weekend warriors // venice with a toddler

Every year since we got married in 2010, we try and take an anniversary trip to celebrate. In the states, we usually planned our annual vacation for the fall, and just rolled everything into one. Living in London, we’re beyond lucky that weekend trips to some amazing destinations are so easy and (relatively) affordable. Think Tuscany, Copenhagen, and somewhat recently, Venice. Ah, yeah… Venice with a toddler? Si. The thing is, we’ve been to Venice before. Our first trip was on our honeymoon, so we felt relatively well-versed with what to expect. A few people raised their eyebrows when we mentioned we were taking Margot. The ones who asked if we were taking her buggy…

one week in gozo // postcards from malta

I’ve been sitting on my pictures from our early summer trip to Malta for a while now. Every time I try to cobble together a post, I realize… we didn’t really do much. But this gem of the Mediterranean is well worth your time, so imma prove it with a little round-up of digital postcards from Malta. Sure, I could bore you with riveting recaps detailing all the pool lounging and island driving we did. But instead of telling you, I’ll show you. We spent the entire time on Malta’s smaller island of Gozo. This tiny island is known for its natural beauty and beaches, which are apparently better than those on Malta’s main island.…

36 hours in stockholm (and then some more)

A few weeks ago, Margot and I jetted off for what was meant to be a quick, 36 hours in Stockholm. We were traveling with our Geneva-based friend & auntie, Amy — of Friendsgiving fame — who was there on a business trip. Margot LOVES crashing business trips so, naturally, a mid-week girls’ trip was born. If you follow us on Instagram or Twitter then you already know that we hit some bumps getting home from this intended quick trip. I promise to get to that later, but first, the good news: I love Stockholm. We had the perfect combo of amazing weather, food, and shopping, and it confirmed my theory. Scandinavia is, hands down,…

weekend warriors // an introduction to berlin

In March, 44 days after Trump was sworn-in as president, we took a long weekend trip to Berlin. These might seem unrelated, but, I assure you, they’re not. On this particular weekend, visiting the former seat of the Third Reich and home to another paranoid fascist felt fitting. We arrived on the same day he accused Obama (over Twitter, of course) of wiretapping his phones. Two days later, he signed a new executive order. This time, he was reinstating the travel ban and suspending the refugee program in the US. Despite the fact that this was my first visit, and in light of everything stateside, I shied away from visiting the city’s most famous sites.…

weekend warriors // 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, er, Milano,  for the first time. To be totally honest, I had minimal expectations. Milan seems like a city that most people either love or hate. The ones who love it, love the nightlife, restaurant scene, and shopping. While this sounds fab, they’re not inherently baby-friendly activities, so Milano was temporarily on the backburner. But when an opportunity presents itself to visit a new city, who am I to decline? So, with a week’s notice, we were on our way to…
