How I spent 1 day in Dubrovnik, Croatia, 10 years after my first visit there!
Dan and I took a full day tour to the Napa Valley from San Francisco with Max’s Wine Tours. After scouting out a number of tour companies, we went with Max’s Wine Tours because it seemed to encompass the most winery visits (and therefore the most tasting). The tour was quite expensive, at about $175 a … Continue reading Napa Valley Wine Tasting
We really wanted to visit a few wineries during our time in Cape Town but we didn't want to drive (due to all the tasting we planned to do) so we decided to take a full day tour. There are a lot of options, and we ended up going with Wine Flies, and are so glad that … Continue reading The Most Fun Wine Tour – Stellenbosch, South Africa
Dan and I began our trip to Southern Africa in Cape Town, South Africa! Cape Town is a gorgeous, historical city with so much to offer! Literally, it has beaches, mountains, great food, even better wine, craft beer, so much history, a mix of people and an evolving political climate. Cape Town makes for such an interesting place … Continue reading One Week in Cape Town, South Africa!

Now, how to go about that… Doing some internet research, I discovered that a number of companies run full-day wine tours from Mendoza, most ranging between $130 and … Continue reading Mendoza Part II: The Wine Tour

Mendoza is in Western Argentina in the Cuyo desert region, and it is the capital of the Mendoza province. The city is … Continue reading Mendoza Part 1: An Introduction
Hallstatt, Austria was our third stop of Eurotrip2014, and Hallstatt was quite possibly my favorite place on the trip! Hallstatt is a tiny village in the Salzkammergut lake district in the middle of Austria, historically known for salt production, and recently known for tourism (and for the knock-off replica in China). I added Hallstatt to … Continue reading 24 Hours in Hallstatt, Austria – September 2014
The second stop on Eurotrip2014 was Munich, Germany (or München, in German) for Oktoberfest, and just because we love Munich! Munich is the capital and largest city in the State of Bavaria in the South of Germany. Munich (and the whole of Bavaria) has a very specific culture, and is very proud of that culture. Think beer, … Continue reading Munich During Oktoberfest – Eurotrip 2014
We dined at Schnitzelbank on our final night in Heidelberg. Schnitzelbank is a small restaurant/wine bar in the Altstadt. It is tiny (but oh so charming), so make a reservation. We called the day of and got their final reservation. The specialty is obviously schnitzel! They have schnitzel in veal, pork, chicken and turkey. I ordered the pork … Continue reading Schnitzelbank
