Cottage of Sweets No trip down Ocean Ave in Carmel is complete without a stop at the Cottage of Sweets. I recommend the fudge if you like chocolate. They also pride themselves on their licorace.Their collection include licorices from Australia, Finland, Germany, Holland, England, Italy and the USA. It includes soft, hard, chewy, sweet, bitter, salty and numerous different mixes. AND it smells sooo good in there.
Polignano A Mare, ItalyIn a country full of postcard-perfect views, castles, and quaint villages, it’s impossible to pick just one place as the most romantic. However, the seaside restaurant at the Grotta Palazzese Hotel is a strong contender. We suggest a nighttime proposal, with soft mood lighting and the sound of waves crashing. (It’s only open from May to October, so start planning now for 2015.)
