New Glarus, WI – America’s Little Switzerland
I am on a mission to visit as many European inspired or European style towns America has to offer. New Glarus, WI was on of them.
This unique town is about 3 hours from Chicago and while it may seem like a long drive, it goes by quickly. My husband and I enjoy driving so for us the drive was peaceful and a great experience overall.
But if you feel extra adventurous, you can be in Madison, WI in an additional 30 minutes! Make it a fun weekend trip.Read more
The world of coffee – Western Suburbs of Chicago
This comes as no surprise and especially on National Coffee Day – but I love coffee! It has to be the European in me that can’t resist the aroma or the taste. I will drive out of my way just to try a new cafe and consider it a bonus if it involves pastries 😉
Check out some of my favorites from this year.
