ahhhhhh, this photo describes me perfectly!

I wish I could do it more often but traveling can be very expensive, even though I’m pretty sure I could plan any trip within a reasonable budget. I try to take at least 1 good trip a year. Last year I went to Europe in May. We found a cruise from Barcelona that was priced really cheap – I mean like 5 days under $300 a person cheap! We got to stay a total of 2 days in Barcelona and spent one day each in Cannes, Pisa/Florence & Rome. It was the most amazing trip I have ever been on and I am totally in LOVE with Italy because of it and feel the exact opposite of Cannes after spending a few hours there lol

I don’t think words can ever truly describe the experience traveling gives you.

This is the plan for our September 2013 trip:


Budapest –> Prague –> Berlin

(maybe with a quick stop in Dresden)

We will take trains in between each city and we will do it all in a total of 11 days!

We basically planned this trip ending in Berlin so we can partake in some Oktoberfest activities! 🙂

Any suggestions for hotel/restaurant recommendations and must see’s?


I had the amazing opportunity to visit a few different countries in Europe a few months back – Barcelona being one of them. Even though my visit was short, I fell in love with this vibrant city and all that it has to offer. Spain is known to have some of the best food in the world so I did some research to find out where I should eat while there. I came across numerous 5 star reviews on a place called: Tickets. With a reservation waitlist that is as long as 2 months, I knew I had to get in to this Tapas Bar. Long story short – we got a reservation and this place is all that it was hyped up to be and more. It was hands down one of the most memorable stops on the whole vacation and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Barcelona.

I hope to someday return to Barcelona and when I do – I will definitely be heading back to this place. Have you ever been to Barcelona? If so, what other restaurants do you recommend?
