Melbourne: Eating Our Way Through Chinatown Melbourne

Every time we visit a new city, I always look to see if the area has a Chinatown. In the US, we’ve seen a few cities with Chinatown’s that have really stood out, most noticeably Oakland’s Chinatown. With that said, we were excited to go through Chinatown Melbourne to try as much food as we possibly could. One thing that made Chinatown Melbourne different was the lack of…

Melbourne Day Trip: Wilsons Promontory National Park

We were so excited for our trip to Wilson’s Prom. There are so many different trails and hikes but we decided on Mount Oberon, which we heard was pretty steep but had the best views. To get to the trail, we had to drive through the park for almost an hour, which was awesome! We saw wallabies, kangaroo, emus, and wombats right by the road! And birds! There were so many…

Melbourne Day Trip: Mount Martha Beach South

We took a day trip to Peninsula Hot Springs, which I’ll write about tomorrow because it was amazing! But on the way to our airbnb, we wanted to stop at a look out. There are so many to choose from, but we decided to stop at Mount Martha Beach South because we knew there was a beach and cliffs and figured that would photograph well. It only took us about 25 minutes to drive there…

Where to Eat in Cape May, New Jersey

When we went to Cape May for a weekend, we let our friends Josh and Rachel take us around since they had been there before. We bought some groceries at the start of our trip so we could save money, although we did spend a lot of money on root beer and vanilla ice cream to make homemade root beer floats. We did go out to eat a few times and when we did, it was delicious!

Our Weekend Trip to Cape May, New Jersey

Our friends Josh and Rachel invited us to join them for a weekend in Cape May. It was before Memorial Day weekend so it wasn’t really the typical weather for the beach. We have always visited Ocean Beach with Nick’s family, so neither of us had ever been to Cape May. When we first heard beach trip, our minds went to laying in the sand, swimming, walking on a boardwalk, etc. This…

4 Places to Get Coffee in DC

We are so excited to share with you all the places we got coffee in DC. Everywhere we went was delicious and had plenty of dairy free options. This was the first time we ever used our Keep Cups and they were super easy to use! It was a big conversation starter with strangers - so many people came up to us and asked about them! We get coffee to-go so often, especially when traveling…

Washington DC: Tourist Attractions

We’ve said it before, but we really can’t believe it’s taken us so long to go to DC - especially since it’s just a few hours away! Seeing the Capitol Building and the Washington Monument felt so surreal because I am so used to seeing them in books and on TV (especially since I’m a school teacher and teach about them!) yet it was my first time in real life. Although there were crowds of…

Washington DC: 14th Street and U Street Corridor

Our Airbnb was in a little residential area about a mile away from the U Street Corridor. We went to this neighborhood almost every day to try different restaurants (most of them were on 14th Street). It was a really nice area with so many restaurants, cafes, and bars. It seemed to be really popular, and it was a little hard to find parking. We met up with one of Nick’s friends who lived on…

Washington DC: Georgetown

We left early in the morning on Easter Monday to make the three and a half hour drive to DC. We live so close but neither of us had ever been, so it was the perfect little vacation. We drove down with some friends from college and met up with more friends from college once we got there! It was such a fun reunion. After dropping our stuff at our airbnb, we headed straight to Georgetown.

Exploring Adamstown, Pennsylvania

When we visited the area, we spent the day with friends exploring downtown Lancaster, and even went on a coffee crawl. But we were actually in the area because a friend gifted us a free night at Amethyst Inn, a bed and breakfast in Adamstown, about 20 minutes outside of Lancaster. It was so cute, with a fireplace inside the room and even a jacuzzi in our bathroom! The owner was…

5 Things to Do in Lancaster

We’ve visited Lancaster several times before, but this time was special, as we were visiting just as tourists! Usually when we go, we’re just there for lunch or to grab coffee with friends, but this time, we were able to spend the whole day there, doing whatever we wanted. We asked all of our friends for recommendations, and our friends Natalie and Mark tagged along, making this a great…

Lancaster: Coffee Crawl

We were in the Lancaster area for a couple days for an Oakmoss Collective event and then to visit some friends. We’ve been to Lancaster a few times since we went to college less than an hour away. We knew that the city takes it’s coffee seriously and is full of different cafes to check out. Since we were only in Lancaster for one full day, we decided to do a coffee crawl. We asked all…

7 Places to Eat in Nashville (with Gluten-free and Vegetarian Suggestions)

Nick and I always research where to eat before we take a trip.

We loved all of the places we tried, but we narrowed it down to seven places that you have to try if you go to Nashville…

It is located in the Gulch and is connected to the gorgeous Thompson Nashville hotel. We took advantage of that by…

We had visited Hillsboro Village a couple different times on the trip, grabbing lunch or exploring after an open mic night. We actually came back here for our last few hours before our flight home. It is such a cool area with so many restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques! Every time we came, we drove by Belmont University. The buildings there are gorgeous! We randomly discovered…

Nashville: Germantown

On our last full day of the trip, we spent the morning sleeping in and slowly planning our day. We decided to get coffee at Red Bicycle Coffee and Crêpes, which is an area of Nashville called Germantown. Most people were eating brunch there (it looked really good!) but we just grabbed coffee and decided to explore the area. All the brick buildings, trees, and quiet streets made…

Nashville: 12 South

A lot of what we had on our Must Do in Nashville list was located in 12 South, which is a neighborhood surrounding 12th Avenue South. There are a bunch of murals on this street as well as the famous Five Daughters Bakery (they have gluten free and vegan donuts there!). Liz was also excited to go to Draper James, which is Reese Witherspoon’s store. The Draper James building is painted with gorgeous blue and white stripes so many people like to take pictures there. Right across the alley way from Draper James is the I Believe in Nashville mural.
