Visiting the North Shore has been high on my priority list since moving to Minnesota. John and I decided to try and chase the fall colors up north this last week, and we were a bit late as the trees had already peeked but, it was definitely worth the visit.
When first planning our European trip, Venice, was at the top of our list. I had heard very unflattering reports of the city being smelly, crowded, and overrated. My review is of a somewhat more flattering nature. I'm totally smitten with the sinking city.
When I first learned of the opportunity to cruise through Northern Europe and Russia with Princess Cruises, I didn't exactly know how to feel. Excited, nervous, and intrigued all come back to mind. I have been very fortunate to experience travel through Central Europe as a young adult. Scandinavia is definitely, a big part of the world I was missing.
