"Are these underwear yours?" DIS Viking Italian Sojourn 2018 TRI’m no stranger to Disney TRs on these boards, but this one will be a little different, as the Disney aspect comes from who we were traveling with and not where we were traveling to. We joined most of the podcast crew, and nearly 100 other DISers, for a Viking Ocean cruise around the coast of Italy. We also added on a couple of pre-cruise days in Rome, and some post-cruise time in Venice. Since this trip was discussed many times on the podcast, and it doesn’t seem to fit on any of the traditional TR boards, hopefully no one minds me plunking it right here on the podcast board.
Buongiorno & welcome!
Buongiorno & welcome!
But first, you might not know who we are, so here’s a quick intro!
I’m khertz, a 32 year old Disney loving wife and mom of 2 rambunctious kiddos. My DH is my partner in crime, found occasionally on the boards as DDuck4Life. He’s 33 years old, and loves Disney just as much as I do! It takes both of us to get a TR done, as I take the notes while on the trip and do the writing and compiling, while DH takes a majority of the photos you’ll see.
This was our second DIS trip, and also our second visit to Italy! In 2014, we joined the podcast crew on their Viva Italia Adventures by Disney trip, and had the most amazing time. When this cruise came up for discussion on the podcast, it sounded incredible, and I was waiting to hear the crazy expensive price. But it wasn’t crazy expensive at all! It actually sounded pretty reasonable for what we were getting for 2 people. So we decided to book, and added on a couple of nights in Rome before the cruise departed and a couple of nights in Venice at the end of the cruise. Those were the only 2 cities we had visited on our previous trip, so all of the ports in between were brand new to us! This was also a brand new experience for me as it was my first cruise ever! We do have our first Disney Cruise scheduled for next year, so it will be interesting to compare.
So if you’re interested in lots of beautiful photos of the Italian coast, tons of food photos, and lots of fun, or if you just want to find out if those underwear were ours, this should be a TR you’ll want to join!
