Next Monday, I am going on my first REAL vacation (other than a long weekend) in almost 10 years. Words can't express how excited and thankful I am to have this opportunity. Many of you know that my brother Andrew and sister-in-law Katie live in Naples, Italy. Andrew is a Lieutenant Commander in the Navy, and they moved to Naples last August for his job.
I am going to see them next week and absolutely cannot wait! I've been to Italy before (Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre, and Pisa), but I haven't been to this part of the country. We will spend most of our time seeing things around Italy (such as Pompeii) before heading to Sorrento and Capri (pictured above) for the weekend.
I am beyond thrilled to experience more of Italy: the sights, the food, and the drinks fill my every daydream. Most importantly, I am looking forward to spending time with Andrew and Katie. Since I don't get to see them often, this trip is incredibly special for me. I know we will make memories that will last a lifetime. And of course, I will post my pictures and stories when I get back. Ciao!
