Fiesole, a hidden gem of Florence.

Tucked into the hills surrounding Florence is the small town of Fiesole. Fiesole is for the seasoned Florence traveler, who isn’t just passing through for a couple of days, but spending a good amount time getting to intimately know the city.  It’s a nice change of pace from the center of Florence, which is always […]

New adventures in my old city.

I know, you must be thinking…having been to Florence so many times, how can I possibly not yet be bored with it all? And while that answer is simple, because I unconditionally love the city, I did get to try out a bunch of new things this trip. Florence is a place that can’t even be […]

My favorite gelato spots in Florence.

My goal for my next trip to Firenze is to eat more gelato. Seriously. I have this hilarious habit of filling up on pasta, cheese, or pizza, causing me to short change gelato – which is a crime. This past vacation I only got it twice during my whole trip! Unacceptable. Here is my short […]

Exploring the Rose Gardens and San Miniato al Monte.

After visiting Santa Croce on our last day in Florence, we still had a packed day of exploring ahead of us. It was early enough in the morning for us to go do something before lunch, so we walked over Ponte all Grazie into San Niccolò. Through the local neighborhood and up the hill leading […]

Soaking up the sun in Santa Croce.

The winter blues really got the best of me this year. Even though the snow was modest and didn’t completely paralyze the city of Boston, I still felt this looming empty gray feeling consume me. It was challenging to feel any kind of inspiration all winter long. Either it was too cold to go out […]

The best eats in Firenze.

Having been to Florence for a semester and now two additional week long vacations, I have been able to eat at a lot of different places around the city. From panini shops, to cafes, trattorias, and gelaterias, I have my go-to spots for everything. There are times when I wonder if I should branch out […]

Headed back to my second home!

In a few days I will be jet-setting back over to Europe! Destination…FLORENCE!  I’ve tried to keep this trip under wraps and most of family and friends don’t even know I am going. I thought it would be fun to surprise everyone since this was kind of a last minute and totally impulsive decision. I’m going […]

Horsing around in Western Mass.

Ever since my best friend, Natalie, and I watched the Unbranded documentary up on Netflix…we have been obsessed with becoming the main characters of the film, and of course we’ve become obsessed with horses. In an attempt to fulfill our wildest fantasies of riding horseback from Mexico to Canada, we spent a nice brisk Saturday morning […]

Staying cozy in Hollis, New Hampshire.

Mid-October was peak season in New Hampshire for foliage. We received a lot of rain in the coming days that unfortunately quickly took all the bright beautiful colors away. However about half of the trees hadn’t turned yet, so some areas got super lucky with another wave of autumn foliage. This second round wasn’t as […]

Monet, Modern, and the MFA

I started early on my New Year’s resolution this year. It was about time I started making more time for me. Doing things that I enjoy; travel, food, day plans, even if it means enjoying an experience solo. I must say, it’s been working pretty well and my new found freedom has allowed me to try […]

Estadio Tapas in Washington D.C.

Ever since I came back from Portland, Oregon in late August, I have had this weird craving for tapas. It may be because I am obsessed with the cute portioned sized plates, developed my love of specialty gin drinks (which every exceptional tapas place has), or have just been severely in the mood for Spanish flare.

Last minute surprise in Washington D.C.

This past summer has been a complete reorganization; job, apartment, personal life, you name it. But I’m not the only one feeling the lasting chaos from summer, so is my sister, who is moving all the way from Tucson, Arizona to Washington D.C. She has also been graced with finding a new place to live, […]

Quebec Candids.

A few of my favorite snaps from my travels to Quebec earlier in the summer. Canada is a beautiful summer destination – the weather was perfect, downtown area bustling, all with delicious eats and refreshing drinks. Quebec City is definitely back on my list of places to visit again, along with the beautiful rural areas I have yet […]

Whale watching on Boston Harbor.

This past weekend Tom and I ventured out into the open ocean on Boston Harbor Cruise’s whale watch. Not only had I never been on a whale watch, but I also have an innate fear of  boats, open ocean, basically anything related to water – I blame the Titanic. So this was an excellent opportunity […]

Zipping through Canada’s waterfalls.

We couldn’t resist a little thrill-seeking adventure while in Quebec. Definitely probably one of the craziest, most stupid things I have ever done according to my Mother’s standards, but I’ll be honest, I would probably do it again in a heartbeat. Instead of eagerly rushing into the old city during our first morning in Quebec, […]

Breakfast in Quebec.

Our Saturday in Quebec was stunning. The sun was shining and the weather was absolutely perfect. Instead of staying directly in the city, we stayed on the other side of the St. Lawrence River in Levis, which we adored. Levis reminded me of where I grew up – suburban, quaint, and super easy to find our […]

New Hampshire Wine Tour: Sweet Baby

I’m going to be blunt here, the best part about our visit to Sweet Baby Vineyard was the cheese and Club crackers. They gave us a huge portion of gourmet sharp cheddar for the price, and it was delicious but was also an excellent companion to consuming these absolutely over sugared wines. However, let’s back track a little and […]
