A Sunny Weekend in Copenhagen

Visit Copenhagen, wander its beautiful streets, and sample their way above average food and beer. You'll be happy as a clam and so glad you decided to visit a country known for it's bike friendly streets and "cozy time" hygge. 

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. 

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.

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:

Spain Roadtrip Part I: Madrid

Madrid is super walkable and we had no trouble covering the central area in two days. Highlights include the Royal Palace with its ornate interior and numerous chandeliers, chocolate con churros at San Gines, beautiful parks, and free entry to world famous art museums!

Unplugging in Portugal's Algarve

The Algarve is a popular destination for the sun-starved English. We stayed in lovely Quarteira, just west of Faro, easily reachable by taxi from the airport. We swam in the ocean everyday, huddled under a sun umbrella with our books, ate breakfast on our balcony looking out at the water, and enjoyed amazing seafood. Also, Vinho Verde: slightly sparkling, crisp and acidic... I've found my new favorite summer wine.
