I earned the Stampin' Up! incentive trip to the Greek Isles 2019! #stampcandy

I feel like I’m finally starting to recover from my trip. They say it takes one day of recuperation for each hour of time zone difference, but I think I may have gotten upgraded to the 2 day per hour plan. In case you don’t know, I went on Stampin’ Up!’s incentive trip, which was a week long cruise of the Greek Isles.

The trip was wonderful… and exhausting. I averaged walking about 5 miles per day. Unfortunately, that’s much more than I’m accustomed to. So between that and the jet lag, which I never handle well anyway, I’ve been pooped!

I spent several days in Italy, both before and after the cruise. In the 15 days I was gone, I went on lots of fascinating (and hot!) tours and excursions, in both Italy and Greece. Today I’m sharing photos from my first one to Tuscany. We saw lots of picturesque countryside, and visited the villages of Montepulciano and Pienza, as well as the Abbey Of Sant`Antimo. And we had a delicious lunch at a small vineyard.
