Things to Eat, Drink, and Do in Kraków

We spent our 4-day Easter weekend (thanks Europe!) exploring a little slice of Poland—road tripping from Berlin to Kraków and back again with Heidi in tow. Unfortunately, the weather decided not to work with us, and our time in Poland was largely gloomy and rainy. On the plus side, that gave us ample excuse to…

The Lazy German Breakfast

Everyone’s favorite stereotype about the Germans is how efficient they’re supposed to be. But if there’s one area of life that I’ve noticed Germany is happy to slow down and enjoy, it’s breakfast. The most common breakfast centers around brötchen, or “cute breads”. When I met Germans in the US, the first thing they always complained…

A Cape Town Date Night

Imagine. You’re sitting in a patch of sunlight in a garden of almost Biblical beauty. A small stream runs alongside you. The bricks beneath your feet are warm from the heat of the day, but the glass of white wine in your hand is cool. A duck and her ducklings—their soft baby down fuzzing them…

Things to Eat, Drink, and Do in Cape Town

“Is that…raw chicken? On the windshield?” We peered closer. It was the first day of 2018, we’d just come downstairs in search of breakfast and the beach, and it was, indeed, a piece of raw chicken wing between the windshield and the wiper. “Must have been one hell of a weird and wild party,” we…

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Millennial Central for Kirin. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. My college roommate moved to D.C. at the end of last summer, and while I didn’t envy her at all during the winter, the pictures…

50 States, 50 Pizzas

Now THIS would be a road trip I could get on board with! Apparently Zagat came out with a “best pizza per state” list in honor of Pizza Week back in the September and it completely escaped my radar. How? I honestly have no idea. I feel like I’m in danger of having my pizza-lover…

Buzzfeed’s 24 Traditional Brazilian Foods You Need To Eat Right Now is YES on so many levels. And it comes with recipes! I can’t wait until my classes finish up for the quarter and I have time to bust some of these out. I had the good fortune to have a lovely Brazilian as a roommate in…

Local Eats Listings

We just booked our accommodations for our October trip to New Orleans last week, so of course I’ve been on the scout for good eats and drinks in The Big Easy. Travel + Leisure indulged me yesterday by publishing an excellent guide to the best local haunts around the country. They recommend several eateries in…
