The hubs and I are just getting back into the swing of things after our much-needed romantic second honeymoon. We hadn’t taken any vacation longer than a weekend since our first honeymoon over 2 years ago. We wanted this trip to not only provide some R&R, but also give us a chance to rekindle the romance, which can so easily get lost in the hustle and bustle of day to day life.
On our “honeymoon,” we visited 4 cities: Venice, Rome, Santorini & Athens. This was uncharted territory for us. We truly felt like newlyweds all over again, on an exciting adventure filled with unexpected twists and turns. We found our destination choices to be a perfect coalescence of culture, history, romance and luxury. Exactly what any honeymooner could want, whether it’s your first, or 50th.
The trip also gave me the opportunity to start to learn my camera, and I was able to capture some shots even I am proud of (we are all our own worst critics, right?). Over the next couple weeks, I will share some of my favorite images from each of the cities we visited.

Being on my “2nd Honeymoon,” I decided to throw caution to the wind: No diets, no calorie-counting. It was bliss!
Spaghetti al Nero di Seppia: Pasta made from the ink from squid. This dish was homemade for us by Anna. She extracted the ink herself (and had the stains on her hands to prove it!) and included the squid meat as well. The BEST dish we had in Venice, by far!
…and I can’t forget dessert. They were too gorgeous to eat, and the ones I did try were incredible!
So what do you think of our 2nd Honeymoon so far? Where do you want to/did you go for yours? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
