Well, while the blog has been running on autopilot, I have been running around Europe for the last three weeks. That's right, I tricked you, but now I will spend the next week (or perhaps more) sharing with you all the fun, photos and wisdom I gained during this time in Italy and Spain. Everything went off without a hitch, and we woke up this morning in Madrid and will go to bed tonight in our Northern Virginia abode.
We had the trip of a lifetime, with outstanding views, food, history and hotels, but there is something marvelous about being back in the land of the free and the home of the brave, where the water and ice is free and plentiful and people know how to walk in public with an awareness of others around them (more on all that later).
Here's a little sneak peek from us in Venice...
For now, stay tuned as I take you through each of the eight cities we visited -- Rome, Florence, Venice, Barcelona, Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba y Madrid.
Good night, America! See you tomorrow.
