Vorfreude 2016

You may remember from our pre-trip note last year, that vorfreude is the joyful, intense anticipation that comes from imagining future pleasure. Jim and I leave tomorrow for our long-anticipated trip to Slovenia, Croatia, and the Veneto region of Italy. We’re calling this trip our Adriatic Adventure. If you get out your world maps, you’ll see that the area we’ll be covering is near the northern part of the Adriatic Sea.

We’ll be taking two cooking classes, strolling on three culinary walking tours, sipping our way through several vineyard visits, getting up close to some great art, enjoying some mountain hikes, and wading in some serious Greek, Roman, WWI, and WWII history. Doesn’t it sound like a wonderful trip? Did I mention that there might be cheese involved?

We’ll be back in touch on Friday from Ljubljana, Slovenia. Until then, we’ll be knee-deep in vorfreude.
