Before we went to New Zealand, anyone who had been told us how much they loved Queenstown. After visiting, we feel exactly the same. Queenstown is a gorgeous little town surrounded by mountains with beautiful views of Lake Wakatipu. It's situated relatively south on the South Island and is pretty easy to get to via plane from most other...
Tongariro Crossing
When we first started planning our trip to New Zealand we planned on spending the entire trip in the South Island, aside from flying in and out of Auckland. Then we learned about the Tongariro Crossing. After reading about the hike we decided to switch our plans up a bit and spend a few days in the North Island...
New Zealand
Many times when we've talked to people about going to New Zealand, they say they'd need 3-4 weeks to explore the country. Yes, that would be nice. Yes, there are many spots we'd like to go back and get to visit that we didn't get to on this trip - but, isn't that true of most countries you've been...
While it is small in size, the dining options are surprisingly varied and wonderful. Check out our suggestions...
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...
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...
When we jumped on the $200 error fare to Santiago, I'll be honest, I had NO idea what we were going to do for a week (okay, eight days) in Chile. I assumed we'd have to stick to a bunch of day trips from Santiago (which, upon my research, really wouldn't have been such a bad trip at all!)...
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...
View from W Santiago
I fell in love with Buenos Aires in 2012, but hadn't been back to South America since. Toby had spent 3 weeks mountaineering in Peru in 2011 - and we knew we were getting due for another trip down south. I had always assumed the next stop would be Rio, maybe somewhere in Colombia, until we scored $200 flights...
