This past year has been full of big changes and new travel memories. We moved to Italy and found an apartment with the most beautiful view of Capri. I sold my car in California and bought a used Fiat. I started this travel blog to share travel guides and experiences as an expat in Europe. Along with bringing Alfie to Paris, these were some of my favorite travel memories of 2016.
I love exploring coastal towns in Italy. Sorrento is a short drive or train ride from Naples and a great base to explore the Amalfi Coast. Check it out in the summer for a lazy day lounging in the sun or in the winter if you prefer off season travel. This breakfast was by far the best free hotel breakfast of 2016, if not ever.

I had never heard of the city of Rovinj in Croatia until I went. This city is lesser known compared to Split and Dubrovnik, but it has all the same charm and appeal. Read: Exploring Rovinj, Croatia.
Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities in Europe. I’m currently planning to go back when the tulips are in bloom. Spring cannot come quick enough. Read: Amsterdam for the Weekend.
This year has certainly brought many cherished travel memories, and I’m eager to see what 2017 has in store. What were some of you favorite travel memories of 2016? I’d love to hear about any upcoming trips you have for the new year!
