Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Beer, Food, Travel

Amsterdam is a city best known for vices. Drugs, alcohol, and the Red Light District are the most iconic images most have of the Dutch city, but there is actually a surprising amount to do that’s more family friendly. With lovely architecture, a delightful beer scene, museums and attractions, and excellent restaurants, there’s a ton to see and do. I just like getting off of the streets before night falls and it gets weird. Somehow […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Beer, Food, Hiking, Norway, Travel

I don’t miss the rains down in Bergen According to Wikipedia and other, less legitimate sources like the actual website for the city, Bergen, Norway supposedly has more rainy days than any other city in the world. We certainly didn’t see anything to prove this during our visit to Norway’s second largest city which was experiencing a warm and sunny summer day without a cloud in the sky.

The British are Running: Exploring Boston on Foot

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Beer, Fitness, Food, Running, Travel

Boston is a city where history greets visitors on every corner. It’s a well preserved city where buildings that stood over founding fathers, massacres, and battles still stand today. Exploring the city on foot not only allows visitors to see the major sights, but also allows for becoming fully immersed in the history that surrounds as well.

The perfect beer tour in the Finger Lakes It can take a while to realize and admit that you aren’t as young as you used to be. For us, having twins was a wake up call that we needed to start doing things a bit differently. Throw in a few rough days after relatively tame nights of drinks, and we knew we needed to do things differently. To celebrate a bachelor and bachelorette party with […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Beer, Croatia, Food, Travel

The capital of Croatia, Zagreb, is more than a little different from much of the rest of the country. A country known for seaside towns, medieval walled towns, and hilltop towns, Zagreb is much more of a European capital city with a cosmopolitan, culturally diverse, university town feeling than the seaside towns steeped in tradition.
