A Wool Coat in the Winter ft. Sightglass Coffee

Returning home for Thanksgiving after three months away, I felt the obligation to explore parts of San Francisco I may have forgotten about as well as return to some old favorites. This post chronicles exactly that. Our first stop was the latter, an old favorite. Sightglass Coffee, located on 7th St in SoMa, serves our favorite Neighborhood Bakehouse pastries and an amazing cup of coffee (or espresso con panna which is what I opted for). My mom and dad both ordered cappuccinos, which were also delicious. Please also note the hats ...

The New York Coffee Festival 2016

I walked into the 69th Regiment Armory/heaven to a La Marzocco sign in lights. My nose was immediately entranced by the aroma of coffee everywhere. Because that’s what it was. Coffee (and some tea) EVERYWHERE. Yesterday, I had the splendid opportunity of attending The New York Coffee Festival. I could not have been more content being in the company of two of my favorite friends (Maddy and Olivia—featured above) and the most espresso machines I’ve ever seen in one place. Initial Reactions: Oh my god it smells like people are smoking ...

Café Kafíčko  Prague, Czech Republic

Located a minute-walk from our hotel in Prague, Café Kafíčko resides in a corner space that works perfectly. From the outside, you are granted a slight view of the coffee shop through white barred windows with decorative planters. When you walk in, you are most likely greeted by an elder man, the owner of the shop. He speaks predominantly Czech, but we were able to communicate perfectly after he understood that I did not speak and handed me an English translation of a menu to replace the Czech one I received ...

Charles Bridge  Prague, Czech Republic

  The Charles Bridge connects you to Old Town and is one of the main tourist attractions of Prague. No cars are allowed on this bridge as its cobblestones are reserved for the shoes of locals and tourists alike. In the middle of the bridge, you have a 360 degree view of what is around you. There are bridges both above you and below you and city on either side of you. It's a must see if you are ever in Prague, but with that I have a few suggestions. Avoid going between ...

Kofárna Cafe  Prague, Czech Republic

Tucked away on the quiet street of Zborovská in Prague, Kofárna Café stole my heart. I came across the quaint café on Trip Advisor (a must-use for anyone traveling abroad). I was greeted first by a soft pink exterior and then by a local barista who assumed I spoke Czech (I was flattered, but I know about four words). I ordered an espresso (from Brazil) and found an open table amidst the minimalistic ambiance. The espresso was unbelievable. The wifi worked. I felt very much in my element. I was able to ...

Italy by the Seaside ⎜ Savona, Italia

I have been in Europe the past week or so--traveling through Italy. These photos are from our trip to the seaside in Savona, Italy. We arrived on an overcast Sunday afternoon to a private beach that you can see above. Each lounge chair was accompanied by a matching umbrella to shield us from the sun that finally shone later in the day. It was a picture-perfect scene every time I closed my book for a second to turn around. Vacationing Italians sauntered around the rocky beach: men in speedos or short swim ...
