Didn't someone say that summer is supposed to be a time when you take life easy, things are more laid back and relaxing, you're supposed to sit in the shade of a palm tree next to a pool and sip some icy cold drink? This summer, for Jiri and I, is shaping up to be anything but relaxed and laid back! Over the next few weeks we'll be visiting Italy, moving to a new flat, and then I'll be traveling back to the States for a visit with my family, and on my return to Prague, my brother will be visiting us for the first time! Phew! No lazy summer for us, it appears!
Next week we'll be traveling to Italy--I'll tell you more about that next week. I'm excited as this will be my second trip there. Our last trip was to Florence, where I fell in love with beautiful Tuscany. This time we'll be visiting another part of Italy--and I just can't wait! But...ugh...I need stop now, or I'll tell you where we're going. I want to wait till next week to "spill the beans!" In preparation for our trip, I'm doing some homework on the history and background of the area we'll be visiting. I just can't wait!
Today, along with this background researching about Italy, I've been working on a new page for the Czech Off the Beaten Path website. The new page, "Places to Visit," is just that--a list of places to visit. The list is tied to the appropriate blog posts and is meant to help organize this blog's articles about tourist sites I've visited in the Czech Republic and in Europe.
Well, that's all for now--I'm going back to researching for next week's trip! You all have a great day!
