Baltic Marvels Cruise — Part 1

Around this time last year, Bryan and I started the transition from living in Europe for two years to coming back to the United States. Packing up our first “married-life” apartment and beginning the journey to Atlanta was quite the emotional process. Thankfully, we had all the travel in between to enjoy. So, we packed…

Cheerio Cotswalds!

I wish I was faster in updating this space, but toward the end of our time in Amsterdam things got…well.. crazy! There are still several trips I need to write about for all my loyal followers. (Cough cough, thanks for reading mom!) Last summer, I was fortunate to be able to pack up our apartment…

France s’il vous plaît

I am still behind on my travels, but I am determined to keep this blog up. I love that I get to relive my dreamy trip with Kate, Brittany, and Caroline through this post. My cousin, Brittany, spearheaded the planning and organization for our magical trip to southern France last summer. I was thrilled she…

Wine and R&R in Bordeaux

It is tough to get back into the swing of writing for this blog. Between wrapping up our time in Amsterdam, and settling into our new day-to-day in Atlanta, Bryan and I are simply busy! But, I am committed to this space. My next bit to write about is our quick weekend trip to France…

Israel and Jordan: The Trip of a Lifetime

This blog post is the hardest to start. How do I begin to describe the impact this trip had on my life? But, here goes! Our group (Bill & Melissa; Jacqueline & Alex; Bryan and I!) arrived in Tel Aviv at the crack of dawn on Thursday morning, and caught a few zzzs  before starting…

B.A.D. gals weekend: Amalfi Coast!

In early May, we had our B.A.D. gals weekend; a bachelorette weekend celebrating our favorite gal, Brooke Annette Davidson, and her upcoming nuptials. One of my most fun friends in Amsterdam, Brooke, picked the Amalfi Coast to celebrate. We were thrilled! The winters are long and cold in Amsterdam and so we all needed a warm weather trip. Our…

Czeching out Prague!

Caroline and Kyle landed on a sunny and beautiful day in April. I promptly put them on bikes and we spent the afternoon riding around Amsterdam, and sitting outside at one of my favorite breweries in the city. Bryan joined us for drinks and dinner in our neighborhood that evening. We jetted to Prague on…

Birmingham, England (not Alabama!)

This post is long overdue. I will likely never catch up on this blog, but I love trying! You may notice while reading the content below, I stole a significant portion of my content for this post from my friend Natasha’s blog: http://www.thosedamscotts.com. Why? 1) She is better at blogging and faster than I am…

Dahl Family Trip to Londontown

Convincing my Dad to visit Amsterdam was a triumph! As you may know, Kent Dahl does not love traveling overseas, so I couldn’t  have been more thrilled to host him in our city. My dad loves soccer, or football as it is referred to on this “side of the pond.” So, we decided to go to…

Profound Poland

I will not be able to adequately share how much our trip to Poland impacted me. I went into the weekend knowing it would be intense on many levels — of course, touring Auschwitz,  but the entire experience of visiting Kraków blew me away. Kraków is not only the second largest city in Poland, but…
