Valencia-ga.

I'm pitching a slogan to Valencia that I can hopefully cash in on some royalties later: Valencia, the Hipster Capital of the World. It's been fairly unanimous lately that I'm a Hipster even though I don't think I am one, but if Valencia is for Hipsters than I'm a Hipster because I'm in love. We...

Marseille | 3 day.

Marseille was another interesting experience. It was different than I had anticipated - larger, less "beachy" and very spread out. Marseille is France's oldest city and it was really different than Paris. It was a combination of seafood, sailboats and local charm. Our first day was chill - we saw the old port which was...

N I C E

I had a whole post written out for Nice, and after recent events, my superficial view of Nice doesn't seem that important. We left Nice the day before the terrorist attacks - which is actually something that did cross our minds the first night we were there when the Euro Cup Soccer final was on...

days in Lisboa

Coimbra Gym Fest

World's cutest and best smelling chocolate store. They had a million options - including Port Infused Chocolate Bars and Port Macarons. An absolute must visit in Lisbon (Chiado Area)!

Scalabis Cup 2016

We have done the Scalabis Cup once again! Again, it was a lot of fun! Trish, Loic and Alex left before I did, so I ended up getting into Lisbon and then taking the train to Santarem alone, all in one day. It was nice to get to stay at home a little while longer,...
