Hvar, a charming island in Croatia off the Dalmatian coast in the Adriatic Sea has quickly moved it’s way up to my favorite place in the world. Yes, you heard that right. This is my favorite place I have EVER been for countless reasons, and because of that, I am very excited to tell you about this incredible island that now means so much to us.
Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, is a city rich of history with friendly locals and delicious food. It is often overlooked by tourists who come to Croatia to travel the popular Dalmatian Coast, but provides a great addition to any Croatia trip to see a different side of Croatia. While Zagreb is an easy city to visit and enjoy, you don’t need more than a couple days here to see the highlights and gain appreciation for this city.
Martha’s Vineyard is a serene island off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts. If you are looking for a place to go to relax and be surrounded by beauty, great food and (seriously) happy people, you should travel to Martha’s Vineyard. This is a great destination for couples, friends and family. Don’t overlook this gem off the east coast- it will be a place you’ll never forget.
If you are looking for a charming, affordable, easy to visit city in the heart of Europe, Prague is your answer.
From all the places we’ve gone, we’ve never loved a place as quickly as we did Prague. Every cobblestone street we turned on seemed more magical than the last. The views were incredible anywhere we were, the food was delicious, the people were extremely welcoming and the things to see and do were endless. We could have spent a month there without getting bored.
Because there is an overwhelming amount of things to do (and eat) in Prague, here is a short guide to help you plan your trip.
The Atacama Desert in Northern Chile is known to be the driest place on earth and is a truly unworldly place (Moon Valley living up to it’s name). We posted up in the remote town of San Pedro De Atacama for three nights and had some of the best travel moments of our lives. Since there is an overwhelming amount of tours and different ways to see the desert, we are going to break down for you how we spent our time, what was worth seeing and some pieces of advice for visiting.
Zion National Park is one of the most popular national parks in our country, and now we can see why. The beauty surrounding us cleared our minds and filled our souls. Coming back from a long weekend here, we wanted to share our recommended itinerary is when planning a visit to southwest Utah.
New York City is an awesome city with infinite possibilities of things to do or see. We had a weekend to spend there in June and wanted to make the most of our time there. Since we live in Chicago, just being in a city doesn’t do much from us (walking around Manhattan doesn’t feel too different than walking around the loop), so we wanted to experience things that stood out as things that make NYC special. If you’re planning a weekend here and need some ideas of how to spend your time, then this post is for you!
One of our favorite things to do when we travel is eat local cuisine. When we planned a trip to Lima, Peru, we knew this city would be focused around food (since Lima is known as the food capital of South America). We booked a food tour with Exquisito Peru (ultimate Barranco food tour) and it couldn’t have been a better, and tastier, experience.
While Moon Valley (locally named Valle de la Luna) isn’t actually on the moon, it’s the next best thing to it. It is a MAGICAL place located in the middle of the Atacama Desert (driest desert in the world!) in Chile. We booked our tour to Moon Valley with Denomades who hooked us up seamlesslyContinue reading “The Magic of Moon Valley”
Planning our trip to Santiago, Chile, we knew we wanted to try the best of Chilean food. What better way to experience than to not only try it, but learn to cook it! We took a cooking class with Uncorked Chile that was a highlight of our time in Santiago (and showcased the BEST food).Continue reading “Highlights of Chilean Cuisine”
