Travel Tips for Presidential Inauguration

Hello! **waves** I've been back from Italy 2 weeks now and I can't wait to share my recap with you! However before that I'm going to interrupt our regularly scheduled programming with this quick blog post!

On Nov. 6th, 2013 our country Re-Elected Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States! As the first African American President, his 2008 Inauguration was historic and I was blessed to be in D.C. to witness it! Well history is repeating itself and everyone is once again planning to head to our nations capital on January 21, 2013 to share in this moment with friends and family!

Italy Adventures - Day 1/2

Travel day. Chicago to Madrid 7.5hrs + 5 hr layover + 2 hrs to Venice = running on fumes!! 

Luckily travel day was for the most part uneventful. The Madrid airport is huge, confusing and had super clean bathrooms!  Venice is surrounded by water so upon arrival we took a water taxi to our hotel on the island of Lido. It's been raining all day and the water was rough so this made for one bumpy ride. Yikes!

Our hotel is a cute boutique (its actually a Best Western brand lol) hotel and very European, meaning SMALL! However its clean, great location, free wifi, semi comfy twin bed and free breakfast daily. After being in the same clothes for over 24hrs, I was happy to unpack, hug the shower and freshen up for dinner.
