Our trulli, ready to go out for breakfast! Breakfast was inside the restaurant just around the corner named Miseria Enobilta.… Read More Alberobello: The Story Land

Really, not many people know about this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We are in Alberobello, Italy right now – a little more than half of our vacation and wanted… Read More Sneak peek at our Europe 2015 Trip!
My goal is to visit Europe once a year when the weather is warm and I can’t wait for this year’s trip especially after the infamous Boston winter where we broke the record of the snowiest winter ever!
