Prague, in Photos

We know we’ve been really text heavy recently. Lots of adulting and advice and budgeting and numbers. It’s been a pretty rough few weeks, and we’re both feeling a little worn out. So what do we do when we’re tired? Look at old photos, of course! This week, we’re taking it back to last Easter, when we traveled to Prague for four days. It is truly a magical city. Enjoy! (Want to see more photos? Check out and follow our…

Running Through Paris Disney

Running Through Paris Disney

In September of this year, Colin and I joined my sister Jennifer to join in our first ever runDisney event – a 5K through the Disneyland Paris parks. We were also there as moral support, cheering on my sister as she ran the half marathon the next day (she’s running ANOTHER one today – go Jenny!). I am not, by any means, a runner. In junior high and high school, I only got through the mile runs by wearing two…

Since we’re busy preparing for our next adventure (running a Disney race in Paris), we only have time for a short post today. But that doesn’t mean you’ll be deprived!

Hiking from Fira to Oia in Santorini

Hiking from Fira to Oia in Santorini

This last May, we took a trip to Greece with Katarina’s wonderful mother. We spent a week gawking over the Pantheon, exploring Crete, sipping wine in Santorini, and eating as many gyros as we could. But, through all of that, one activity definitely stood out. Using the (occasionally dubious) advice of Trip Advisor, we decided to hike from the capital city of Fira (or Thira) to Oia on Santorini. The hike is about 10km and takes you along the crescent rim…

The Best Beer Weekend in Belgium

The Best Beer Weekend in Belgium

For our 1 year wedding anniversary last month, my lovely wife surprised me with a weekend beer getaway to Belgium! Belgium is known for having some of the best – and most unique – beer in the world. It’s also known for its chocolate, specifically truffles, waffles, and fries (or frites). Katarina also gave me a book: The World Atlas of Beer. It gives some great insight to beer made all over the world, plus recommendations of what to try. After some research,…

This week, we’re off to Brussels and Bruges for a beer-centric weekend. But before we take off, we thought you’d enjoy a little peek into our last trip – Rome for our one year anniversary! You can expect posts about specific aspects of the trip over time (the cat sanctuary, our anniversary, and gelato, to name a few), but this just might tide you over until then! Until next week – adventure on, pandas! -Katarina and Colin Next on the…
