Trips of a Lifetime; Traveling with Groupon

“Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.” – Dalai Lama

April was a whirlwind month in all the best ways.  I had the utterly amazing opportunity to travel on two trips with Groupon Getaways; one to Chicago and one to Rome and Barcelona.  As a food blogger, I have come to love few things more than traveling to new places, seeing sights that my mind could never even dream of, and eating food that is new and exciting.  The trips we took this Spring are ones I will never forget. I have never struggled so much with how to fit the perfect picture into my camera’s frame, or how to write the perfect sentence to do a place and memory justice.  It’s hard to show the beauty of new worlds, and even harder to describe things that change and inspire you.


“You don’t have to be rich to travel well.” – Eugene Fodor

So amazing! I am totally jealous. I scope out the Groupon vacations in my inbox every week and always wondered how they'd be -- looks like it's time to book it!
Kacey @ The Cookie Writer
I didn't realize a couple of your trips were because of Groupon! That is pretty awesome! I have never traveled by I always scope out their vacations.
    Becky Hardin
    Yes we were really lucky to get to travel with them. Thanks for stopping by Kacey!

Your vacations looked like a blast. And I just love your photos! I think you did a great job!!! I want to get better at landscape photos someday, but one step at a time. I have never heard of Groupon before. I will have to check them out! Maybe hubby and I can book something for our 10th anniversary next year.
So ever since you posted your Rome photos, my husband and I have been looking through the groupon vacations! But.. I was a little worried that it's too good to to true. Or we'd end up in a hotel in the middle of no where. Any tips?
    Becky Hardin
    We had an awesome time! Both of our hotels weren't in "downtown" but were close to easy public transportation or fun sights. When you book the trip you should be able to scope out what hotels are included in the package. I google mapped all of ours to make sure it would be easy to get to the city centers.

So amazing! I love traveling, but have sadly never been to Italy or Spain...definitely on my bucket list! I love groupon, but never think of them when it comes to traveling, will have to keep them in mind for the future!

Wow! What an incredible trip. I can't wait to travel. Well - okay, I can because going to Europe with 5 kids? So not fun. Not until they are older anyway! WE'll see!
