Alexandria :: La Fromagerie

Alexandria :: La Fromagerie

With Scott working in Old Town Alexandria these days, we’ve had a lot of fun exploring the area around where he works. I could seriously get lost all day just poking around in the various antique and specialty item stores or tasting amazing things in the various gourmet shops. There’s a fudge shop that’s to…

Favorite Moments from Beer, Bourbon and BBQ D.C.

Favorite Moments from Beer, Bourbon and BBQ D.C.

You guys already know we’re big fans of food festivals, so you might be wondering how we managed to wait this long to start checking out some of the epic food and beverage festivals going on all up and down the East Coast right now! We’ve gotta tell you, though, that the Beer Bourbon BBQ…

Dining Denver :: The Fresh Fish Company

Dining Denver :: The Fresh Fish Company

Every visit to the Mile High City in the mountains has been eye-opening to me in many ways, and has totally changed my perspective on potentially living there in the future {as a note, we are giving serious thought to moving to Denver after I finish my service in D.C.}. As you all might know by now,…

Savannah :: The Pirates’ House

Savannah :: The Pirates’ House

When we travel, one of the things we love best is to stumble upon places with great stories. Lucky for us, that’s pretty easy to do in Savannah. Savannah’s rich and diverse history and its sense of the romantic have created a rich tapestrry of stories to explore! Aside from the ubiquitous ghosts {Savannah is considered…

Disney Springs :: Art Smith’s Homecoming Florida Kitchen

Disney Springs :: Art Smith’s Homecoming Florida Kitchen

When Scott introduced me to it, it was Downtown Disney. Lots of fun shops and souvenir spots, a few little dining places and chain restaurants, nice enough but nothing to write home about. Before that, at one point, it had been Pleasure Island, and Disney should have known that name was a bad idea. Sketchy souvenir shops,…

Five Things Traveling Has Taught Me About Food

Five Things Traveling Has Taught Me About Food

I’ve been addicted to the taste of adventure for a long time. Literally. Because travel comes with so many wonderful new flavors, from fine dining in London to street food in Korean markets to glacier water melting on the Mendenhall in Juneau. Growing up, we traveled internationally, but what really seeded the love for taste…

Dining London :: Ffiona’s

Dining London :: Ffiona’s

We got back to our London hotel late one evening, exhausted from our adventures out and about but with just enough energy left to go out and explore somewhere new for dinner. Neither of us felt like doing the research, so we did the next best thing – asked the expert. In this case, the…

Five Things You Should Do Before Dining Abroad

Five Things You Should Do Before Dining Abroad

Confession time: once up on a time, I was a picky eater. I mean seriously picky. From the age of about 13-17, if it wasn’t some bland variation on plain meat paired with plain bread, hold the sauces and for God’s sake, no pickles, I wasn’t about to eat it.

Norfolk :: Freemason Abbey Restaurant

Anyone else here guilty of doing that thing where you plan your vacation around where you’re going to eat? You know, where things you’re going to do or see are planned around where the best restaurants are? Like, “I have got to take you to this awesome brunch place, and it’s right near the water, so maybe…

How We Find Great Local Food While Traveling

How We Find Great Local Food While Traveling

I love chatting with fellow travelers about their travel styles. It’s a lot of fun to see who’s super organized, planning out their itineraries down to the finest detail, and who’s super laid-back to the point where they’ve just bought open ended tickets and are going to wing it from there. I know people on…
