Happy Halloween, travelers!The wino was supposed to work an event tonight but was let free (woo hoo!) so we’re going out and about on the Upper East Side as Batman, Robin, & a Pan Am Stewardess. Woo hoo! We just assume that any deserted highway out west is a place to avoid at night. 6 Places To Have A Paranormal Experience I genuinely can’t tell if I’ve seen this before, or just feel like I have because it’s pretty much my life every.single.day. The beat of New York THIS IS HORRIFYING. A Capuchin Crypt Full Of Well-Preserved Old Friars Can you imagine a time when the speed limit was 4 miles per hour? Antique Cars…

two days in bruges

Bruges was everything we pictured. It was quaint and adorable, and the perfect place for two days of strolling around, enjoying the scenery. This charming town was added as the calm of our trip, slowing things down in between our urban hiking through Amsterdam, Brussels and London. Spoiler alert: it delivered.

amsterdam: hits & misses

As accidental as our poor planning for this trip was, hubs and I had psyched ourselves up for a laid back 10 days of city exploration… but somehow, still ended up being pretty busy during our two days in Amsterdam.

One too many attempts in college to substitute wine and liquor in activities that normally call for beer means we can safely declare this a recipe for blackout. A is for Absinthe, B is for Boozing on the New Orleans Cocktail Tour If we haven’t already checked them off, most of these cities are on our travel short list. The World’s Most Fascinating City Neighbourhoods to Explore I realized while we were navigating our way through the Atomium that I’m kind of scared of UFOs? It kind of felt like we were in one and I started to feel a little bit of anxiety if I thought about it taking off. That’s weird, right? Anyway. No…

jetsetters: @NEFootsteps

It’s that time of the week again! Today’s Jetsetter is solo world traveler and subject of our current envy, Lauren Juliff. She’s a twenty-something British girl (please see below for cute English words, which will inevitably result in the romantic and I attempting to speak in British accents for the day) who has been traveling around the world since July. She’s a girl after our own hearts, and you can read all about her adventures here (and here!) Favourite Place: Santa Monica is, and always will be, my favourite place in the world. I love everything about it and will live there one day. More importantly, favourite meal: Cheese. Or anything with cheese in. Cheese is totally…
