Stressed is Just Desserts Spelled Backwards!

Hello fellow travelers! My name is Amy (I’m an intern at Ambassador Travel) and I love to travel. I just recently returned from an European guided tour trip and found that my favorite travel destination thus far has to be Italy! Florence, Italy to be exact. Bellisima Citia! The views from the city and of the city are absolutely breathtaking. On the Ponte Vecchio, which runs over the Arno River, you can stop by some of the jewelry shops that the bridge is famous for and take in the view. What’s best about this location is that it’s very close to one of the most famous Gelateria’s in Florence: Perche No!… This little shop has been making homemade gelato everyday since 1939. Translated, it means “Why Not?” and that is exactly what most people say when they duck into the historical location after a long day of shopping.

A five-minute walk from the center of Ponte Vecchio, turn left and take a leisurely stroll down Via Por Santa Maria, which will eventually turn into Via Calimala. This is definitely the place to be for the smart and chic shoppers. Here you will find international chain stores such as, Zara and H&M.

Next, make a right by Zara onto Via Orsammichele. When I was there, I passed this wonderful woman who was selling scarves on the corner. She gave me directions and I bought a scarf. Definitely stop by if you are looking for a friendly local who knows her way around. On this street was where I saw the Gelateria sign Perche No!… and the smell from the shop below was definitely inviting me in! When you first walk in, the different flavors can be a little overwhelming; especially if you don’t know what to try. Well, thanks to the scarf lady I was told to ask for the “flavor of the day” which lead me to the best flavor combination I never would have tried on my own. Pistacchio e caffe’ (pistachio and coffee). My friend also tried a new combination of mint and pineapple which was very refreshing but nothing like my flavor combo!

On a cone or in a dish, they give you a full serving of all natural ingredients and they even have vegan and soy options. No matter where you go in Italy, you will no doubt find the best gelato just by asking the locals. And once you have gelato, you’ll never want ice cream again! For no more than three euros I found a new love in Florence, Italy! Ciao!

Trend Alert: Babymoons-Romantic Getaways Before Baby

The latest trend in vacations is the “Babymoon”. Before the exciting arrival of their bundle of joy, parents go on Babymoons to relax and enjoy a much needed romantic getaway.

A little pampering and luxury is the perfect way to reconnect with your partner before entering (or reentering) parenthood. Depending on the resort or travel destination, places are now catering to babymooners with various packages and perks. Some of these perks include: prenatal massages, baby-bump photography, and prenatal tailored cuisine (no alcohol or raw seafood).

If you’re worried about traveling while pregnant, experts say the second trimester is the safest time for travel. Flying is usually safe until you are 32 to 35 weeks along. Before you begin your travels, we suggest speaking to your doctor before flying or doing any form of travel.

So, before dealing with sippy cups, bibs, and diaper bags, set aside some time to nurture your relationship and enjoy some real alone time with your partner.
