Leaving Victoria for Sunnier Weather
29.06.2012 - 20.08.2012 16 °C
We have worked hard all year in eager anticipation of our summer vacation. Today we leave home for a long flight to Barcelona. We will be touring the Gaudi buildings and the main tourist street of Las Ramblas, as well as the Gothic district. With comfortable walking shoes, camera and new lenses ready and an abundance of excitement, we are ready for this next adventure.
From Barcelona we will travel to Ibiza for the beautiful beaches and amazing night life. This is a big checkmark on our bucket-list. As enthusiastic Electronic music listeners and fans, we are ready for the party of a life-time, hearing the top DJ's in the world in the most famous electronic music-scene venue. As we're getting older, we both wonder if we will survive this week of festivities, but are both willing to make a great attempt watch out Ibiza, we are coming!
From Ibiza, we fly to Dubrovnik and begin our incredible journey up the coast of Croatia. Beautiful architecture and buildings from the Roman Empire, stunning and warm waters of the Adriatic, beautiful people and food, and a visit with family all await us in this leg of the trip.
We will end up in Venice to see the intricate maze of waterways, gondoliers, Venetian architecture, gold-encrusted churches and stain-glass windows.
Andrew will leave from Venice and return to Victoria to share the remainder of his summer with friends and visiting relatives, while I (spoiled as I am), will remain in Croatia to spend time with my family and bask in the heat of the Croatian Summer.
Life is good!
I will attempt to maintain the blog in this whorl-wind journey... come along and join our travels! We love to hear how you are all doing back home, and to know that our weather trumps yours (HA!) hehehe.
Much love and many hugs to you all. We'll be seeing you in a couple months. Enjoy your summer everyone!
