A photo tour of February in Paris.
Just in time for Dan and my third Oktoberfest, here is my take on the greatest beerfest in all of the world! We will be there the second week and are also attending the Cannstatter Volksfest in Stuttgart! Prost! Dan and I made our triumphant return to Oktoberfest in September 2014! I first went ten … Continue reading The Greatest Beerfest In All Of The World – My Take On Oktoberfest
As you may know from reading my Wine Cruising to Sauternes post, there are, to many tourists surprise, no vineyards or wine châteaux in the city of Bordeaux! All of the châteaux that make the famous “Bordeaux wine” are located in designated areas around Bordeaux. St. Émilion is one of those areas and in my opinion, is the easiest … Continue reading My Day In St. Emilion Without a Tour Company!
La Rochelle is a beautiful French seaside town located on the mid-Atlantic coast in the Charente-Maritime province of France, and I just got back from spending a long weekend there! La Rochelle is known to be popular with French vacationers, particularly Parisians. However, it is not very well-known in the US, and I probably would never have … Continue reading A Weekend Retreat in La Rochelle, France

I went to two – the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum. Both were great ways to spend a few … Continue reading Amsterdam’s Museum District!
Dan and I took a last minute trip (read: we bought the tickets exactly one week before we left) to Amsterdam in August due to new jobs!! Since it was so last minute, we did not plan much and ended up just relaxing around the city. That was not a problem, as Amsterdam is one … Continue reading Amsterdam in August
As you may have gathered, Dan and I are big craft beer fans, and I was super excited to read that Stockholm was quite the hot spot for craft beer. However, the reading I did before visiting did not portray the full extent of its popularity, including the popularity of American craft beer. Seriously, we … Continue reading Stockholm’s Happening Beer Scene
I am a huge fan of food tours and try to convince Dan to take them wherever we go! Now, when planning Sweden, I did not expect a culinary destination, but I was happily surprised! Luckily, I came across Food Tours Stockholm when doing research and signed us up! This tour was informative, both in the … Continue reading Stockholm Food Tour: A Tasty Take on Stockholm!
I LOVE tasting menus. I love the idea of multiple course dinners. I love to try dishes that I wouldn't normally order. And I love when the restaurant pairs the menu with drinks! Not surprisingly, Stockholm has a lot of restaurants offering tasting menus, some costing as much as $1,000 US a person (!). I … Continue reading Pubologi Restaurant – Tasting Menu & Beer Pairing in Gamla Stan, Stockholm
