Hi everyone! The FIFA World Cup is being held in Russia next year, and I thought I would share the process I went though to get tickets. I felt a bit anxious throughout the whole thing. What if tickets were released, and then accommodation and flights went through the roof? What if I got accommodation,… Read More "How the hell do you plan for the FIFA World Cup?!"
Here it was - our final day on the Dionis. Matt and I had to back up for one more night of partying. The struggle was real. We sailed into Split, docked, and started to explore the town. I must say; our hearts weren't in it. Matt had started getting a head cold and I… Read More "Sail Croatia – Split"
We had another swim stop on the way to Pucisca, where I swam, but there was no way I was jumping off the boat again. Never again. Once we were in Pucisca the sun came out. Pucisca was dazzling.

There was about 30 of us in total. Matt and I were in one of four rooms above sea level,… Read More "Sailing Croatia – Hvar & Mljet"
Do not catch this ferry.
Florence was jam packed full of tourists! Our hotel was just around the corner from the Duomo, so that was the first place on our list. We waded through the crowds, and in typical Italian style, the overwhelming size of the cathedral was breath taking. It towered over the nearby buildings and was pristine white,… Read More "Exploring Europe – Florence"

O.M.G. Cinque Terre is so beautiful. It's like a dream. Staying at Monterosso al Mare as our home base, the first thing to do was to grab a couple of beers and go check out the water. It was glorious after a day of travelling. Cinque Terre, Italy [caption id="attachment_2276" align="aligncenter"… Read More "Exploring Europe – Cinque Terre"
