The Netherlands

“God created the world but the Dutch created the Netherlands.” – Rene Descartes We went to the Netherlands for a week back in April, and I crossed another country off my list. Thirteen countries down, 17 more to go to reach 30! Andrew says travelling with me is starting to get easier, lol. I wouldn’t say … More The Netherlands

Chill-out In Lanzarote

We needed a change of scene before Christmas -something completely different from home. I think both of us were missing California when we decided on Lanzarote, and it showed!

We stayed in Puerto del Carmen near Los Jameos Playa, and beached. it. up. We filled up on tapas and enjoyed the sunshine. … More Chill-out In Lanzarote

A Weekend In Geneva

Hello world! Remember me? I didn’t mean to disappear from the blog for so long. August and September came and went without much excitement, so I didn’t feel the itch to write. But I’m breaking my silence now to tell you all about our mystery weekend booked through srprs.me! Srprs.me is a travel site that … More A Weekend In Geneva

Holiday In Portugal

Since moving to the UK, our traditions and habits have changed quite a bit. We spell words differently and spend less time with family. Our holidays are spent experiencing new things rather than returning home. Last month we went to Portugal for Easter, and I realized it’s been a few years now since we had a “real” … More Holiday In Portugal

Berlin City Break

Our Christmas present to each other was a quick getaway to Berlin. We were drawn by the Christmas Markets, and the price was right, so off we went! Germany goes all out for Christmas, and we were excited to see for ourselves if German Christmas Markets are in fact the best. I think I’m still … More Berlin City Break

Bath

We had a bank holiday weekend at the end of August, and I was just not prepared for summer fun to end, so… We went to Bath for the day and spent the night in London. Bath was lovely, and we had a nice wander around, but I must say my favorite part of the day … More Bath

Austria

On the drive from Prague to Austria, lines from Billy Joel’s “Vienna” kept playing through my head: Slow down, you crazy child You’re so ambitious for a juvenile But then if you’re so smart, then tell me Why are you still so afraid? Where’s the fire, what’s the hurry about? You’d better cool it off before you … More Austria

Prague

July was pretty epic guys. After my family visited, we all traveled to Prague and Vienna together. So much fun packed into one month, and now I’m going through withdrawals… Andrew and I went to Budapest last year, and ever since we’ve been itching to go to Prague and Vienna. They were important cities in the Habsburg … More Prague

A Day In London

Once a month or so, Andrew and I like to go to London for the day and get lost. We’re only 20-30 minutes away by train, but we’re often so tired by the weekend that we choose to stay home (and save money). I catch up on boring, but necessary, things like laundry -an all day … More A Day In London
