My Top 5 Bites in Charleston, South Carolina (described in 3 words)!

My husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary this year by road tripping around Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina. With only one night in Savannah, we didn’t have too many opportunities to eat, but our favorite was dinner at the historic Olde Pink House. Along backroads we found local breweries, beach shacks serving Lowcountry cuisine, and much more. This list is dedicated to all the rich, sumptuous Southern food we savored in the lovely city of Charleston — and trust me, it was difficult narrowing it down to only five dishes!

We explored Amsterdam, Bruges, Normandy and the Palace of Versailles … eating and drinking along the way. Here’s a recap of the best bites during the journey — both on and off the ship.

My Top 5 Bites in London (described in 3 words)!

Late October in London was magical … the fall foliage in Hyde Park. The royal legacy of Kensington Palace. Oh, and the food was as authentic as it comes. We hit up historical pubs and enjoyed afternoon tea in a palace. Does it get better than that? Cheers to our favorite English dishes!
