Tulum Ruins and Beach | A Time to Kale

Food Travel Guide: True Paradise in Tulum

Ah! Tulum. Where do I even start? I LOVE TULUM. I’m not one to use the word “magical” to describe most things… but truly there is something magical about Tulum. On the Yucatan Peninsula, nestled below Cancun in the Mexican Caribbean, Tulum is a laid-back paradise of beautiful white sand beaches, dramatic palm trees against […] Read more…

Sonoma Wine Tasting | California Wine Country | Michel Schlumberger Food Wine Pairing

A Weekend in Sonoma Wine Country

Wine tasting is quite possibly my most favorite thing in the entire world. It should come as no surprise, then, that my recent trip to California to explore Sonoma wine country for the very first time was a huge highlight of my year! A 2015 travel experience second only to our amazing Caribbean adventure in April. If you’ve […] Read more…

Jost Van Dyke BVI

Eating My Way Through the British Virgin Islands

If you’re fortunate enough to be vacationing in USVI, you might as well hop over to check out some of BVI while you’re in the area. The British Virgin Islands are absolutely lovely, and there are many to explore – the main islands in BVI are Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke, but overall […] Read more…

Dinghy's Beach Bar Water Island USVI

Eating My Way Through USVI: Water Island

The title of this one is a little misleading because unlike my St. Thomas guide, I am literally showing you zero food. When we visited Water Island, USVI it was all about the booze and the beach. Trust me, though, that’s not a bad thing. I mean: Water Island isn’t as famous as St. Croix, St. […] Read more…

Eating My Way Through USVI: St. Thomas

Before heading out, we were attempting to Google the USVI dining and nightlife scene and I was surprised by the scarcity […] Read more…

Stovies, Curries, and Chips: A Taste of Scotland

Time for my last post about our Eurotrip… After Iceland we went to Scotland! The main impetus was for Michael (one of Rob’s best friends from high school) and Trudy’s wedding, but really, who wouldn’t want to spend some time in beautiful Scotland anyway? The wedding festivities were happening in St. Andrews, on the east […] Read more…

Eating My Way Through Iceland: Part 2

Halló! Welcome to Iceland food travel, part 2! If you missed the first half of my recap, you can find it here. When we last left off, Rob and I had driven all around the Golden Circle on Monday, stopping for soft serve ice cream cones and lamb soup. That took us most of the […] Read more…

Eating My Way Through Iceland: Part 1

We got back from our Europe vacation about a week ago, but I’ve been so exhausted and busy getting back into the swing of things that I haven’t had the time or energy to really recap… UNTIL NOW. (And just when things seem like they’re winding back down to normal, we’re headed to Seattle for […] Read more…
