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...

Whether or not you follow a healthy lifestyle at home, traveling can throw a wrench in whatever routine you had going on. When we're home, we try to follow the 80/20 lifestyle - healthy eats and alcohol-free 80% of the time and head to the gym (or for a hike) most days of the week.But, as soon as we...

While summertime and winter holidays are popular times to travel, there are many benefits to traveling during the off-season. Peak travel can bring expensive price tags, overcrowded tours, and sold out flights and hotels.Of course, often times off-season travel means that you're not getting the ideal weather for the location you're visiting - however, that doesn't mean rain or...
Due to the fact that we were trying to fit so much into such a short period of time, we only had one day to go to Valparaiso. That day happened to be a Sunday, when many restaurants and shops were closed, but we still had a great time.We took a 90-minute bus ride from Santiago - check out companies...

Atacama Desert
Before we booked our flight to Chile, I had honestly never heard of the Atacama Desert. It wasn't until I started researching what there was to do outside of Santiago that I learned about this crazy, but awesome place. There are certainly a few things to know before you go!We spent two days and two nights in Atacama and...
Teotihuacan, Mexico
I had never given too much thought to Mexico City. After all, I'd done the beaches in Cancun and Cabo and the border was 30 minutes from my house. But after a couple of layovers there and hearing more and more good things about it, we decided to look at flights. $115 round trip from Tijuana. Done.Before I get into...
