I want to see the world.

Often when the hubs and I are asked when we plan on having kids, my first response is that we want to travel and live life right now. I want to see the world. I really do. I'm still selfish and want my husband all to myself...for now at least :) I want to plan super vacations to Europe. I want to take random weekend getaways. I want to have season tickets to Aggie football games and tailgate every weekend in the fall :) But most importantly, I really do want to see the world.

Enter Gougler Super Vacation 2013. That's right, it's so awesome that I gave it a name. Just now. It was good idea. We'll now refer to it as GSV 2013. Bam.

I mentioned a few times {here and here} that I'm super excited about planning my vacay and several of you guessed where my lovely picture was...

...and you were right. It's Rome!!! But here's the best part, this is only the beginning and ending stop we're making because we're actually going on a Mediterranean Cruise!


We will be sailing out of Rome on the Norwegian Epic for a 7 day cruise in May! Check out our awesome itinerary! We're going to see the world! At least part of it anyway.

Hello fabulous! Since our cruise starts and ends in Rome, we plan on spending some extra time in Rome by arriving Tuesday morning prior to our departure. This will give us a full day in Rome on Tuesday and quite a bit of time on Wednesday since we don't have to be on the ship until 4-5:00pm. After the cruise, we'll be able to spend all of Wednesday in Rome again because we booked our flights for Thursday early afternoon. Why rush a good thing right?

So like I said, I want to see the world and we're doing it. I'm adding 2 countries and 5+ cities to my list. Since we went to Barcelona on our honeymoon, this will not be a new city for us. However, there is something magical about finding yourself in a foreign city and actually knowing where you are. That I am excited for. I'm ready to go out, see the world and find out what it has to offer. Best part is that I get to do it with my best friend.

Barcelona April 2010 - When Volcano Eyjafjallaj√∂kul erupted in Iceland and sent volcanic ash all over Europe.

{I'm not sure if I've ever documented our honeymoon on the blog. It's definitely one for the books. I may have to recap it just to retell all of the ridiculous things that went down.}

Have you ever traveled overseas?
What is your favorite country/state/city you've ever visited?

Until next time...
With love and God bless,


  1. I'm very jealous! That trip sounds awesome. You will get to see some great cities. I've been to Florence and Rome and LOVE them both. You will really enjoy the food too!! :)

  2. This is super exciting! You guys will have so much fun. We are totally in the same boat as you on the holding off on kids to get to do some fun stuff first...and we are planning a Mediterranean cruise as well!

  3. I am right there with you. people ask me about kids...but I want to travel!!! i am so jealous this will be so fantastic!

  4. Seriously this has to be my dream vacation!!! I'm so jealous lol

    I've traveled over-seas several times, and my 2 favorite countries, by far, are Switzerland and Italy

  5. Ohhhh my goodness girl- can we come with you?! That is going to be one AMAZING TRIP!! Who did you book through, a specific travel site or an agent or what?! Haha- can you tell I'm excited for you?? We want to travel a lot too in the next few years before we think about kids... our only problem is limited vacation days from work!

  6. I too am super jealous of your trip! I want to go overseas but my husband hates to fly. I'd have to knock him out kidnap him to take a flight that long! And going to Rome right now will be especially awesome! Have fun!! :)

  7. SO jealous!!! Italy and Greece are my dream vacations and a Mediterranean cruise sounds fabulous!! I'll be living vicariously through you it looks like! ;)


  8. Oooh- a Mediterranean cruise sounds so lovely!

    I think my favorite place to visit, though it's hard to pick, is Greece.

  9. I didn't even know they did those kind of cruises! Sounds like a great way to see some awesome places.

  10. I went to the doctor the other day and the nurse's number one travel recommendation for me was to take a Mediterranean cruise - it's next on my list! Your cruise sounds fabulous!

  11. That sounds awesome! I want to take another cruise bad! I was lucky - the summer after my undergrad I traveled Europe and did 11 countries in 25 days. It was awesome! Enjoy yourself, you will LOVE it!

  12. Hi, Amy! I just came across your blog through Helene's link up! So fun to find another Aggie/Houston blogger! I totally agree with your way of thinking!

    You and your husband will undoubtedly have an amazing time! I went on a 14 day Mediterranean cruise in 2007 through Carnival, and still talk about it to this day (BEST TRIP EVER). It was also my first cruise experience.

    Have an amazing time, and I'll be jealous when reading your recap! :)

  13. So jealous of your trip, it looks incredible! I can't wait to hear all about it and see all your pictures!!

  14. Ah how amazing! I did a cruise of the greek isles in high school and it is a place I would love to go back to with Kev one day

  15. Exciting! I lived in Italy for an academic year while in college (and so did my boyfriend...now husband). It's such a magical and romantic place. You will LOVE it (especially the food and wine!).

  16. I AM SO JEALOUS! Take a lot of photos!!

  17. Sounds like an amazing trip! Florence is my favorite city ;)

  18. Sounds like an awesome trip! :)
