Where in the World is Jana??

Posted May 9, 2012 by Jana in About Me / 3 Comments

Hi guys! I bet you’re wondering why things have been quieter around the blog and on Twitter. Some of you may have already known this, but I’m on vacation in Europe! I’ve spent the last two weeks on a transatlantic cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to Tenerife, Canary Islands; to Palma De Mallorca, Spain; to Barcelona, Spain; to Provence (Toulon), France; to Livorno (Pisa) Italy; ending in Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy. It was divine. After Rome, we went to Siena and Venice. This morning, I left Venice, Italy and took a train to Milan to see the Duomo and this awesome mall with gorgeous architecture, called Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. After our jaunt in Milan, we took another train to Lake Como, and a hydrofoil to Bellagio. We’re staying in a gorgeous hotel with a balcony overlooking the lake. It’s just me and my mom, and you better believe that we’re eating lots, shopping lots, looking at tons of art and architecture, trying to speak Italian, and burning through our Kindle batteries like you wouldn’t believe. I got so much reading done on my balcony on the cruise, and am going to get even more done as I spend the next two and a half weeks traveling by train to Interlakken, Switzerland; Paris, France; Ghent and Bruges, Belgium; Rotterdam, Delft, Gouda, and Amsterdam, Netherlands. I’ll be back soon, but until then I have some reviews and other posts scheduled so you don’t miss me too much. We’ll see if I have more time to check in here, but since I only have my phone, and reliable wi-fi is hard to come by, I might not be able to post much until I’m home. Look for my trip updates on Twitter, though, and I’ll post pics for you when I get back to The States! :)

  1. My jelly meter just went through the roof, Jana! That sounds like a dream trip and I hope you’re thoroughly enjoying yourself. I think I might have to try and convince my mom to 1. Get over her travel fears and 2. Do SOMETHING like this. Amazing. : )

  2. Your trip sounds AMAZING. I knew you were going, but I didn’t know how many places you’d be hitting up! I definitely want to read all about it!
