A guide to exploring Florida as a couple

A guide to exploring Florida as a couple

This post was last updated on September 26th, 2017If you and your other half are eager to get away from it all, then Florida is a great – and, more to the point, romantic – choice of destination. This south-eastern US state has a natural appeal due to its associations with warm and sunny weather, buzzing nightlife, and – of course – the Walt Disney World Resort. However, it can be especially exciting to explore with a partner in tow. Land into “the city where the heat is on” When you land in Florida, the exact space where your plane is likely to land is Miami International Airport, which is the state’s main international airport. This is super-convenient, as Miami is an attractive place in itself. It’s a big city with the variety that you would expect in its attractions, so you should think carefully about how you will get around it. SheKnows advises that you don’t rent a car in the city, due to how speedily costs of hotel parking and restaurants’ valets could add up. The majority of Miami’s visitors instead use taxis – which, provided that you are in one of the main neighbourhoods, you are unlikely to have difficulty hailing. If you visit Miami on your honeymoon, you would certainly be in good company; many other couples have indeed chosen it as a setting for their post-wedding celebrations. Those white and sandy beaches, internationally renowned hotels and great nightlife are powerful draws, as is Miami’s all-round ability to deliver a luxurious experience for what money you pay. From Miami to Key West Miami’s location on...
8 Things You Need To Know Before You Plan A Europe Road Trip

8 Things You Need To Know Before You Plan A Europe Road Trip

This post was last updated on June 1st, 2017   We’re gearing up for our next adventure – a road trip through Portugal! We’ll be heading from Lisbon through the Douro Valley up to Ponte de Lima, and we couldn’t be more excited. This will be the start of our six weeks in Europe, so be sure you’re following us on Facebook and Instagram for live updates along the way. ;) Road trips are one of our favorite ways to explore a destination. While it’s undeniably easy to get around much of Europe with public transportation, having four wheels offers another level of freedom and flexibility, while also making off-the-beaten-track gems much more accessible. Portugal marks our fourth Europe road trip. While of course we’re not experts on what it’s like to drive through every country on the continent, we have picked up some essential tips and tricks from our various (mis)adventures on the road.     Don’t be like us and end up with an expensive ticket in Italy or a potential fine in Finland. Before you jump behind the wheel, here are a few handy tips you’ll want to keep in mind for your Europe road trip:   8 Tips For An Epic Europe Road Trip   1. Find The Right Car     Obviously, the first step to a Europe road trip is finding the right vehicle! When renting a car, keep in mind that most Europeans drive manual. If you’re not comfortable with a manual, be prepared to pay a bit more for an automatic. For our last two road trips, we partnered with Economy...

A week in Sicily

Due to its versatile landscapes and rich history, it is no wonder that Sicily captivates so many that travel there. Full of cultural treasures, sparkling seas and vast mountains there is so much to see and do. However, what if you only had a week to explore this region? Sicily has an area of 25,711 km², so it may be hard to explore the whole island in just a few days. We suggest it might be better to focus on one particular area, for example, you can choose to visit the west coast of Sicily, or devote yourselves exclusively to the Etna area or the Temples in Agrigento. Those wishing to choose the west coast will be able to see a lovely handful of things to fill up your time. The ideal starting point is the beautiful town of Marsala, then heading towards Trapani, while taking mandatory stops in Erice and Sav Vito Lo Capo, and then continuing northeast towards Palermo. Before arriving in the capital of Sicily, which can be visited rather summarily in a single day, you should spend some time in the ancient Segesta, in Scopello and Castellammare del Golfo. If you have some time after the whirlwind tour in the centre of Palermo, you can use it for a quick trip in Monreale. Alternatively, Marsala, which is just 13 km from the Trapani international airport, can be the base of a memorable journey to the south-east in the direction of Agrigento. Among the approximately 135 km separating the two cities, lie the beautiful Mazara del Vallo, the Archaeological Park of Selinunte, Castelvetrano, Sciacca and Porto...
