Athens

We arrived at the port of Piraeus near Athens early in the morning affording us time for a quick breakfast aboard the ship. We decided after thinking everything through the Hop On-Hop Off bus would be the best way to travel the city. Olivia enjoyed riding in the front of the bus in the upper deck, but it definitely wasn’t warm. The audio program  ...

Bari

The first stop on our cruise was Bari, Italy. We walked around while Olivia napped in her stroller.  Stefan purchased a suit jacket for himself which he is obsessed with! Upon Olivia’s wake-up we sat down at a local restaurant and enjoyed meat, olives and wine while Olivia ran around next to us.

Budapest

Budapest has been on my bucket list ever since we got to Europe. We watched several youtube’s to make sure we knew what to expect when we got there and we very happy we made this trip well informed. We only spent one full day in Budapest, but I’m pretty sure we saw or did everything we wanted to do. First, we arrived at our Hotel on the Pest  ...

Porto, Portugal

Porto, Portugal is so beautiful! The tile in the city is just stunning. We stayed at the Cathedral Design Apartments. We were steps away from the Dom Luis bridge and directly next to the Sé Cathedral. It was located in the heart of Oporto, the UNESCO world heritage site within Porto; the perfect location for us to walk everywhere and we did! So many  ...

Lake Como

Oh boy! We are a month overdue on posting these photos. The drive down from Germany was supposed to take 5 hours, but it definitely took over 9 hours each way, but it was totally worth it for the views we got to experience. Who knew there were palm trees in Switzerland? At any rate, we stayed in Domaso, traveled by ferry to Managgio, then over to  ...

Family Trip to Tuscany

Pisa, Florence, Siena and Cinque Terre done in 4 days, 2 of those days being travel days! What were we thinking?! We flew into Pisa, rented a car and stayed at a hotel less than 5 minutes from the airport. We explored the small city of Pisa that evening and had dinner at Ristoro Pecorino. We’d recommend eating here and having their house red  ...

Summer in Paris

We just got back from our third trip to Paris and it was a hot one! The first hotel we stayed in which shall remain nameless did not have air conditioning. Our first thought was okay we can just suck it up. We dropped our bags off and headed out for the day. It was in the 90’s. We were out until about 9:30 at night walking around and then headed  ...

Colmar, France

Colmar, France is the French town that people say inspired the look of Beauty and the Beast! Olivia’s middle name is Belle and yes I got my inspiration for that name from Beauty and the Beast so we obviously had to visit this enchanting place! It was a 2.5 hour drive for us. When we got there we parked in a parking garage and walked right into the  ...

Mother’s Day in Germany

Stefan did a mommy and me photoshoot with Olivia and me on Mother’s Day. We have fields of yellow wildflowers all around the village we live in. Olivia loved running around the fields exploring. She loves playing in grass and dirt! We snuck Sophie in for a few photos too!
