Cruising MSC with Kids!

Every week when we go to our local grocery store, there are vacation flyers always available. There are different trips through each grocery store – whether they are bus trips, two day weekend getaways, or short to long cruises. The kids have gotten so used to us grabbing one to look at, they started doing…

Gorga, Italy – I felt at home! <3

Since booking flights to Italy, there is one thing, and one thing alone I have wanted to do. Mount Vesuvius was exciting for sure, but today, today was nothing compared to that. Today, I have been waiting for for the last seventeen years! I was going to the small Italian city my Nonno is from.…

After a quick stop in Pompeii after leaving Mount Vesuvius, we decided to head to our hotel in Salerno. Driving in Salerno was just as crazy as it was driving in the city next to Mount Vesuvius. Our hotel advertised either free, or paid parking. Well, the free parking was a parking lot, but if…

Rome, Italy!

Rome DAY 1 Leaving Pisa, I was so excited! We were now heading to Rome! ROME!! Man I couldn’t wait! The drive was about two hours from Pisa, so easily do-able. We get to our hotel in great timing. We go to check in, ring the doorbell, and nothing. Alright, so we are ten minutes early,…
