It's sort of funny how we ended up in Villasimius. The whole idea to even go to Sardinia began over Christmas during our dinner at Terra Terra in Florence. Christian, our amazing host, told us all about his life on the beautiful island, which we already knew was accessible via a very cheap flight on RyanAir. He described the pristine beaches and laid back lifestyle so passionately that by the time we had...

After all the traveling that Michael had been doing (I think he was home a total of like, 4 days in the last month), we took a very relaxed approach to our trip to Prague. We didn't go into the trip with any sort of agenda - we ate and drank, we slept in, and we didn't pressure ourselves to see a lot of "sights." We didn't go to any museums (shocker!), we took a very different approach to our boat tour, and we...

Our next adventure, right after New Year's, took place over 4 days in Amsterdam! Thanks to RyanAir, we got tickets direct from Marseille to Eindhoven for only 45€ each. The bus ride from Eindhoven to Amsterdam was easy and relatively fast, and before I knew it, we had arrived.
It was my first time to the Netherlands, but The Hub had already been a few times, most recently on a work trip in November, so...

I almost don't want to finish and hit "publish" on this post because then that means that the trip has been taken, the pictures uploaded, the entry written, and our time in Italy is really over. For now. I think the best part about our nearly 2,000 km road trip was realizing how close Italy really is. It only takes about 5-6 hours to get to the border (depending on what part) and now that we know The Pony can...

You know how when people talk about trips to Italy and then they're like, "It was magical! Dreamy! So romantic! Amazing food!" and you're all, "Shut up, I hate you. I want to go to Italy." Disclaimer: that's what's about to happen. Because Italy was awesome.
There were days I thought I'd never be done with this first post about our trip, but finally, it's finished! We spent the majority of the time...

For Stéphanie and Simon's final farewell in October, the four us took a quick trip to Stockholm. Why Stockholm? Well, why not! It's a beautiful city made up of 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. The food is hearty and the drinks are strong. We still had some time before the sun went away for the winter and the off-season fares were too good to pass up. We rented an apartment in the central area...

Oddly enough, I have to thank Ryan Air for introducing me to Porto, Portugal. Stéphanie and I wanted to go on a trip together before she moved back to Montreal and Ryan Air had a great deal to Porto that we just couldn't pass up. Before this trip I had never really heard of Porto as a European destination and I want to make sure that doesn't happen to anyone else. Porto is amazing and it was my favorite trip...

I think that, by now, you all know how much I love wine. Living in California and France has given me the opportunity to learn about wine and the wine-making process in real life experiences, which is best way possible. So when Stéphanie and I took our Girl's Trip to Porto, Portugal, I was really excited to expand my knowledge to a new type of wine about which I knew very little: Port Wine. There's a whole...

I hope you guys are ready for my final post on Copenhagen, because I have many more recent travels to tell you about! You can read about Copenhagen Parts One and Two by clicking on the links.
Like any city, we had a lot of options of what to do with our short amount of time. I think we did a pretty good job of filling our days with relaxing and interesting activities. I've compiled a list of Dos and Don'ts...

Are you guys ready to hear about Copenhagen? Good, because that's what's happening over here this week. Copenhagen is my kinda town and we had a wonderful visit! Everyone was all, "oh, why did you pick Copenhagen for your birthday trip?" And I'm all, "umm, I don't know. Michael says it's cool?" I knew I married him for a reason. The man is smart. We took the very last direct flight of the season from...
