    A Few Hours in Murano & Burano

    So you may have read my tales of Venice last week, and how I wasn’t totally a fan, but I didn’t share my absolute favorite part of our time there…visiting Burano! If I’m being honest, Burano was my only reason for excitement when I found the cruise itinerary with Venice. I knew this would take a chunk out of our day on the main island, but I needed to see those colorful houses. On our water bus journey, we needed to travel to Murano in order to buy a ticket for a different water bus and make our way to Burano. I was even excited about seeing Murano. I had…

    A Day In Venice, Italy

      I’m only a few posts away from finishing our honeymoon recaps, but excited to get a little further into special details about some of the places we went with more posts! This week, I planned on talking about my favorite stop along our cruise, but here I am with our least favorite stop. I wanted to save the best for last, and instead of leaving off on a note of a place we didn’t enjoy very much, I will save those goodies for next week. At first glance, I was really excited to be going to Venice, Italy. I mean who wouldn’t be? It’s one of the most popular…

  • A Beautiful Beach Day Messina, Italy

    **This post was scheduled for Monday, and never posted then was deleted, so it is a few days late! Hopefully I remembered everything I originally wanted to say. This also means there are 2 posts now coming today! ** We started our cruise from Civitavecchia in Italy, and sailed overnight into Messina. We were still sailing when we woke up the next day, so we took some time to explore the beautiful ship. It was my first cruise, and Dave’s second. We were not disappointed when it came to amenities on the boat, we easily could have stayed another 2 weeks by the end! We arrived in the afternoon on…

    Adventures In Rome, Italy | Part II

    Last week I shared the first day of our honeymoon in Rome, Italy and now I’m excited to share the rest of our time in this absolutely captivating city. After a great start to sightseeing as soon we we arrived, we did head to bed a little early in order to wake up as soon as the sun was rising the following day. We had heard that the lines get pretty long to see the colosseum, and we wanted to see as much as we could that day.     We got to the Colosseum about 20 minutes after it opened, and waited in line for around 20 minutes. It…

    Exploring Rome, Italy And All It’s Wonder

    I am finally sitting down at my desk and starting the series about our honeymoon! I planned on leaving this until the end of my wedding Wednesday posts, but I don’t want to wait any longer to share about this amazing experience. I have big plans to turn start with recaps of each beautiful location, and then slowly create a city guide for each location. I want to share information about the location, things to do, places to stay, where to stay and general tips we found out about each place. But the best place to start is with a recap of our first few days! Several weeks ago I…

  • 24 Hours In Rome, Italy

    I have been home from Europe for almost 2 months and I have yet to write a full post on our honeymoon! I promise, more of those details are coming soon. As I mentioned two weeks ago, I have so many ideas up my sleeve, it is so hard to choose just a few topics each week. While I am not diving into our honeymoon just yet, I do have a Europe themed post today! I have noticed several people mentioning an upcoming trip to Rome (jealous!), and I want to share some of my favorite locations. The best part is you can do all of these in just one…
