    Ubud Itinerary: 4 Days in Ubud for First-Timers

    Hustling, bustling, and full of culture, Ubud is a must on any Bali itinerary. Whether you come for its Eat, Pray, Love connections of just to experience something new, this Ubud itinerary has a little something for everyone! While Ubud isn’t necessarily the kind of place where you need a long to-do list to enjoy yourself (you could just walk among the rice terraces and eat all day and be happy), there are a ton of things to do in the area. And if you only have a few days, then you’ll want to be organized and have at least some idea of what you’re going to do! Here’s my…

    Valle del Chiese Guide: Where to Eat, Sleep, and Play in this Italian Lakes Paradise

    ***Thank you to the Valle del Chiese tourism board and Visit Trentino for hosting me on this trip, as well as to Traverse for helping to make it happen! As always, all opinions are my own.*** Imagine waking up to the beauty of Lake Garda or Lake Como, a gorgeous lake surrounded by cute towns and imposing mountains. Now… imagine the crowds. Yeah, I don’t really want to go there now either. But what if you could have that same amount of beauty with none of the crowds? It’s possible, and the answer is only a short drive away from Lake Garda: Valle del Chiese. This valley, located in Trentino,…

    Cake, Coffee, and Schnitzel // What To Eat in Vienna (+ Where to Eat it)

    Although it might not be the first place that comes to mind, Vienna is definitely in the running for being named foodie heaven. Here’s a guide on what to eat in Vienna and where to eat it–including the best schnitzel and cafes in Vienna. At the beginning of June this year, Daniel and I made a long-awaited trip to Vienna to visit friends who also work at the summer camp where we first met: Leoni, who lives there full time, and Astrid, who was studying abroad in Vienna for the semester. We spent four days there exploring the majestic and lively city and eating as much cake as we possibly…

So when I saw that Free Tours by Foot offered a History and Desserts walking tour of the Eastern Market neighborhood in D.C., I knew I had found my calling as a future tour guide (I am also a huge history nerd). Daniel and I signed up for their…

    The Best Food Markets in Europe

    I don’t know if you’ve figured this out yet or not, but I absolutely love eating when I travel. This isn’t really a new thing. What is a little bit more recent, however, is my love for food markets. After visiting Copenhagen Street Food and the Rotterdam Markthall this spring, all I can think of is finding even more awesome food markets. In order to do that, I decided to compile a list of all of the best food markets in Europe. So, without further ado, here they are – brought to you by probably every travel blogger on the internet! In case you’re looking for something in particular, here’s…

I’ve always wanted to take a cooking class while traveling, but have barely ever been able to find one that I deemed affordable. When I found the Brussels Waffle Workshop, however, I nearly jumped up and did a happy dance. At only €28, I could take an hour and a half long Belgian waffle cooking class – with all-you-can-eat waffles at the end! How could I pass up a crazy deal like…
