I did a lot of complaining last year. Especially last summer. When I was in my third trimester and couldn’t imagine leaving my house, forget a trip to the anywhere beyond the mailbox. Yeah, last year was a year of staying put.
Totally worth it, now. Now, that I can see this sweet smile. And, now that I can travel again. 😉
I’ve been remiss in sharing photos from my recent anniversary trip with my hubs. We celebrated 10 years of marriage on a nearly two week trip to Italy. It was fabulous. Except for the part where we left my camera in the back of a rental car somewhere between Tuscany and Rome. Boo.
We have tracked it down though, and it should be shipped back our way. Eventually… Fortunately, we took some photos with our iPhones that I can share until then.
We spent half of our trip in Tuscany, sipping on Prosecco and Chianti. Sleeping in. Eating lots. And just getting to know each other again. We stayed a few nights in Monte Argentario, a coastal area of Tuscany, then moved further inland and stayed in San Felice at a beautiful hotel. Love.
Jon and I realized after about three days of vacation that we had the chance to talk more than we had in years. And fortunately, we also realized that we still like each other. Win! Jon rented a bike and road the Tuscan hills during the mornings when I slept in, then we lazed poolside, visited vineyards, and explored the surrounding countryside.
The other half of the trip we spent pounding the pavement (or rather cobblestones) in Rome.
Although we still did our share of sipping on great wines and eating great food (um, hello truffles!), we also did a lot of sight-seeing. All of the ancient ruins and plenty of churches and art.
And there was that day that Jon made me ride a bike. Here we are at the start of our bike journey on the Appian Way. The things we do for love…
It was a blast, but I was ready to come home. I wanted to be near my babies.
But come this fall, I’ll be on an airplane again. Heading off to another great destination (more on that later), and with me? A travel rewards card. In addition to making extra copies of passports, and bringing a European outlet adapter another super-important thing to travel with (especially internationally) is a credit card like the Discover it Miles® card, which doesn’t charge foreign transaction fees.
As an introductory offer, Discover it Miles cardmembers will now receive double the amount of miles they’ve earned at the end of their first year – with no spending cap. That gives travelers using the Discover it Miles Card the opportunity to determine for themselves the amount of bonus miles they receive in that first year. Additional bonuses? No annual fee, and up to $30 credit for Wi-Fi expenses on flights!
Definitely worth checking out if you’ve gotten bit by a travel bug.
Do you have any fun trips planned? Where are you headed to?
