Venice, Italy

Venice, Italy

Finally the European country I had been waiting for! I had a little over three weeks planned here and couldn't wait to eat all the pasta and drink all the wine! We are visiting Venice, Florence, Naples, Capri, and Rome. Lots to fit in in three weeks with lots of prepurchased tickets. First up: Venice. 

Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona,  Spain

After relaxing and roaming around Lisbon for the past week we hopped a very short plane ride to Barcelona. This was one of my most favorite European cities. There was so much to see, do, and eat! We got our fill of architecture, art, tapas, and wine.

Portugal

Portugal

Continent number six! Our last leg of the trip. Having just spent about six weeks in Africa running around non stop we arrived in Lisbon exhausted. We had an amazing Airbnb with a huge couch with two separate bedrooms and we spent the first full day just relaxing. We were both in need of some alone time.

The nine month adventure has come to an end. I am both sad and excited to be home. My guess is the excitement will wear off quickly and I will want to be back on the road again.

Since I am an accounting nerd her is a little recap of how we saved money on this trip.

Senegal

Senegal

We decided to go to Senegal based on a DNA test. Earlier last year Tim and I did the ancestry DNA test. Surprise surprise I am like 98% European (mostly Germany). Tim found out that he had matches in Western Africa. One of the areas being Senegal. So we decided to visit Dakar, Senegal for our last stop in Africa. This was a much different stop than our previous countries in Africa.
