American Made with Tom Cruise
We decided to stay in and rent a movie last night. The movie we chose was American Made - Doug Liman with Tom Cruise. It is about the CIA's effort in the 70's-80's to battle communism in South America and the subsequent creation of major drug cartels and power players like Noriega throughout the region.
It was a really fun movie, the plot was always moving and the story just kept growing. The best part was that it was based on a true story and had some actual history wound into the plot line. ...

Our Airbnb in Verona, Italy
Join us on a tour of our apartment in Verona, Italy. Our Airbnb was right by the Castelvecchio Bridge and minutes from the center of Verona.

At the pet shop in Milan, Italy we saw this poster:

Train Travel With Your Dog in Europe
One thing we love about Europe: You can travel by train with your dog! We were ready to book our first train ride with James, our Standard Poodle. While train travel in Europe with a dog is easy, it isn't always easy to find how to get the tickets. We wanted to explain the best way to travel through Europe by train with your dog.
We first searched using the OBB Austria website (since we originally started our Europe journey in Austria) and we found that adding a dog to our searches showed ...
