Espectacular España: Madrid

Alas, our last stop on our whirlwind Spanish adventure. I’m not going to lie, we came to Madrid for the art, food and shopping! The Prado Museum was a huge must on our list. But, instead of roaming around on our own, we hired a private guide (our tour group consisted of just four people).…

Spectacular Santorini (Part Two)

It’s not a trip recap without food pictures! Santorini is the perfect island getaway. Everything is within walking distance and the food was “out of this world” delicious.  Hubs, not usually a seafood person, couldn’t get enough of the Greek mussels.  Neither could I.  We mostly ordered from the starter menus while we were there,…

This bakery opened its doors in 1847 and has quite a bit of history behind it. At one point or another, it catered to the…

Tasty Tuesdays: HimmelBlau

Himmelblau roughly translates into “Blue Sky”.  This extremely cute cafe is located in the 18th district of Vienna and very walkable from our flat in the 9th. In fact, it was really ideal in this balmy 40 some-thing degree weather. Yes, you read correctly. Vienna is having a “heatwave” of sorts for the last week,…
