Despite having been to Washington D.C. more than five times now, I had never seen the Capitol Building. So despite my most recent trip there being more focused on finding hidden gems, I knew that we had to rectify this tragedy. Thus, on my final full day in DC, Daniel and I signed up for another of Free Tours by Foot’s walking tours. Unfortunately, this tour was a little bit less food-based, but…

There are lots of places in the world that I would gladly live in if I had the money. Georgetown — easily my favourite neighborhood in the Washington D.C. area — is one of those places. I had my first introduction to Georgetown more than a year ago, when my boyfriend and I met up with a friend of ours from the German language immersion summer camp that we work at (Which…

After a ridiculously long day in Boulder, we decided to sleep in the next morning and get a late start to the following day. Of course, this probably wasn’t the most strategic thing we could have done, given that the following day was Father’s Day, but we were exhausted and not exactly thinking straight. Oops. Garden of the Gods We arrived at Garden of the Gods a little after noon and stopped…

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…

Aside from eating my way around Belgium, I also had a few other tricks up my sleeve for exploring the country. In Brussels, for example, I made it a point to seek out as many of the famous Brussels Comic Strip Walls as I could. Sure, I could have just visited a few of the famous ones. But where would the fun in that have been? Nowhere, I tell you. If I’m…

Belgian chocolate? Yes please. Belgian waffles? Yum. Mussels in Brussels? You betcha. I found myself in Belgium for three days this May when I was on my way to visit an old exchange student in Rotterdam after my exams were finished. I had the choice of flying into either Brussels or Amsterdam. Eventually, I landed on Brussels because it was cheaper and I would be flying…
