Worldly Fare: Try the World Morocco

As much as I love getting a Try the World box from somewhere new so I learn all about the cuisine, it's equally exciting to get a box from a country I've visited because it gives me an opportunity to reminisce and try making the cuisine I experienced for myself. I just received my latest delivery, this …

Germany: Day Trip to Luneburg

We had an incredible week in the Schleswig-Holstein region of Germany and our final day trip to Luneburg was the perfect ending to our travels.

When we started planning our trip to the Schleswig-Holstein region of Germany, and specifically Hamburg, one of the first 'things to do' that popped up on the list was the Miniatur Wunderland museum. Although I can't remember where, I had heard about the museum before and so had Brian! That wasn't completely surprising to me-- my …

30 By 30: Morocco and Portugal

The flights and hotels are booked. We're officially headed to Morocco and Portugal this May. I'm officially going to have been to 30 countries by the time I turn 30. For the record, I have the world's greatest husband. I am so grateful he goes along with some of these crazy ideas and genuinely supports …
