Taking a bite of everything in the district.
Our massive family decided to escape to the mountains for some well-deserved R&R over the weekend, but failed to decide on which area they were going to. After several hours of deliberation over which place to go to, a little bit of yelling, and lots of sighing in exasperation, I booked some non-refundable rooms and suddenly we were going to Asheville whether we liked it or not.
Fernweh and I are coffee/hot chocolate/chai latte addicts! Just kidding... we have about 2-3 a week but wanted to compile a list of where we've been. This list will be in no particular order and also I sincerely apologize for the lack of pictures. Caravelle: We found this hipster cafe because it was near to … Continue reading Happiness is a foamy cappuccino.
Coffee in Spain, much like every other word in Spanish, is not simply café. There's a million and one varieties.
We stopped by Copenhagen for a mere day before heading over the Oresund Bridge to Sweden, but amazing weather, really good food, and the feel of the city won us over in no time. https://www.instagram.com/p/BEwvCJenD3k/ First order of business - eating. I swear Food eats her body weight after getting off a train, plane, or … Continue reading Copenhagen, Denmark
My first trip to Florence was the thing of my dreams. I’d finished AP European history a couple weeks before and considered myself a savant, spouting off Machiavelli this and Michelangelo that. In a single day, I fell in love with the city and its food, the sights, the people. (But mostly the food.) … Continue reading Florence, Italy
Our parents came to visit for a week and we decided to take the opportunity to go to one of the few European countries than none of us had ever visited. My parents have the traveling bug just about as bad as I do, and have a good 25 years on me, so they’ve been … Continue reading Lisbon, Portugal
We spent a few days in Lisbon not too long ago with our parents, which was their first vacation “alone” in about 15 years. Honestly, I’m not sure hanging out with Food and I is much of a vacation, but we love them dearly and were crazy happy to see them for the second time in the last nine … Continue reading Eating Lisboa
Food and I were too keyed up to be calm when flying to Venice. We had a mere 24 hours before we’d see Fiasco, our younger whirlwind of a sister, and we were also going to be spending the next five days exploring two of our favorite cities, eating a lot of great food, and, … Continue reading Venice, Italy
On the train from Venice to Florence, I was doing a little background research about and discovered that Florence is the birthplace of probably one of the most important things to ever be born - possibly in the history of the world. Gelato. https://www.instagram.com/p/BDg2qV6LOPN/ I believe in levels of love. I love my family … Continue reading A Lot o’ Gelato
