As you can gather from the photo above, we were in Budapest at the start of Christmas Market season. Our one month here started on Oct 29, and ended on Nov 29 when we headed north to Krakow Poland. During our time in Budapest, our friend Matt came to visit for two weeks, ten days […]

Our Back Story + Verdict By the time we got to Edinburgh, what turned out to be one of our favorite cities, we were pooped. After galavanting around Europe for nearly eight weeks, we were ready to slow down big time. We had booked a four star hotel through our Chase Sapphire Reserve. You can […]

For us Pacific Northwesterners, the gloomy, cold, and wet country of Ireland felt like home. As far as our hour months in Europe, we were pretty freaking excited for renting another car and driving around Ireland. Specifically the Ring of Kerry. Killarney & Ring of Kerry We flew from Amsterdam to Dublin, picked up our […]

The Verdict Up Front Let’s just get straight to it. After Brussels and Bruges, I was disappointed with Amsterdam. Aside from the quirky row houses and seeing Anne Frank’s house, it wasn’t anything special. So this one’s going to be short and sweet. Amsterdam is overpriced, busy, and not green (not in early October anyway). […]

The Details On our original European road trip itinerary, we had Amsterdam for five days before heading over the water to Ireland and Scotland. But an old friend from college suggested stopping off in Belgium if we could swing it. We went for it, allotting a day and a half in both Brussels and Bruges. […]

Have you ever heard a bad review of the Swiss Alps? Probs not. Because they are freaking gorgeous. The hype is real for reason. I hope this post is a testament to that. Munich Pit-stop First off, we must visit our pit-stop in Germany on our way from Hallstatt, Austria to Grindelwald, Switzerland. The drive […]

The FitsPRO Podcast episode four is for trainers and trainees alike. If you’re into or have ever been into lifting weights, then you’ve likely had the desire to lift heavy.  You’ve seen a girl on insta woman-handle a barbell, or you have a client who finally made that transition from cardio bunny to the free-weights section […]

I don’t know how I don’t have more pictures from this glorious location. So I hope you can grasp it’s beauty from my sad representation. They tell it how it is We can’t talk about Hallstatt without mentioning Austrian culture. Just note that the people can be brash and filterless as a whole. They don’t […]

We must start off saying that Slovenia is the most underrated country we have visited thus far. It has the greenest hillsides you’ve ever seen with adorable french chalets style homes scattered about in small clusters. And we mustn’t forger the back drop of alpine mountain ranges. It is a quaint and naturally beautiful country […]

The only M.O. in Kotor was to hike to the fortress wall. Which worked out nicely for us as the weather on our first day there was thunder, wind and rain. Which I personally loved due to our amazing view of the bay. Our airbnb was another win in Kotor. I took a time-lapse of […]
