About Katie

I’ve always been a simple girl loving the thrill of adventure. I love my family something fierce and I’m overjoyed that we get to see these places for the first time together. In my free time, I love to lose myself in a book or a sappy period drama on Netflix.

Venice, Italy

By | 2018-04-12T18:03:09+00:00 December 10th, 2015|Italy|

Venice. The most unique and romantic city I think I'll ever visit. We stayed in Venice for one week, which I think was the perfect amount of time for our family. Maybe if we were here without the kids, we [...]

Milan, Italy

By | 2018-04-12T18:03:09+00:00 December 6th, 2015|Italy|

Italy is in my blood. Literally. My great grandmother, Carmelina Mazza Potter, was 100% beautiful and feisty Italian. She was born in the small village of Gurro, which is near the border of Switzerland, with the Alps being her backyard. [...]

Eguisheim, France

By | 2018-04-12T18:03:09+00:00 November 28th, 2015|France|

Eguisheim (pronounced Egg-iss-hime) was never part of our plan when we set out to travel the world. In fact, we've never even heard of it until we met a world traveler from Australia who told us about it. Watching the way [...]

Paris, France

Disneyland Paris We spent the first 2 days in France at Disneyland Paris to celebrate my son's birthday. It is located about an hour outside of Paris. How does Disneyland Paris compare to Disneyland California? 1) It is a little [...]

Things to See Outside of London

By | 2018-04-12T18:03:09+00:00 November 4th, 2015|England|

Taking the Family to London

By | 2018-04-12T18:03:09+00:00 November 2nd, 2015|England|

Arriving in London We've been in England for almost two weeks now. We've been staying in London and I knew it would be big and busy, but I never expected it to be bigger and busier than New York City. [...]

Taking the Family to Waterford Crystal

By | 2018-04-12T18:03:10+00:00 October 27th, 2015|Ireland|

I had absolutely no idea what to expect from Waterford Crystal. In fact, I had never even heard of it until my mother-in-law (Hi Aletha!) told me about it a couple weeks before we left to Ireland. When we arrived [...]

Lismore, Ireland

By | 2018-04-12T18:03:10+00:00 October 25th, 2015|Ireland|

We only spent a day here, but it deserves its own post! We've spent almost a month in Ireland and I've been in awe at how beautiful everything is. And then I go to Lismore and I'm pinching myself to [...]
