Where to Eat

Hartwood – You’ll dine under the stars beneath swaying palm trees at this picturesque spot. The restaurant uses wood burning ovens and open grills to prepare fresh, local food (from grilled fish to pork belly). Meanwhile, the beach huts, whitewashed roofs, wooden tables, and candles all add to the romantic atmosphere.

Where to Drink

Gitano – The jungle merges with a club atmosphere at Gitano, one of Tulum’s hottest restaurants. Overall, it’s a terrific choice for capping off the night with mixed drinks and light snacks. Couples have a long list of terrific cocktails to choose from, however our favorite is the Stardust, made with mezcal, dark rum, pineapple, papaya and a homemade coconut cream.

Hiking

Napa and Sonoma Counties offer more than just vineyards. Actually, they are both packed with wilderness as the unique topography gives way to foggy forests, petrified trees and crazy rock formations. Bothe-Napa Valley State Park and Sugarloaf State Park are both great places for exploring the backwoods.

Biking

The biking options in wine country are plentiful and highly recommended. Check out Napa Valley Bike Tours for rental information and suggested routes. No matter if you’re a biking enthusiast or just a casual biker, there’s an itinerary available for you. Blaze past vineyards on backcountry roads or take the main drag through some of the beautiful small towns dotted throughout Napa Valley.

Fall colors of Rouen offset the gothic spectacle that is the city’s main Cathedral

Ah, Normandy. We’re completely obsessed with your whimsical small towns, cobblestone streets, and strong apple liquor.  And there is no better way to see these towns than by bike. We traveled to Rouen and Les Andelys, and we were able to see more of each town than we would have by foot. We’ve decided there might not be anything more luxurious than Europe in the Fall: the colors, the crisp air…getting lost down side streets…and hidden-treasure alleyways with the one you love.

On Monday we were in Rouen: a lovely town that has the second largest population in France, next to Paris.  Even though there are tons of people, be warned: most of the town is closed on Monday until the afternoon (after 3pm).  This was both a good and bad thing. The Good: we got the town to ourselves, so we didn’t have to watch out for pedestrians as we cruised down cobblestone streets and took literally 1,000 photos. The Bad: we were hard-pressed to find an open fromagerie (we were successful, however, in finding a patisserie, so at least we were set with many croissants). There is a ton of history in this town (like the Cathedral and a memorial to Joan of Arc) so we did do our fair share of Instagram- worthy sight-seeing.
