VACATION STYLE - ROME

Rome was such an amazing, beautiful experience. It was so very hot; nothing I'm not use to, but it was a different kind of heat and I didn't mind it one bit. We visited all the sites on our list, ate absolutely delicious food and just allowed ourselves to roam the streets with no destination in mind. We got lost, we walked around in circles, relaxed on the Spanish Steps, visited the infamous Trevi Fountain, had delicious ice cream, pizza, pasta and an array of deserts, that I am now working off at the gym, but it was all worth it. 

Visiting the Vatican, Sistine chapel and St. Peter's Basilica and Square was one of those experiences I would never be able to explain. The art /graffiti lining the walls of the metro station was surreal, I was in total tourist mode, taking photos of everything!

Our best sit down meal, hands down was from a lovely little restaurant called Hostaria Dino & Tony! I am drooling thinking of the delicious meal we enjoyed there. No menus needed, just let them feed you, Italian style, you won't regret it!

The best thing about this trip, is that I got to experience it with an amazing, amazing, man the love of my life, and I am so excited for our many other adventures. 

Stay tuned for the rest of my European tour.

VACATION STYLE - PARIS

 Paris, France was the third stop on my vacation. Paris holds a very special place in my heart because it has been on my bucket list since I was a child and I have my great grandma to thank for the wanderlust that I am. As a child, I would sit and talk to her for hours about places she traveled and my excitement to visit the same places. She never visited France but it was the one place she and I talked most about. I was so happy to walk the streets and visit the sights I dreamed of.
Paris is breathtaking, filled with tourist but beautiful. From the moment we landed I was in my element, it was almost like the city was welcoming me, the weather was perfect! It rain a bit on our second day there but I loved it, I felt like I got a little bit of everything. We walked up the Champs-Élysées, ate delicious pastries and food, visited the sights, walked endlessly exploring the city and even walked 4 miles to get delicious Crepes that came highly recommended by a friend. It was worth the 4 miles walk.
The view from the Summit of the Eiffel Tower is amazing! I wish I could post all the amazing photos my husband and I took.

VACATION STYLE - LONDON

I absolutely love London, we took the train from Manchester to London and the entire train ride was mesmerizing! London is so beautiful, I was blown away by the character of the city; the busy streets, the breathtaking architecture, museums and the ever so beautiful churches. We did the big bus tour and we loved it, I swear we got off at every stop and explored! I should also add, since I am a big foodie and couldn't stop eating, every meal was hearty and delicious but chips aka french fries in England are out of this world, I felt like I was back in Idaho, they were not greasy and they were made with REAL potatoes, pure deliciousness.

The best part, was just walking around the city at night and taking it all in. I can't wait to go back.

VACATION STYLE - MANCHESTER

I am finally getting around to posting what I wore during my vacation. First stop, Manchester, UK. My husband and I are HUGE Manchester United supporters, so for his birthday last year one of his presents were tickets to "the Old Trafford Experience" which consisted of entry to the museum, a full tour of the stadium and lunch at the Red Cafe. Let me tell you, the tour did not disappoint. It was such a dream come true to visit Old Trafford and our guide Allan was so knowledgeable and he made the tour so wonderful. My husband could not stop talking about the experience, he was so excited. Next on the agenda, I have to get him tickets to go see a game :-)
