The Ultimate Paris Bucket List

In my opinion, Paris is one of the best city for a bucket list because there are so many sights to see, foods to try, and cultural experiences to enjoy. I’ve laid out my eat-see-do list for Paris, but I’d love to hear what you would add in the comments below! WHAT TO DO: Climb the Eiffel Tower Picnic in Jardin Du Luxembourg Window shop Avenue Champs-Élysées Wink at the Mona Lisa in the Louvre Wander through Tuileries Garden Take…

Weekend Wanderlust + Feeling Fall!

Happy Weekend! With kids going back to school there is a lot of excitement in the air at this time of year! In the words of Taylor Swift “This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change.” I have always felt like September is your opportunity for a fresh start and the beginning of a new year (much more so than the actual new year). And always feel a little nostalgic for new school supplies (anyone else…

Weekend Wanderlust + Roman Holiday

Happy (LONG) Weekend! I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend planned! I’ve just finished up the Rome Travel Itinerary (check it out HERE if you have a trip planned to Italy soon) and I couldn’t help but think about having my own Roman Holiday this weekend! If you haven’t seen the movie, it’s a classic comedy about a Princess tired of her daily duties who sneaks out to explore Rome. Needless to say, a weekend of indulging in things…

How to Order Coffee in Italy + Will Starbucks Succeed in Milan?

Will Starbucks Succeed in Milan? Why aren’t there any Starbucks in Italy? It’s a question that comes up often when visiting as most travelers are used to seeing one on every corner these days. I have always felt a sense of pride for Italy that they’ve held off for so long (that is until next month). Don’t get me wrong, a White Mocha from Starbucks is one of my favorite indulgences, but I think it’s safe to say even the…

Weekend Wanderlust + Italian Summer

Happy Weekend! I recently came across a quote by George Clooney on Italy: “I think people in Italy live their lives better than we do. It’s an older country, and they’ve learned to celebrate dinner and lunch, whereas we sort of eat as quickly as we can to get through it.” And I have to say – I completely agree! When Mike and I briefly lived in Rome, we loved how the Italian families in our neighborhood would set up…

13 Helpful Things To Know Before You Visit New York City

They say one of the easiest ways to spot a tourist in New York is when someone stops to look up at the skyline. I’m guessing this is because New York is fast-paced and residents are always on the move, so there is no time to admire the skyscrapers. I’m not one to get too obsessed over blending in or making sure I don’t look like a tourist (after all – I usually AM a tourist!), but I do think…
