If you’re ever lucky enough to have the chance to go to Europe, take it. In September 2017, we made our first journey in a rapid blitz of France, Italy, and Spain. Like John Candy before us, we traveled by plane, train, and automobile and one-upped him by traveling by boat. Part land, part sea (7-day cruise), our journey spanned nearly 2 weeks and let us see Paris, Rome, Florence, Cannes, Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona, Pompeii, parts of the Amalfi Coast, and Venice. Like our intrepid wandering, our travelogues have a lot of territory to cover and a tendency to ramble, so settle in and follow along as we feast our way through some of Europe’s finest cities.
