  • Off-Season Road Trip Through France: What Not to Do

    What not to do on a France road trip through Bordeaux, Avignon, Seillans, Provence, and the French Riviera!

    Our off-season road trip through France was always doomed. It’s not just that Jeremy and I seem to attract disaster like magnets made of whatever the opposite of disaster is. But we have particularly awful luck when it comes to cars. But here we were, renting one in France in January. What could go wrong? … Everything, of course. This is the story of our doomed French road trip. Or as I like to call it, the story of the time we ran a BMW into into a medieval castle.

  • 12 Charming Things to Do in Copenhagen in Winter

    Copenhagen, Denmark in the winter is a magical holiday fairytale land full of Christmas cheer and hygge! Here's all the best things to do in Copenhagen in the winter.

    When we stepped off the plane in Copenhagen on a brisk December afternoon, we weren’t sure what to expect. We’d seen pictures of Europe in the winter, which had given us high expectations of fairytale castles dusted with snow, Christmas Markets filled with good cheer, and random carolers stumbling around drunk off of pudding or whatever like a scene from a Dickens
    Well, not only is Copenhagen the EXACT vision of that European Christmas dream that we had been unrealistically hoping for, but it’s somehow EVEN BETTER. There are the canals of Nyhavn dotted with colorful tall, thin houses, adorned with wreaths and pine boughs. A Christmas Market around every corner, wafting the tantalizing smells of gløgg and sizzling bratwurst and fluffy aebleskiver. Hygge floating around giving imaginary air-hugs in droves. Copenhagen is a holiday dream come true!

  • 14 Adorably Romantic Things to do in Bruges, Belgium in Winter

  • The Brussels Beer and Chocolate Tour

    The Brussels Beer & Chocolate Tour: why choose just one? This Brussels food tour combines the best of both worlds!

    It’s no secret that we love a good food tour when exploring a new place. Food tours are the best way to explore a city on foot while learning about its culture and history, in between stuffing yourself with as much excellent local food as you can stand. So we couldn’t leave Brussels without doing a Belgian food tour that focused on our two favorite Belgian icons: beer and chocolate (sorry, Jean Claude Van Damme). Luckily, The Brussels Journey created a tour that combines the best of 2 worlds: the Brussels Beer and Chocolate Tour! Get you a tour that can do both.
