Better Than Sex

I ran across an interesting dessert-and-drinks restaurant in Orlando a couple of weeks ago while roaming the internet. It’s called Better Than Sex Dessert Restaurant! We made reservations for that Friday night. That Friday afternoon, I received a text asking me to confirm… Please confirm your reservation for Better Than Sex Orlando tonight by texting […]

to Avoid I-95
and Take A1A

Google maps and Waze will both default to I-95 if you’re traveling north from Daytona, or south from Jacksonville. We’re going to tell you one of the best reasons to avoid I-95 and take A1A instead.

Nic & Luc’s Scratch Kitchen – Longwood, FL

Sometimes you stumble on a great place right in your own backyard and then wonder how you’ve missed it all this time. Nic & Luc’s Scratch Kitchen was like that for us. We were hungry for brunch on a rainy Saturday morning. Instead of hitting our usual spot we decided to try a place that […]

Collage Restaurant
St. Augustine, Florida

Back in November we made dinner reservations at Collage Restaurant for our New Year’s trip to St. Augustine. In mid-December, Collage had once again appeared on the Trip Advisor Top 100 List. Any remaining reservations for the holiday season instantly evaporated. The moral of this story is simple: if your romantic getaway includes dinner at […]

Holiday Lights Date Night Lake Mary, Florida

We had the best date night at the Central Park Holiday Lights in Lake Mary, Florida! Central Park is next to some very nice little restaurants. We’re in love with the menu and food at Lonnie’s Fusion Cuisine so we stopped in there first for dinner. Lonnie’s is a fairly small place, with only five […]

Winter Park Farmers’ Market – Winter Park, FL

One of our favorite places to spend a romantic Saturday morning is the Winter Park Farmers’ Market. It’s a positively wonderful way to start the weekend. Last Saturday morning, we packed up our market basket and a couple of hats and headed out. However, we do aim for getting there before 10 o’clock as it […]

Hotel Novecento, Venice, Italy

I was drawn to the Hotel Novecento by the photos of its beautiful rooms when I searched online for lodging in Venice, Italy. While we stayed there, I was impressed by their attentive but unobtrusive service. The Italian Air Traffic Controllers called a strike the day that we were to arrive in Venice. Once our […]

Hotel della Signoria Florence, Italy

After spending four nights in a smaller boutique hotel in Venice, the Hotel della Signoria (HDS) in Florence was a big shift. For one, HDS has an elevator, a convenience that our knees greatly appreciated. Though it’s a small elevator, and the sign says that it can accommodate six people, we joked just how they […]
