New travel section!

We recently did a little spring cleaning here on the blog. Switched some things around. Graduated to Adobe Creative Suite and changed all our graphics (which were originally made on Mircosoft Paint!) Added new sections like the Guide and the Quick & Dirty Guide.

We also created a Travel page, where you can click through to blog posts about where we've been (my favourites are Marrakech, Morocco & Venice!)

Speaking of travel, we're cooking up a little European road trip this year. Have you ever done one? Do you have any recommendations? Cities not to be missed, the best museums, the most incredible places to eat?

Or maybe you've done a road trip somewhere else. Where? Best experiences, worst? Road trip tips?

Talk to us, we love to hear from you.

  1. Love the new look :) I think you should go to Prague and Budapest [if you haven't been before]. Both cities are beautiful and really cheap! So food and shopping is great. Well Czech food isn't so yummy but I loved the Hungarian. The open air street markets are just so charming. I found amazing art in Prague! I'm sure wherever you decide to go will be great.

  2. Hi!
    I found your blog by chance, while peeking others and I decided to check it out! I’m glad I did it, because I am really delighted with yours. It's beautiful, well structured, interesting… and it has completely got me hooked. I think we're going to get along just fine! ;) I’m your new follower and I’d be very pleased if you like my blog enough to follow it as well!
    I wish you lots of success and will surely come back often
    kisses

  3. Come back to Spain and do a southern Spain and Portugal road trip! Or better yet, go to Croatia and Slovenia so I can live vicariously through you!

  4. My favorite off-the-beaten track spots are:

    Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland (it's a valley with something like 70 waterfalls; it's quiet; the food is wonderful; and there are hiking trails everywhere, leading to ski towns and fields of wildflowers and even back to Interlocken)

    Tavernelle, Italy (it's a small town in the Tuscan countryside, south of Florence. If you go in the summer, you'll be driving by fields of sunflowers and anytime you'll be surrounded by vineyards. Go explore the church ruins outside town, enjoy cute restaurants in the town square, and brush up your Italian--no one here speaks English)

    1. 70 foot waterfalls, that sounds incredible! Thanks Gigi! And we're always looking for a good excuse to brush up on our Italian.
