travel adventures: london (july 2019)

hello! earlier this summer, E and I went to London! we were there from Thursday morning – Tuesday morning and it was such a fun trip! these days, we usually travel with Lucy (and often Jack too 🐶) so this trip felt like a real vacation – no diapers to change, food to cut up, nap times to stick to, etc! we went to London together three years ago (Sept 2016) so it was fun to visit some of the spots we visited last time, and of course, go to lots of new spots too! I was about 9 weeks pregnant during the trip, but […]

travel adventures: paris (sept 2018)

Better late than never! I am finallllly getting around to sharing photos from the last leg of our Europe 2018 trip – Paris! It’s almost been a year since our trip, but wanted to share a few photos (Lucy was soooo tiny! 😭) and some favorite things to do in Paris. Our good friends Luke and Renee live there and compiled an amazing list of things to do / places to go, so here’s some Paris ideas from locals! 🇫🇷We went to a lot of these spots, but not all — you can’t go wrong with any of these spots. We stayed in Le Marais […]

travel adventures: belgium

Gravensteen Castle — touristy, but super cool to walk through an old castle. It was self-guided, and we could explore the entire thing — not just “sectioned off” areas you see sometimes in old home tours or museums. Plus, there was an epic view of Ghent from the top! We also took a day trip to the super cute town of Bruges. I had a lot of people tell me how much they loved visiting this adorable town. While there, we had breakfast (BAGELS!) at the v popular Sanservia Bagelsalon, visited the castle (Belfry of Bruges), had beers at Cambrinus and Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan and […]

travel adventures: amsterdam

Finally getting around to sharing photos and some of our favorite places we visited in Europe! As a reminder, we were gone for a little over three weeks and visited Amsterdam, Belgium, the Champagne and Burgundy regions of France, and Paris. In case you missed all the photos, I shared everything here: #burdsleavethenest. This blog post will cover our first stop – AMSTERDAM! We absolutely LOVED Amsterdam and could totally see ourselves living there. People were super welcoming and super kind/friendly to us/Lucy. Everywhere we went, people stopped us to “talk to” Lucy. The city itself was charming with cobblestone streets and the canals everywhere, […]

travel adventures: italy (rome, positano & capri)

Hi! Two months later…I’m finally sharing more photos from our trip to Europe! I shared a blog post about the first half of our trip, spent in Greece, HERE. Today, I’m going to share about the second half, where we visited Italy – Rome and the Amalfi Coast, specifically! I’ve broken down the post based on the three different places we visited and stayed with info about what we did and photos from each spot below. Honestly, this post is REALLY long and I could have broken into three different posts, but decided to just bundle into one. As always, thanks for reading! xx   […]

travel adventures: greece!

Excited to share some photos from our recent trip to Europe! First, I want to share about the first half of our trip to Greece! We were super excited about this part of the trip because 1) we were going with our good friends Luke and Renee who recently moved to Paris and 2) the majority of the trip would be on our own private sailboat visiting different Greek islands. ?  SO DREAMY! We took a red-eye from SF to Athens, with a layover in Munich. The long flight was fairly painless, especially since 1) they had good movie options and 2) we booked a […]
