With so many things to do in Krakow, I decided to split up my recommendations into separate posts. This post focuses on the amazing jazz scene that I didn't expect to find in Krakow, and gives you a peek at an awesome contemporary jazz band that will blow your mind. 

Have you ever been to or thought about going to #Poland? Let me know if you have any questions!

Of all the things to do in Krakow, checking out a live jazz performance (or two, or three) is a must. Here's my take on the jazz scene in Krakow.

Just got back from an incredible wine tour on Santorini thanks to and Santorini Wine Adventure! Such an unforgettable experience, I can't believe how much I learned, ate, drank, etc.

More info to come soon, but now it's time for the sunset and a glass of my favorite wine from today - a sweet, delicious Vinsanto. This one is like pure liquid toffee with hints of coffee and cinnamon...pairs perfectly with some bitter dark chocolate and the person you love most by your side ;)

I recently spent an incredible weekend in Cesenatico, Italy on the Adriatic Coast, and it is definitely one of my favorite spots in Italy so far!

Here's a brief overview of the beautiful seaside town, and some recommendations on what to do, see and eat while you're there. 

Warning: this article is photo heavy, so it may ignite some tinges of wanderlust!

Beautiful view from the balcony here at #HotelSanSamuele  in Venice! It's incredibly quiet and peaceful here considering we're just a couple streets from the most popular square.

I absolutely love it here and highly recommend it as a beautiful and affordable hotel option in Venice!

Had such an incredible tour of Venice today with #TourLeaderVenice. His "Off-the-beaten-path" tour takes you to some of the most interesting spots all over Venice & he shows you so many amazing/quirky/funny parts of Venice that you would never read about in a guide book or find on your own!

I highly recommend his tour if you're ever in Venice!

Looking for things to do in Rome? This is my #1 recommendation, whether you'll be there for one day or 2 weeks! 

4 hours of amazing Italian food, local history & fun. Seriously, what more could you want in a tour?!

A lot of people go to Venice Italy with only 1-3 days to experience the magnificent city. If you do this one thing, you'll definitely be making the most of your time and money!

"It is one thing to visit Venice, take a gondola ride and admire its aquatic beauty, and yet another thing entirely to learn why anyone decided to build such a great city on sinking marshland, why there is an absolutely crazy statue face over the door of the church tower, how the dark secrets and lush party scene of the past has influenced the version of Venice we know today, and the harsh realities of a local’s daily life."

Wondering what to do while you're in Venice Italy for a few days? This one option is probably the best use of your time and money...

Have you ever stayed in an #organic  farm hotel before?! I had my first experience at one in Siracusa, Sicily and it was AMAZING.

I highly recommend +Bio-Agriturismo La Casa di Melo for anyone who likes healthy/organic living, peaceful surroundings, gorgeous sunsets & super friendly locals! Ask me if you have any questions :)

If you're thinking of visiting Venice, I really recommend staying at Hotel San Samuele! It's so close to everything, but is on a pretty quiet and peaceful street that doesn't seem to get too overcrowded with tourists (that's hard to come by in Venice!)

More photos to come :)
