3 Days in Paris (with a toddler) — A Diva Travel Diary
We had a wonderful holiday in Paris. We did about a week in Paris overall, with 3 days in Paris (including a trip to the Palace of Versailles) and then the rest at Disneyland Paris (and traveling) because we have a major Mickey Mouse fan on our hands. This post is just about the first half in the city, which really was romantic.
Venice, Italy — Diva Travel
The Wintertons in Venice! I know some of you really like my travel posts...I almost didn't share Venice because it was a quick trip we did a few weeks ago, but then I thought, "WHY NOT?" I haven't done a travel post in awhile! Venice was one of the best, most beautiful places we've been to.

Since this is travel season, I thought I’d put together a travel series this summer with some of my tips for traveling with kids. Family travel is unique!
Tips for Traveling with Kids – The Journey (Part 1)
I know many of us are traveling right now, and one question I get asked a lot is “How do you travel with a 2 year old?!” I thought I’d put together a travel series this summer with some of my tips for traveling with kids. There is one affiliate link in this article — Devotional Diva’s affiliate policy is at the bottom of every page of Devotional Diva in hot pink font. Thank you for your support of Devotional Diva! My husband is in the US Navy and so we have traveled a lot to move, we have traveled a lot to visit family, and we have traveled…
Budapest, Hungary — Churches Around the World
Today we are back in Budapest, visiting St. Stephen’s Basilica AND the Dohany Street Synagogue. It’s not a typo, my recent Churches Around the World post in Vienna was also a St. Stephen’s! Here is a link for more info on St. Stephen’s Basilica. I was very blessed to get a clear day and got excellent pictures (if I’ll toot my own horn) of the outside of St. Stephen’s. I thought it was very impressive, and loved the courtyard! So did little O. Also in Budapest, we visited the Dohany Street Synagogue. Although not a church, this is still a place of worship and I thought would fit well into this…
Vienna, Austria — Churches Around the World
Traipsing around Europe has given my husband and I plenty of opportunity to see churches — and so far, this is my husband’s favorite one! St. Stephen’s Cathedral — Vienna, Austria We didn’t get the chance to go in, but honestly, the best pictures of most Cathedrals are taken outside. The architecture is just astounding. My husband also took a midnight stroll while I was at the hotel with O and checked it out at night, which was apparently very cool. He reported that the Cathedral looked like “a ghost church.” I really liked the gothic feel of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, too. It was very different from any church we’d seen…
Some Spring To-Do’s
This spring, I am in the US spending time with my family. (It’s just me and little O for this trip). We are here to be in another wedding and for my brother’s graduation at the end of May. Living in Italy is a great opportunity and at times a lot of fun, but there’s just nothing like being at home in the states. There’s things I can do here that I just can’t overseas. Like, obviously, throw a birthday party for O with all of our family. This brings me to my first spring to-do I wanted to share: 1.Plan the best Thomas the Tank Engine party I can!…
Budapest, Hungary — Diva Travel
Last week, I shared all about part one of my birthday trip: Vienna. Today, it’s all about Budapest, Hungary! We did what we do in all of our travels since we have a tiny tot and that is to walk around as much as we can. O sits in his stroller or holds our hands (he likes to walk, actually) and we can soak up the city. We’ve found that this is the best way for us to see many places in Europe. In Budapest, I was able to see many places of worship which is a real treat for me. I’m going to do a Churches around the world post…
Vienna, Austria — Diva Travel
I’m finally settled and ready to share about my my recent travels! If you follow the Devotional Diva IG, @Devotional_Diva, you’ll know I’m now visiting family back in the states (again). It’s been a lot of traveling! But before that, while I was still overseas with my husband, we took a long weekend to celebrate my birthday. We visited Vienna, Austria and Budapest, Hungary since they are actually only 2.5 hours apart from each other (if you’re driving, that is!). We did Vienna first, so this post is dedicated solely to Vienna. And to be honest, Vienna was my favorite. I thought I would like Budapest more, but it ended…
