Wine, Food, and The Golden Gate Bridge !

We started off the morning with a hearty breakfast at Homeskillet, thanks to my Yelp app. We loved the originality of breakfast at the counter and an open stove. The open stove made for an incredibly hot restaurant serving fresh, homemade breakfast. I went for the Eggs Benedict with tater tots for only $9. Hello, winner! We made my way to

Straight Outta Venezia !

Rainy days in Venezia. Bridges, bridges galore ! The “City of Canals,” just in case you were wondering. It’s illegal to drive in Venice. But don’t worry, you can take a water taxi through and around the entire city! “Gothic” style architecture takes your breath away. As I walked the cobble stone streets, I was

Bourges, France is about 2 hours south of Paris by train. The train ride costs approximately 32 Euro each way (coach of course). I walked into a town and immediately fell in love.

Saturday Night in Paris

One of my favorite pass times while traveling is to get lost in the city. In Paris, the city that never sleeps, everyone else seemed to enjoy the same pass time. There were so many people walking around, dinning in cafes, playing games in the parks, drinking beer by the river. It was wonderful. I

I Brought Sand to the Beach Cause My Beach is Better

As a child, my grandmother wouldn’t let me collect seashells. She believed that people go to the beach and tell the ocean their problems. The seashells would keep their problems and if you took the seashells, you would be taking their problems home with you. I happily left all the seashells on the beach while I
