Delicious Distillery

So the distillery was a last minute option.  It had been throwing it down all day and squelchy socks and shoes just aren’t my thing. But my husband Jason really wanted to go here.  So we did. Only a few minutes drive in the car, the building is in a quieter and more secluded area…

St. Augustine

There are many things to see and do in this beautifully historic town, but here is just a short list of what myself and my hubby saw this past weekend.  It is only two hours from Orlando, definitely worth the drive, and we stayed in an Airbnb home that greeted us like we had been…

Billy Goat Trail, MD

Originally my gut told me not to do this.  I am not a morning person, and I’m not known for being a hiker with these short legs of mine. I may add that I was in no way prepared for this either. As a child; my daily routine would be waking at 5am to be…

Love Alexandria

So apart from the fact that Alexandria town is just like a mini London, the heartiness and effortless beauty is what makes this place so quirky and special. Very colonial and reminiscent of England, very much like home. Only a short distance away from DC, this little town is worth visiting if only just to…

Falling into Virginia

“Autumn paints in colors that summer has never seen”. Unknown Autumn really has a place in my heart. I have beautiful memories of fall and the way it makes me feel. There is something so adolescent about fall as it allows you to jump in the leaves and not be ashamed of your age. Well,…

Pantheon & Piazza Navona

On the day we visited Rome it was torrential rain. We thought by going inside the Pantheon we would have a small window to dry off a little. As we entered we walked to the right taking in all of the historical artefacts laying there. Free to enter so pretty crowded and the guards stand…

Fontana di Trevi

Ok so i totally screwed up and I am going to come clean right now. I had no idea I had to throw a coin in and make a wish. What a dummy. Did you visit the fountain and not know this either? Well you’re not alone. If you did happen to make a wish…

Piazza Venezia & Altare della Patria

Piazza Venezia and Altare della Patria, only a ten minute walk from Colosseo so off we went. En route we passed the Roman ruins in the main areas of the city. Sounds simple, but it was not. When is it ever?  The clouds opened up and decided to down pour right as we began walking….

Colosseo & Arco di Costantino.

Roma, Italia.   The largest amphitheatre in the world and the most most impressive monument of Rome. Crazy to think this architecture has been stood since 70 A.D. Known back in the day for the gladiator games and animal fights, I’m so happy that this faded out. Two thirds of this monument fell to neglect…

Basilica di San Pietro.

Basilica di San Pietro or St.Peter’s Basilica of Rome is an Italian Renaissance church built within the Vatican City. As soon as you walk down the street towards the Vatican, this is what you see ahead as well as the dome top. One of the holiest shrines designed, it is said to be “the greatest…
