy didn’t include Florence, but there’s always next time, right?! I can’t wait to get back someday soon to sample the best pizza, pasta, wine, and gelato that Italy has to offer, as well as to take in the breathtaking vistas, the incredible history, and the charming towns and cities of this great country that I adore.

What’s on your travel bucket list?

European Wanderlust

Just a few pretty places in Europe I would love to visit! Traveling is one of my passions, though I must admit that I haven’t traveled outside of the US since living in Washington, DC after college. That simply must change soon! I studied abroad in Greece in college (more on that here), and that was probably the best experience of my life. I am working to prioritize traveling abroad into the coming years, as it’s so fun, fulfilling, and brings me so much sheer joy. All of those weddings seem to have gotten in the way since graduating from college, though that’s not a bad thing! As they say, you have three things in life: time, money, and energy. At most every stage of your life, you typically have two of the three, which make traveling abroad easy to do. When I was younger and in college, I had the time and the energy… but not so much money. And now I have the money and the energy, but the time is harder to come by. And someday, I’ll have the time and the money, but not the energy. But that doesn’t have to be true! I want to prioritize my money and my time and my energy so that I can embark upon these adventures, see more of the world and God’s creation, and expand my knowledge. I have such a thirst for traveling, and I’m hoping to really make those dreams happen.. soon!
