If you are a frequent reader of this blog, you’ll know that we are constantly looking for cool, inexpensive and unique places to stay. You’ll also know that we aren’t typical “hostel” people. By which I mean, we are no longer 22 and willing to bunk down with 6 of our newest, closest and drunkest friends. However, this stereotypical hostel experience has changed…a lot. Many hostels have double rooms and are just as designy as a boutique hotel, and come with a better price tag. That’s why we are so pleased to announce our partnership with hostelbookers.com for our trip … Continue Reading →
Emily from Invisible Glamour shares her brewery experience from the top of the world
As we made a broad loop around the island of Tromsø, Norway I looked eagerly out the airplane window and realized for the first time in my life I was north of the Arctic Circle. I wanted, more than anything, to remember that view forever – even if, from above, our approach to Tromsø was oddly similar to a late night landing in Des Moines. It was mid-afternoon, after all. And it was December. Everything was pitch black, the streetlights were on, and that’s about how … Continue Reading →

From Edinburgh to Oban Through the Trossachs National Park
Although we normally like to use public transportation when we travel, our route from Edinburgh to Oban just wouldn’t work without a car. So, armed with our international driving permits, we picked up a car in Edinburgh and hit the road.
Driving on the left took some getting used to, and right turns were a little hairy at first, but by the end of the first day, it was old hat and we were whizzing past farms and fields and lochs and hills into the highlands.
Having a car also … Continue Reading →&
Romance, Murder, Intrigue!
At the bottom of the Royal Mile lies Holyrood Palace. Unlike Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood has never been a fortress, relying instead on the spiritual power of its abbey to offer sanctuary and safety to its royal patrons and guests. This strategy has had mixed results.
Holyrood was originally founded as an Augustinian monastery in the 12th century by King David I. The monastery quickly grew into a large complex which included a church, cloisters, a refectory and a guesthouse. The church was sacked by the English in 1544, Scottish Protestants in 1559 & 1688 and then finally … Continue Reading →&

Their mission is to serve local food and they work with farmers across Wisconsin to source the best and freshest ingredients in the state.
