Travel Plans for 2016 and New Changes on Travel Far, Eat Well

One year ending and another year beginning always brings feelings of reflection and anticipation. Thinking back upon the past year and reflecting on all that you accomplished (or didn’t accomplish). In my case, I spent a lot of time thinking about all the places I traveled to over the past year and all the new […]

My Favorite Travel Memories of 2015

My Favorite Travel Memories of 2015

This year has been quite the year of travel for me. I traveled to 3 new countries, more than 10 new cities and had countless new adventures. Having a full-time job and only being able to travel part-time has its limitations, but I believe in making the most of the time I have and traveling at […]

A Look Inside Warner Bros. Studio London - The Making of Harry Potter

A Look Inside Warner Bros. Studio London – The Making of Harry Potter

Have you ever wished you could head behind-the-scenes of the Harry Potter film series? Now you can! Get an inside look at the Making of Harry Potter at Warner Bros. Studio London. I had really been avoiding writing about our tour of Warner Bros. Studio London because how could I possibly put into words the […]

Riding the Teleférico to the Beach in Barcelona

Riding the Teleférico to the Beach in Barcelona

If you’ve been following along with my travels then it should come as no surprise that one of my favorite ways to see a city is from above. I’ve climbed the Belfry in Bruges, hopped on the Teleférico in Madrid, climbed the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and in continuing the trend of witnessing a city […]

Notre-Dame de Fourvière in Lyon, France

Notre-Dame de Fourvière in Lyon, France

Before arriving in Lyon, I was under the impression that the city was a smaller but just as worthy version of Paris – less crowds with all the French charm you could want. While I was there, I noticed many similarities between the country’s capital city, Paris, and France’s gastronomical capital, Lyon. Similar to the […]

Lyon Traboules: Secret Passageways in the City

Lyon Traboules: Secret Passageways in the City

I knew very little about Lyon before arriving, but the last thing I expected to discover was secret passageways hidden behind seemingly normal doors in Vieux Lyon (the old part of town). After arriving in Lyon, our (super helpful) Airbnb host filled us in on all the must-see aspects of France’s third-largest city. First, she told […]

Lyon hosted the 17th World Convention of Rose Societies in 2015 which resulted in a beautiful Rose Festival that became a city-wide event.

Rose Festival in Lyon, France

We got super lucky that we just happened to arrive in Lyon the exact weekend that all the festivities for the Rose Festival were taking place. We weren’t quite sure what exactly was going on, but it was apparent that some type of festival was happening because the entire city was decorated in roses. I […]

The Plaza de España in Seville, Spain displays some of the city's most incredible architecture. It's a must-see spot for anyone spending a day in Seville.

Plaza de España in Seville

Two of the main reasons I included Seville on our latest adventure through Europe was because I had never been to Southern Spain and, most importantly, Seville is the sister city to my hometown, Kansas City. The architecture at the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City is modeled after the architecture in the Plaza de España […]

Looking for the best views of Paris? Skip the long lines and head to the Arc de Triomphe for incredible views of Paris that include the famous Eiffel Tower.

Paris from the Top of the Arc de Triomphe

I feel like when someone visits Paris for the first time, climbing the Eiffel Tower to get a glimpse of the city from above is usually at the very top of their “must-do” list. I can definitely understand this since the Eiffel Tower is the most well-known monument in the city and, like many others, it […]
