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...
Lanterns in Hoi An
While planning our itinerary for our two week trip in Vietnam, Hoi An kept coming up as many people's favorite place on their trip - and also the spot to go to if you wanted custom clothing made. It seemed a like a stop we couldn't pass up and I'm so happy we didn't - it ended up being...
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...
Plaza d'Espanya
In November 2015 I was lucky enough to travel to Barcelona to attend the IBTM conference. While I had to work some of the days I was there, I made sure to save some time for sightseeing (and eating lots of paella). These are my recommendations. Stay Catalonia Barcelona Plaza Hotel - due to the fact that I was attending a...
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...
4 Days in Guatemala – Part 1 After giving up my seat on a work trip from Florida and spending the night in Atlanta, I was awarded a $700 credit from Delta – I just had to use it within a year.  Knowing I didn’t have a lot of vacation days to play with because I was already taking a...
Growing up in the northeast, I was no stranger to Canada, we frequented Montreal between the ages of 18-21 and made a trip to Niagara Falls. But British Columbia - that was a whole world away. That was, until I moved to San Diego and then it was just a few hours of flights up the coast! Although we...
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...
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...
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...
