Take me to church

Oh Italy… You have really stolen my heart. Your food. Your sun rising on the Amalfi Coast. Your Aperol Spritz. Your food. Your smiles on everyone’s face. Your churches. Your food. Wait, the churches are what I was planning on talking about today… I’ll keep food for another post. Even though, as you can witness, […]

Italian adventures: A taste of Sicily

Italy has won many of my traveling destinations hesitations… Berlin or Rome? Rome! Eastern Europe or Southern Italy? Well, Italy. Not that I’m not planning on visiting Berlin or Eastern Europe anytime soon, but the mood always seems to be craving sunshine, gorgeous sceneries and dishes made of fresh grilled fish and melt-in-the mouth veggies […]

Where Audrey does Emily (Brontë)

Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same. ~Emily Brontë – Wuthering Heights As I’m zipping up my suitcase, ready to take off to wild Yorkshire Dales, it was only fair to pay a tribute to Emily. I wish you all a wonderful week, and I’ll see you in September, my […]

Oia, Santorini

Greece, from Athens to Santorini

Nowadays, 40 is an important birthday. Some people chose to have big parties and bigger cakes, some people chose to draw their sorrow (boo now I’m going back down again) in lots of alcoholic beverages, and some people decide to gather the close friends and take a trip in a place they fancy. That’s what […]

Catedral de la Santa Creu

Barcelona: a summer postcard

I had promised cyber-dating expert and my “Twitter friend” @JulieSpira a full and detailed report on my first vacation with the #bf. After 4 happy months of juggling our overly busy work lives with our romantic life, we had found a good groove. Could five days face-to-face in a foreign city break that rhythm and […]

Postcard from Rome

After Amsterdam and Philadelphia, my Adventures in Heels took me, this month, to the wonderful city of Rome, Italy. The occasion? Two Philly friends (one of them being Italian) were getting married in the outskirts of Rome. What better way to visit a new city than, getting together with old friends, meeting up new people […]

Postcard from Amsterdam

On a cold Easter weekend, three girls headed to Amsterdam by way of Bruxelles. The ugliness of their tiny (but very well located) hotel room, encouraged them to walk the city, up and down, only stopping along the way to sample the good things this city has to offer: cafés, museums, shopping and very pretty […]

Fasten your seat belts

One thing I love more than anything is to see plane (or train) tickets piling up on my desk, as as many promises of new adventures. And right now, they do… I’m happy as a clam in my new home (currently writing this post from the warmth of my bed as I watch snowflakes fly […]

Adventures in heels: Barcelona, Spain

It has been quite the stop-and-go organizing this week vacation with friends. Taking in consideration everyone’s agenda, everyone’s hopes and expectations, everyone’s past destinations… We talked about a lot of things, we made a million calls and emails to homes-for-rent, we lost some players along the way but in the end, we got it squared […]
