Day 10: Connemara and Galway

Galway is by far my favorite city in Ireland. It’s young, hip, vibrant, and one of the best areas to have a “night out on the town” in Ireland. What’s even better? You can...

Day 5: West Cork

West Cork stole a piece of my heart last October and I have yet to find a place in Ireland that brings as much peace as this...

Part 1: The Instagrammer’s Guide to Road Tripping Ireland

I have a confession. Before we moved to Ireland, I had never considered visiting.. In fact, it was kind of on the bottom of my “Europe” list. I had seen pretty pictures of it, but when I think of Europe I think of history and iconic sites like Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, Vatican City, etc.  If you,...

The best spot to sleep in Pisa, Italy

The best spot to sleep in Pisa, Italy

Headed to Italy soon? If you’re flying within Europe and want to visit Tuscany the cheapest airport is likely to be Pisa. Now, we all know Pisa for the leaning tower. And, while I’m sure it’s a cool spot, we fell in love with Pisa for a different reason. It was our last day of our week-long Italy vacation and...

April 2017 Recap

April 2017 Recap

A recap post! It’s my first one, but as I hit my one-year blogversary last month I thought it was time to write one! I’ve been a little quiet lately on the blog. In short, this year has been crazy so far — 16 flights, 5 countries, and many nights sleeping in random beds around the world. It’s safe to say I’m ready...

Siena Walking Tours: A Must-Do in Tuscany

Siena Walking Tours: A Must-Do in Tuscany

Walking tours are such an interesting conundrum. Either you hate them or you love them. I know some people who live by them. It’s the first thing they do when they visit a new city. We had a really bad experience in Munich on a free walking tour where an American expat led us (and 30 other people) around the...

The perfect B&B in Florence

The perfect B&B in Florence

Before heading to Florence we struggled to find a unique place to stay in our price range. We try to only stay in locally owned establishments and tend to steer towards AirBnB as a result. We wanted to try something different so set out on a hunt to find a locally owned B&B in the center of town within our...

Discovering Ireland’s Wild West on Achill Island

Discovering Ireland’s Wild West on Achill Island

A few months ago I came across a series of pictures from County Mayo and knew that we would have to make it over to this beautiful county soon. Luck would have it that my cancelled Morocco trip led to staying at a glamping site on our own private island and left plenty of time to explore. The highlight of...

An Epic Island Retreat in County Mayo, Ireland

An Epic Island Retreat in County Mayo, Ireland

Watching the sun set over the Atlantic ocean with my hubby and the strong scent of a working farm was a dream come true after a pretty crappy start to the weekend. I’m a strong believer in “everything happens for a reason” and we were so lucky to be hosted by Belmullet glamping site last weekend after a very last-minute...

Life as an expat

Life as an expat

Our life has been a whirlwind as of late! The hubs turned 30 last year and I’m itching my way up there so we’ve been talking a lot about the future and where we want to settle “long-term” (in other words longer than 2 years) so I’ve been super caught up in my thoughts. In addition to all of that...

Eating our way through Budapest

Eating our way through Budapest

Just putting this out there – I’m a terrible food photographer. I would much rather take photos of our hikes, rugged landscapes, or cityscapes. On our recent trip to Budapest I had planned out a huge list of foodie places I wanted to go. Since we visited in the dead of winter I knew we would need to escape inside...

7 Breathtaking Under-the-Radar Day Hikes in Europe

7 Breathtaking Under-the-Radar Day Hikes in Europe

If you have followed the blog for a while you know I LOVE a good hike. I’m always scanning Pinterest for lesser known hikes in Europe and even created a board specifically for hikes in Europe. I realized that I can’t be the only one looking for new hikes so decided to work with other bloggers who have a knack for hiking...
