Aruba and Curacao
I spent a week on these two pretty islands, havens for relaxation, pampering with food, beautiful beaches and stunningly colourful scenery. Planning a Caribbean getaway? Check out these posts!

Italy and France
After two and a half weeks in Europe, I’m in love with the architecture, the history, the artwork, sculptures, and of course the food! We walked over green water canals in Venice, checked out the Duomo in Florence, and toured around to Siena, San Gimignano, and Pisa, then took the train through Naples to Sorrento. Amid lemon groves and swirling blue seas, we made our way to Positano, then back to Rome. Our final stop was in Paris, where we visited the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, Montmartre, and the iconic Eiffel Tower.

We spent 3 wonderful weeks Down Under in May 2011 and saw the Great Ocean Road, met kangaroos, and went wine-tasting in Melbourne, went scuba diving in the Whitsunday Islands, hung out on the beach in Noosa, lived the happy hippie life in Byron Bay, and acquired a taste of city life in Sydney.

Paul McCartney in Montreal was the best.

New York City
The only thing better than autumn in New York, is going there on your honeymoon as well! We had a fantastic time sight seeing and eating great food in the Big Apple in October 2011.
