Hiking the Grand Tetons

While International travel will be on hold now. It is a great time to explore the United States making Jackson Hole and hiking the Grand Tetons the perfect covid getaway. While I will miss my European pastries, architecture, and slower pace of life, it forces us to explore our home. Sometimes we forget how beautiful the United States is because we travel...

Skagit Valley

Tulip Town Spring is almost here and all of us are rejoicing in Knoxville because it has been so incredibly wet this winter. One of our favorite recent spring trips was to Skagit Valley, Washington. For years I wanted to see the tulips in Amsterdam, but heard the accommodations can be very pricey. After a recent trip to Amsterdam, I can say with 100% certainty that...

Saigon Vietnam

Saigon, Vietnam sightseeing There are so many ways to describe Vietnam especially Saigon. We noticed the locals referred to it as Saigon, while we all referred to it as Ho Chi Minh. The easiest way I can describe it is organized chaos!! This was my 32nd country, I visited and the most unique one to date. Vietnam was never on my list to be honest. My grandparents went...

Christmas Markets Near Ramstein

I love Christmas, but last year was our first visit to German Christmas markets. The perfect place to stay for military members is Ramstein AFB. A friend suggested that we go and we enjoyed it. If you love Hallmark movies, you can imagine yourself right in the middle of a set. Close your eyes and imagine lights being strung up everywhere, delicious foods, and mulled...

Vienna Gluten-Free Guide

Gluten-Free Mousse in Vienna Cafe Of course as with any vacation, I have to find gluten-free for my celiacs kiddo! Check out my Bucharest Gluten Free Guide if visiting there.

Two Days in London with Kids

We love Delta One A few months ago the girls and I flew on a surprise trip to London. Originally we planned on meeting my husband in Ireland, but he diverted. We decided to make the most of our time in London. While I wouldn’t recommend just two days in London because there is so much to see, I am going to share with you how to do two days in London with kids...

Bulgaria: A Family Friendly Destination

Looking out over the Sea I love off the beaten path places (remember Romania), I see travel bloggers who all go to the same places, and I want something different. I crave undiscovered places. But I also want places that are family friendly because of my kids. Bulgaria checked off those boxes. While it is gaining popularity amongst the Europeans, most Americans still...

Family Friendly Vienna in Four Days

Cobblestone streets in Vienna School is wrapping up and spring is here. Today on the blog, one of my favorite cities-Vienna, Austria! Hands down the most family friendly city to date for us. Interestingly enough, Vienna at one time was not geared towards children at all. But it was a fan favorite for my kids, the Haus der Musik,the Schonbrunn Palace, Stephansdom, the...

How to (Successfully) Travel Gluten Free

Delta was amazing at trying to find GF foods! About 5 years ago, my little Minion was diagnosed with celiac disease which changed our lifestyle completely. I used to mill all of our wheat and make bread from scratch! We ate homemade rolls, buns, pretzels, but our favorite was Friday night pizza-from scratch. When the diagnosis came I continued to make it for the rest...
