And... We're Back

We have returned from two wonderful weeks in Italy and Germany!

Don't worry, I'll be posting lots of the 700 pictures that I took as well as travel tips, travel stories, and travel budget tips and more in the coming weeks. But here's a quick preview picture from the top of the Duomo in Florence to tide you over...


Even though we had a fabulous time, we're definitely glad to be in the good ol' US of A. It's funny how traveling can make you appreciate your home.

On the loooong the plane ride home we put together a list of the things we missed most about the USA...
Our cell phones. Easy access to wifi and Internet. The English language. Honest people. Normal electricity. Consistent air conditioning. Super markets. Water. Ice. Good salads. Dollars. Mexican food. Paper towels. Stores/restaurants being open all day every day.

And of course we also missed sweet Judah cat and well as our own home and comfy bed.

What do you miss from home when you travel?

I haven't done any fun traveling lately, but a few years ago I went to England for work and when I got back I was so happy to have a COLD Diet Coke and then I ate my weight in chips and salsa. I guess I really missed chips and salsa too!

Glad you're home safe, can't wait to see the rest of the photos!

I loved the list of things you missed the most...especially ICE. It's amazing how difficult it is to get an ice cold drink in Europe. Welcome back! Check out my new newlywed blog at http://southernfriedlives.blogspot.com
