Hello from Salzburg, Austria - more pictures from the beginning of my trip!

I am having an amazing time traveling around Europe. We have been to Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. So far Germany has been my favorite because the houses are simply charming and the gardens are so beautiful. I will post pictures in due time, but first here are more of the beautiful Galicia, in Spain, where we spent our first week.








More from the amazing Cies Islands - famous for the gorgeous beaches and as a nature preserve.





Approaching one of the beaches via ferry.


This was my favorite view from a cliff on the back of the island.
















Pontevedra was my favorite city in Spain this trip.


While driving back to our hotel we stumbled across this beautiful little vineyard with horses, sheep, and goats grazing.

Pictures from my European backpacking trip!

I know these are a long time coming, but getting photos in order while traveling has been tough. I am in Munich right now and finally have a moment. All of these photos are from Spain, in the beautiful region of Galicia. Absolutely gorgeous!

The Cies Islands - unbelievable! I will post a lot more picture of this area later.





This is an island near Baiona - a beautiful coastal town.



More to come soon - miss you guys!

sponsored post -Carpet so gorgeous you might not miss hardwood

Hardwood gets a lot of attention - and while I will not deny that I love a rustic wideplank floor, there are some rooms where carpet is a bit more appropriate and welcoming.

However, I think it is important that the carpet is something you love the look of, and when I was introduced to Fun on the Floor I actually raised an eyebrow. My first reaction was to the wonderful colors. Take a look at some of my favs







I also really appreciated that they offer so much more than frou frou patterns, but modern and timeless choices that will keep you home from looking dated.


Are there rooms in your home where you feel carpet is a must? I think if you have small children a carpet in the play room is perfect because it creates a softer surface for playing on the floor. I also tend to like carpets in the TV room because sometimes I just like to sprawl out on the floor with a big pillow. If you are going for a comfy but luxury look in a bedroom I think carpet can be really welcoming.



So...now that I have your attention with all the glorious eye candy above; I have another sweet treat for you. Fun on the Floor is offering a carpet voucher open to anyone visiting the page: www.funonthefloor.com/voucher
