    Lake Como

    We went to Lake Como a month ago as a celebration of our 5 year anniversary and a year of being parents! We were lucky enough to be able to leave Leia with grandparents. We did a trip to Italy including Tuscany, Cinque Terre, Florence outlet malls and ending with Lake Como. Stay tuned for my posts on the other places, but I had to start out with my favorite- LAKE COMO- it is definitely underrated and gets overlooked due to the Amalfi coast, but in my opinion, Lake Como is a luxurious paradise and beats Amalfi (check out my post on Positano from a few years ago)! StayWe were…

Of course, we walked everywhere- but things in Barcelona are more spread out than other places, so be prepared to walk alot if you choose to walk everywhere! From the food to sightseeing and to shopping (of course), it had the best. We had 2 full days in Barcelona so we…

    Journey Through Capetown, South Africa

    I had heard Capetown, South Africa was gorgeous, but I was in for a surprise when I saw exactly how beautiful. A few months ago, my hubby and I went on our annual two week international trip to Capetown (he has cousins there so it was nice to stay with them, 4 days), Spain (Madrid (1 day), Seville (2 days), Barcelona (3 days)) and Milan (2 days). ¬†First off, the flight to Capetown is a whopping 27 hour flight that we had broken down with a stop in Doha, Qatar with a 9 hour layover which was perfect because we got to do a free city tour provided by Qatar…
