Do you ever ponder our purpose?

What Mysteries Does Your Life Hold?

Do you ever ponder the timeless question...why do we exist? What are we doing on this planet? This website is dedicated to the philosophical ramblings that we have on occasion when we take a break from the rigorous, sometimes monotonous, fast moving, non-stop pace of life that keeps us plugging away and moving forward. We occupy ourselves with our daily tasks, pick a religion to believe in, and settle down in contentment, ignoring the questions that can't be answered. Unfortunately, for some of us, that's not enough. We want to know what the heck we're doing here, where we came from, and what the future holds for us. In other words, if there's any reason at all, and we like to believe there is - why do we exist? read more »

Visiting Saint Sixtus of Westvleteren: The Best Beer in the World

Westvleteren Beer CratesDuring college I studied abroad for a semester in Paris, France. During this time. I made the most of living in Europe by visiting many countries but my favorite among them was Belgium. The unique architecture, the cute cafés and squares, the rich history, the beautiful canals and the food were all so inviting. So inviting in fact that 10 years later my husband and I returned. But this time I arrived with a true itinerary in mind that orbited around Belgian beer. The world's best beer: Westvleteren... read more »

Eat, Drink, Love: My Tour of Mallorca Restaurants

Tapas in MallorcaDelicious tapas, cold sangria and cervezas, laid back lifestyle, all in the magical and beautiful backdrop of the coast? What's not to love about Mallorca. Mallorca, a Balearic island off the coast of Spain, it is a hidden gem if you ask me. Just a short flight from London (or direct flights to dozens of other European destinations) it is full of history, charm and a perfect mix of both sightseeing and relaxation. There are cathedrals, museums and of course shopping. And all extremely affordable. My first time to Mallorca, and hopefully not my last. I wanted to recap some of the places we stumbled upon as tourists in hopes that it would be useful for others should they get so lucky to experience this place (aka heaven on earth). read more »

A Taste of London

Keep Calm and Drink GinWhen you travel, one of the best ways to get to know the culture is to eat the local food. So when we travel, we do a lot of it - eat that is. My parents (who we recently traveled to London with) tend to do a bit of homework in advance via guides and recommendations from friends as well as Frommer's. Our bellies greatly appreciated this extra planning effort. So here's a recap of our caloric intake in London, England, during the summer of 2013... read more »

Meaning of Valentine’s Day

What is love?

The Meaning of Valentine's Day“Love is never having to say you are sorry” (Snoopy). “Love is like a friendship caught on fire” (Bruce Lee). “At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet” (Plato).

Love is the theme of Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is all about this mystical, amazing, intoxicating thing we call love. It is the designated time to show the object of our loves just how much we love them. We do this by buying sweet things, red things, pretty things, and sexy things. We do this by going out, staying in, making something special and saying “I love you.” Do we really need a specific day dedicated to love? Apparently we do. And that day is February 14 – every year – Valentine’s Day... read more »
