For my husband’s 30th birthday, he suggested that we travel to Montreal, Quebec to go to the 2017 Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada. Formula 1 is one of his greatest passions and I’m always up for a vacation, so I quickly agreed. Continue reading
Here it is – the Bucket List Post!!
Recently I read an article from Travel + Leisure that suggested, with scientific research, that wanderlust is genetic. After reading, I immediately forwarded it to my parents with all of the travel emojis that I could find. Reason being, they instilled in me a love for exploring new places and learning about different cultures. I’m pleased to say that I’ve married a man who I’ve been able to pass this yearning onto. And I’m even more excited that he’ll be able to accompany me on my bucket list adventures. Continue reading
Usually when I get to a new city, I like to rent a car, cruise around, and check everything out on my own. However, my husband and I were only in Southern Italy for a day so we decided to book a tour with Viator. Like I mentioned, I’m not usually one for tours but this one certainly exceeded our expectations.
When you’re in Italy, it’s almost a given that some wine tasting needs to be done. But with so many options, how do you choose? Wine tastings can get pricey and they tend to be 2-3 hours long so it’s not ideal to choose more than a couple, unless you’re solely in Italy for that reason.
Two wine tastings that I found to be exceptional options are Vino Roma and Rimessa Roscioli. Both of these tastings were very different from each other so I hope that I can do them both justice by describing the experiences that we had at each one. Continue reading
Just as it is in America, the craft beer scene is becoming more and more popular in Italy. We had the opportunity to try out some places while in Rome and they’re definitely worth mentioning. Each place that I’ll list is very different from the next so I won’t be putting them in any particular order. Continue reading
Just walking among the pristine streets of Cannes, France will make you swoon. There’s just something special about a place where you can smell fresh macarons and madelines being made in the nearby bakeries. Heavenly.
Although there are many fun things to do in Cannes besides eating French pastries, I have one thing in particular that I believe has topped the list. Continue reading
To choose only 3 restaurants for my “Best Of” list is extremely difficult. I have been to so many restaurants in Rome that I have enjoyed and savored in true foodie fashion. However, there have been 3 specific restaurants that have made me lovingly exclaim, “This is the best meal that I’ve ever had!”. Hence, why they have made my top 3 list. Continue reading
I was once told by a born and bred Roman that Florence was like the Disney World of Italy. He told me that every branch of every tree was perfectly placed by God above. Every street showed a beautiful glimpse of a countryside made for kings. Of course, he said this with a scoff, as he was proud of his own simplistic Roman ways. However a scoff was far from my reaction to this description. My heart ached to visit such a place and I began to get that giddy feeling that one does right before visiting Disney World for the first time. Continue reading
