thoughts for a friday.
i’m sorry i’ve been a bit lax when it comes to thoughts for a friday. but honestly i haven’t had many original thoughts that were deserving of sharing, other than those beyond summer travel. and i’m kinda still in that same boat, so to speak. or maybe i should say, gondola. i’ve got wanderlust this summer, my friends! i’m heading to venice in october, and i couldn’t be more excited. and that’s just one of the stops on what i’m calling our ‘european vacation’ (sans chevy chase).
• first up on the journey, i’m meeting bri from designlovefest in stockholm where she and angela are teaching blogshop (which you should sign up for if that’s your neck of the woods. it’s so much fun!). i’ve never been there, so i’d love any recommendations on shopping, cafes, and sites to see in beautiful stockholm.
• from stockholm, i then head to amsterdam for a few days, to speak at meet the blogger. i’ve been to amsterdam and i love it. i mostly hung out in the jordaan area, and have shopped the 9 straats. have you any suggestions for other must-see spots?
• after amsterdam, i head to rome. i’m meeting back up with bri and we’ll also be joined by jen from ban.do. it’s nuts, right? i never go anywhere like this (or at least not in a very long time), so i’m really, really excited. then from rome, we are taking the train to venice. sigh.
so…dear readers i am wondering if you’re up for sharing some of your favorite spots in these cities? i’d love to hear your thoughts on the best way to experience stockholm, amsterdam, venice and rome as more of a local than a tourist. cuz that’s the way we like to roll. blend in, immerse ourselves and generally just hang out.
