Our first night here was spent in an Airbnb, and the first thing our host did was pour us a glass of water. It was summer, and it was hot, so we eagerly gulped it down, and both simultaneously gagged. It was salty, and tasted like it came out of a garden hose. That was … More Mallorca Monday: Can you drink the water?
As you all know, our new home is on an island right in the middle of the Mediterranean sea. Now, I don’t know about you, but I kinda figured that the Mediterranean was an oceanic ghost town. I figured this because it’s been a food bank for countless civilizations going way back to the beginning … More Mallorca Monday: What’s under the sea?

The Sant Antoni (Saint Anthony) festival is fairly unique to our area. Palma (the capital) has some different stuff (also related to Saint Sebastian) but it doesn’t … More Mallorca Monday: Sant Antoni

While both of these cities were beautiful, interesting, and historically significant, only one of them (spoiler, it’s Hungary) had amazing food. Seriously though, Vienna was the most disappointing place for food, we didn’t have a single meal (except maybe the Christmas market and … More The best food we’ve ever had.
