Stockholm

July 27, 2018 – July 29, 2018 Stockholm has been on my travel bucket list for a while. The Nordic countries have always fascinated me with their commitment to minimalism and cleanliness. Everyone seems happy and balanced, especially during the summer when it’s light outside for 18ish hours. Not to mention, the landscape and natural…

Cochem – Castles, Riesling, and Squad

July 20, 2018 – July 22, 2018 Recently, Tyler and I learned that Riesling wine region in Germany is just a short 3.5 hour drive from Amsterdam. Although the sweet, white wine is not my typical drink of choice, I love a good road trip and a good wine country. Friday after work, we hopped…

Rock Werchter Belgium

July 7, 2018 – July 8, 2018 If I had to describe my husband in a few words, a top phrase I would throw out would be ‘music lover’. One of the first dates we went on was to a Jimmy Buffet concert, and at the time I did not know the extent of his…

St. Emilion – French Wine Country

June 2, 2018 – June 3, 2018 A romantic weekend trip to wine country, what could be better? For my better half’s birthday, we decided to spend a relaxing weekend in St. Emilion, about a 40 minute drive from Bordeaux. The early morning flight to Bordeaux put us in St. Emilion around 10am, after first…

UK – English Countryside

May 19, 2018 – May 21, 2018 Visiting the English countryside has always been a dream of mine. Maybe from all of the times I had to watch Little Women on road trips with my family as a child or because the holiday is one of my favorite movies. Whatever the case, I put it…

Spain – Paella and Beaches

May 9, 2018 – May 13, 2018 When you have a 4 day weekend and you live in Europe, there’s nowhere better to be than Spain. We took advantage of the time off work to visit Valencia and Mallorca. Valencia, a city south of Barcelona on the east coast of Spain is rich in history…

Rome is where I want to be

May 4, 2018 – May 6, 2018 A few weekends ago, I made it back to the first city I ever visited in Europe, the wonderful Rome. As a college student, I studied abroad in Tuscany for a summer and spent a week in Rome on the front end. This trip back was just as…

Port-Lis-Lago-ugal

March 24, 2018 – April 2, 2018 Note: this post took me a really long time to write, sorry if you fall asleep during it. Move over Italy, Portugal is my new favorite country. From the wine region of Porto, to the busy city hustle and bustle of Lisbon, to the beaches in Lagos –…

Ooooh Morocco

March 24, 2018 – April 2, 2018 In the Netherlands, not only do you get off work for Good Friday, but you also get a holiday for Easter Monday, resulting in a 4 day weekend. We took advantage of this by stretching out our vacation to the week before and going on a proper holiday,…
