A space for me to record memories and share stories from our European travels and life in London. Cheers!

Three Days in Prague

After hosting our first visitor of the year in London, the three of us headed to Prague for the long weekend over the Easter holidays. Prague had been on our shortlist for a while and we had a fantastic weekend exploring the rich history of the city and its beautiful architecture — and drinking plenty of Czech beer. The city is also famous for its Easter markets, which were nearly as large as the Christmas markets I’ve visited in other cities and made the whole city feel like a celebration.

Weekend in Burgundy

One of the most exciting parts about moving to London is getting first-time visitors and at the end of March, I finally got to experience my mom’s first trip to Europe. We spent a few days in London and Paris before making our way to the real reason we were in France — the Burgundy wine region. We stayed in Beaune, which is about 25 miles south of Dijon along the famous Route de Grande Crus, and it couldn’t have been lovelier.

Three Days in Cortina d’Ampezzo

As part of my commitment to truly learn how to ski, I booked a late-season trip to Cortina d’Ampezzo, a popular resort area in the Dolomites. Andy and I were both really excited about exploring a new region of Italy and I was feeling much more confident about skiing after our lovely trip to Chamonix in January, but the experience ended up being a bit of a letdown.
