Before we went on our trip to Vietnam I did a lot, I mean A LOT of research on the best way to spend one or two weeks in the country – where to go, what not to miss.  After all was said and done, here is where we ended up: Day 1: Saigon We arrived in Saigon late night. If...
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...

A Weekend in Queenstown

Queenstown
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...
Shanghai, China
While I have some recommendations and tips for a long layover in Shanghai, I have to admit, it didn’t make it on the favorite places list. Perhaps Shanghai requires a longer stay in order to truly appreciate it (and I must admit there were places I had on my list of things to do and see that I didn’t...
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%...
View of Brooklyn
We kicked off the 2016 wedding season in Brooklyn, NY in June.  There a million and one restaurants, bars and things to do in NYC so I won't tell you where you HAVE to go - I'm no New York expert, but here are some (mostly) foodie highlights from our trip: Brooklyn meadowsweet - Located in Williamsburg, we went here for...
African Tree
After getting our bearings in Cape Town for a couple of days, we took a quick flight to George to explore the other side of the Western (and a small part of the Eastern) Cape.  We (Toby) cautiously drove on the wrong side of the road to Knsyna, a small town we were calling home base for a couple...
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!)...
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...
We only had a short time in Norway, between weekends in Copenhagen and Stockholm, so we opted to skip Oslo and head straight for fjord country. We took a quick flight from Copenhagen to Bergen, picked up our rental car and were at our hotel in no time. Stay We used our Chase Sapphire points and stayed at the Augustin Hotel....
