My Q2 vacation came quickly on the heels of my Q1 vacation (since I didn’t manage to take my Q1 vacation until April). Amy and I spent a delightful week in Positano, Italy with David and Jil Cohen. This was their big vacation before David goes heads down all summer on TechStars so it was great fun to hang out, relax, and enjoy the magic of some of the best Italy has to offer.
After a week of vacation bliss, we took the train from trash-filled Naples (what a dump) to Milan where we met up with Jeff and Judy Herman for a week on Lake Como. We arrived to a two day monsoon. While Lake Como is beautiful when the sun is out, we all quickly got cabin fever. Amy and I decided to bail and come home a few days early; everyone else decamped to Milan to wander around the city.
Since I had just been on a week off the grid, I stayed connected this trip. I got plenty of downtime yet kept up with everything going on. I did take a vacation from blogging which was nice. Hopefully it will translate into more pith and creativity. I ran a ton, played tennis and swam every day in Positano, so I’m officially feeling ready for my June marathon. I did manage to counterbalance any potential weight loss with the omnipresent gelato.
