My Viking Story: Romantic Danube with Viking River Cruises - Budapest to Nuremberg

This will be a series of posts - My Viking Story. Because it does warrant that. But, I wanted to write sort of an overview post because along the way, there were some things I knew we did right, and some of them we could have done better. So I was able to collect some tips to share with all of you so you can get the most out of your Viking Cruises experience.

GTGL Snippets: Palmer Square on Ice, Princeton, New Jersey

Love is in the air!

Ice Sculpture Philly embellished a little corner in downtown Princeton, New Jersey with super cool (see what I did there? 😜) artworks. For their final piece, the ice artists carved out these linked hearts to commemorate Valentine's Day. 💕

GTGL Snippets: Via dell’Amore, Cinque Terre, Italy

In 2012, my husband, Jesús, and I spent a week in Liguria, at the famed Cinque Terre. During our stay, we hiked the stretch of Monterosso al Mare to Vernazza, Vernazza to Corniglia, then Manarola to Riomaggiore. Much to my dismay (with some slight gratitude, though), at the time of our visit, the Corniglia to Manarola hiking path had been closed. I say slight gratitude because my husband surely would have been energetic enough to do a straight hike across the 5 lands, which I know would’ve been an amazing accomplishment. But, realistically, I don’t think I would have been able to keep up. This particular stretch of the hike was the easiest though, since it’s all been paved, and it is a veritable street really, just with more breathtaking views than your average strada.
