Travel the world in 3 meals, 2 days, 1 city

My name is Ofeibea, and I am a foodie. It’s hardly a secret that yes, I love food. Yes, I have a food dance and yes, I am willing to follow where food leads. In this case, I’m celebrating my home city – the cultural melting pot that is London, and sharing just how easy […]


48 Hours in Florence

Florence is one of my favorite cities in Italy. The architecture, the culture, the food and the people drew me in as soon as I stepped into the city. I only spent 48 hours in Florence and although short, I was still able to take in the beauty and wonders the city had to offer. Explore […]

Madrid is a bustling, colorful and vibrant city!

Outlook Festival 2014

Outlook. Rocks. I don’t know how I formed the opinion that Outlook was solely a week-long Drum & Bass festival in Pula, Croatia, which wasn’t a big selling point for me; but I was ready to “go hard,” and try something new. My cousin decided that turning the big Three-O had to be celebrated in style, so as a […]

Vienna is for Wine Lovers

Vienna (called Wien {pronounced vine} in German) has the most vineyards within a city limit than any other capital city in the world. Though I am a wine enthusiast, I had never thought about traveling to a destination solely based on its notable characteristics, but once I learned about Vienna’s wine culture it was the deciding […]

Sight For Sore Eyes: Flower Carpet of Brussels

I love to travel more than anything. But I have to admit that Brussels wasn’t necessarily on my “Top 5 Places to Visit” list…until now. That is because Brussels’ Flower Carpet just bumped it up several notches.   This wonderful display is a wonderful display of horticulture artistry. To put it simply, Brussels’ Flower carpet is […]

When my friend planned a week long group trip to the Amalfi Coast, I immediately knew I wanted to take on a couple of extra days to visit another city solo.  After a bit of internal back and forth, Firenze was the winner! Aaahhh, yes, this small romantic town, home of the Renaissance, would be all […]

5 Must Sees in Berlin

Oh Berlin, Berlin.  I am now embarrassed to say this city was not initially on my list of places to visit. It actually ended up on my itinerary more out of convenience than anything else. I had read the articles and reviews calling it young, hip and vibrant and yet I wasn’t completely sold, or […]

24 Hours in Nice

When people think of the South of France, usually images of celebrities, yachts and glamour come to mind (hey, Bey and Jay), but there’s more to this glitzy region of the world that can be discovered in just 24 hours. I’d just finished up an exhausting few days prior to arriving in Nice. I was […]

German Wine Festival

When you think of Germany, what comes to mind? Perhaps most travelers would say Oktoberfest with its neverending flow of beer, food and camaraderie, or perhaps you think of Berlin and the Berlin Wall; maybe you think of Opera and Classical music as Germany was the home of Brahms, Bach and Beethoven among others. Well […]
