I didn't fall off the face of the earth. Really!
Jason and I celebrated 15 years of marriage
by hitting some of the most romantic places on
earth. Other than Jason getting his Ipod stolen
and me getting the flu, it was as romantic as we
had hoped. Here are my top three experiences:
We opted for a tour through Rome on Vespa's!
Our adorable Italian guides showed up at our
hotel ready to go. We enjoyed 4 hours of 1 on 1
time with them...just the 4 of us. They were
both life-long locals and they truly spoiled us with
their personal tour of Rome. My driver, Antonio,
even set up Jason and I for a romantic lunch
at his friends restaurant afterwards. Now, you can't
get better service than that! It was AWESOME!!!
crazy Roman streets. Drivers are crazy there!
That is one place I would never want to rent a car.
Everyone drives tiny cars or Vespa's...and now I
know why! Antonio was driving the cutest 1957
Vespa that was in mint condition. Fun! Fun! Fun!
We took a tour of the Southern Coast of Italy.
Capri, Italy is officially my favorite place on earth!
It is beautiful!!! One of the biggest tourist attractions
is a place called the Blue Grotto. Only 30% of the
people that come to see it actually get to. It is a
small cave off the Mediterranean Sea and you have
to lay down in a small row boat to enter...which
means the tides and sea must cooperate. I'm not
exaggerating when I say that I almost got my
nose scraped off when we entered the cave. That
opening is small! Once inside this pitch black cave,
this is what you get to experience:The water literally glows from underneath.
It is the most beautiful teal blue you can imagine.
Summer was mad that I didn't bottle up some of it
for her, yet I don't think it would glow in a bottle! :0)
This one is a no-brainer. Of course the Eiffel
Tower (and Paris, in general) are in my top 3!
We had lunch IN the Eiffel Tower...which was
delicious! What an experience. All in all,
we are very spoiled and had a wonderful time!
which is supposed to assure my return
someday. Kids, pack your bags!
Mommy wants to go back!!!
