So this week's topic is The Best Trip I've every taken! This is an easy decision but not an easy one to write about because we did so much on this trip! In 2010 my husband and I were thinking that kids were on the horizon for us. So we decided it was the right time to take what we refer to as "the trip of a lifetime." Now I really hope we can take more trips like this in our lifetime, and how awesome would it be to experience a trip like this with our boys!?
We booked a Mediterranean cruise and I immediately started preparing! I had a notebook with our itinerary, metro maps, train schedules, and even a pocket Italian book. With only one day in each port, we had to maximize our time!
We first flew into Barcelona where we spent 2 days exploring the city. Then our cruise went from Barcelona to Monaco/Nice, Pisa/Florence, Rome, Pompeii/Sorrento, and Palma Mallorca. Despite our limited time in each port, we were able to see almost all of the major tourist stops in each city. It was an amazing vacation and we loved every minute of it! Here are just a few (of over 1000!) photos of us from our trip:

Palma Mallorca, Spain
This trip sparked a love of cruising for us and we've been on many more cruises since. It is a joy to cruise with our boys and they love it just as much as we do. The amazing history and the amount that we experienced in this 10-day trip definitely makes it our best trip so far. I really hope we can cruise to Europe again soon!
