London Itinerary Part 2

I had our days in London planned out to the hour and it was really nice to be able to get around the city so easily. Walking is certainly the best form of transportation, but we also got tickets for the hop-on, hop-off bus which took us to almost all the sites we wanted to see. In hindsight, we should have bought the “London Pass” because it included the bus and a few of the locations we visited, but you live and learn. Covent Gardens was one of my favorite spots we stopped at. It reminded me a lot of…

London Itinerary Part 1

If I’m being honest, our London trip was a whirl-wind. As I was compiling the photos for these next few posts, I was shocked that I couldn’t remember what went where and where we were when. There were so many amazing things we did over three days (demonstrated by our step count) that I’m taking some creative freedom in these itineraries and doing my best to remember what followed what. That being said, I am going to touch on some major highlights of the city, so stay tuned. We began our trip early on our first morning, in line, in…

Ireland Itinerary Part 3

Our final day in Ireland brought us from one coast to the other. We traveled East from Galway to Dublin where we arrived at the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed at. I feel like accommodations are never my favorite part of a trip- my family normally goes with a “just stay to sleep and eat kind of deal.” However, Carton House blew my mind. The grounds were magnificent and we felt like we were staying in an updated version of the mansions here in Newport. It was interesting to see the clash between modern and historic in the…

Ireland Itinerary Part 2

Even though we didn’t stay in many cities on our trip, Galway City, which hosted the beginning of our second day in Ireland, was my favorite. The city center was a short, local bus ride away from our hotel and contained lively streets and great shops. I found an Irish knit wool sweater which I had been on the hunt for and we all picked up some souvenirs to bring home. Furthermore, a good portion of the city was a walking section so we didn’t even have to worry about cars. After a jaunt in the city, we went back…

Ireland Itinerary Part 1

On to Ireland! The second part of our European adventure brought us down to Dublin, which was a short drive away from our hotel in Barna, a small harbor town outside of Galway. We chose Galway as our hub city because it was a smaller town, nestled away on the coast. Amazingly enough, we arrived just in time for race week, but more on that later. Barna is a small city and there isn’t much around, but the Twelve Co. where we stayed was wonderful and served ice cold Balmers so overall we couldn’t complain. Plus, it was a five…

Caitlin’s Kitchen: Homemade Fresh Tomato Sauce

Picture this: it’s late August and suddenly you have a boat load of tomatoes ripe and red in your garden. What is there to do but make homemade fresh tomato sauce? I may have a bit of Italian in my blood (shout out to grandma’s cousins in Toronto!) but Italian food hasn’t been passed down recipe by recipe in my family. My suite mates from college, all who are very Italian, taught me that gravy means you start your sauce with meat and that calzones require you to yell at each other the entire time you bake. That being said,…

Scotland Itinerary Part 3

Our third and final day in Scotland was a whirlwind. We started by exploring Dunrobin Castle. The property was immense, complete with beautiful gardens where we saw a live falconry show. The birds were flying right overhead, close enough to reach up and touch! They even had a Peregrine Falcon, the fastest bird in the world. One of my favorite things in Scotland was the architecture. The inside decor actually reminded me a lot of the mansions in Newport. The castles and manors, however, looked their age- in a good way! It’s so interesting when visiting abroad to consider that…
