View from Table Mountain
For the first couple of days and second week of our South Africa trip we used Cape Town as our home base. Although people talk about the city being dangerous and private security is everywhere, I had a great time and never felt unsafe. Where To Stay Urban Chic Boutique Hotel - we opted to stay on Long Street our first...

There have been a variety of articles written about Guadalupe Valley being the next Napa - being that Mexico is a drive, walk, and quick uber away (and much less expensive than Napa) I was excited to check it out.We walked across the border a little before 11am and called an uber. If you've never walked across the border...
Tarangire National Park
After climbing Kilimanjaro, we wasted no time starting our Tanzanian safari. We had four days before flying out of Kilimanjaro International Airport and we packed them full. Check out our safari adventures!
When WOW Air started their crazy flight deals from Boston to Reykjavik, I didn’t hesitate.  Knowing I would already be in Boston for my brother’s college graduation, it seemed like a simple choice to take the entire week off and spend the first part of the week in Iceland.  The flight from Boston to Reykjavik is actually shorter than...

4 Days in Israel

Beach in Tel Aviv
After throwing around a number of ideas, we settled on a trip to Istanbul over Thanksgiving 2013. Our only "problem"? It was going to be pretty chilly there and we wanted a few days in warmer weather. But in Eastern Europe at the end of November, where were we going to find that? A two-hour flight south, in Israel!Because...
Neon lights in Shinjuku
When we booked our flights to Vietnam we were lucky enough to build in a 21-hour layover in Tokyo into our itinerary.  I quickly started to research what we should do, where we should go, with less than 24 hours in such a large city.  Some people recommended just staying in Narita, much closer to the airport, but if...
Portland Schooner
Somehow after 22 years of living in New England, and numerous trips to Maine, I had never spent any time in Portland. I was given the opportunity to go this past weekend for a bachelorette party (sorry, Toby!). It was too quick a trip and I definitely want to go back, but here were my thoughts on what I...
The title of this post is a bit misleading – while we did make it to Tokyo on our way to Vietnam, our layover on the way home was only about 6 hours.  Not long – but enough to get out of the airport if you wish! We hopped on the train and in about 10 minutes we were in...
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...
When we spur of the moment bought plane tickets to Santiago, Chile (thanks again Orbitz and your error fare!) I had no intention of going to Patagonia. Between cost and the limited amount of time we had, it didn't seem like it was even an option. After I did a little bit of research I quickly realized it was 100%...
