When the cold wind starts to bring the chill to the Chicago area, we start to look for hot chocolate. At some point during the summer, I learned about The Heart of Europe Cafe in Barrington. I am frequently in Barrington during the fall and winter for various events, so I eagerly seized on the opportunity to check the cafe out.

This past visit was our third visit to Reykjavik and I can say we never get tired of walking around the city. The flavor is so different from home, how could we not be in love? With a population much smaller than our native Chicago, walking around without the hustle bustle is pleasant and quite soothing. The relaxed atmosphere truly allows explorers to enjoy the architecture, squares and artwork throughout the city.

This weekend certainly was as picture perfect as they can be in late October -- great temperatures and plenty of sun! Late Saturday afternoon we capitalized on the weather and visited Crabtree Nature Center for the Art in Nature Nocturne Event.

In Arlington Heights, we are lucky to have a pretty elaborate and cool Halloween display on the 600 block of North Drury Lane. If you visit, you will truly appreciate the ability to walk through the display and admire all of the spooky surprises! Light and motion really enhance the experience.

While in Iceland, we experienced Grayline's Game of Thrones tour and explored some of the truly magical places that provide epic settings for the popular show. Striking landscapes are a crucial element of the show, so Iceland easily provides some fantastic shooting locations. However if you are not a fan of the show, you will still appreciate the stunning natural settings.
