It's been a while since I've used my passport, even though I'm always on the go it's usually around the United States (bucket list: I want to visit all 51 states). I dug in my filing cabinet recently to get my passport for a job and noticed it's been 4 years since I went on a tour of Europe. I grew up in poor neighborhoods "The Hood" but I have been blessed to have family who truly believe in leaving your comfort zones.
After I graduated college my cousin gifted me a ticket to tour Europe with her for 10 days!! We flew 9 hours into Barcelona, Spain where we boarded the ship. During our trip we stopped at 5 ports but visited between 8-10 cities. Sorrento and Messina, Italy were my favorites. If you're interested I highly suggest touring Europe via cruise.
Due to weather issues our ship had to make a route change and because of it we got to see a volcano erupt...who in the hood can say that! (LOL)
Take a trip down memory lane with me through photos:
* Remember the trip was back in 2011 so the quality of the photos are not the best.
