What It’s Like To Run A Marathon In The Jungle: Tackling Costa Rica’s Moon Run

  If you’ve been following along with us since our days of teaching English in Taiwan, you might remember that a few years ago we ran our first marathon in Taipei! As two non-runners (when we started training I could barely finish three miles!) this was a massive accomplishment.     Since that first marathon, we’ve been eager to get back into running shape and successfully tackle another 26.2... read more

How To Plan The Ultimate Trip To Iceland

Photo via Iceland.is  Spoiler Alert: We’re going back to Europe this summer! It’s no secret that we love traveling through Europe, and while we’ve done a pretty good job of covering ground there over the years, there’s always so much left to explore. And while we’ve been to Europe quite a few times, there’s one unique travel hack we have yet to take advantage of: the opportunity to add-on a free 7-day layover... read more

White Water Rafting The Rio Pacuare, Costa Rica: An Epic Two-Day Adventure

It was 5:00 am on a Friday morning, and I was terrified. I was on my way to the Rios Tropicales operation center to begin a two-day white water rafting adventure down the Pacuare River—considered by National Geographic to be one of the best destinations for rafting in the world.     While normally this kind of travel experience would be right up my alley, this time around I... read more

Hiking the Royal Arch Trail In Boulder Colorado

  Living in Costa Rica, we’ve noticed that the country attracts a lot of native Coloradans—both tourists and expats. It seems the love of the outdoors and adventure activities aligns well with residents of both areas. So it’s hardly any surprise that Colorado immediately caught our attention as a place where we might want to spend extended time in the future. In particular, we love Boulder for its excellent restaurants and bars... read more

How To Get A Sak Yant Tattoo In Thailand: Everything You Need To Know

We’ve known for years that if we ever traveled to Thailand, we would get traditional Sak Yant tattoos. I’m not sure how we first heard about these traditional Thai tattoos, but we were immediately intrigued.

The Perfect Mix of Adventure and Class: Jord Wooden Watch Review

It’s safe to say we live a relatively adventurous and outdoor oriented lifestyle. Just in the past few months, we’ve been white-water rafting on class 4 rapids, ran a trail marathon through the rainforest, and enjoyed ocean views in an infinity pool while monkeys swing through the nearby trees. Being surrounded by the rich nature of Costa Rica has inspired us in so many ways to remember that time... read more

8 Awesome Tips To Find Cheap Flight Deals Today

One of the biggest obstacles that keeps most people from traveling more often is high flight prices. We totally understand. As much as we always want to hop on the next plane to anywhere, it’s not easy to justify hundreds—if not thousands—of dollars on tickets to faraway locations when we could better explore Costa Rica or Central America. Luckily though, we have found numerous ways to travel hack our way to... read more
