Chasin' Waterfalls You're in for a special treat today, kids, because this post was written by both Erin AND Katie.  They both loved this particular Costa Rican adventure SO much, that they couldn't agree who would get to write the post.  So they opted for the third-person introduction, while the blue font that follows was written by Erin and the green font was written by Katie.  Look out, TLC!  We're chasing some waterfalls, whether you like it or not. Now that we … Read More

This 4th of July, try Red, White, and Blue Chocolate Dipped Strawberries (via Life Tastes Like Food)

This looks delicious!! These strawberries get my vote (even though I’m Canadian)!

Red, White, and Blue Chocolate Dipped Strawberries The 4th of July is almost always comprised of social gatherings including BBQs and potlucks! When I was younger, I use to live in a cul de sac where the neighborhood was really child-friendly. Every 4th of July, we would block off the entire neighborhood and hold a huge potluck BBQ that would end in lighting off an obscene amount of fireworks into the darkness. Did anyone else ever use sparklers to write their names in the sidewalk as a kid? It's … Read More

Slovenia really knows good, aged grapes!

Leave a comment


Slovenia is an amazing nation and the people there really feel the LOVE for the country’s wine (and there’s LOTS of it)!! It’s little wonder that it shares a border with Italy… and though I may not be the world’s expert on wine, I do love the stuff and I think that I “personally” prefer Slovene wine to Italian wine!

You’ll have to go visit the country to see if you agree!!

One Fine Lady: The World’s Oldest Grape Vine in Slovenia!!

Leave a comment


At possibly 450 plus years old, she has seen more changes than the relatively young former Yugoslav country. Tended regularly by Tone Zafosnik for more than 30 years, the vine flourishes today and is a major tourist attraction in this town of 110,000. The vine produces about 60 kilos of grapes per year which is a enough for a few hundred 250 dcl. of souvenir bottles of the red wine (but it is only given to dignitaries like the Pope).

I was met by the Director of Tourism for the town and we shared a few minutes of the vine’s incredible history for CNN.

Slovenia is a tiny European Union country situated just below Austria about half the size of Switzerland with a population of about 2 million. Wine growing is a major industry there.
