Two great bases for a Yorkshire Dales holiday: Hawes and Masham

Cow, Yorkshire Dales, UK

In early June, we took a week-long trip to Yorkshire, England. We were attending a LAM conference in Leeds and decided to extend our visit to explore some of North Yorkshire’s prettier landscape. After seeing pictures of rolling green hills and reading about walking through sheep pastures to see waterfalls, we knew we wanted to […]

Planning a world trip itinerary

Planning a world trip itinerary

So you’ve decided you want to quit your job and travel the world. But thinking about where to go and when and for how long is completely overwhelming. Planning a world trip itinerary can indeed be daunting. It’s easy to get completely confused and overloaded by the vast number of choices you have. But with […]

Our complete around the world itinerary

Our complete around the world itinerary

We’re writing this two years since we left our apartment in Brooklyn, NY to embark on a year-long trip around the world. We honestly can’t believe it was that long ago. We wrote the first draft of this post of our complete around the world itinerary from memory without referring to any of our (copious) […]

2018 Worldwide LAM Awareness Month

Worldwide LAM Awareness Month 2018

June is Worldwide LAM Awareness Month (WWLAM). Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare, incurable lung disease. Sarah was diagnosed with LAM in 2010. Since then, we’ve connected with many other women with LAM around the world. In honor of WWLAM 2018, we’re excited to share some of their stories and give you a glimpse into what […]

Fun at Fenix Food Factory in Rotterdam

Fenix Food Factory, Rotterdam, the Netherlands

The Rotterdam Market Hall (Markthal) is the number one tourist attraction in this city we’re currently calling home. And we absolutely love it (and find ourselves there several times a week). But there’s another food hall in Rotterdam and it’s most definitely worth a trip across the Nieuwe Maas River. Fenix Food Factory is like the […]

To market to market (in Rotterdam)

Rotterdam market, the Netherlands

Of all the unique things to do in Rotterdam, our favorite is rather ordinary: shopping at the outdoor market. Every Tuesday and Saturday, one of the biggest street markets in Europe (with 400 stalls!) opens in the center of the city. This market on Binnenrotte has so many different things on offer: the freshest fruit and […]

Everything you need to know about the Gouda cheese market

Gouda Cheese Market, the Netherlands

On a recent sunny Thursday, we took a quick trip from Rotterdam to Gouda. The reason for our trip was the Gouda cheese market. We love cheese in general, but Sarah really really loooovvves Dutch cheese. Also, having now lived in Rotterdam for six months (ack… where does the time go?!), it was time to […]

Two unique Bremen attractions

Two Bremen attractions, Germany

We visited Bremen, Germany during a Christmas Market trip this past December. We would have been happy enough to just sip Glühwein and enjoy all the general German Christmas Market merriment in the city. But we* found two unique Bremen attractions that made the trip even more worth it: the Schnoor and Böttcherstraße. *We’re using the […]

Wroclaw, Poland: the perfect European city break

Rynek, Wroclaw, Poland

We’ve visited several different places in Poland and truly loved them all. Wroclaw has been on our list for a while, and is the type of city break that we imagined we would take once we were living in Europe. So when we saw a super cheap fare to fly there from Eindhoven, we jumped on it. After […]

Where to drink Polish craft beer in Wroclaw

Polish craft beer bars in Wroclaw

We are beer drinkers and beer lovers. And one of our favorite things to do while traveling is to try local beer. We had read that the craft beer scene in Wroclaw, Poland is top notch, so we were especially excited to visit the city. We were not disappointed. Polish craft beer is very good […]
