Trip Back Home- USA

I went home (USA) over the summer for a family reunion, residency for my doctorate, and Nana’s 70th birthday party which was also a fundraising event for the Alzheimer’s Association. While home I went to Louisiana, Florida, Maryland, California, Washington, Oregon, Key West (Florida again), Michigan, Canada/New York -Niagara Falls, and Pennsylvania. I got to cross 2 more states off my bucket list of states which means I only have Hawaii to visit. Without going into a bunch of details about the summer, here you can see a bit of...

Baltics -Including Pig Tongue

Baltics -Including Pig Tongue

After our cruise in Norway, we took a second cruise through the Baltics. This included Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Russia, & Estonia. I said Estonia last because of all of them, I was least excited about going. However, Estonia’s old town is marvelous. Cobblestone paths and narrow streets, cathedrals and on and on… You don’t need a map nor an itinerary to stumble upon such interesting things. Estonia is also where we tried pig ear & tongue. Crazy right? I feel that to really experience a new country, you have...

Norway & Friends Along the Way

Norway & Friends Along the Way

In May, Matt and I took a few cruises. The first cruise was through Norway. We booked it 2 weeks before we it left. Norway is beautiful by boat. One of my favorite things to do was go out on the deck during sail in and sail offs. The fjords were AMAZING. I highly suggest if you want to go visit Norway, that you do so by boat. One of the cool parts about our trip is we get into port and see a RC boat that our friend Austin was working on. We sent him a text and next thing you know we are hanging out. This wouldn’t be the last time we got...

England, Scotland and Daddo

England, Scotland and Daddo

You know how some people come into your life and enrich it by their sheer presence ? That is Daddo. Daddo is Matt’s dad and he came to visit for 2 weeks. We did the marathon while Daddo completed the half marathon. After our run in England, we went to Scotland for a week. Matt and Daddo went golfing, rode ATVs, tried archery, drank whisky and more… I hung back because I wanted to give them a chance for some one on one guy time. One thing we did was “glamping” which is a term used in the UK for Glamorous Camping. You...

Iceland

A few weeks ago Matty and I as well as a few friends, took a trip to Iceland! This country almost feels like another planet. It was pretty cold the time we were there but you can tell that spring isn’t far away. We got to see the Northern Lights as you will see pictured below. Eek!!!   The pictures speak for themselves so I will let you have a...

Ireland

We went to Ireland for a few weeks around Christmas. We drove from Cork to Galway to Dublin to Belfast. In Cork we went to Beauty and the Beast play which was very interactive. We went to the drive in movies. Saw the Blarney Castle and kissed the stone. According to legend, kissing the stone endows the kisser with the gift of the gab. In Galway, we drove along the coast and went to the Cliffs of Moher. It was a lot of exploring and site seeing. We spent Christmas in Dublin. Everything was shut down on Christmas day so we made a lot of new...

More Christmas Markets

More Christmas Markets

As I said earlier, I LOVE the German Christmas Markets so you would be seeing more. So here is more with a bit of details about the markets we visited in 3 countries. I definitely think Germany takes the cake for knowing how to do the markets right. If you ever get the chance, going to Germany for the Christmas markets is a MUST DO for anyone that likes to travel and experience new things. A Christmas market can get anyone in the spirit of the holiday.   Cologne, Germany- This was our first stop and we couldn’t have asked for...
