Thursday Thoughts

There are a few different blog series I want to start, with the first being Thursday Thoughts. Content will range from recently read articles to new destinations. The main purpose of these is to get YOU to share your thoughts. We all have stories and feedback that can benefit someone else + I would love to hear from you!

Another Adventure

In February and March I traveled to Morocco, Spain (Barcelona), Canary Islands, Italy (Milan) and Massachusetts (Boston). There will be lots of posts coming on those incredible adventures, but for now I’m excited to announce the next trip. In two weeks I will be exploring Europe with one of my best friends, Holly!

Normally I travel solo or use a local company that offers private or small group tours. This time we are doing a Contiki tour, with a few free days before and after. Hopefully the group won’t be too large, but I’m optimistic we’ll meet some amazing new friends and have a blast.

So, where to? Italy (Rome & Florence), Switzerland (Swiss Alps), France (Paris) and England (London). While there are some activities scheduled through Contiki there is also free time and we want to be sure to make the most of it. For the free days in Paris and London we have already purchased (1) Skip the Line Eiffel Tower Tour with summit access, (2) Skip the Line entry on the London Eye, (3) Warner Bros. Studio Tour (The Making of Harry Potter).

Everything Europe. Go.

These locations will be new for us both, so although it’s important to do some of the big attractions it’s always nice to get away from the tourist stuff too. We have been doing a lot of research and planning (big thanks to my mom + wonderful travel agent) but I want to get your thoughts…

What are must do things? Any advice/suggestions? Have you been on a Contiki tour? Maybe you’re in love with one of these cities in particular. I’m open, share away! Thank you in advance.
