How have you all been doing these last SIX weeks?!

Gosh, I can’t believe it’s been six weeks since I last posted here. I’ve really missed you all! I am finally getting the hang of things with my online school. Plus we’re finally done with some of the harder things in music business like contracts and copyrights. I won’t say I know all of that stuff intimately, […]

Portugal: Strolling through Lisbon

When we booked our Portugal trip at the beginning of January for mid-February travel, I had visions of basking in sparkling, warm, Spring-like days and enjoying a lovely coffee and a delicious Portuguese pastry in an outdoor cafe. In other words, we were going to steal away to what I imagined to be sun-soaked Portugal to ward […]

What a fun week!

Mmmmm. My Chemical Romance at Wembley Arena. And Portugal… More next week :-)

Italy: Florence

Let me just say this upfront and honestly: I was not prepared for the number of tourists in Florence (of which I was one, I know, I know…). And because I wasn’t expecting them, the stalls in the San Lorenzo Market were like a slap in the face, and I am sorry to say it […]

Italy: Lucca (ti amo)

Lucca was a charming surprise! Located in Tuscany, this little town is surrounded by thick walls from the Renaissance era. Rick Steves listed Lucca and Pisa together in his Italy book, which I have to admit was the only reason we went. I am so glad we did, though. Lucca is a town with heart. […]

Italy: Pisa

Because we were “in the neighbourhood”, I really wanted to have a peek at Pisa. We did Rick Steve’s walk from the train station through the town to the Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles), where the Leaning Tower is located. We spent half a day in Pisa and half a day in Lucca. I’ll show […]

Next week, I’ll finish up this series with two more posts: Pisa/Lucca and Florence. Cinque Terre is a collection of five villages situated along the Italian […]

Côte d’Azur: Cannes

I’ve been trying to think of what to tell you about Cannes. It was our last of the Cote d’Azur cities we visited so it had a lot to live up to. To be honest, it wasn’t high on our lists of places to see while in the French Riviera, but how could we not […]

Côte d’Azur: Antibes

I am not sure if it was the amazing weather or the stunning scenery, but we loved Antibes best of all the cities we visited on the French leg of our trip to the Riviera. To us, Antibes was the most “real” feeling–cozy cove beaches, a beautiful coastal walk, and a pretty but not pretentious […]

Monaco

There are two things we noticed immediately about Monaco: 1) It has to be the cleanest city we’ve ever seen. We’re talking Disney World clean. 2) There is a LOT of money there. We liked the juxtaposition of these sailboats, though :-) We were in Monaco over Easter weekend (April 4) and the city was setting up […]
