(***Quick website update: I installed the LiveFyre comment system about 2 weeks ago. I loved the features, I loved the quick support, I loved the design and I especially loved the ability to tag friends and other bloggers in the comments. Because I consider my blog a bit of a sandbox — somewhere I can try out new tools, review them for my readers, etc., I was eager to hear your feedback. And I heard you, loud and clear. Until LiveFyre makes it easier to sign in with just a URL and name, I am disabling the tool. It’s too bad, because it’s pretty freaking cool — if you want to see it in action, check out Ryan’s post at No More Bacon.***)
This fall, Lucas and I are taking a second honeymoon of sorts…the trip of a lifetime, and something we’ve been saving for and planning for 5 years.
We’re going to:
- Brussels, Belgium
- Bruges, Belgium
- Paris, France
- Venice, Italy
- Florence, Italy
- Rome, Italy
It’s a 2-week trip, with most of the time being spent in Italy (three days in Belgium and just a day-stopover in Paris).
Now, when it comes to travel — this is the one area in my life where I prefer to give up control to Lucas. He is absolutely incredible at the details — from booking the transportation to making some daily itineraries and more.
But he’s asked me for a list of things I absolutely must see, or places we must go. Museums, restaurants, day trips, etc.
And I have no freaking idea what to tell him. It’s amazing that the more excited I get about the trip, the more anxious I get about choosing the “right” items for the itinerary.
So I’m hoping you can help. In those cities — what are the things we truly must do?
We’re willing to do some tourist-y stuff, although I’m not dying to go to every single museum and cathedral.By the way, I’ve been listening to an Italian 101 podcast every day (Let’s Speak Italian!) and it’s awesome. I speak great French and decent Spanish, but Italian is by far the hardest language I’ve tried to learn.
So far? Va bene. But I’m also bringing my iPhone, with translator app installed.
