We’re home!

Well, we actually got home last Saturday, the 20th.  But it’s been so difficult getting back into the swing of things, wow.  Good news, though.  I still have a best friend:


Just love that kid!

I don’t even know where to start with our vacation.  We took something like 3,000 pictures.  I guess I should tell you where we went, huh?!  Okay.  We flew into Lisbon and took a (4-hour) bus ride to Salema.  It was more beautiful than I could ever imagine.


After Salema, we went to Barcelona for two nights.  And I wore shorts out in public for the first time in YEARS!


I know, I live on the edge.

After Barcelona, we went to Paris!


And yes, we went to the top of the Eiffel Tower (that picture was taken from the second level, though).

After Paris…hello Venice!!



It was gorgeous!

And finally, we ended our trip in ROME!


We went on a seven hour bike tour (e-bikes are amazing!) and it was such a great way to see the city.

I have so many pictures to share from the trip, but it may take me a little while.  And yes, I went back to work…at both jobs.  I can’t even begin to tell you how difficult it was for me to go back to delivering pizzas on Tuesday night.  But I’ve gotten back into the swing of things and I will keep doing it for as long as I can.  I know, even the managers at the pizza parlor were surprised I showed up for work!

Okay, one last picture from our trip (for now):


That was the first gelato of five we had in Venice.  No, we didn’t share.  We each had FIVE.  And we were there less than 48 hours.  Whoops!

    Pretty constant lurker here … but I just ordered pizza and had a question for you. First, let me begin by saying I did make a half hearted attempt to find the actual post where you talked about tips, but after reading your blog for awhile I thought you might appreciate the fact that I said “fudge that” and just posted here where it was convenient for me 😉 Anyway, what’s an appropriate % tip? Also, how much of the tip do you actually get to keep? Does it vary from place to place? Thanks =)

    • First, thanks for lurking…I love lurkers and lurking!! And about tipping, I think it really depends. I think I usually get tipped around 10%. Sometimes 20% and sometimes nothing. I get to keep all my tips, but I can also share them with my coworkers. I think it varies from place to place whether someone keeps all their tips. Personally, I tip 20%…especially after having this job. Hope that helps!!
