Oh Mateo. Dear Mateo. You’re almost TWO years old. Yep, THIS week! What?!
That means we’re behind on these monthly posts. We better catch up! At the time, I remember thinking that there was so much to share. Gah, it makes me wish I took notes. It’s amazing how quickly it all becomes a big blur!
Thank goodness for my trusty camera. NOW I remember why this post never got written. We were busy. Your 22nd month was your busiest travel month yet.You were in three countries (Croatia, Austria, and Italy). Four countries if you count driving through Slovenia (both on the way to Austria & again on the way to Italy). You traveled by car, by speedboat, by ferry, by water taxi, by city metro, tram, and by bus. Funny that I titled your 21 month post: “you little traveler.” OH MAN, then I better say — 22 months: you seasoned traveler! So without further ado: a little peek into the life of Mateo. June 16-July 15!
You really are a great traveler. PHEW! So many more adventures ahead, Mister! Hopefully some that you’ll actually remember, ha. Even if you don’t remember it all, I will. I promise you had a ton of fun. That’s for sure.
Kiddo, you’re not even two yet. But soon! ;)
Feel free to look back! Mateo at: 21 month, 20 months, and 19 months.
OH MAN, we had a ROUGH boat ride yesterday (2 & 1/2 hours on an especially bumpy speedboat). At one point I had a stranger fanning me (yeah, for real) and Mateo soiled his entire outfit and Aki’s. (I won’t go into further detail). :/ Poor kid, poor Aki. BUT, as soon as we set foot on Korčula (a Croatian island I’ve been wanting to visit for years) it was ALL worth it. (note to self: do not sit at the very front of the boat in the future).
Korčula is said to be founded by a Trojan hero in 1200 BC, and claims to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. In any case it’s BEAUTIFUL and steeped in history!
We just had the loveliest of lovely LAZY mornings on our garden terrace (eek, we totally lucked out with this place) and now to find a beach! (Mateo is currently yelling “mama, mama, coming beach! mama beach! mama coming?).
Missed all the fireworks and BBQs in the US of A yesterday! Made us miss our friends and family. (It was Independence day over in the States, or as we call it back home, just “the 4th.”). Hope everyone at home had fun celebrating! xo :)
We’ve been getting lots of questions about Croatia as well as requests for recommendations on places to visit. I’m hoping to work on a post just for you guys, but until then please join our FACEBOOK page if you want chat. I’m there! :)
