Italy 2023: daytrip to Modena

Modena has intrigued me for a while, after all it is the home of balsamic vinegar, with ham, lambrusco and other tasty items also produced locally. And with it being about 30 minutes from Bologna by...

Orlando 2023: Mills 50

Orlando 2023: Mills 50

On Saturday we didn't want to stay in the hotel room (or at Disney Springs) the entire day, so we took an Uber to the Mills 50 area to check out the street art. While we did find a few murals to...

Euro Christmas Markets 2022: Bruges sights

Spain 2022: Valencia street art

Spain 2022: Valencia street art

Before we left on this trip, I researched a bunch of street art places and muralists that I wanted to see. As with most street art, a lot were still visible while others had been painted over or...

Portugal 2019: Porto sights

Portugal 2019: Porto sights

Our first real sight of Porto was the train station, and wow! We weren't the only ones that stopped to admire the tiles. Besides the train station, most of the the sights we experienced were seen on...

Portugal 2019: Lisbon sights

Portugal 2019: Lisbon sights

Italy 2017: exploring Rome

Italy 2017: exploring Rome

Sunday The quick 1.5 hour train ride from Florence to Rome was fairly uneventful. It took us a few tries to find the subway entrance from Termini as it wasn't well marked and a few entrances to the...

Italy 2017: Florence sights and shopping

Italy 2017: Florence sights and shopping

I have never met anyone who has been to Florence and didn't like it. It's probably a mix of the food, the gorgeous architecture and museums, and all the leather goods for sale. There is certainly a...

Winter Weekend in London: Overview and Thursday

Malaysia: Georgetown street art

Malaysia: Georgetown street art

Netherlands 2015: Amsterdam flowers and art
