Where to Eat in Sydney, Australia

During a recent trip to Australia, I narrowed down where to eat in Sydney. I’ve done all the research and the taste-testing for World Oyster readers so that you won’t be disappointed. (Hey, someone had to do it!) All you need to do is read, book, and go. Foodies will find two exceptional, upscale restaurants, […]

Where to Eat in Amsterdam

When I visited the Netherlands earlier this year, I wanted to carefully plan where to eat in Amsterdam. Sometimes I chose by location. Other times, I wanted to satisfy my inner foodie. Not familiar with Dutch cuisine, I had no idea what to expect. On my visit I discovered that while Dutch cuisine, even at […]

Three Days in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Our three days in Amsterdam, the Netherlands became a whirlwind tour, mostly because, in truth, we had only two-and-a-half days. Plus, we cheated a bit by taking a tour outside of the city.

Of course, if you have three days, you’ll be able to see a bit more. And if you really want to see Philadelphia […]

Dining in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia

Two and a half days in Alexandria, Virginia? For me, that’s about perfect, especially when it comes to dining in Old Town. Since the DC metro stops right at the end of King St., you can easily combine visits to both Alexandria and Washington. Below I’ve reviewed some of my favorite restaurants in Alexandria, VA. […]

Wellington New Zealand

My husband and I traveled to Wellington New Zealand for spring break, which was, of course, the country’s early fall. We arrived exhausted but ready to explore. Most Memorable: Eating oysters and drinking champagne on the waterfront Best Food: Logan Brown Most Surprising: The intimate feel of the capitol city Most Disappointing: I wanted to […]
