Check out this exciting post from my sexy friend Ms. Scarlet about her upcoming trip to Italy. And don’t forget to check out her blog before she heads out ~ you wouldn’t want to miss her.
I’m so excited to be planning a trip to Italy later this year with my best girlfriend. We have wanted to go on a vacation together outside of the states (we’ve vacationed in the Caribbean several times already) for years and finally decided to take the plunge this year! While we have both visited Europe before; neither of us have spent much time in Italy. We found a tour that covers much of the area and allows us to stay in some gorgeous villas and homes; with guides and small groups along the way.
My desk is covered in maps and guide books by Rick Steves. I am interested in learning more about wine and wine making so we have scheduled several winery tours and visits. I have a feeling I’m going to be bringing a lot of new wines home to Florida! We are also hoping to find a day spa that includes the Roman baths so we can spoil and pamper ourselves for an entire day……..or more! I’ve always been happy to spend money on vacations and experiences rather than on jewelry and fine things. Memories are more valuable to me than any possession could ever be.
We will also be visiting the Amalfi Coast; home to the rich and famous! The coasts of Italy are so colorful, so vibrant and full of life and energy. I am going to get lost in the architecture, the food and the people. I just know I am going to return from this nearly three week vacation feeling rejuvenated and so alive!
