Trip Summary: Europe 2013 (Tons of Photos!)

I’ve been back in the US for just over a week now, and I’m finally making headway processing my photos (and my thoughts!) from our mother/daughter trip to Europe. I’m working on more detailed writeups, but for now I wanted to start sharing the awesomeness of our trip.

Let me know in the comments which city you’d like to hear more about first – I might not do it chronologically, so if you really want to hear more about one city in particular let me know!

  1. Wow that’s an intense trip! 🙂 When I was in Venice, I think I ate gelato after every meal.

  2. Good idea for a post to whet readers’ appetites. We’ll be going to Krakow and Wroclaw in mid-Sept, and will look forward to anything you do on either of these. Thanks in advance. ~James

  3. Just got a chance to catch up with your blog. Looks like you had an AMAZING time abroad! So happy for you! xx

  4. You certainly didn’t let any grass grow under you feet, you saw a lot. I’m curious…did you use one airline within Europe?

Let me know what you think!
