Coron Island
When we decided to go to the Philippines we knew we would only be able to pick one place to go due to time constraints. We would be coming from Hong Kong and it seemed no matter where we wanted to go we'd have to fly through Manila to get there. After chatting with some friends that had been to...

Working from Barcelona

Plaza d'Espanya
In November 2015 I was lucky enough to travel to Barcelona to attend the IBTM conference. While I had to work some of the days I was there, I made sure to save some time for sightseeing (and eating lots of paella). These are my recommendations. Stay Catalonia Barcelona Plaza Hotel - due to the fact that I was attending a...
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...
After almost nine years of living in California, I finally made some time to visit Big Sur. Living down in San Diego meant that I couldn't make it an easy day, or even weekend trip, so with a week off between Christmas and New Years I made a mini-road trip itinerary. Day 1 - Paso Robles Being that I'm a wine...

A Weekend in Queenstown

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. Queenstown is a gorgeous little town surrounded by mountains with beautiful views of Lake Wakatipu. It's situated relatively south on the South Island and is pretty easy to get to via plane from most other...
View from Table Mountain
For the first couple of days and second week of our South Africa trip we used Cape Town as our home base. Although people talk about the city being dangerous and private security is everywhere, I had a great time and never felt unsafe. Where To Stay Urban Chic Boutique Hotel - we opted to stay on Long Street our first...

Hiking Trolltunga

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...
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...
Gergeti Trinity Church
Recently, we spent 10 days exploring The Republic of Georgia. Check out our itinerary for some inspiration! Day 1 - Arrival in Tbilisi We arrived in Tbilisi from Amsterdam at around 5:15 pm. Getting through customs was quick and painless - if you're coming from the United States you do not need a Visa. Once we were outside in the warm...

Tranquil Trinidad

Trinidad
The other stop on our Cuba tour was the small town of Trinidad, about 4 hours southeast of Havana. Once there (after a longer than 4 hour, hot and sweaty, taxi collectivo ride) we immediately fell in love with the place and the people. Where to Stay I believe there are a handful of hotels in Trinidad, and definitely a few...
