Europe 2022 (Part 2): The Dolomites

Europe 2022 (Part 2): The Dolomites

I can’t recommend this area of the world enough. The Dolomites is a mountain range in the northern Italian Alps! We only scratched the surface of what you can do and see here, but loved our time here! If visiting is on your list, here’s a few places we discovered and loved: ALPE DI SUISI / SEISER ALM Alpe di Siusi was so beautiful! This is the largest high-altitude Alpine meadow in Europe. We took two lift/cableways and spent hours up here — there’s a cute restaurant, tons of trails (including family-friendly options), bike rentals, and picturesque views 🚠🏔🌾 We took the main Suisi lift […]

Europe 2022 (Part 1): Lake Garda, Italy

Europe 2022 (Part 1): Lake Garda, Italy

Hello friends! I’m excited to kick off the first in a four part series sharing more about our two week to Europe! We had such a special trip (with highs and lows, which can be expected) and I’m just really grateful for our time together. First up, our trip to Lake Garda, Italy. Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy and known for its turquoise waters – it reminded me a lot of Lake Tahoe, actually! When researching and planning the trip, we heard that Lake Garda was a less crowded, family-friendly version of Lake Como. Knowing we wanted to go to the mountains […]

Marrakech Travel Guide & Trip Photo Diary

Marrakech Travel Guide & Trip Photo Diary

Today, I’m excited to share all about our recent trip to Marrakech, Morocco! But first, let me back up. I first visited Marrakech nine years ago, on a whim with my coworkers after a conference in Barcelona. I was in my early 20s and remember being so inspired and loving how different it was from life back home (San Francisco at the time). Then, in 2019, we visited as a family (Eric, 18 month old Lucy and Winnie in my belly). I was truly OBSESSED and we had the best time exploring and trying new food and shopping and introducing Lucy to experiences so different […]

Hi friends! We recently got back from our first international trip in 2+ years (and Winnie’s first ever trip abroad!).

It feels GOOOOOD to be sharing about travel again! ✈️ ⛱ At the bottom of this post, you can find links to our other Travel Adventures including visiting Portugal, Amsterdam, Paris, Belgium, and Morocco with kid(s).

Travel Adventures: New England (Portsmouth, Portland, Boston)

Hi friends! Today I’m going to do a big long blog post all about our recent trip to New England! We flew in and out of Boston and stayed in three spots – Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Portland, Maine, and Boston, Massachusetts. We had heard THE BEST things about Portland so that was the main destination and where we spent the most time, but it was fun to stay in three distinctly different places and explore lots of places in between. We stayed two nights in Stay tuned for another blog post about Maine beaches we loved. 🙂 I decided to put those photos and details […]
