Earlier this month, I did a "Fun Friday" post about international travel, and mentioned I would do a follow up post about a trip to Italy, so here it is! As we are almost at the end of the first month of 2021, we have not seen any change in our travel restrictions, and sadly I think it may be several months more until we do. Once that happens, I would highly recommend this destination. I was fortunate to travel to Milan almost exactly a year ago for a ballroom dance competition. I made this trip with my dance teacher and a few others from our studio. It was special because my teacher is from Italy, and his family was able to come to the competition. It was also really amazing to be there and have time to sightsee with someone who lives there and speaks Italian. We were able to take a day trip to Florence which was beautiful and also spend part of another day touring Milan. The rest of the time was spent dancing which was very exciting in an absolutely amazing ballroom. Of course there was time for enjoying some incredible food as well!

Milano Grand Ball...Ballroom Dance Competition

This was an incredible trip, and I look forward to returning to Italy with my family at some point in the future. I would love to do another dance competition there someday as well. I became a huge fan of international travel with the first trip we took in 2018 to France and Spain. I was so lucky to take another trip to Europe with my family in 2019 while my daughter was doing a semester abroad in the Netherlands, and then this trip in early 2020 before the world as we knew it changed. I am anxious to get back to this kind of travel and so many other aspects of life which remain limited. I am saving up lots of frequent flyer miles and cannot wait to put them to good use! This post highlights two of my favorite ways to have fun... travel and ballroom dance. I am missing all of it so much right now, but try to remain hopeful that we can all get back to our "Fun Friday" activities soon!๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นโœˆ๏ธ
