OUR 19TH ANNIVERSARY IN EDINBURGH

OUR 19TH ANNIVERSARY IN EDINBURGH

Okay, the day has finally come for the last Europe travel post.  You may or may not have read yesterday, but I explained how I thought the blog was becoming stale and lacking variety with such a heavy focus on travel.  I wanted a break from exclusively talking about...

A DAY IN THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS

A DAY IN THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS

As promised I’m finally getting our Scotland trip up on the blog.  I’ve talked about everything else about our Europe summer vacation but what many of you probably don’t know is it all started with Scotland. We’ve traveled to France, England, and Ireland, but Scotland...

VISITING THE SACRE COEUR IN PARIS

VISITING THE SACRE COEUR IN PARIS

I should have had this post up a few months ago... SHAME but better late than never I always say.  The Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Paris was my favorite thing about or last trip to Paris.  Also known and commonly referred to the Sacre Coeur, it sits up on a hill...

A DAY TRIP TO WINDSOR CASTLE

A DAY TRIP TO WINDSOR CASTLE

I'm back with another Europe post, I actually have a few more left that I want to write.  I needed a little mini break, but now I'm ready to share Windsor Castle with you!  You might say we we're fans of Harry and Meghan, we all got up at 5 am to watch the wedding and...

3 DAYS IN BRUGES, BELGIUM

3 DAYS IN BRUGES, BELGIUM

I've had lots of people ask me what our favorite part of our 6 week Europe vacation was.  It's a hard question, all the countries were amazing in their own way, but I would say Bruges in Belgium won my heart.  It's a close call with Italy though... it was amazing...

INVERARAY CASTLE IN SCOTLAND

INVERARAY CASTLE IN SCOTLAND

Visiting Inveraray Castle was like stepping into a fairy tale.  It was probably one of our favorite things while in Scotland and I'm so excited to share it with you today.  You might have remembered how I mentioned in a few older blog posts how Brian is related to the...

TIPS ON MAKING YOUR TRIP TO PARIS MORE ENJOYABLE

TIPS ON MAKING YOUR TRIP TO PARIS MORE ENJOYABLE

Bonjour! I am back with another travel post today, with one of my favorite places in the world, PARIS!  It's just such a magical place, and even though we recently visited during the heat wave in the peak of travel season it was still amazing.  I'm incredibly grateful...

A DAY TRIP TO BRIGHTON, ENGLAND

A DAY TRIP TO BRIGHTON, ENGLAND

I'm back up and running now - although a bit slowly - so let's talk about Brighton!  I have a ton of vacation posts to write but I felt the urge to start with Brighton, I guess because it makes me think of the beachy summer and I feel summer slipping away quickly!  I...

THE EUROPE DIARIES VOL. 4

THE EUROPE DIARIES VOL. 4

Home sweet home.  I had such an amazing trip with Brian, I saw the most beautiful things.  I had fun, I had adventure, I laughed and I cried, having said that I'm now so happy it's over!  We arrived home late Thursday night, it was such a long day, we flew home from...

2 DAYS EXPLORING CAMBRIDGE

2 DAYS EXPLORING CAMBRIDGE

Last minute decisions on our vacation led us to Cambridge and I'm incredibly grateful we got to explore this amazing place!  It's funny where life will sometimes lead you, and we absolutely fell in love with Cambridge.  Not including travel days, we spent 2 full days...

12 MUST SEE THINGS IN DUBLIN

12 MUST SEE THINGS IN DUBLIN

Recently we took a trip to Dublin, as you may or may not know this wasn't our first time visiting the city.  On our last visit to Ireland we spent a good chunk of our time outside of the city.  It was an amazing trip but once we returned home I started wishing we...

WHAT TO EAT & DRINK IN BRUGES, BELGIUM

WHAT TO EAT & DRINK IN BRUGES, BELGIUM

WARNING:  This blog post may cause hunger pains and an intense urge to drink beer. BEER Let's start with the obvious here, beer!  Belgian beer can be traced back to the 12th century.  It is believed that St. Arnold saved his people from the plague by telling them to...

A DAY TRIP TO STONEHENGE & BATH

A DAY TRIP TO STONEHENGE & BATH

A few days after we arrived in London we took a day trip through Viator to Stonehenge and Bath.  It takes a little over 2 hours to get to Stonehenge by bus or car from London.  As far as I know there is no way to get there by train, so going by bus and taking the tour...

THE STREETS OF NOTTING HILL

THE STREETS OF NOTTING HILL

I’ve always wanted to explore the charming neighborhood of Notting Hill so when we were able to find a hotel inside the neighborhood we jumped at the chance to stay.  When we were spending our last few days in Italy we kinda had a ruh-roh moment and realized we hadn’t...

LAKE COMO & BELLAGIO

LAKE COMO & BELLAGIO

I can't get over the town of Bellagio, just stare at it and take it in for a minute.  The entire area of Lake Como has stunning beauty but this town nestled up against the mountains is just perfection.  It's everything you'd expect it to be and more. We didn't stay in...
