Ah Rome. I love it so. After spending a few weeks in Western Europe and then a few days in Eastern Europe, we flew to Rome and got our first taste of Southern Europe. After the tidy streets of Paris and London, and the ancient feeling in Prague and Krakow, the chaos of Rome was […]

Sean and I have yet to live in a place with weather that is drastically different from home. Although, since Wisconsin is currently experiencing winter in it’s most brutal form with temperatures below 0 degrees Fahrenheit and blizzards dumping 8-12 inches of snow every other day, I guess you could say the craziest weather we’ve […]

Our final stop on our little Europe trip was Vienna. And for me, it began with an allergic reaction on the train. We had bought some marzipan in Budapest, and my pistachio-flavored deliciousness must have come in contact with some peanuts along the way. Since I was stuck on a train, I quickly popped a […]

One of the most important celebrations in Georgia is ringing in the New Year. It’s a truly unique celebration that mixes European and Asian practices in a way that feels distinctly Georgian. I think the best way I can describe it is somewhat organized chaos. It’s the right amount of unruly where everyone in the […]
