a weekend in milano

If you caught our recent post about exploring a city on a time crunch, or have been following @lazytravelers on Instagram since at least November, then you saw that I (fairly) recently visited Milan for the first time. To be totally honest, I had minimal expectations. Milan seems like a city that most people either love or hate — and the ones who love it, love the nightlife, restaurant scene, and shopping. While this sounds fab to me, they’re not inherently baby-friendly activities, so Milan was mostly on the backburner, at least for the time being. But when an opportunity presents itself to visit a new city, who am I to decline? And so, with…

#LTcolorado // the lazy girls’ guide to skiing & snowshoeing

It is incredibly rare that we go on a trip somewhere and voluntarily do something that requires physical exertion. If you are surprised by this, then you must have assumed our blog name was one hell of a misdirect. However, there are exceptions to every rule, and as such, we’d like to make a case for winter sports. They are, arguably, the perfect lazy girls’ athletic activity of choice. Think about it: the cold temps demand pure coziness before and after, and no other sport has an attached cool-down activity that actively encourages you to booze it up. Have you ever heard of après-jog or après-spin??? We didn’t think so, SoulCycle. Après-ski, however, is basically the…

#LTcolorado // a weekend in breckenridge with @InvitedHome

As you may have guessed over the years, there’s little we love more than bundling up and going on a snowy adventure somewhere mountainous. Don’t get us wrong, we very happily grew up with four true seasons, and will always welcome summer with open arms. When it comes to claiming our homebase, we are city girls, through and through. But there’s just something about wide open spaces, and we will always have a soft spot for cozy alpine escapes, ideally full of red wine. This is why, when InvitedHome reached out to us about their portfolio of luxury properties in beautiful destinations, we didn’t have to browse long before settling on a ski weekend in…

#LTcolorado // eating & drinking our way through breckenridge

When we realized that, thanks to InvitedHome, a snowy ski escapade to the Rockies was going to kick off our 2017 travels, we were more than a little excited. Immediately, our 2015 alpine adventure in Val d’Isere came to mind, and visions of a weekend full of pjs and red wine danced in our heads. As you may recall from that trip, we didn’t really do too much. Ashley was one million weeks pregnant, so skiing and drinking were out for her, and our chalet came with two amazing hosts who cooked us all our meals and made sure every need was met. Why leave?! This time, we found ourselves at Columbine Rock Lodge —…

the lazy girls’ guide to navigating a new city in a time crunch

When it comes to travel, we consider ourselves to have many varied areas of expertise. Need to know what cultural stuff you can skip in favor of eating your way through any given European capital city? We’re your girls. Wondering what IS the right amount of red wine to drink on an overnight flight so you don’t arrive looking like a zombie straight out of the depths of hell? You call us. Maximizing your time in a new city, cramming in as much wonder as you possibly can in 18 hours or less? Ehhhh…. that is just not our style. In news that will shock no one, we don’t really like to feel pressure to…
