Never in my wildest dreams would I think that I would be lucky enough to go the places I've gone and see the things I've seen, all in the course of doing a job that I love.
It's not running related, but it's 'water' related!
Here are a few of my favourite places...
|Cannes, France. We stopped here weekly during a Mediterranean itinerary.|
|We would grab a pain chocolate, café latté and browse the flower and farmer's market.|
|It smelled amazing, and it was fun to 'visit' the fresh fruits and vegetables (and sneak some back on the ship).|
|Some of our best espresso and cappuccino were from train stations in Italy.|
This is the train station in Livorno - I can still hear the clatter of the saucers on the marble countertops.
|We found this bakery in Pisa - I think we tried EVERYTHING.|
|The Panforte was a hands-down favourite.|
Dense and flavourful, it was everything a christmas fruitcake wishes it was.
|This is the El Glop restaurant in Barcelona, Spain.|
It's unassuming, tucked away in a little neighbourhood.
|But it must be something special, if the Boss has popped by...|
|Oh my. The Paella. Oh my.|
|Florence - incredible.|
|Why do I look surprised? We managed to climb all the way to the top of the Duomo in Florence.|
|What must have been the cheap seats in the Colosseum.|
|We spent our first wedding anniversary exploring Capri.|
Here's a hint - the Blue Grotto is a tourist trap.
|Sienna in Tuscany - some of the most breathtaking scenery...|
|We loved Europe, and especially Rome.|
I'm tossing a coin in Trevi Fountain so we'll be sure to come back.
|As amazing as Europe was, we were happy to come 'home' after 6 months.|
