Going to Europe has always been a dream of mine, so now that Rose is studying abroad in Dublin, it’s a no-brainer that I’m going to go visit.

On May 29 I’m going to leave for a 2 week European vacation with her, and I’m ridiculously excited!! We’re not certain exactly what we’ll do yet, but here are my initial thoughts on the plan…

Saturday: Fly out of San Francisco.

Sunday – Tuesday: Ireland

I know Rose will show me around and give me a tour of Dublin, and we'll also go out at least one night there.

We’ll also go to the Cliffs of Moher...


I'll leave the Ireland itinerary mostly up to her - she knows what I'll like.

Wednesday – Monday: Italy

We'll fly - it's under $100 U.S.! We’ll probably visit 2 different cities. Right now we're thinking Venice and Rome.

Venice for the beauty...




Rome for the history...

Tuesday – Friday: Greece

Athens and Santorini, probably. We can either fly from Rome to Athens, or take a ferry between the two countries.

In Athens I want to visit the historic sites like the Acropolis and other ancient buildings. I love seeing history!

In Santorini I want to relax and take in the picture perfect Greek islands. I think it'll be the perfect end to this crazy, exciting trip!




Saturday – fly home :(

I'm sooo excited about this vacation! My sister is the best person to travel with too, both because she's just as excited as I am, and because we're best friends and never run out of things to talk about (I do mean NEVER).

I’m already disappointed that we have to limit ourselves to 2 weeks (I’d do 3 if I could get away with it. I have to save a few days of vacation time for my wedding, though!). I also am already certain that I’ll have to visit again in a few years to see Barcelona, Paris, London and Amsterdam! One trip just isn't enough!

I'm just going to try to take it all in, and enjoy every moment.
