Who wants to
play see Monopoli ?? Of course you are going to want to see Monopoli and maybe in fact you will get the chance to play Monopoly in Monopoli! Unfortunately we didn’t since we were only there for one night. Upon arrival, we were dropped off right at the walls of Old Town and we were able to walk to our B&B. The town of Monopoli is a fishing town that dates back to 500 B.C. The town was explained to us as quaint..which it was, but I would have to say it felt bigger than Polignano a Mare. Still the narrow cute streets, shutters and flowers but more people filled the streets at night. Scroll down more to find out about our 36 hours in Monopoli.
The best part of Puglia is that the region is relatively small, so day trips are very easy! We hired a driver to pick us up from Polignano a Mare and take us inland to three cities. Find our more about our day trip below!
PUGLIA. It’s the heel of the boot in southern Italy and its one of the best kept secrets. But I think the secret is already out. In the next couple posts we will be highlighting all the place we traveled with a summary at the end giving you an overview of our itinerary and some travel tips. So first stop, Polignano a Mare
Last time we were in Dublin, it was winter time, cold, rainy and dark for the majority of the day. We still had a great time, but this visit was especially perfect because we had sunshine, blue skies, and warm weather! Having only 2 days in Ireland, we made the most of it – visited Book of Kells (since it was closed last time), National Gallery of Ireland and Merrion Square. The highlight of the trip was our hike from Bray to Greystones. Find out more below about our trip to the coast!
We’ve been to London in the Winter, Spring, Fall and now we got to experience this brilliant city in the Summer! What a great time to be there – Wimbledon, World Cup and British Summer Time Festival. Oh and the weather – 80 degrees and no rain! THE BEST!!! We enjoyed wearing our sun dresses walking down Kings Road and Marylebone High Street. This trip we spent more time Chelsea and Marylebone and less time in the touristy areas. Chelsea and Marylebone are chic, local boroughs that are populated with restaurants, shops, residences, farmers markets and night life. Find out what we did in this post!
Third time’s a charm!!! We found ourselves back in Barcelona for T’s annual summer work conference. This time we stayed in a new neighborhood and tried out some new places, but also went back to some of our favorites. In this post you will find some of our new recommendations !

It was our first time staying in The Netherlands during Springtime. Last Spring on our way to Copenhagen, we flew into Amsterdam as a layover and saw the tulip fields from above which was a pretty sight. Seeing them in person though at ground level was even better! Our day trip out to Lisse was such a fun adventure – check it out!
As much as we loved the city of Prague, we wanted to get out to the countryside to experience the real Czech culture and see some smaller villages. After doing some research, we found – OFF ROAD SAFARI, CZ . Click to jump on our journey! Continue reading “Bohemian Vineyards and Wine Tasting Tour”
We were in Prague at a special time – Easter time! Easter in Prague is big – they decorate the Old Town with eggs, ribbon and set up Easter Markets. In addition to the Easter Market, we found ourselves some wonderful restaurants. In this post, we feature our favorite restaurants in Prague!
