Capri, Italy - Day 11

The ride from Sorrento to Capri was only about 45 minutes on the jetfoil. We arrived in the afternoon and had a few hours to spend on the island. If you don't know Capri is a very mountainous island off the coast of Southern Italy and it can be pretty interesting to get around.

After leaving Pompeii we continued South along the coast to Sorrento which is about another hour and 20 minutes and is part of the Amalfi coast.

Pompeii, Italy - Day 11

If you follow me on Instagram you already know that since I was a young kid I’ve always been fascinated with ancient history and volcanoes. Arriving in Naples was a bucket list checked off for me. To be able to see Vesuvius with my own eyes and walk around Pompeii was a dream come true and the best part is sharing these memories with Megan which will never forget.

Barcelona, Spain - Day 9

Arriving in Barcelona we had a full day scheduled and couldn't wait to get started. We only had a day and we wanted to see as much as possible so instead of booking with the cruise our excursion we decided to roll the dice and go on another Viator tour to Montserrat, Park Güell, and La Sagrada Familia.

Palma de Mallorca, Spain - Day 8

Unfortunately, we didn't get to utilize our time like we would have liked to while visiting Palma. We knew we had limited time and we wanted to a change of pace so we elected to take a tour of the Caves of Hams which are very popular. What we didn't know was that to reach the caves we would have to drive across the entire island.

Cannes, France - Day 7

Arriving in Cannes, France was exciting as it was the first time we had ever tendered to shore and it was a brand new country to explore. We had booked a tour through Viator to for a half-day in Eze and Monaco, but we weren't able to get everything confirmed prior to arriving so we decided it was a good time to just take it easy and explore Cannes on our own.

Rome, Italy - Day 5

Our final day in Rome started out pretty early with a tour through the Vatican. It would have been quite a walk from where our hotel was so we were lucky to find a cab at the Pantheon that early in the morning. The tour we booked was through Viator and our guide Igor was great!

We started our morning off just like the locals with a brisk mile walk to the Piazza del Popolo and a quick stop at a Caffè Ripetta for a pastry and a cappuccino. This little cafe was awesome and so friendly. We would highly recommend stopping here if you get a chance.

After an amazing first day in Rome our second day we headed up to Florence for the day by train.

I finished my second week of Crossfit last Friday around 7:15 PM.  Unlike the previous days, this day was different.  I was worn out, extremely sore and quite beat up and loved every minute of it.  I learned a few things this day that I will not be repeating though.

I have been looking around for a dog for a few month’s now, but I wanted to make sure I made the right decision before jumping into something.
