Not sure if you could tell or not, but Omri and I love to eat. And drink. So, when we saw the Cheltenham Food Festival was on, we knew it was a must see! Click through to read on

Explore: Bath

While we were in the UK last December, we stayed in Bath for one evening. We didn’t see too much of the city, but what we did see was beautiful. We returned one weekend to find that it was just as wonderful as we remembered it to be. Click through to read on

Cream Tea

I think I have a problem. A tea problem! I’m addicted, and I don’t think it’s the caffeine talking. Cream Tea, Afternoon Tea, High Tea, I need it!

During our first few days I was seeing signs around town that advertised “Sunday Lunch” and “Sunday Roast”.

Explore: Paris, Part 1

When I say “Paris”, an inevitable sigh is followed. For those of you who don’t know, or have never had a long enough conversation with me (but let’s be real, it ALWAYS comes up), I studied abroad in Paris in 2009 with Roxanne. Omri and I went to Paris for a delayed anniversary trip and …
