Kalymnos Travel Guide: What To Do On Our Favorite Greek Island

  Greece is one of those magical destinations where we feel like you can’t really go wrong no matter which island you choose. Santorini is as romantic as can be, with its iconic whitewashed buildings and dramatic caldera. Rhodes has a rich history, beautiful beaches and one of the best-preserved fortresses in the world. Then, of course, there’s the mainland and Athens—a city a bit rough around the edges...

The Chrysalis Cardi: My Ultimate Travel Essential (And How To Use It)

  I’ve always been a notoriously horrible packer. I wait until the very last minute to decide what I should throw in a suitcase. I pack ridiculous items that I never use at home, but for some reason feel like I must bring along just in case of an emergency. (You know, the shoes/lotion/sunhat/other miscellaneous items I found tucked away in the back of the closet hiding beneath a...

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...

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...

This last minute Travelers Gift Giving Guide is...

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...

5 Perfectly Romantic Winter Getaways In The U.S.

    This post is sponsored by TUNG Brush. Living in Costa Rica is undeniably awesome. But as soon as the holiday season strikes so does our longing for a romantic winter escape. After all, we’re spending the majority of our year in a humid and tropical country, where we’re lucky if a rainy afternoon means putting on a sweater. So it’s hardly any wonder that right around Thanksgiving,...
