Wow, time has flown! We have done five of the nine trips that we planned for the first half of 2013 and now I’m in planning mode again for where to go the rest of the year. There are no more long weekends in Amsterdam from July to December so we have to be very careful (and smart) with how we spend our weekends vs. vacation days. At the moment the only thing that’s definite is going back to Italy—perhaps to Rome or to Tuscany—for the mandatory pasta and pizza carbo-loading to last us ’til 2014. (insert pig squeal sfx) Other than that, it’s a blank canvas for ideas so I’m pretty excited! I’m looking for inspiration—any suggestions?
