Tarangire National Park
After climbing Kilimanjaro, we wasted no time starting our Tanzanian safari. We had four days before flying out of Kilimanjaro International Airport and we packed them full. Check out our safari adventures!
Mount Kilimanjaro
With one of Mount Kilimanjaro's dry seasons falling over our birthdays, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro became our 2018 birthday trip. We chose the Rongai route as it was said to be a less popular route and we were hoping to avoid the crowds (as much as possible during one of the busier times of year)...spoiler alert: it was a great...
I'd been wanting to go to Norway for years. And when that finally became a reality, I knew we had to get at least one of their famous hikes on our itinerary.Upon doing some research, Trolltunga appeared to be the closest hike to Bergen. I was excited. Then, I started doing some reading and learned that it wasn't recommended...
We only had a short time in Norway, between weekends in Copenhagen and Stockholm, so we opted to skip Oslo and head straight for fjord country. We took a quick flight from Copenhagen to Bergen, picked up our rental car and were at our hotel in no time. Stay We used our Chase Sapphire points and stayed at the Augustin Hotel....
Queenstown
Before we went to New Zealand, anyone who had been told us how much they loved Queenstown. After visiting, we feel exactly the same.

It's situated relatively south on the South Island and is pretty easy to get to via plane from most other...
Tongariro Crossing
When we first started planning our trip to New Zealand we planned on spending the entire trip in the South Island, aside from flying in and out of Auckland. Then we learned about the Tongariro Crossing. After reading about the hike we decided to switch our plans up a bit and spend a few days in the North Island...
New Zealand
Many times when we've talked to people about going to New Zealand, they say they'd need 3-4 weeks to explore the country. Yes, that would be nice. Yes, there are many spots we'd like to go back and get to visit that we didn't get to on this trip - but, isn't that true of most countries you've been...
While it is small in size, the dining options are surprisingly varied and wonderful. Check out our suggestions...
For this year's annual birthday trip we decided to take a more relaxing route and chose to spend five perfect days in Belize. We absolutely fell in love with Ambergris Caye and have already been recommending it to everyone.As a disclaimer, we did go in early September, right before the slowest of the slow season, so we may not...
Valparaiso
Due to the fact that we were trying to fit so much into such a short period of time, we only had one day to go to Valparaiso. That day happened to be a Sunday, when many restaurants and shops were closed, but we still had a great time.We took a 90-minute bus ride from Santiago - check out companies...
