Walla Walla, WA, United States for K Vintners visit

Stayed at the Marc and went to K vintners for a long long tasting. I don’t like to do too many wineries at once and prefer to enjoy the afternoon at a single one. K Vintners also has a great tasting room, but if you can get to the winery, that’s a more fun way…

Blenheim, Marlborough, New Zealand for Wine

Drove from Nelson to Blenheim for 3 days of incredible wine in New Zealand. Best wineries to visit are Kim Crawford, Herzog and Villa Maria. The food at Herzog was absolutely fantastic. The picture with the cheese tray was the start of a 7 course meal at Herzog. Look for hotels and airbnbs near Renwick….

Seoul, South Korea for Gyeongbok Palace

For a good cultural experience in Seoul, you must visit Gyeongbok Palace! It is located in the, as the locals would say, “Government” part of town so there is always plenty going on. The palace is located directly in front of a large Federal Square called Gwanghwamun Plaza and some Federal buildings. It is also…

Kotor, Montenegro for Mediterranean escape

Kotor or Montenegro as a whole is one of those places that you see a photo of, not only are your initial reactions to disbelief what you are seeing but you start thinking in your head things like “Well, do not get your hopes up cause its not going to look like this in person”…

Rotterdam, Netherlands for Architecture Wonder

When I arrive in Rotterdam I did not expect the architecture to feel so futuristic or inspired. I think Rotterdam is one of Europe’s most exhilarating cities right now. There are tons of insane and amazing things to do such as inner-city canal surging, a un-touched art scene, and like the rest of Europe, great…

Seattle Getaway to Vashon: What we did

Vashon Island is about a 20 minute ferry outside Seattle, but it may as well be a hundred miles away From Seattle, we drove 15 minutes from downtown to the busy commuter ferry that runs from West Seattle to Vashon,  Once we got off the ferry, we felt totally at peace and relaxed!  If you’re…

Budapest, Hungary for Visiting Parliament

This was my first experience at a true parliament building. Let me preface by saying, I think Budapest is one of the most fun, architecturally amazing, and just all around best cities in Europe. Because of this, you can walk around the city and see amazing things al day long. But the parliament building is…

Pittsburgh for Top 5 Steel City Pizzas

Whatever kind of pizza person you are, Pittsburgh has a slice for you. Whether you’re into gourmet crusts with high brow ingredients, or you just want a simple slice of sauce and cheese, there’s a slice in the city that will make your belly happy. There’s a hole in the wall spot serving up great…

Bologna, Italy for Bolognese Tagliatelle

I must start by saying, growing up bolognese tagliatelle was my absolute favorite and I havent been able to quite kick the habit since. The first thing I thought of when I arrived in Bologna was BOLOGNESE! It is a must try while in Bologna… I mean this is the birthplace of the bolognese. I…

Prague, Czech Republic for Beer (Klasterni Pivovar Strahov)

Brought to you by:   When visiting Prague, I was told that the beer is cheaper than water. Well as this is not entirely true, it is pretty close just about every where you go! You can walk through Prague as I did from Sir Toby’s Hostel to the other side of the Prague castle…

Rostock, Germany for Cold Gothic Adventure

Visiting the Baltic Sea coast in sub-zero weather probably wasn’t one of my brightest ideas, but – being a sucker for the Northern European seaside – when the offer to go for a day-trip to Rostock came up, I accepted it in a heartbeat. It was probably the gloomy weather in combination with the pointy,…

Timișoara, Timiș County, Romania for A Weekend Escape

Western part of Romania is often overlooked in favor of the immense architecture of Bucharest or the Dracula-related tourism in the Carpathian region. Still, the Banat area (where Timişoara is located) is perfectly pleasant and, to be honest, we had underestimated just how fun and interesting it was going to be to just roam around…

Vis, Croatia for Ultimate Relaxing and Cave Exploring

For most of the 20th century, the island of Vis generally served as a naval base for then-Yugoslav army. As of early to mid-90s, it started opening up more for the general public, becoming increasingly popular among the regional and international crowds alike. Even though in recent years Croatia on the whole became a bit…

Llandudno, United Kingdom for North Wales Fun

North Wales used to be a quite popular resort area among the British in the Victorian era and even later, until the point when airfare became significantly cheaper, prompting Brits to gradually start vacationing in places like Spain, Greece or Italy. This decline in tourist numbers coupled up with domestic industry dying a slow death…

Berlin, Germany for Mauerpark Flea Market

So you went to Berlin and already visited the historical must-sees – the Museum Island, East Side Gallery, Checkpoint Charlie and all those other important and insightful places. Now it’s time to unwind a bit and enjoy your Sunday morning and maybe even pick up some cheap gems along the way. Mauerpark is located in…

Seoul, South Korea for Hongdae Shenanigans

If you’re planning on visiting Seoul, you’ll probably notice right away that the city never seems to stop to take a break – even the shopping malls and non-dingy restaurants are open until 4-5 in the morning. Even so, one area stands out as the epicenter of fun (especially if you’re on a budget) –…

Skopje, Macedonia (FYROM) for Bizarre (Neo)-Neoclassical Architecture

Skopje is a city that is practically at my doorstep, but one that I had never bothered to visit before. So in an attempt to tick off all the “former Yugoslavia capitals” boxes, I decided to visit it one weekend, and oh my – the experience definitely made me wonder why I hadn’t done so…

Serbia, Uvac for Riverboat Ride and Vulture Watching

Always up for a quick mountainous adventure, one weekend we decided to visit the Uvac River region, known for it crazy meanders and stunning nature in general. The package we opted for included a six-hour boat ride and an overnight stay in little cottages rented out by a local family. Arriving sometime around noon, our…

Šibenik, Croatia for SuperUho Music Festival

So the idea of an indie-rock music festival is usually not the first thing to come to mind when someone mentions Mediterranean resorts – but it seems SuperUho festival is here to prove us wrong. Held in the awe-inspiring St. Michael Fortress located on top of the town, it gave the shows a novel and…

Perast, Montenegro for A Quiet Getaway

Perast is a little hidden gem on the Montenegrin coast, often overshadowed by the bustling, tourist-laden towns of Kotor, Budva and Herceg Novi. It has a pharmacy, about two or three shops and a total of 349 residents. During the summer season, from June to September, Perast has a strict ban on vehicles, so you…
