Athens is filled with beauty, charm, and plenty of oh la la!
When you think of European romance, you probably imagine Paris, or maybe Rome. And I don't disagree! But I think Athens should be added to that list. It's got the fantastic food and delectable desserts. It's got the incredible wine and the amazing views. And it has a charm, a prettiness, that's all it's own. It may not be a conventional choice but I think Athens needs to be on everyone's list for romantic getaways. Here are my picks for the loveliest, swoon-iest, most romantic spots in the city.
Welcome to the latest installment of the "Save, Splurge, Steal" interview series. Getting great value when I travel is always such a fun challenge for me and I love to learn how other people get the best possible experience for their available time and money.

There's a delicious, diverse food scene to discover in Amsterdam
Amsterdam has a fantastic, diverse, delicious food scene and there is something for every taste and price point. In just a few days we must have consumed our own body weight in goodies several times over. No shame, no problem! Here are four of our favourite places to eat, drink, and be merry. Don't consider it a comprehensive list or a 'best of' description - these are simply spots we loved and we think you'll love them too.
Here's what's making February a happy month for me.
Happy, healthy kitty
I'm happy to report that Darwyn's miraculous recovery from being a lick-a-holic fur remover continues. For those not following the story, after 50 weeks of wearing a cone due to her mysterious and insatiable licking, we woke up on New Year's Day to see a house covered in fur tufts (oh, the carnage!) and a cone free cat. Darwyn has stuck to her New Year's resolution (so much better than any of us) and remains utterly reformed. Miracles do happen.
