Keeping Resolutions at Goldmoor Inn in Galena

  We were recently the guests of the Goldmoor Inn in Galena. All opinions are our own and reflect our experiences.   January. Time to set your goals for the year. There are the typical resolutions. Lose weight. Eat right. Exercise more. Maybe you’ve set some resolutions for yourself. This year I’ve decided to focus […]

Nuremberg Christmas Market

Nuremberg Christmas Market

  One of our favorite things to do during the holiday season is visit Christmas markets. Whether at home in Chicago or visiting in Europe we love them all. One of the oldest and largest Christmas markets is held in Nuremberg, Germany. Apparently, despite numerous investigations, there still is no solid proof as to which […]

Culinary Roots in Mazatlán, Mexico

Culinary Roots in Mazatlán, Mexico

  One of the things that we like to do when exploring new destinations is experience the food culture through festivals and culinary events. While recently visiting Mazatlán, the second-largest city in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico, I attended the Culinary Roots event. People may know Mazatlán for its stunning beaches or its 13 mile long […]

Gers The Heart of Gascony and South West France

Gers The Heart of Gascony and South West France

  Many travelers seek the large cities like Paris, Rome or London when deciding where to travel. While we love exploring and experiencing these large cities, we also enjoy spending time in the smaller towns too. Our recent visit to France had us trekking through the south west region of the Midi-Pyrénées.   After tasting […]

Toulouse la Ville Rose of Southwestern France

Toulouse la Ville Rose of Southwestern France

  Visiting France has always been high on our travel planning lists. We enjoy the French way of life. The lifestyle of working to live, rather than living to work. Enjoying a glass of wine at lunch, savoring every meal and enjoying each day for all it’s worth feel just right to us. When we had […]

Tasty Virginia Beach

  When you think of Virginia Beach you probably think sun, fun and fresh seafood. And you’d be right. It’s the vacation trifecta. But did you know that Virginia Beach actually has three beaches all with a totally different vibe? Each beach area is tastier than the next so be sure to plan ahead and not […]

Celebrate 500 Years of German Beer At Stuttgart Canstatter Festival

  Anyone who knows me even just a bit knows that I love most German things. Having been raised by a pack of crazy German people I celebrate the German lifestyle whenever possible. September always has me thinking about Germany, beer and Oktoberfest celebrations. Sure, everyone knows about the Grand Daddy of them all – THE […]

While visiting gorgeous areas of Northern England, we met several people engaged in passionate flavorful pursuits in food and beverage. We thought you’d love to meet them. So here are a few […]

Food and Fun in Cartmel England

Food and Fun in Cartmel England

As Food Travelists, we are always on the lookout for small places with big flavors. We love local establishments with eats and memorable dishes that provide an insight into the culture of a place we are visiting. Sometimes they come in the shape of unique and local ingredients. Perhaps they have a Michelin star or more. […]

Tasty Northern England

Tasty Northern England

When we think about some of our favorite meals ever, we often think of certain elements. Cheese is up there a lot. Charcuterie is too. Delicious fish is a great find, maybe smoked fish. But we don’t reminisce about industrial large scale products. We like products produced by local people who care about other people and their quality […]
