After doing research about accommodation, going with anContinue reading “5 Days in Madrid”

72 Hours in Vienna

2018 Travel Destination List

Before I left for Copenhagen, I researched as many restaurants as I could since 1) I’m an over planner, 2) I have a sort of complicated diet (no meat except fish, no eggs, and some dairy products). So usually I have some trouble finding things on menus besides (most) salads. Of course we went toContinue reading “Dining in Copenhagen”
