Last Minute Trip to Spain

Back in mid-September of 2016, four of my best girlfriends and I booked a trip to Ibiza and Valencia, Spain with less than 2-weeks notice! And, we just went for a long weekend! Who are we?!
It was one of the most spontaneous things I have ever done and sparked something inside of me that made me realize that this life is all we have; best not waste it on things we don’t love! Hence, what started the path towards #31Goals and simplistic living.
Remember, you are not a tree. If you don’t love where you are, move!

Getaway Guide: Venice and Murano, Italy

Ahhh… Venice, Italy. What a dream it was to be able to visit! Here’s my getaway guide to visiting Venice and Murano in 2 days! Yes, you CAN see Venice in only a few days!

Venice (like Greece) was another city on my list of “must visit destinations while living in Poland.” Since our time living in Europe is quickly coming to an end (NOOO!!!!) we had to fit this trip in ASAP! So, like many of our other trips, we purchased a ticket via RyanAir for under $100 and off we went. However, unlike our other trips, we now had baby H in tow! Let me tell you though, traveling with a baby was SO much easier than I thought it would be. Anyways, back to Venice.

I wasn’t sure what to expect of Venice as I have heard some people hate it and some love it. I, personally, really really really liked Venice and it does top my list of my favorite cities I have visited. Here’s why. Continue reading “Getaway Guide: Venice and Murano, Italy”

Wroclaw Soccer…er, Football

When we moved to Wroclaw, one of the things we really wanted to do was see a Wroclaw Slask football err. soccer game. (Ahh the dreaded ‘soccer vz. football’ wording; we Americans have made these terms so confusing!) Anyways, back in September we had the chance to attend a game and it really was awesome! Here’s a bit about visiting the stadium. What a great way to capitalize on the ‘experiences over material items’ craze!
Now, it may not look like many people were here but this cheering section was Loud with a capital L.  When I say it was loud, I am not kidding we could hear Continue reading “Wroclaw Soccer…er, Football”

January 6th in Poland

Today is a national holiday in Poland! And there is (yet another) stage set up in the Rynek of Wroclaw today.
That’s right, January 6th marks the Epiphany – the day the three wise men visited baby Jesus. Many people ventured into the Rynek for the celebrations and attendees can be seen wearing these cardboard crowns to commemorate the kings. FYI Most shops are closed, but restaurants and cafes in town seem to be open.
Happy January 6th, 2015!

Getaway Guide: Prague, Czech Republic

Last month, we had some friends come to visit and one of the places we went was Prague! My husband and I have visited Prague before, but that was before we moved to Poland. It is a beautiful city and worth all the hype that it gets as a must-visit place in Europe. Prague was much larger than I remembered, but just as beautiful. And, totally doable in three days or less.
