MyMan had a business conference in Ferrara, Italy for a few days last week. He was able to have a tour of the Castello Estence while he was there. It was dark when they did their tour, so some of the pictures are not as bright. This is a large replica of the castle that … More Ferrara to Venice
The other day, MyMan had a haircut appointment in Rotterdam, so we all decided to go along with him. His appointment was early in the morning, so after he was done we walked to Markthal to have a look around. It was market day that day, so it was bustling! Very interesting architecture can be found … More Markthal in Rotterdam
Technically it was the girls’ last day in Montreal – my plane left late in the day the next day. But we still had some sites to see before they left to go back home. We decided to head back down to Old Montreal and visit the shops. We stumbled across an adorable shop that … More Last Day in Montreal
Another excellent tour the girls and I did while in Montreal was go on a bike tour around the city. It was not too long or strenuous, and very informative and fun! We booked the tour through Fitz & Follwell. Highly recommend them! Our guide loved his job, and it showed! He was able to make the … More Biking Around Montreal
Back in May, my besties and I decided to take a girl’s trip to Montreal, Canada. It was sort of a half way point for us. We were here for a long weekend, so we made the most of it! Montreal was absolutely beautiful! Such a great city with lots to offer. The weather while we … More Montreal – Beer Bikes and Food Tours!
MyMan had to fly out in the morning, so we had breakfast together, and then he left for the airport to head back to the Netherlands. I met up with the remaining folks in our group and we went to China Town to have a look around. They had some interesting statues all around. And … More Last Day in San Francisco
One couple had to fly back home the previous night, so we were down to 3 couples on the trip. And myself and another wife didn’t go on the second day of rafting, but we had our own fun (more on that later)! The second day was a lot more intense! They went on a Class 4-5 … More Whitewater Rafting Day 2
The whole point of visiting San Francisco in the first place was our best friend wanted to go whitewater rafting for his birthday. After a great night’s sleep after our day of food, we all got up early to head 2 hours northeast of San Fran to Auburn, California to set out rafting over the next … More Whitewater Rafting Day 1
The next day, our friend had booked us to go on a Food Tour through Russian Hill. The girls on the trip were excited because we had had a great food tour experience on a girl’s weekend in Montreal, Canada earlier this year. So we had high expectations. One thing about San Francisco that everyone knows….it … More Eating Our Way Through Russian Hill
One of our best friends turned 40 this year, and he wanted to celebrate this milestone in San Francisco with a few of his closest friends. MyMan and I were invited to go, and fortunately – we were able to! It’s a city neither of us had been to, and we both very much wanted to … More A Whirlwind Summer!
