Five magical villages nestled into the rugged coastline of the Italian Riviera make up the Cinque Terre. If you’ve never heard of this place, there’s a good chance you’ve seen pictures of the colorful seaside towns as they are often featured on the front cover of Italy guidebooks and fill the pinterest boards of Italian wanderlusters (like me!). Whenever people ask me where to visit on a trip to Italy, Cinque Terre is usually high on my recommendation list. While…

Venice, Italy – The Perfect Itinerary for First-Timers

Venice is a must-see city in Italy and truly one of the most amazing places in the world. Venice can also be very crowded, extremely hot, and difficult to find an excellent, yet still affordable meal. Don’t let that scare you off though, there is no other city like it and no matter how many photos you’ve seen of the canals, bridges, and colorful buildings, you have to experience the city yourself to understand just how incredible it is.

Postcards from Provence – Roussillon

Several years ago I read the book ‘A Year in Provence’ by Peter Mayle. He also wrote ‘A Good Year’ which became a movie starring Russell Crowe & Marion Cotillard. Not the best movie ever, but the scenery of Provence is to die for!  Flash forward to this summer and I knew we had to spend a few days in the Luberon region where he spent a lot of his time.
