Visiting Madrid

We spent the weekend visiting Madrid after taking the high-speed train up from Barcelona. It was a magical weekend. Madrid really comes alive at night. Very late at night. We were surprised to see so many nightclubs that don’t even open their doors until 3 or 4 in the morning. Alas, we were already snuggled […]

World Cup in Brazil

My husband and I are thinking about traveling to Brazil this Summer to see the World Cup. It’s wonderful to see this tournament heading to Brazil and we’re excited about the chance to visit South America. It will be expensive, so we’re saving our money and planning out the best way to take everything in […]

Weekend Trip to Munich

In the 3rd week of April we went for a weekend trip to Munich to spend our first anniversary. The last time I was here it was to run a half marathon, but this trip was just for rest and relaxation. The weather was fine and remained perfect throughout the weekend, thankfully! We reached thee […]

Bristol Wanderings

Bristol Wanderings

Spent the better part of the weekend in Bristol, England. Bristol is an interesting city with an incredible history as a port of trade. It is notorious for being a hub of so-called “triangular trade”, where slaves were shipped from Africa to America, and then the work the slaves produced were sent from America to […]

Arrived in London to…wouldn’t you know it…fog. It’s been raining on and off for days and the cold, wet air is most unwelcome. But I still love London and am making the best of it by visiting my favorite shops and cafes throughout the city. I’ll be here for at least a few weeks visiting […]

Having Fun in Barcelona

Having Fun in Barcelona

I spent a wonderful few days in Barcelona? What’s not to love about it? Everything from the architecture to the beautiful weather and coast was all part of a great experience. We did get a little rain, which was unexpected, so I spent a few days in the hotel and caught up on some blogging […]

I just returned from a very short trip to Berlin. It’s a lovely city and a wonderful place to visit in the late Summer/early Fall. The highlight for me was seeing all the tourist spots and taking in much of the city’s lengthy history. I stopped for a while at the Brandenberg Gate and wandered […]

Puttering Around in Prague

Puttering Around in Prague

Had a nearly sleepless night in Prague due to a terribly uncomfortable bed at the hotel. The bedding was lumpy and the pillows were hard and uncomfortable. I thought I’d be in a queen size bed, but the only room available had a twin mattress that had clearly seen a lot of wear and tear. But […]
