I mentioned in this post how much I enjoyed following other Slow Travelers as they decide on a location, start planning their trips, and then take off!
Here's a quote from that post:
I have excitedly following my blog friends either on their trips to Italy (Girasoli, Palma, Jane) or as they plan them (Sandra is one of them), and I have to say that I was particularly excited when Andasamo told us that she had indeed jumped at the chance of spending three weeks in Italy (Florence, to be exact) in October! How fun. This also made my own desire to go back to Italy stronger.
I am also thrilled to be reading about Kim's trip to Paris, especially after everything she has been through! And while catching up on blogs this morning, I realized that Girasoli bought her ticket and is ready to go this summer! Yay! Her recent series on Bologna has been great inspiration - not only for me but for Sandra who is going there as well.
Anyway, since I focused my February blogging on Norway, I never wrote about my trip or even the fact that I have a ticket and am ready to go to Italy in late April! I am not sure why, but somehow planning for an Italy trip feels even more special than planning for other trips. One reason might be the fact that there is SO much information - for instance, Trip Advisor has reviews for something like 1500 hotels in Rome! Also, it is fun because I get to share it with friends and ST friends alike - many people have been to Italy, while not many have an opinion on where to stay in Rivas, Nicaragua!
I'll start a new post writing about the planning and the decisions having to be made. They are fun decisions, though!
