Hey, all! Just an update on what's been happening lately. I have 2 giant, mega posts brewing, 1 normal sized one waiting, and several that have been happily percolating in the background for some time now.
I want to tell you more about Catalonia, give you a suggested route for a photo tour of Rome, get into the juicy details of the Doge's Palace in Venice, bite into some incredibly delicious Italian eats on a food tour, and (later today!) get a view from the top tier of the Colosseum! I'd like to introduce you to my friend, Mariana, who is visiting Rome with her husband right now, too. Oh, and I created a cover photo for the TourAbsurd.com Official Fan Page on Facebook to go with the new timeline layout (not a fan of the layout, but what can you do?).
The problem is not material, it's time.
24 hours + 1 year of constellations = still not enough time!
You see, I've just set up AbsurdReviews.com, a companion site for brief reviews, travel tips, and guest posts. I want to keep things here on TourAbsurd in a particular voice, with a certain focus (happy travels! nice people! humor and serendipity!), but it meant I was having to edit my thoughts a bit too much and turn down some great opportunities for guest posts.
That, plus all the activity lately, has meant not a lot of time for sitting quietly and writing blog posts. I mean, it's been fun – don't get me wrong – but I'm used to having LOTS of time to gather my thoughts and craft my material. Anyway, here's a sneak peek of what I've been up to and what will show up here in longform, chuckle-inducing posts soon:
Making homemade pizza with my Neapolitan family! :D
Visiting the secret parts of the Doge's Palace in Venice with Sherry Ott.
Providing eats for Mariana's Travel Thirst.
Indulging my sweet tooth on a food tour of Rome.
All of this and more will be on their way to you soon! Now I must dash off to visit the Colosseum and get a VIP view from the top tier. :D
Cheers and happy travels,
Katrina the Busy
How is your spring shaping up?
