Sunday Brunch: The Elephant Walk Boston, Massachusetts

This post was last updated June 24, 2017 to reflect minor menu changes. A big thank you to Blog & Tweet Boston who invited me.Β  Sunday’s are for late mornings, drinking your entire coffee before it gets cold and brunch becomes the most important meal of the day. In Boston’s South End, Sunday’s can be quite hectic! SOWA Market is in full swing and considering it’s foodie central and the hottest place to be over…

Little Black Book: 6 Places For Foodies In New Orleans, Louisiana

What Paris is for lovers, New Orleans is for foodies. There is no better place to indulge than New Orleans! Fried catfish and beans? Yes, please! Crawfish beignets? Don’t mind if I do. And every time I’m there my pledge to eat “healthy” goes to pits. It’s for good reason. Promise. It’s the only time I don’t even feel the least bit guilty about it. Where else can you get this stuff!? My father has…

Experience Louisiana: Whitney Slave Plantation

Last month during our Louisiana trip we spent an afternoon about an hour outside of New Orleans to experience a slave plantation in Wallace, Louisiana. The Whitney Plantation was built by African slaves and opened up as a museum a couple years ago to share the lives and stories of the slaves who were on the plantation and throughout the South. It was a very moving experience and one of the first times I have…

Sunny St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans Sightseeing

One of my favorite things to do in New Orleans on a good day is to escape the craziness of the French Quarter, go uptown and stroll along St. Charles Avenue. Also known as “The Jewel of America’s Grand Avenues”. Β I highly recommend it to those who really want to visit New Orleans but don’t want to get in all the crazy party happenings that they think the city only has to offer. A QUIETER…

Photo Diary: New Orleans French Quarter

β€œThere are a lot of places I like, but I like New Orleans better. There’s a thousand different angles at any moment. At any time you could run into a ritual honoring some vaguely known queen. Bluebloods, titled persons like crazy drunks, lean weakly against the walls and drag themselves through the gutter. Even they seem to have insights you might want to listen to. No action seems inappropriate here. The city is one very…

Mornings at Demel

I love those days where everything seems to just fall into place perfectly – you have things to do although nothing feels overwhelming and the cards are just in your favor for those few hours. This is how I feel when I walk into Demel. Although Demel could probably be seen as a common tourist attraction as it’s so famous for those visiting Vienna, it’s absolutely wonderful! And after trying out multiple Viennese cafes we…

A Peek Inside The Most Magnificent Venue in Vienna

Wondering what the best way is to get a good tour? Say you’re interested in getting married there! Although L hasn’t popped the question we were interested in seeing a couple venues while we happened to be traveling to keep in the back of our minds when that time comes (ahem, no pressure πŸ˜›). It’s going to be a destination wedding for at least half the guests so we’re open to the whole globe as…

Photo Diary: Welcome to Beautiful Vienna!

Ah, Vienna! Do you know when you visit a place and you automatically feel like you belong there? It’s one of those rare cities where it’s new but never strange or unfamiliar. You feel you’re one with the people (aside from the whole language thing, ha – but even in Vienna that doesn’t seem to be a large issue!). Do you have a city that makes you feel that way? I felt that with Boston…

Sightseeing: Pyramidenkogel Tower in Austria

How many sightseeing posts can one girl have from Austria??! Turns out, a whole load! Each view deserves its own post as they are their own magnificent, breathtaking experience that should be shared with you. We took a day trip to Carinthia which I hear is where many Austrian’s go to for their waterfront vacations within the country. We didn’t get the sunniest of days and many things happened to be closed on our day…
