We spent a little less than a week in Maastricht with Oren, Cass, and Noa, and then we started to range further afield. In the last few days of their visit, we showed them the center of Aachen, Germany, and also drove down to see Luxembourg City and Vianden in Luxembourg!
In February, we got the best Valentine’s Day present ever: Oren & Cass came to visit, and we finally got to meet sweet lil’ Noa! The weather was typically dreary for the Netherlands early in the year, but we made the most of it, and Oren & Cass even got to check off a couple […]
After checking out Gran Canaria’s awesome sand dunes on Sunday, we were ready to see what else the island had to offer in terms of Natural Wonder. Turns out it’s quite a lot, as we found during our trip to the mountain ridges in the interior!
Time to revisit another island work trip, this time to Gran Canaria! Mere had a two week trip back in January, and as she had a decent amount of time off in the schedule, I joined her for the first week. It’s a very cool, very diverse place!
As I mentioned in the last post, Mere had to work the last handful of days we were in Trapani. We resolved to make the most of our evenings, and in the meantime, I spent a few days touring around to some of my favorite spots on the island!
After Scotland, we had a little more than a week back home, and then we were at it again: Mere had week-long work trip to the western coast of Sicily, and luckily enough I was able to tag along! If there’s something I will *never* refuse, it’s a bit of Sicilian summertime.
Our time on Skye was just about at an end (and in Scotland, unfortunately), but we still had saved one more treat before making our way to the ferry: Spar Cave, near Elgol on the south coast of the island. By all accounts (including Sir Walter Scott’s!), it was a natural wonder, so we were […]
We finally made it to Isle of Skye! We had heard so many great things about this corner of Scotland, and we were absolutely excited to stay a couple of days and explore. Rest assured, Skye did not disappoint!
Well, mostly. We got a good night’s sleep in Inverness, and once we left the hotel we stocked up on some more food for the road. Then it was off to our first stop of the day: Culloden, site of the last battle between the Jacobites and the British government.
Time to get out of the city! We got up on Tuesday morning excited to hit the road, and even more excited to see a bright blue sky as we walked to one last meal at Hula. Scotland being Scotland, clouds rolled in while we were eating, but nevertheless, we said farewell to Edinburgh and […]
