    London: Where We Ate

    London: Where We Ate Since this is the Eat Well Travel Often blog, and if you followed our instastories, you know we ate our way through London. We were pleasantly surprised by the food in London. They have a great selection of more formal cafes with beautiful cakes and desserts, as well as yummy places to eat dinner. Almost every shop we went into even offered gluten free or vegan options! To be honest, the…

    Packing for 10 Days in Europe

    I’ll start by admitting that we overpacked for this trip to Europe. But we really didn’t know what to expect weather-wise. And we thought we might go out for more fancy dinners. Anyway. Here’s what you actually need to pack for a trip like this. I’m going to assume you can’t do laundry for 10 days, but that you’re also not a fashion blogger. I’ve packed it all in a suitcase to demonstrate, and I’m…

    5 Days in London

    We just got back from an amazing trip to London and Paris! This was our first time visit in London, but somehow we managed to fit in almost everything we wanted to see. This post is an outline of all the tourist-y sites, and then we’ll have a post on the food (unreal) and the shopping (want to buy everything). Arriving in London We left the US on a Friday and arrived in London at…

    Jordan

    Our tour guide joked that Jordan wants to be the 51st state in America. Because the country has no natural resources (unlike the rest of the Middle East, they don’t have oil), they rely heavily on foreign aid and tourism. Foreign countries build specialized schools and universities to encourage development in the area. The schools are usually expensive, but students can get scholarships. Jordan also takes in any and all refugees, despite the lack of…

    Israel Tour: Jerusalem

    Next up on the tour: Jerusalem and down to the Dead Sea 🙂 I can’t describe the feeling of seeing the places where David most likely lived and walked. Obviously, in America we don’t have anything that old. Again, I wouldn’t say it confirmed my faith, but it did just make the Bible come alive in a different way. Where we stayed: Dan Boutique This place had internet! The rooms were very small and didn’t have a…

    Israel Tour: Sea of Galilee

    Back in the beginning of April, Eric and I took a two-week trip to Israel and Jordan. These were SO DIFFERENT than what we were expecting. To be honest, when I signed up, I knew it was something we should do at this time in our lives, but I didn’t think it would be so moving. I’ve never thought that I needed to visit Israel to confirm my faith, and I’m not sure that it…

    Gore Mountain Day Trips

    This winter I took 2 day trips up to Gore Mountain with friends! We stayed at a different cabin each time. There a few settings more picturesque than a cabin in the mountains after a fresh snowfall. A classic “Winter Wonderland.” We spent time curled up by the fire playing board games with friends. (Maybe it was more like dancing around the cabin to Lil’ Jon and drinking wine, but like who’s keeping track anyways?😉) Gore…

    Princess Half Marathon 2017

    Read the 2016 Princess Half Recap in this post! I’ll compare our experiences below and provide tips so your trip will be great! Princess Half Route First of all, the start line is about one mile from the gear check/ warm up area…. Yes, that means you walk a mile before the race even starts. You should know that the course runs over lots of highways. Characters are placed all over to make the route a…

    Disney Princess Enchanted 10k

    We loved this 10k much more than we expected. I usually think you should run a half marathon if you go to a half festival, and running just a 5k or 10k is kind of boring (no offense to everyone who does)… but I would say this race is totally worth the trip to Disney, even without running the half marathon. 10k Route When you run the Princess Half, you don’t run around the World Showcase at Epcot.…

    RunDisney Race Trip 2017

    After last year’s not-so-great RunDisney Princess Half experience, we were ready to try again! Where we stayed: The Dolphin As usual, we waited a little too long to book. I (Danielle) read so many blog posts about the best place to stay for runDisney races, but staying at a Disney Resort Hotel was too expensive for what you get… I had heard that the Swan & Dolphin was great because of the walking distance from the parks,…
