Insta European Vacation

Long time, no blog.



I am so sorry.

Vacation was lovely.
But catching up on real life.
Not so lovely.

I don't need a vacation from my vacation.

I need a vacation from my return from vacation.

The good news is...I have 5 trips to southern california (well one is to Vegas) through the end of November.

I am singlehandedly going to be keeping Southwest Airlines in business. DING!

Anyway, I'm back from Europe.
And besides uploading my pictures to my computer, I haven't even looked at them.
Which kinda makes me sad.

And I know it's making you sad too.
At this rate, please expect the Europe recap circa 2031.

But for now, the few Instas I was able to upload during my brief WiFi moments.

First off...leaving SFO.
As a kid, my mom always packed Hostess Donettes for airport breakfasts.
I guess Little Debbie will do.

Layover in Amsterdam. I LOVE this airport....
Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:
(That is a can sit and eat in)

Exhibit C:
(Which we did. Dutch apple pie and an almond tart)

Barcie-Pants. With Dad.
Accidentally forgot to say "con leche" when ordering dad his espresso discaffenato.
He was a good sport.

I did a drive by of the churros con chocolat.
They wouldn't let me eat them.

Monte Carlo, Monaco.
Insane beauty.
Insane wealth.
Yachts for miles.

Oh hey I drive a red Ferrari.
Oh, you do too?
Oh that guy does too?

Cafe with milk.
By the Trevi Fountain.
Best part of my day in Rome.
I could have sat there all day.

Lunch in Rome: Lasagna.
I wish I could have had 75 servings.
Yep, with vino too.

Followed by the best Tiramisu in Europe.
I know. Because I had a lot of Tiramisu in Europe.

And an espresso.
No milk.
Because I'm grown up like that.
Or they just didn't give me a choice.

I miss you.
Yes to all of it.

Modus Salad.
Variation on the greek salad.
Now, I am a girl who loves sun dried tomatoes.
Um, but these were the size of silver dollars.
Entire tomatoes.
A bit much.
But it looks pretty in the picture.

And finally...not an insta....but I snapped this pic on my cell phone...laying out by the Mediterranean Aegian Adriatic Ionian Sea (after I dipped my feet in the water).

And it was as lovely as it looks.

Despite being busy, I can't wait to share the real pics from my big girl camera.
But for now...I hope you enjoyed.

Linking up with Jeannett:
