When we were planning our two week holiday in Vietnam, I did a lot of reading about traveling south to north, top places to stop and visit, and so on.  Phu Quoc didn’t make it onto many travel blogs or lists.  It wasn’t until a friend suggested it that we started researching and decided it would make a perfect...
View from Vinos las Nubes
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...
Mount Kilimanjaro
With one of Mount Kilimanjaro's dry seasons falling over our birthdays, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro became our 2018 birthday trip. We chose the Rongai route as it was said to be a less popular route and we were hoping to avoid the crowds (as much as possible during one of the busier times of year)...spoiler alert: it was a great...
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...
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...

Antigua on Election Day

4 Days in Guatemala - Part 2 If you've read Part 1 of this story, you know we spent our first couple of days in Guatemala relaxing in Lake Atitlan.  On the afternoon of Day 3 of our 4-day adventure we arrived in Antigua.  Antigua is a small city surrounded by volcanoes about an hour away from Guatemala City.  It...
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...
Tacos and Beer
When I moved to San Diego back in 2008 it wasn't all that safe to travel to Tijuana - people had even stopped going over for an afternoon of cheap tacos and beers. As things started to change all I heard were nightmare stories about how long it took to cross the border on the way home and I...
Havana, Cuba
Now that it's easier than ever to get to Cuba from the United States, articles are popping up everywhere with what you should know and do before going to Cuba. Here is what we found helpful: Exchange US Dollars into Euros before you go. If you don't, you'll be charged a 10% tax when you exchange your money in...
