When in Rome . . . . (and Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain, and France)


Go big or go home.

We figured we should probably take one last big trip before meager dental school lifestyle begins in September, and before our baby factory opens in 20____.
We leave this Friday for a 12 day Western European Cruise. We have both never been overseas so it should be great. Kind of a poor picture above, but we visit the following ports:
BARCELONA, SPAIN
MARSEILLE, FRANCE
FLORENCE/PISA (LIVORNO), ITALY
ROME (CIVITAVECCHIA), ITALY
CAPRI/NAPLES, ITALY
MYKONOS, GREECE
ISTANBUL, TURKEY TURKEY
EPHESUS (KUSADASI), TURKEY
ATHENS (PIRAEUS), GREECE
VENICE, ITALY
Let us know if you have been to any of these ports, and what we should be sure to hit while there.
Bon Voyage.

i've been to a couple places on that list. save your shopping for turkey! you can get tons of knock off purses, suveniers, wraps--there are a number of big bazaars or markets. you'll be ready to leave by the end because you'll be so sick of people peddaling you crap and "cutting you deals" but it's still fun. be sure to bargain! they will ALL drop prices. (also, be leery of gypsies/pickpockets at all the places you're going--not to scare you.) what an awesome trip it's going to be--and great timing! have a blast, can't wait to see pics.

Have so much fun! Don't worry too much about trying to see everything - just relax and enjoy your time while you're there. That, and take lots and lots of pictures. That's the best advice I can give. We'll be looking forward to hearing about it when we see you in Utah.

Turkish Delight?! Wasn't that a staple in your diet while you were on your mission to Narnia? Good times!
