With only a few hours before our flight back to California, M and I were whisked away to Lulu’s Bakery to share a three-pound cinnamon roll by my aunt and uncle. We arrived only to discover that the wait was more than an hour; it wouldn’t work. We quickly whipped out our phones, scrolling through alternative options nearby when I stumbled upon Ocho.  It was...

The Hoover Dam | A Day Trip from Las Vegas, Nevada Travel

For the first time in my life, I stood in two states. Straddling the Arizona/Nevada border, I looked out at an incredible human construction, the Hoover Dam. I was driving back from Las Vegas after a performance, and decided to make a quick side trip. The Hoover Dam was only an hour out of the way and figured – why not?  I got out of...

Homemade Baked Tater Tots Recipe Culture & Cuisine

So, this is going to be the first recipe in quite some time that doesn’t belong to a country who’s language I am studying. But… tater tots… Need I say more? For those of you unfamiliar with this American treat, tater tots are a croquette of sorts, but much smaller and without ingredients in addition to potato. They’re typically fried, but I opted to bake...

Monterey Bay | Eurolinguiste Travel

A few years back M and I had the opportunity to go up to Monterey, California to spend my birthday weekend near the ocean. To throw a little history at you, Monterey Bay was originally known as Bahía de los Pinos, but in 1595 it was renamed to Bahía de San Pedro. In 1602 the name was once more changed to Puerto de Monterey. Monterey...

Solvang | A Danish Village in California Travel

On our trip back from Monterey we kept noticing signs for Solvang, and decided to stop out of curiosity. It was definitely worth the detour! Solvang, which is Danish for “sunny fields,” is a small town in Santa Barbara County, California. It’s tucked away in the Santa Ynez Valley and it is only 2.4 square miles. The town features Danish style architecture, several wine tasting...
