Recently, I started sharing about our trip to Ireland (and other countries in Europe), that we went on this past June. I’ve already told you a little about our first big tour, that included Howth Harbour and Malahide Castle. Today, I’m giving you all of the details on a fun afternoon, at the Dublin Zoo!Read More
Ireland was always on my bucket list. The beauty of the landscape and the historic castles, really appealed to me. When we planned this trip, I knew I wanted to take in as much as we could, in the short time that we had. Our first tour, was a half-day North Coast trip. Last week, I shared about Howth Harbour and some delicious seafood chowder, that we enjoyed. Today’s post is all about our tour of Malahide Castle.Read More
It’s Friday! That means it’s time for another travel post! Last week, I shared a more somber post about our last adventure, in France: Visiting the D-Day Beaches in Normandy. Today, I am moving onto Ireland! After flying from Paris to Dublin, we hit the ground running. Our first day trip, was a castle tour. Before I get to the castle, I wanted to share some about the town we stopped at for lunch: Howth Harbour.Read More
There were parts of our last trip to Europe, that weren’t as exciting or lighthearted, as others. I enjoy writing about the fun stuff! It makes me feel like I am reliving the experience. Today, I am going to share about a tour, that wasn’t necessarily “fun” and “exciting”, like Disneyland Paris or Bayeux, but it was eye-opening and it taught me lessons that are impossible to learn from history books. This post is about our last stop in France: The D-Day Beaches in Normandy.
Hey y’all! I’m back with another Friday travel post! I’m picking up, right where I left off, last week. After our day in Disneyland Paris, we hopped on a train and headed to a beautiful, small town: Bayeux, France. I loved so much about our last Europe trip, that it is hard for me to pick a favorite spot. However, if I had to make a decision, I would say that Bayeux takes the win. It was the exact opposite of Paris. Where Paris was bustling and busy, Bayeux was quiet and slow. When Paris was up all night, Bayeux was in bed by 9 PM. It’s like comparing my 20 year old self, to my 30 year old self!
I could continue to wax poetic about Bayeux all day, but instead, let me tell some of my favorite things to do in this beautiful little town.
It’s time for another Friday travel post! Two weeks ago, I shared about our arrival in Paris, and how we spent our anniversary there. We limited our “touristy” activities and just enjoyed the city. Since, we actually had two full days, in Paris, we decided to spend the second day at a magical place…Disneyland! It’s probably not the first choice for Americans visiting Paris, but because this was our second trip, we wanted to do things a little different. Today, I’m excited to share all about our day in Disneyland Paris!
I can’t believe it is already November! Here, in Tennessee, the leaves are various shades of orange, red, and yellow. It’s my favorite time of year. I enjoy the crisp, yet comfortable temperatures, and the gorgeous colors of Fall. But, that also means that Christmas is just around the corner. Believe it or not, it’s already time to start thinking about gift giving, which is why I have started to create a few guides, to help you out. Last week I share one for your coffee-loving friends. Today, I am going to share a few great gift options, for the Travel Addict, in your life!
I will always prefer the small towns to the big cities, but there is just something about Paris. When we were planning our U.K. and Europe trip, we knew that we had to time it, so that we could celebrate our anniversary in Paris! After all, it was one of the first spots we travelled to together. In 2015, we spent part of our honeymoon in the city of love. We decided to recreate parts of that honeymoon trip, by finding the same restaurant and visiting the Eiffel Tower. Today, I’m going to share the highlights of our first day in Paris, on our third wedding anniversary.
Hey y’all! It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another travel post! Today, I am sharing more about our most recent trip to the U.K. and Europe. If you missed out on the first few posts in this series, you can start from the beginning, with our first destination: London, England. If you are all caught up, then keep reading, to learn all about our day trip to Oxfordshire and Blenheim Palace.
On our most recent trip to London, we had the opportunity to go on a couple of day trips, outside of the city. One of those trips, wast to Stonehenge. This is definitely one of the more touristy spots to visit in England, but I still think it is worth seeing for yourself. Today, I’m going to share about our experience, visiting Stonehenge, and maybe convince you to add it to your list.
