Italy...wish Matt & I were there too!! I can't wait to go back to Italy. Matt will LOVE the food and I love EVERYTHING about it!! You look like you're having a ball can't wait to hear all about your travels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOW, these pictures are so amazing, you had such a great idea... backpacking through Europe. I when do you come back? I want to make sure we set aside some time to chat I miss talking to you and I can't wait to hear more about your trip.
Daina, I've learned so much on your European tour! The pics of Italy are gorgeous! Are you tempted to stay? How is your Italian? Are you able to utilize your Spanish to help you with a lot of the words? How is the food? Can't wait for your blog!
If you are going back to Rome a GREAT restaurant is Sans Susi. I'm sure I'm spelling it wrong but it's off the Via Venito. We stayed @ a hotel on the Via Venito called the Excelsior and it was around the corner so we walked from there.
If you are not going back to home but have a chance the island of Capri is beautiful as well as all of southern Italy.
Your pictures are WONDERFUL! Travel safe!!! Diane
Daina ~ the pictures of Spain are amazing. I can't wait to see Italy. Your trip has me reconsidering my entire way of vacationing, backpacking seems like the best way to maximize sightseeing! Maybe you could become a backpacking tourguide! Next stop Australia..... Have a blast in Italy! I don't know any Italian phrases but stay away from the hotties in suits, they're probably mafia
Will you make it back across the Channel? If so, go to the Edinburgh International Festival in Scotland. It runs through August and is a lot of fun!
Hey Daina, it sounds like you are having a great time in Spain. I am glad you were able to meet up with Jennifer. Where are you off to next?
Hola Daina...como estas? I live for your blogs! So you ran upon my people in Madrid? Mi Espanol es mas mejor que mi Frances tambien! A few phrases to remember...A que hora es? What time is it? Donde esta el bano? Where is the bathroom? Cerveza por favor or Vino por favor--you should know those :). Donde esta el tren? Where is the train? Tengo que tocer el tren. I have to catch the train And if another strange man wants to touch your face...NO ME MOLESTA! Miss ya!
Hi Daina! Your stories are so funny! I wish I would have gone to Spain a little later then we could have done some traveling together. European men are very affectionate.... In Spanish if you want them to go away say "Dejamen Pas!" but if you want more say " MAS POR FAVOR SUAVESITO!" hahhahaa!!! Oh try a coffee drink called a bonbon, it's espresso with condensed milk. Have fun!
I forgot your were going to Spain. Not much help in Madrid from me but the Costa del Sol is amazing. If you get down that way try to go to the Alhambra. It was so beautiful. Also we did a day trip to Tangier which is in Africa. You'd love it! Be safe can't wait toi see more photos!
Daina, I just got caught up on your blogs from 8/1. I'm wondering...was the strange man that touched your face a PIMP?! Was he trying to recruit you? Hahahahahaha! Here's a phrase that comes in handy in those situations...vous ne m'embetez pas! or you can yell "UN FEU...UN FEU!" Which means FIRE! LOL. Great seeing the pics and hearing about your trip! Have fun!!!
Matt I I are loving to travel with you this summer through Europe. We check for new pictures every night. So far I think your pictures are WONDERFUL and you have seen such great things. I don't remember if you said you we going to Germany next. In any event I can't wait to see more!!
Looks like your having ALOT of fun! Make sure you check out at least one of the places we saw on that show on MOJO the HD channel. Looking forward to more pics!

I can't believe I missed your first message! I normally read e-mails after midnight. I am so happy to hear from you! I tried reaching you before you left but I know you had a lot to do. Well, I hope you are having a great time exploring. I think it's awesome you're doing this - we take life so seriously sometimes. Enjoy, relax, and let loose. Hey, you might want to add Frances - he could tell you so much. His e-mail is [email protected] if you want to include him. Please keep the blogs coming. P.S. Because of you we got another dog - Cavalier! The kids didn't stop talking about your dog and we gave in.
Hey Daina~ This is such a great thing to do....how exciting! I am sooo happy for you that you are making one of your dreams come true! You deserve it! I will be thinking of you and checking in to see what adventure you are for that day! Blessings and Love to you special lady and friend!~D'Lynn~
