Wanderlust Wednesday: Scotland

My friend, Marcy, has raved about the beauty and history of Scotland. In fact, she took her niece to Scotland a couple of years ago and returned with her nephew just this past summer. She fell in love with this country when she was in college, which may be one reason why her love of Scotland runs deep.

Wanderlust Wednesday: Take Me to Capri

Capri, Italy. This small island draws me in like a moth to a flame. Capri has always been one of the most cosmopolitan islands in the Mediterranean, and is beloved by celebrities and international jet-setters. Capri, an island in Italy‚Äôs Bay of Naples, is famed for its rugged landscape, upscale hotels and shopping, from designer fashions to limoncello and handmade leather sandals. One of its best-known natural sites is the Blue Grotto, a dark cavern where the sea glows electric blue, the result of sunlight passing through an underwater cave. In summer, Capri’s dramatic, cove-studded coastline draws many yachts. Depending […]
