Copenhagen: Sleep, Eat, Play

Two things can make or break your trip….your accommodations and your food selections.  You can make the most of any city if you have the best place to sleep and delicious food to eat.  Agree?  So on our holiday to Copenhagen we decided to book an Airbnb instead of a hotel since we were making Copenhagen our home base for a week.  Having a kitchen and common area allowed us to come home and relax before dinner or wake up and enjoy our morning coffee with fresh baked goods on our back balcony.  We couldn’t have picked the most perfect flat….details below!

San Sebastián 2017

Back in 2013, we spent 2.5 weeks traveling Spain.  It was quite the trip…check it out HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE (2015) and HERE.  Our favorite destination was San Sebastián and little did we know that T would be coming back for work! This past trip was accompanied by great weather, lovely co-workers and some fantastic pintxos hopping.  T revisited some of our favorite pintxos bars and found some new ones.  Here are some of the highlights of the trip.

Helsinki is Finland’s capital that is home to the national Museum tracing Finnish history from the Stone Age to the present.  It’s a vibrant seaside city of beautiful islands and green parks.  T.W.O. enjoyed our time in Helsinki even if it was for both work and play.  We got to explore most of the city and even took a day trip to Estonia which we will be talking about in our next post.  We aren’t ‘finnished’ yet – go ahead and read what we did in Helsinki!   Stats: 620,982 people | 300+ islands | 1 sea fortress | most saunas per capita in the world

Florence, Italy

Florence | Firenze | The Best

We can officially say both of us have been to Florence, but separate times.  K was able to study abroad in this beautiful city during her junior year at UCSB.  Now T got to experience it for herself.  All those years k talked about how much she loved this city and T now knows why.  And for our readers – here is why:

Day Trip to Siena, Italy

T.W.O. had the opportunity to take a day trip to Siena for business.  Short on time and unlucky weather, T. was able to see the famous square where the Palio takes place each year, have a proper lunch, tour the Duomo, wonder the small streets of the Tuscan town and most importantly get a gelato! Here are some snapshots from her adventure.

Most recently, half of T.W.O. got to travel to Rome for work – first time for T and it won’t be the last! Though only one of us went, that didn’t mean K wasn’t there with her in spirit. Like always – an itinerary was set and restaurants were researched.  Here are some of the highlights of the trip!
