A Summer in the Med

If all goes as planned when you read this I will be in Italy, most of the way through day 2 of my summer contract.  From June 19th through October 31st I’ll be sailing through the Mediterranean.  It’s 29 cities and 10 countries and at least one new continent (Africa) and technically 2 (If I get over to the Asian part of Turkey).  Needless to say, I’m excited and a little overwhelmed… Here are some images of where I’m headed:

    • Thanks for reading Jess. Because of my busy schedule I’m not sure that I’ll be posting travel updates in real time (I’m not that cool, wish I was), but starting next week I do plan on sharing my favorite photos of the week on Fridays. working on a ship is pretty cool, and when I’m struggling with jet lag and homesickness I remind myself that I’m very blessed to travel for a living! But I also think it’s cool that you have a full time job at a company you’ve been with for years… not many late twenty-somethings can say that!
