ANCIENT ROME

ANCIENT ROME

On our last full day in Rome, our travel agent scheduled a tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Thankfully, the Pantheon was a convenient stop en route to our Colosseum tour meet up location. We arrived to that part of town early enough that we were able to walk right inside the Pantheon and look around. Here are a collection of photos from our day spent immersed in Ancient Rome!

MT. VESUVIUS & POMPEII RUINS

MT. VESUVIUS & POMPEII RUINS

Our travel agent booked this day trip for us so we had private transportation from Naples to Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii. I would suggest going this route because you don’t have to navigate the subway system. Plus, you get dropped off higher up the mountain so the hike is shorter. Considering the first part of the hike up Mt. Vesuvius is straight up I was happy to be given a head start. Continue reading “MT. VESUVIUS & POMPEII RUINS”

WHY YOU SHOULD USE A TRAVEL AGENT FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION

WHY YOU SHOULD USE A TRAVEL AGENT FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION

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”

TOUR A CHRISTMAS STORY HOUSE IN CLEVELAND, OHIO

TOUR A CHRISTMAS STORY HOUSE IN CLEVELAND, OHIO

Hello 2019! I can’t believe I’m writing my first post of the new year. The holidays seemed to jet passed me in a blur. I think this year I’ll put up my Christmas decorations BEFORE Thanksgiving like a heathen and everyone else can just deal. Last week, Chris and I went to Ohio to see family and we spent one of our days in Cleveland. This city has A LOT to offer. Here’s what we did during our short visit… Continue reading “TOUR A CHRISTMAS STORY HOUSE IN CLEVELAND, OHIO”

THE BLIND TIGER

THE BLIND TIGER

After we finished our incredible meal at Columbia Restaurant, I was in desperate need of a pick-me-up. We went in search of caffeine and luckily The Blind Tiger was a short walk from the restaurant. They had almond milk (saints be praised) so I ordered a vanilla latte and sat by the window to people watch. Continue reading “THE BLIND TIGER”

COLUMBIA RESTAURANT

COLUMBIA RESTAURANT

We were fortunate enough to find ourselves in sunny Florida for Thanksgiving visiting family. As I’m writing this snow is falling on the ground outside in Tennessee which has me wishing I was back on the beach! While we were there we discovered yet another reason to be grateful that Tampa is just a short plane ride away. Columbia Restaurant is the oldest restaurant in the state of Florida and one of many reasons to add a detour through Ybor City to your next trip. If you happen to miss the incredible tile work on the outside of the building the sheer size of this place is remarkable taking up an entire city block. You can’t miss it!

I encourage each and every one of you to make your own list and start marking things off. You won’t regret it!

WEST SIDE MARKET IN CLEVELAND

WEST SIDE MARKET IN CLEVELAND

Chris and I visited Cleveland, Ohio during Easter weekend and a trip to West Side Market is a must when you’re in the neighborhood. I first visited the market back in April and mentioned it in a blog post¬†here. I was thrilled to be back and once again utterly jealous of the people who live within walking distance of all this delicious food. Our goal was to find the perfect dessert to share on Easter Sunday. Bunny macarons took home the blue ribbon! Aside from decadent treats, West Side Market also offers a staggering variety of meats, cheeses, fresh baked breads, and produce. Let me show you around!
