Exeter & Glastonbury

We planned a few stops for the day on our way back to London. We left the Wigwam around 9:30am and drove about 1.5hrs to get to Exeter. Exeter seemed like a decently big city- we went mostly to see the cathedral, but ended up walking along this pretty waterfront for a bit, which have…

Pendennis Castle & St. Michael’s Mont

The weather was not good or projected to get any better when we woke up. Strong winds, lots of rain – just the perfect outdoor weather! The area I had hoped to go (some ruins on an “island” you had to cross a bridge to get to) was closed due to the strong winds. So…

Sennen Cove – Minack Theater Coastal Walk

The Cornwall area is known for it’s many coastal walks. The coast is gorgeous with lots of little coves to explore. We decided to do the coastal walk from Sennen Cove to Minack Theater (around 7 miles), then get a cab back to Sennen Cove (where our car was parked). While it was a bit…

Peak District

We drove up to our airbnb in Buxton after work Friday night (about 3.5hrs). We got in around 10pm and had some wine to cap off our night. Day 1 We had brekkie at our airbnb and then headed out around 10am to our “walk” for the day – Kinder Scout. I don’t really know…

2 Days in Northern Ireland

We had a night flight from London to Belfast and then about an hour drive to our Airbnb in Bellycastle (close to the Giants Causeway) where we went straight to bed! Day 1 We left our Airbnb around 9am and walked into town to find a place for breakfast. We found a nice bakery (Ursa…

4 Days in Palermo, Sicily

We arrived in Palermo around 9pm at night and decided to go out for a late night dinner (it is Italy after all). We only went about 5minutes from our airbnb but had a DELICIOUS dinner. Alyssa and I decided to split a pizza and ask the waiter for a recommendation. Apparently, pistachios are a…

Linderhof Palace & Dachau Concentration Camp

We didn’t have too many plans for the day besides make our way towards the Munich airport. We figured out Linderhof Palace was only about 15 minutes away from our hotel so we figured we would stop there on our way back. Linderhof was built by King Ludwig II and apparently inspired by Versailles (according…

Forestis Hotel, Eibsee Lake, & Oberammergau

We woke up to the “sunrise” in our cool suite at the Forestis. It was a bit cloudy so it was harder to see the Dolomites, but still was pretty! We had the biggest, most extravagant breakfast buffet! There was all the normal breakfast foods and a cheese and meat bar which also had salmon!…

Dolomites – Tre Cime & Forestis Hotel

Today was the day we finally got to stay in our fancy hotel! But first we wanted to get in a hike around Tre Cime since it is one of the most popular mountain ranges in the Dolomites. We arrived to the Tre Cime area around 9:30 to find (once again) the parking near the…

Dolomites – Lago Di Braies

We had a nice breakfast at our hotel then headed off to Lago Di Braies for the morning! Turns out you have to get there at 8:30 (at the latest) to get parking near the lake. We didn’t arrive until about 9:30, but thankfully got into the lot about 3miles from the lake before that…

Dolomites – Seceda

Another early morning to get up and go hiking! Seceda is probably one of the most insta-worthy places in the Dolomites so we picked a day of the week with good weather to go visit- and wow it was amazing!We took the cable car from the town up to Seceda, which took around 25minutes (and…

Dolomites – Alpe Di Suisi

The forecast for the day said nice morning with a rainy afternoon so we woke up early again and made our way to the Mont Seuc cable car that was about a mile from our airbnb. The nice thing about hiking in the Dolomites is that there are a ton of cable cars so you…
