Europe 2012: Shrewsbury

Next up on our England adventure was the event that inspired the trip — our friend Sara’s wedding in Shrewsbury! We all knew that the wedding was going to be a total highlight of our trip.  But I think none of us had any idea how much we would...

Europe 2012: London

Next up on the European adventure was, in the words of Joey from Friends — “London, baby!!!” And better than that, after traveling solo for the past 11 days, I was SO excited that arriving in London meant finally being reunited with my friends!!! For anyone who missed my original Europe...

Europe 2012: Barcelona

Ok, three weeks later, I’m finally getting my pictures up from the second half of my trip.  Better late than never! Barcelona was a total highlight of my trip.  My 3 days there were pretty much 100% spontaneous, due to pretty much zero advanced planning.  But I seemed to luck...

Europe 2012: Marseilles/Provence

For our last full day with the Costa Pacifica, we were all elated to spend some time in France.  Our ship docked in the port of Marseilles, but then I hopped on a bus with some friends for the “A Day In The Heart Of Provence” excursion. We first visited...

Europe 2012: Savona

Our fourth stop with the Costa Pacifica was the small town of Savona.  Clearly, it was a bit of a cloudy day.  And everyone seemed a little tired after Rome, so we chose to stay near the ship and just explore the town right next to the port.  (Can...

Europe 2012: Palermo/Sicily

I want to preface this by saying that word made it to our ship about the devastating news from Connecticut yesterday afternoon.  And my heart aches for each of those precious families and friends who lost loved ones.  From the one quick glance I had at Facebook, it is...

Europe 2012: Day At Sea

Today was one of the most relaxing days I’ve had in a long time.  We spent the day on the ship “at sea” en route to the port of Palmero (Sicily).  And oh, what a wonderful place to spend a day.  From meeting new friends, to trying to eek out some...

Hey friends!  As I just posted on Gimme Some Oven, I arrived in Europe today!!!  I am going to be spending the next 3.5 weeks here traveling around Spain, France, Italy and England, and would love for you to join along as I photo journal the trip. Now that...
