Surin Beach Phuket: Experiencing Phuket’s Softer Side

    Last year, we traveled through Thailand experiencing its two major cities: Bangkok and Chiang Mai, and bouncing around among the islands of Koh Lipe, Koh Lanta and Koh Samui. We were enamored by this tropical paradise from the very beginning, yet everyone we told our travel adventures to had one objection: we didn’t go to Phuket. It seemed as though everyone we talked to was shocked we...

Wedding Anniversary Recap: Our Past 5 Travel Celebrations

For the last five years, we’ve celebrated our wedding anniversary in a new destination, and year #6 will be no different. We can’t imagine a better way to spend our anniversaries than by exploring a new place together. This May 21st, we’re popping the champagne in Portugal. We’ll be taking a road trip from Lisbon up to Coimbra and Aveiro, then stopping in Porto and driving the Douro Valley,...

48-Hours In Delhi, India: What You Won’t Want To Miss

India is one of those destinations that we think every traveler should visit at least once in their lifetime. For starters, it’s a country that makes you feel just about every emotion all in one day: stress, wonder, joy, overwhelm. It’s a place overflowing with mouthwatering cuisine, exotic smells, mesmerizing monuments, and friendly Indians who will never shy away from asking for a photo together. And it’s vast size...

How To See Lava on Hawaii’s Big Island: Kilauea Volcano

If you’re traveling to the Big Island of Hawaii, then you won’t want to miss the mesmerizing opportunity to see lava as it flows across a lava field and pours into the ocean. We weren’t really sure what to expect before our most recent trip, but seeing lava on the Big Island turned out to be one of our favorite things we did!     Kilauea, one of the...

20 Postcards From The Garden Island: Kauai, Hawaii

It’s always great when you have family living in picture-perfect tropical locations. We would know, because we get tons of family and friends who come visit us in Costa Rica—and we absolutely love it! In our case, Dan’s sister is currently calling Oahu home, which means we always have a legitimate excuse to adventure to the always stunning Hawaiian Islands. On our last trip to Hawaii, we explored Maui...

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...

Uvita Waterfall: A Thrilling Natural Waterslide In Costa Rica

  If you’re looking for a unique waterfall experience in Costa Rica, then you can’t go wrong with the Uvita Waterfall. Conveniently located in central Uvita, this easy-to-access waterfall isn’t the tallest or the most dramatic—but it will get your adrenaline pumping in a totally one-of-a-kind way. While we have yet to work up the courage, thrill seekers won’t want to miss a ride on this all-natural waterslide that...

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...
