We just had the most fabulous vacation!
In late August we took the Disney Magic cruise ship for a trip that went from Barcelona to France, Italy, and then back to Spain. I can’t say enough how truly “magical” this experience was! We all loved it!
Here’s a picture of the ship (borrowed from online images):
It was quite spectacular! The kids had a lot of space and activities to themselves, which led my husband and me to have a lot of time alone – woo-hoo!
We stopped in Nice, France. We didn’t get off the boat that day, but it was truly beautiful. Then we went on to Italy and visited Florence: (Il Duomo)
We also saw this guy:

Then we went on to Pisa:
Yes – it is still leaning!
Then we saw Rome:
And the Vatican:
We skipped getting off in Naples (we were pooped!)
But at the end of the week, it was these smiles that made us happiest:
Now we are back to school, but this will definitely be a vacation that lives in our hearts and minds for a very long time!
