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
Our flight from Budapest to Amsterdam took a little detour through Copenhagen (hello, Denmark), and both Madison and I were delighted with the efficiency and organization of literally everything. Which makes more sense? Taking two hours to go through the horror that is airport security or the same process taking merely ten minutes due to … Continue reading Amsterdam, Netherlands
Carnaval in Sitges
"'Twas the night before Lent, and all throughout Sitges, every creature was stirring, throwing glitter on beaches. Not a child was safe at home or in bed, for all the parents had lost their damned heads." If Clement Clarke Moore had to write a poem about Carnaval I’m almost certain it’d have gone something like … Continue reading Carnaval in Sitges

I will cherish my visit here in memory as long as I live." We woke up early to make it … Continue reading Rome, Italy //Day 2
24 Hours in Berlin
Whew! It’s been two months since I’ve posted anything and it’s been a whirlwind of a time. More stuff has gone on than you can possibly know, and so, while I’d apologize for my absence under normal circumstances, I’m not going to. Food and I have moved flats after having difficulty with water damage and … Continue reading 24 Hours in Berlin
Sitges, Barcelona, Spain
Sitges and beaches. Fun fact - those two words rhyme, which we discovered when we were pronouncing it “sit-gez” and no one had any idea of where we were planning on taking a little weekend trip.
Mercat de La Boqueria
Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria is an unforgettable experience, and an unmissable one if you come to Barcelona.
