Travel itinerary: One day in Edinburgh

Rick and I were so excited to finally, finally visit Scotland in 2023, seeing as we originally booked the trip in 2018 for a 2020 travel date! We went to Scotland on our trip to England, Scotland, and Ireland with EF Go Ahead Tours and our Scotland portion was concentrated on Edinburgh. Since this was

One day in Dublin

We were supposed to cross Dublin (and other places in Ireland) off our bucket list in 2020. That did not happen, but it was okay as we finally got to visit the Emerald Isle this past September when the world was back to normal. It was a whirlwind trip as we explored France, England, Scotland,

So, we

24 hours in Sintra

Sintra, Portugal

When we went to Portugal last spring, we made our home base in Lisbon and booked a day trip out to Sintra. I’ll be honest and say that Rick and I did not do much planning for this trip and kind of just went along for the ride with what my family wanted to do,

24 hours in Lisbon

I’ll start this post off by saying I’m glad we had more than one day in Lisbon but I will also say that if you’re strapped for time you can pack a lot in if you only have 24 hours in Lisbon! From historical attractions to trendy eateries, there’s a lot to do in Lisbon.

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
