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!

It was our first time staying in The Netherlands during Springtime.

We have been waiting to go ‘czech’ this city out for a couple years now and finally got a chance to this Spring (April 2018). What a lovely capital city it is – bustling with history, cobblestone streets, gothic churches, colorful baroque buildings and of course the beer! Czech Republic consumes the most beer out of any country in the world. When you visit you will see and taste first hand why – its smooth, delicious and cheaper than water! Find out more what we did on our trip below and in the next post where we ate!

Zermatt, Switzerland is home to one of the most famous mountains…The Matterhorn! Famous so much, Disney designed one of their rides after this Swiss Alps Peak. Zermatt was one of the most lovely ski villages we had been to. The car-less streets are lined with boutiques, restaurants, chocolate shops and bakeries. It’s a year-round village that attracts hikers and skiers from all over the world. The region called “Matterhorn glacier paradise” is Europe’s largest and highest lying summer skiing region. Numerous national ski teams train here in the summer. The region is legendary amongst mountaineers: the Haute Route, a challenging international route that takes several days to complete, leads from Mont Blanc to Zermatt. We visited Mont Blanc this past summer – post HERE.
We LOVED Zermatt and can’t wait to go back and enjoy more après !
It was our first time in staying in Milano. Kay had passed through Milano Centrale on the way to Lake Como 10 years ago while studying abroad in Florence. Milan is a high fashion, fast-paced metropolis. Very different from other Italian cities we have visited. It’s the city of the future, where people really care about what they are wearing, creativity is big business and work drinks are an art form.
There are many different neighborhoods – some of our favorites being Porta Nuova/ Isola and Brera. We enjoyed walking the streets and exploring this Northern Italian city, but wouldn’t make a special trip back unless we had to pass through or had work there. If you find yourself in Milano, be sure to check out these spots and you will be sure to have a lovely time ! Continue reading “Milan, Italy”
