Welcome to The Traveling Laurel!
This is my first blog post, and I’m feeling very out of my element. I am a seasoned traveler but a travel writer-not.
Back in 2010 when my husband and I made our first trip to Europe, it was a little intimidating for me. I think for my hubby too. The Army assigned him to a post in Germany back in the 80’s, so… that was awhile ago.
Fast forward to 2018, we are so captivated with Europe; the vacation destination is always somewhere European. Lately, it’s more like “where in Italy are we going this year”?
Weather is weather, no matter the mood outside, goose bumps or sweat, we go when we can go!
Our itineraries usually include, a castle, cathedral or basilica, a roman archeological site, or it might be a palace built by a monarchy. Regardless of the architectural marvel, its construction was determined by a passionate people. Therefore, it never disappoints.
We may be feeling minuscule standing in front of the spectacular Duomo in Florence, or the gothic Old Town Square in Prague, but there’s always a history to hear and read about. Even the priceless art chronicles Europe’s past.
A short excursion for me in the spring, Milan and Lake Como, (work related) no complaints here! Later, with my best friend, who is also my husband, together we will discover Portugal.
I hope you’ll return for those details!
