Krakow: What to Eat and Where to Eat It

Eating out in Krakow is so affordable that you shouldn't have a problem trying all the amazing food! Paczki, pierogi, kielbasa, lody... Some of the best treats can be enjoyed on the go, which is excellent for travelers who may not have the time or desire to sit down to a full meal three times a day.

Lisbon

Portugal is such a lovely country - beautiful towns, friendly people, officially the best wine, and very convenient. In Lisbon, we focused on exploring outside, taking advantage of the sunshine, trying local flavors, and relaxing by the river front. The city also has museums and a highly rated botanical garden for chillier or rainier visits. 

Fatima

2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the Marian apparitions in Fatima, Portugal and I'm so so thankful we were able to whip up a last-minute trip to the shrine while spending a weekend in Lisbon. 

Scottish Highlands

The day after Christmas, Connor and I loaded up a rental car and took off for the mountains and lochs of the Scottish Highlands. After a full day driving, we arrived near Lochgoilhead and settled into one of the best Airbnbs of the last couple years. Our hosts converted an old stable into a gorgeous eco tiny home (she is an architect) and it's now a Grade II listed building. Fresh baked sourdough, a fire in the stove, piles of wool blankets, and a puppy named Pixie greeted us. We immediately regretted not booking the place for more than two nights.

England Updates, Yo

Happy Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy MLK Day, and #allthethings I've missed since Thanksgiving!! I spoke with my Mom yesterday and she reminded me that I hadn't posted in a while, so here I am with a quick rundown of updates. My Dear Mother also mentioned that I was funnier at the beginning of this whole writing adventure. I quite agree, so first on the list of updates:

Claire Came to Visit!

Claire, my wonderful sister-in-law, came to visit the week after Thanksgiving and we had such a blast introducing her to England! It's been so long since I've seen my siblings or siblings-in-law, and it was so nice to spend a week with Claire. We visited York, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Birmingham, and London.

Visiting Salisbury and Winchester

The county of Wiltshire lays southwest of London and is full of ancient barrows, weird stone circles like Stonehenge and Avebury, ancient cathedrals, stately homes, and lots of small waterways packed with trout. Last month we spent a Saturday in Salisbury, stayed in Stockbridge at a cute dog-friendly inn, and fell in love with Winchester on Sunday.

Spain Part IV: Seville

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone! It's about time I finish up the Spain posts. Lotssssss of pictures from Seville so let's dig in. Seville is much larger than Avila or Toledo and we walked a ton over our three day stay. We saw and ate quite a bit. Here are three highlights and some recommendations:
