Wonderful Winter Weekend In The Cotswolds

Last weekend we celebrated the husband’s birthday with a quick getaway to the English countryside. The last few years, it sort of become a tradition to celebrate his birthday on a weekend trip (like Wroclaw in Poland last year). And let’s be honest: it’s a perfect excuse to get out of town. Cotswolds Road Trip This year we decided on the glowing hills…

Solo Surf Adventure On Fuerteventura

The last time I went on a solo adventure was in 2010, when I attended Harvard Summer School. Let’s just say, I didn’t return solo: I met the man of my dreams and ended up marrying him six years later. And let me start by saying that no, it doesn’t mean you have marital problems or you’ve reached the seven year…

Wonderful Winter Weekend in Hunsrück-Hochwald

One of my main New Year’s resolutions is of course to explore and photograph more beautiful places around our planet, but I also want to make a commitment to go on more adventures closer to home. In Europe, and in our own country. There are so many enchanting places on this earth, that are not necessarily halfway across the globe. A…

Ranch Life In Wells Gray Provincial Park

When I was doing my research for our West Canada road trip it amazed me that most visitors to this part of the country only include a quick trip to either Calgary and Banff National park, or Vancouver and Vancouver Island. Don’t get me wrong, those places are absolutely beautiful and highly recommended. But I can’t imagine having missed either Jasper National…

2016: The Blue, The Light, And The Foggy

I usually don’t do a recap at the end of a year, but I figured it would be good for me to reflect on 2016. As I posted on Instagram today, the photo above perfectly represents my feelings of this past year. The blue vibes, the soft fog, the dark shadows, but also that light trying to shine through, the ups and…

Nashville: The Country Music Capital Of The World

Confession: we love country music. Really love it. Like for real. It’s our biggest guilty pleasure and I’m not even ashamed of it. Ever since we met during our time at Harvard in 2010 we have been keeping up with the country charts, listening secretly to our country playlist on Spotify. So I guess you can understand the excitement when in 2012…

Telegraph Cove: The Loveliest Town In Canada

A while back I showed you all about our amazing grizzly bears experience in the Canadian wilderness (read more here). We drove all the way up North to Telegraph Cove on Vancouver Island, which is an absolutely amazing road trip through gorgeous woodlands and beautiful scenery. We ended up at the tiny seaside town called Telegraph Cove from where we would go on our grizzly…

Fifty Shades Of Fall Fest On The East Coast

Fall is here, hallelujah! And even though I was born in spring, fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. When we planned our 2015 coast to coast USA honeymoon road trip (yep, that’s right) it was a no brainer that we would start on the East Coast to finally experience fall like it’s supposed to be: during Indian…

The Grizzly Bears Of Canada’s Knight Inlet

I don’t know about you guys but seeing grizzly bears in the wild has always been very high on my animal encounters bucket list (next to swimming with penguins and hanging out with pandas). So when we booked our tickets to Canada we pretty much instantly decided on a grizzly bears experience to Knight Inlet with Tide Rip Tours. They have…

Travel Video Of Our West Canada Road Trip

Last Sunday we got back from our amazing road trip through West Canada. If you follow me on Instagram (@littlelarey) you’ve probably already seen some teasers of how GORGEOUS this country is. I can’t get over its beauty. And it’s so good for the soul to spend a few weeks roaming around in the woods and the mountains. Especially when the…

3 Days In Vancouver Island’s Capital Victoria

The first place most visitors to Vancouver Island go is capital Victoria. Yes, named after that beautiful (was she?) British queen that has given her name to so many places around the world. Even though the city is still known for being a bit boring and mostly appealing to retirees, Victoria has been shaking off that image in recent years. And…

Snapshots From A Weekend in Wonderful Waterland

Last weekend the weather was so darn* good here in Holland, it pretty much felt like summer. Nowhere in all of Europe it was hotter than in our lovely little country. Ha! Crazy right?! Anyway, even though I love me some “hot town, summer in the city” we decided it was time to get out and explore Amsterdam’s backyard: the wonderful Waterland. Especially…

Spring Is Here! Hallelujah!

Even though we didn’t really have a harsh winter this year in Holland, it felt like the only weather we’ve seen since October was a not so fun combo of gray & wet. So when the leaves started to turn green, the flowers started to bloom and the sun finally showed up (and stayed!) the only right thing to do was to scream…

Why The Isle Of Skye Should Be Your Next Destination

As a gift for our wedding (see more about that here) one of our friends gave us a gift certificate for Canopy and Stars, a UK based company with hundreds of lovely and unusual rental cottages from British house owners. We spent hours and hours looking through their database and finally decided on a gorgeous – and I mean really freaking gorgeous –…
