Travel Destinations

Do you need help choosing your travel destinations?

We're here as your expert guides with 22 years of nomadic travel experiences full of insights, stories and tips.

You can read our about page to learn more of that story.

We aren't country counters, choosing instead to immerse ourselves into a region and often revisiting multiple times to those places that captured our heart and soul.

It's about the memories, not checking off lists.

However for the counting part: We have lived in 5 countries, traveled to over 50.

We've traveled in-depth through the following regions: Australia, USA, Southeast Asia, UK, and Africa.

Other travel experts have provided tips and content for us on the destinations you see on this blog.

We aim to share with you information based upon personal experiences NOT desk research or collaborations!

This is real, authentic travel to help you do the same.


When choosing your travel destinations, it depends on factors like:

  • your personal travel style
  • your interests
  • the length of time you have available
  • and your finances.

Figure those things out first, then your options for where you can go start to take shape.

If you need help choosing your destination, check out the following posts filled with useful tips.

Otherwise scroll down to choose the destination you are interested in for many of our tips and highlights.

We get asked all the time what our favorite countries are. It feels like choosing your favorite child - you can't.

You love each country for different reasons and the memories you create there, which are often unique to you.

What we love and why may be different to you!

I mean would riding around the back of a pick up truck for 9 hours up a treacherous muddy mountain road with 20 people from the village plus bicycles, sacks of rice and potatoes and handcuffed prisoners be your idea of a good time?

It was one of our greatest adventures and most told stories ever!! (that was Uganda btw  - hear about it in our podcast episode.)

We're guessing you've looked around our site enough now to resonate with our vibe and style of travel. It's evolved as we have through the years - solo, couples and now family travel.

So in an effort to help guide you more, here are a few of our favorites around the world. Remember we have not been everywhere!!

Hover over each card to reveal the answers. I've tried to put them in order and some may have more than one answer!

Travel has been the focus of our life since 1997 - intentionally.

We don't plan on stopping that. We now have a base in Raleigh, NC - after being granted a Green Card for our extraordinary ability in the art of travel blogging.

We will continue to explore more of the US but also intend on traveling further abroad - Europe, South East Asia and Central and South America.

We can't wait to share more of our favorites as we experience them.
