When I finally made my way to Rome, I found the cutest little B&B to stay at! It’s not always easy finding places to stay when you are traveling solo. There are a lot of factors to consider, safety, convenience, price, FREE wifi. Vacanze Romane Rooms covered it all ! What a clean, safe, adorable
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
I am the epitome of a girls’ girl. So when I saw the movie ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ starring Julia Roberts, I was inspired to travel solo to Italy! And just like that… I was in Italy. Living out scenes from one of my favorite movies. Walking the streets of Rome, shopping for “bigger pants,” trying
One of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. The care that the Canadians give to their city is admirable. I could spend all day walking the streets and eating in the little cafes. . I spent most of my time in Montreal. Even in the subway, the streets were clean. When I was
I turned 30 and I have to tell you, I wasn’t ready. All my 30 year old friends kept telling me how great it is to be 30. And all my friends in their 20’s kept telling me, when they turn 30, they’re going to be happy, not sad, like me. Well, here’s to celebrating
Ok. I don’t want to be the one to hurt The Bean’s feelings, but what’s with the BEAN? Interesting artwork but what is the purpose of The Bean? It really is amazing to look at. I would advise against touching it. It is one of Chicago’s most well known landmarks and the weather was perfect
The weekend I finally made my way to Chicago, it was the winning weekend for the Cubs and Ireland ! What a fun experience, if I do say so myself. The River was died blue in honor of the Chicago Cubs win! As I was walking the streets of Chicago, I wondered why there were
Florence, Italy. What is there to say about such a beautiful city. It was my first stop on my first European solo adventure. It took me a couple hours to really take in the astonishing medieval architecture. I only had one day in Florence and I wanted to spend it wandering around, getting lost. I
The city of Rome is one very unique in it’s likeness. You have the history of all the old buildings and architecture that captivates the tourists. But I loved walking the around and seeing all the street art and locals. It’s great to see different cultures in their unfeathered atmosphere. My goal for the day was
The city that never sleeps, the city of love, the city with amazing food. . It lives up to every standard. My temptation to learn French move to Paris is very strong (sorry mom)! Amazing food. Amazing wine. Amazing Paris. Flowers, flowers everywhere! Fleurs partout fleurs ! Walking the streets of Paris, there are flower
My family and I have been going to Porto’s since I was a little girl. This authentic Cuban bakery is a staple in California. Their location in Downy makes close to 10,000 sandwiches a day and houses over 250 employees. My favorite is the Cuban sandwiches. Layers of pork, ham, cheese and pickles. Sounds simple,
June 17th 1775, the Battle of Bunker Hill was lost to the British. The British wanted to take over the land surrounding Bunker Hill. And even though they lost, it helped motivate them to keep fighting . The Bunker Hill Monument was fully constructed in 1842 and officially opened to the public a year later.
My time in St. Thomas was one the most enjoyable times of my life.. On the island they drive on the wrong side of the road! Yes that is presumptuous to assume that the driving in America is the right way. They don’t even stop at red lights, they are described as “pink lights, which
That one time I went to San Francisco! Who doesn’t love the most expensive city in the U.S. ?! Well I do! One of my favorite cities I have ever visited. A friend of mine was working in the city so a group of us gathered our belongings and crashed with her for a week.
I have no been to a lot of cities and here are some of my favorites: Boston: What I loved most about this city is that is was historically preserved but life keeps going, changing, moving so quickly! San Francisco: My favorite part about San Fran is the FOOD and WINE! I know that sounds silly
