On our cruise around the Mediterranean last summer, on of our stops was Athens. We arrived in Athens on the same day that their Prime Minister stepped down and Athens was a true ghost town. It was a bit eerie as we drove through the city.
We were invited to a family wedding in Tuscany last summer and we decided to do some cruise travel before the wedding. This was our first time taking our toddler to Europe so we really thought about where we’d like to go and how cumbersome it might be. The kicker is that the destination wedding was black-tie and involved several events where we’d need nice clean clothes, so we had to bring more than usual. Cruising with a toddler seemed like the easiest way to experience Europe with our luggage.
