For our first major trip back in the traveling saddle after baby, we wanted to stick with a relatively short flight and, again, stay zika-free. We settled on Bermuda, a quick and easy two hour direct flight from Atlanta, mainly because we could pay for our flights with miles. As this was sort of a pin-the-tail-on-the-globe decision, we were unaware until later that Bermuda just so happens to be one of the most expensive countries in the world...oopsies! All that said, we had an incredible time (without completely breaking the bank) with some of our very best friends and, Elizabeth's first international trip was a major success!Read More
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaack!! After taking an unintentional year and a half hiatus from the ol' blog-a-roo, guess who's back! Tell your friends!
Not much has changed since I last sat down to write one of these...oh wait, just kidding...yes it has! We had a baby!Read More
By far, one of the coolest experiences of my life was going to Expo Milano 2015, otherwise known as the World's Fair!
While we did not plan this prior to our trip, by the time we arrived in Milan we had heard so much about the Expo that we knew we had to go. With 145 participating countries and covering almost 500 acres, we really only cracked the surface on our one night visit to the Expo grounds. The sheer size of each pavilion alone was impressive, but coupled with some of the most innovative architecture, exhibitions, landscaping and more food options than I ever thought possible, the Expo blew us away.
Expo 2015, which is expected to draw 20 million visitors to the city of MIlan, is largely to thank for many restoration projects around the city, including the Duomo and Navigli canals that Kyle and I visited. It also played a large role in Milan's selection as #1 in The New York TImes' list of 52 Places to Go in 2015!
*Tip: Skip the Chinese food and go to Turkey for a gyro and some baklava!
