Jet Lagged & Mesmerized!

Hello!
I am so excited to be back but it’s definitely bittersweet leaving my Mediterranean dream getaway behind.  Amazingly, I feel so revitalized & ready to get back to “reality”, even though saying goodbye to 2 weeks of absolute paradise is definitely hard to do, especially when you’ve had 2 weeks of perfect Mediterranean sun, too many languid & indulgent moments of pure bliss and an ocean view balcony overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean sea every single day! Ahhhh…
To say we enjoyed ourselves is a huge understatement!  Among all the amazing moments we had, I loved indulging in honey drenched baklava & garlic infused tzatziki, getting pampered with a lime & ginger sea salt scrub, basking in the heat as we strolled through the bazaars in Turkey, which were adorned with bohemian style lanterns, drinking endless amounts of real european cappuccino & as many scoops of creamy gelato as possible, becoming obsessed {all over again} with the dainty, clam-shaped Sfogliatella desserts, which were laced with lemon cream, ricotta & chocolate, strolling in amazement & lust through La Boqueria in Barcelona & Marche aux Fleurs in Nice and best of all dining al fresco in every city we visited, indulging in bottles of fine Italian wines & amazingly authentic cuisine – paradise!
Europe is breathtaking & my honeymoon last year was also proof of that, but seeing the world by way of a cruise is a completely different experience with so many wonderful benefits {i.e. only having to unpack once was heavenly & waking up to a new city or country almost every day was so magical}!
Barcelona was such a pretty city with old world charm & somewhat reminiscent of Paris.  Nice & Monaco were both luxuriously posh & grandly elegant, especially Monte Carlo, with all its exquisite & high-class beauty.  The Acropolis in Athens & the Tower of Pisa in Pisa are historical monuments surreal to actually see & not to be missed.  The Amalfi Coast really does take your breath away & makes you dream of a time when you could be so lucky to spend a summer there & just take it all in.  Santorini was a little piece of heaven on earth and both Florence & Sorrento were beyond captivating & charming.  Olive trees, lemon trees & sunflower fields adorned the lush landscape in Italy & exotic palm trees, sun-drenched juliet balconies along with decorative & fancy building façades were everywhere to be seen in Barcelona, Nice & Monaco.  It was all a beautiful dream!
♥ I hope the past few weeks were amazing for you too & I can’t wait to get P&C back in motion!
