Getting to see Positano in person was easily one of the most surreal experiences of my life. I’ve been determined to stop saying “some day” and start buying plane tickets and making plans. In this case we had to get a plane ticket, a train ticket, a subway ticket, and a bus ticket. The trip from Rome is not for the faint of heart but finding my feet in Positano made it all worth it. Chris and I decided it was our favorite day so that’s why I’m starting the guides here. Enjoy! Continue reading “POSITANO GUIDE”
I’m sharing our travel itinerary for Italy including lots of photos! I’m breaking down 10 days in 6 cities and giving you the highlights to expand into individual posts later. I got fancy with the graphic design so let me know if you like this format for future posts.
We fit SO MUCH into 10 short days that included travel from city to city. Do you have any questions about the trip you’d like me to answer in future posts? I’ll have at least one post per city but some will have more (i.e. Rome). I thought I’d also make a post of all the things I wish I knew before our trip. Let me know what would be interesting to you in the comments! Thanks for reading.
Buongiorno from Tennessee! I have a dozen or so Italy posts to share with you but today I wanted to start by saying how seamless it was to plan our trip with a travel agent. Kelsey over at Hearten L+E put together our dream itinerary for a 10 day trip to Italy that came in UNDER BUDGET. That’s including flights, transfers, train rides, a cooking class, and tours in Venice, Rome, and Pompeii. Continue reading “WHY YOU SHOULD USE A TRAVEL AGENT FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION”
October is finally here which means Oktoberfest is almost over! It ends on Sunday the 6th but don’t worry if you can’t make it to Munich this year. Knoxville has the best place to celebrate Oktoberfest (in a CASTLE no less) and I’ve got pictures to prove it. Continue reading “OKTOBERFEST IN KNOXVILLE”
The newest restaurant in Bristol caught my eye while walking down State Street during Rhythm and Roots last weekend. Delta Blues is a BBQ restaurant that feels a little like Memphis and Nashville right here in Bristol. My husband is known as the brisket king in our family so I knew it wouldn’t be long before we ended up at Delta Blues for dinner. Let me show you around. Continue reading “DELTA BLUES”
Bristol’s Rhythm & Roots Reunion is a music and art festival held every 3rd weekend in September on the state line between Tennessee and Virginia. Since we’ve lived in Bristol for the last 7 years we’ve been quite a few times and seen incredible headliners and talented artists from all over the world. One year my sister set up an art tent to sell her pottery which gave me a unique opportunity to see the festival from the other side. This year was much more relaxed because we decided to go for one day instead of all 3. Continue reading “RHYTHM & ROOTS 2019”
Did you know there is a “you pick” flower field in Sevierville? As a self-proclaimed anthophile (flower lover) I’ve spent my fair share of sunny days surrounded by delicate petals and buzzing bees. As a Sevierville naitive I couldn’t wait to tell you all about this small business with deep roots. Continue reading “FIND ME AMONG THE FLOWERS”
Girls night out has been scheduled at Graze for months now and after 2 failed attempts the third time was the charm! I’m excited to see how downtown Sevierville looks in the near future. How great would it be to have more restaurants and maybe even (Heaven help us) a brewery? Continue reading “GRAZE BURGERS”
I don’t get out of bed early for just any occasion but I happily made an exception for hot air balloons. They make me feel like I’m in a story book or a fairy tale with their rainbow colors and endless possibilities. Continue reading “BREAKFAST WITH THE BALLOONS”
I am thrilled to share that we celebrated not one but two special occasions last weekend in Nashville. I graduated with my Master’s Degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Vanderbilt and on the same day Chris turned 30! After graduation we were looking for a place to escape the pouring rain and toast to the birthday boy so we headed to Peabody and 6th for a tour of Ole Smoky’s newest location- affectionately referred to as “Mashville”.
