Just a few days ago, I was enjoying the final days of a vacation in Italy. The first few days of the trip I spent at a conference for work that concluded with Mass at Saint Peter’s Basilica and a private audience with Pope Francis.
Then my boyfriend and I spent ten days exploring Rome, Florence, and Turin. Like most travel, it was stressful and fascinating and fun and mind-opening.
With summer on the horizon, I thought the timing was perfect for a series on travel. As you might guess, some planning and advance thought can help you make the most of your vacation. We’ll look at every aspect of your travel — from the basics of planning and budgeting, packing, enjoying your time away, and re-entry into your daily life.
