Torredembarra – Historical Village and Beaches

A number of times in the planning phase of a trip I’ll look at a name and think “I’ll go there.” Not for any particular reason, but just sheer interest in seeing as much of this fair planet as I can. When the decision was made to step foot in Spain, I knew four days…

Nutella Croissant Pudding

On a conversation with Nina recently we discussed our mutual adoration and love of food, such love that it made us excited just talking about our favorite meals. Of all times of day that gets my most attention though, it has to be breakfast. Breaking the fast and my need of a sweet palette to…

Most people are going back to work after their holiday break and their year began in a mess, meanwhile, storms are causing havoc to lives Stateside. Yes, 2014 has come in rumbling…

December 2013
