Bucket list: Germany

Munich, Germany

I know highlighting Germany as a destination on our travel bucket list seems odd since I’ve written about Germany before – but we have not been there as a couple! I really enjoyed my time in Germany and I know Rick really wants to go there as soon as we can. Honestly, if we hadn’t

A couple’s travel itinerary for Santa Fe

Rick and Stephanie at Gruet

Though it doesn’t seem possible that summer is coming to an end I suppose it’s true as we’ve celebrated the holiday that traditionally marks this time of year: Labor Day. For Labor Day this year, Rick and I opted for something a little closer to home yet still across the border and so that’s how

Review of San Francisco Ghost Tours

I recently had the opportunity for a quick weekend getaway with my sister to San Francisco and I immediately went online and looked up ghost tours. My sister, like me, loves haunted history and we make a point to book ghost tours when we travel as a family so she was more than down to

Honky Tonk Central in Nashville

Ready to go country and practically lose all your hearing for a day or two? Then you’ll want to travel to Nashville, AKA Music City! The capital of Tennessee, sometimes called Nash Vegas, is a fun travel destination in the US if you love music, hot chicken and good Southern food, and Jack Daniels. I
