Thanksgiving in Bali

We often get questions about what it is like to live overseas, particularly when a holiday arrives.  As Thanksgiving is Eric’s favorite holiday, it is the one day of the year that Eric finds himself wishing he were in the US. As we don’t like Christmas,... read more

Bodega 1900 Barcelona

Vermouth is making a big comeback in Spain, in part because it often has a slightly higher alcohol content and can be ordered all over town.  This makes it easy and cheap for young hipsters to get drunk quickly. But, at Bodega 1900, they are taking a more traditional... read more

Lunch With an Italian Winemaker – Corte d’Aibo

I never imagined I would be sitting down for an amazing meal, at an organic winery, in the foothills of Bologna, to have lunch with an Italian winemaker. But, that is exactly what Yummy Italy organized during our day touring Emilia Romagna.

We pulled up to Corte d’Aibo, after a winding drive through the hills south of Bologna. The organic vineyard includes a series of buildings, including an old farmhouse that has been turned into an agritourismo, complete with guest rooms. The property overlooks vineyards, wheat fields, and fruit trees. On one side lies a biolake, a freshwater pool with a natural filtration system. On the other side, a rustic farmhouse restaurant, with a wrap around porch, overlooking the hillside.

Truffle Hunting in Italy – Brava Nera!

For some reason, I have been infatuated with truffles since the first time I tried them.  Eric goes along with my fascination, but is not as obsessed as I am.  There is just something about the smell of them that just sends me into a little bit of a tizzy. Before... read more

A Homestay In the Italian Countryside

Generally, when you are slightly lost in the remote Italian countryside, using your phone’s GPS, and the battery is about to run out, the last thing you want to hear from the driver is “we are almost out of gas.” But, that is how our weekend homestay in the Italian... read more

Bubble Tea – Tasty Tuesday

I don’t know why I am so addicted to bubble tea, but it is hard for me to walk by a bubble tea shop anywhere in the world without placing an order.  Although easy to find in many areas of Southeast Asia, and a staple of life in Taiwan, I generally equate bubble tea... read more

Living Like Locals in Barcelona

This was our third trip to Barcelona, truly one of my favorite cities in the world.  But this time, it felt like it was our first. In the past, we have always booked hotels close to Las Ramblas, the main tourist drag between Placa Cataluyna and the water.  The Gothic... read more
