Foto Friday: Ponte Vecchio, Florence

Every Friday I’ll be sharing a photo from someplace in my travels. This week’s photo is of Ponte Vecchio in Florence. Ponte Vecchio, which literally just means “Old Bridge” in Italian, is one of the most famous sites in Florence. Spanning across the Arno River, this medieval structure dates back to the 1300s, but was said to have first appeared as early ... Read More »

Rome Under Wraps

Rome Under Wraps

Our first few hours in the Rome were pretty telling about what the rest of our time there would be like. Arriving into Termini right on schedule, we had just over an hour to drop off our bags and get ready to eat our hearts out on an Italian food tour that I had been looking forward to. Waiting in line ... Read More »

When in Rome… Visit the Vatican!

When in Rome... Visit the Vatican!

The Vatican sees over 25,000 people daily, making it the second most-visited attraction in Rome. That’s… A LOT of people. So clearly, whether you’re religious or not, when in Rome– a visit to the Vatican is a must! Even with only one night in Rome, I knew a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica and the extraordinary Sistine Chapel had to be on our ... Read More »

Rome Wasn't Built in a Day, But it Can be Explored in One!

I could write a book on the mistakes I made traveling around Europe. From only spending one night in London to spending too much time in Vienna… and I haven’t even revealed what my biggest mistake was yet! It seems like the cities I thought I wouldn’t like, or was told I wouldn’t like, were the cities I ended up liking ... Read More »

Classic and Chic at Perla Hotel, Prague

Classic and Chic at Perla Hotel, Prague

After accidentally walking into The Mark Luxury Hotel Prague, I knew that our actual hotel, Perla Hotel, would have big shoes to fill. Walking into the hotel I was immediately relieved as I loved the decor. Although the words scribbled across the large glass panels read, “Perla”, between that, the bold red and yellow colors and the design of the wooden benches, ... Read More »

Looking for the Perfect Travel Purse? Introducing Travelon

It’s hard to find the perfect purse. I know Johnny would disagree seeing as he could easily find me 50 different purses, all in my closet. But the only reason I have so many is because none of them turn out to be that one perfect bag! I’m sure all you ladies can relate. Add travel into the mix and it ... Read More »

Foto Friday: The Canals of Venice

Foto Friday: The Canals of Venice

Every Friday I’ll be sharing a photo from someplace in my travels. This week’s photo is of the canals of Venice. From silhouetted churches to pink skies in Paris, we had plenty of memorable sunsets throughout our 5-week trip in Europe. However, I’m not sure any rivaled those of Venice. Night after night we were rewarded with beautiful sunsets, of which ... Read More »
