I first discovered Lavaux last year when I was on the train heading to Lausanne. I was watching the scenery unfold very calmly when all of a sudden the landscape opened up to an infinite view of lush vineyards and crystal clear Lac Léman (for the full effect, check out the video I shot below). […]

Just in case you couldn’t tell by now, the boyfriend and I are obsessed with food. We are constantly talking about when we will be eating, what we will be eating and when we are done eating, we pretty much start thinking about the next meal. It’s a surprise we don’t both weigh 300 lbs. Every […]

On day 5 in Lisbon, we headed back to beautiful Belém (visited on day 1) as we didn’t really realize what it had to offer during our first tour.

Day 4 was spent discovering gorgeous Cascais (pronounced kush-kaish), a coastal town situated 30 km from Lisbon and one of the richest municipalities in Portugal. The former fishing village gained fame as a resort for Portugal’s royal family in the late 19th century and early 20th century (source: Wikipedia). I have to be honest, I didn’t do […]

Robert and I have a deep fascination for the underwater world so visiting the Lisbon Oceanarium was a must for us.  Of course, the first priority of the day was food and Robert’s morning ritual was to get fresh pastries from local bakeries.
