A Quick Trip to Washington, D.C.

We may have been a little dramatic in our Instagram stories (listed under “highlights” for now) while waiting to board our very delayed flight to Washington, D.C., but to be fair by the time we boarded, we were already supposed to have landed. Normally losing a couple hours of vacation is a nuisance, but not …

Five Easy Hairstyles for Travel (that aren’t a messy bun or ponytail!)

I think it’s really important to maintain your appearance while traveling, and I don’t mean just for photos (though that’s an added bonus!). Thieves and other bad guys undoubtedly assess their targets on appearance, so whenever we’re away from home I try to make sure I’m dressed to fit in with my surroundings. Nothing gives …

Ten Tips for a Successful Day Trip to the Kennedy Space Center

Keeping with our New Year’s Resolution to travel more within our own state, we made the trek down to Cape Canaveral, Florida to visit the Kennedy Space Center. I’d dreamed of attending Space Camp as a young girl, but missed out on the opportunity (though I guess not for good, since there is such a …

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

We used to celebrate Valentine’s Day in the Hallmark way: cards, flowers, chocolate, jewelry, and a mandatory “nice” dinner. But it quickly grew stale, and once we began travelling we began to celebrate it in a more understated way. It’s certainly a strange holiday (here’s a brief history, if you’re wondering), yet we still acknowledge …

Dining at noma 1.0

Exterior

noma, the restaurant by New Nordic Cuisine pioneers Rene Redzepi and Claus Meyer, is reopening soon with a new concept, so I thought I’d share our experiences dining at the restaurant’s first iteration back in June 2015. We had a narrow window to decide whether to pursue a reservation as the system opened for  reservations …

Destination Films and TV Shows to Watch

Before we travel we are usually very busy planning an itinerary. While it may seem counterintuitive to spend time that could be used for creating a travel plan, we always dedicate a couple of hours to watching TV shows and films set in, or about, the place we are planning to visit. We often gain helpful …

Four Days in Memphis, Tennessee

About a year before we visited Nashville, we visited Memphis, Tennessee (I imagine most people visit those two cities in the opposite order). This was back in July 2016, nearly nine months before we started this blog. I plan on sharing some of our past trips in this space this year; I hope you don’t mind!

Traveling Light: Providence, RI Packing List

Normally packing for a three-day weekend is a breeze, but when you’re from Florida and the temperature at your destination is barely expected to rise above freezing, it can be a challenge. Neither of us have a well-established winter wardrobe since you don’t really need one where we live, and I still feel like we’re …

Three Days in Providence, RI

Last weekend we celebrated Christmas early by flying north for three days to Providence, Rhode Island. We selected Providence because the airfare was in our price range, the flight times worked with our schedule, hotel prices were reasonable, and we’d hoped to see snow (despite my family’s insistence that you always fly south in the winter). …

Christmas in New York

Christmastime in New York City is busy, crowded, and expensive. Last year at this time in December, we took a 6:00 a.m. flight out of Florida with our return flight booked for 8:00 p.m. the following evening. We spent $150 each for plane tickets, $320 on a one-night reservation at the now-defunct Hotel Dumont, and …
