Earlier this month I went to Norway for a little holiday. But before you ask about the famous western fjords, I’ll admit that I didn’t visit them. Did your jaw just drop? I know, I know. But on this particular trip our limited time prevented us from making the journey. Don’t worry, it’s OK. Whatever you do, don’t feel bad for us because we still had a great time without the famous fjords.
I love music. Let me clarify, I love listening to music. Most people consider my personal taste in song selections to be “eclectic” at best, and “confusing” at worst. It’s understandable because I’m not picky about genre, language, lyrics or style. A typical playlist can feature the Beatles for breakfast, merengue over lunch and heavy metal before bed. No musical discrimination in our house!
Last month I took my first trip to Egypt. Ever since we moved to Europe we hoped to make the relatively short journey to the north-African country. Visiting the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World was an experience we both looked forward to. And seeing the 4,500 year old tombs in person was at the top of our Bucket Lists.
San Sebastián is a coastal city that hugs the Bay of Biscay. The resort town is well known for its impressive waterfront promenade, golden sandy beach and mountainous views. Glamorous beauty aside, the city also has a strong food and wine scene and a reputation for exciting nightlife.
When we lived in Biscarosse, France it was less than 90 minutes to the adorable village of Saint Émilion. Located in the wine growing region of Bordeaux, the medieval town sits high above the vineyards below.
The human brain is like a time capsule. It’s capable of retrieving information from the past through memory recall. Have you ever heard a certain song or smelt a distinct scent that transports you to a memory? This often happens to me, especially with music.
When I’m looking for travel inspiration I usually begin with Google. My search starts with a generic topic, for example “beautiful villages in France” and then it’s off to the races. It’s pretty easy for me to fall down a rabbit hole and lose myself in research. Thanks to the magic of the internet, new trip/travel ideas are never more than a few mouse clicks away.
