We visited Lake Como last year in April and loved it so much we went back again in the fall. If you're not familiar with the area, northern Italy is an incredibly beautiful place and quite special to me. I studied abroad in Turin, Italy and have always had a love for Italy and Italian culture.
When I first visited Lake Garda I knew I would be back to that area again. Why? Because it's incredibly stunning. Pictures truly cannot do this place justice, and I am astounded every time we go. I love the drive from Stuttgart; we head south from Germany, down through the Alpine regions in Austria or Switzerland, and descend into a mediterranean climate with palm trees and a completely different scenery.Read More
Firenze. It just rolls off the tongue. And what a beautiful city to visit. Churches, art, statues and beautiful facades at every corner. The old town is huge with winding streets and narrow cobblestone alleys unfit for cars.

I love living in Stuttgart but don't write about it often, so here's a glimpse into some of the best things to see and do in this city.
Schlossplatz, or palace square, is in the center of the city. It sits along Königstrasse and is just a few blocks from the main train station (Hauptbahnhof).Read More
For Malta we decided to do a Jeep Safari Tour with the largest tour company in the area. We saw most of the island's highlights in just one day. While I don't always love the organized fun, I have found that doing these smaller tours are much more personal and end up being a lot more enjoyable than the large tour bus travel. And with the added bonus that you get to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time.Read More
How is it already 2015?! I am still catching up on photos and images from last summer. Yes, LAST SUMMER! What is wrong with me. Anyway, better late than never right? So our tour of the Isle of Skye this past summer continues, and will be full of photos today!Read More
My favorite time to take photos and explore a city is in the evening, when the sun has lowered and the light becomes softer and eventually becomes a beautiful rich blue color. But you don't need me to tell you that. Here's some photos from my last trip to Prague.Read More
