After a few days in Buenos Aires we hopped on a plane and headed as far south as we could go. This placed us in the city of Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world and the closest place to Antarctica. It’s summer here and Buenos Aires can be very hot, but Ushuaia is much … More Tierra del Fuego and Penguins!
This is a post by David. One thing that I’ve learned while traveling is that I really enjoy B-List cities. And by that, I mean cities that are not their country’s capital, may not be extensively covered in guidebooks, but are still cultural, historic, and wonderful places. I don’t like the term “B-List” because that … More Second Cities: Porto and Valencia
This is a post by David. I first came to Siena, Italy years ago on a whim. I was studying in Venice with a few friends and we decided we wanted to visit Tuscany for the weekend. We picked Siena for no particular reason. We arrived to find people marching through the streets, waving strange … More Il Palio di Siena
Before we parted ways in Portugal, Lisa and Jared gave us €40 and said we should spend it on a nice dinner. Well, that’s exactly what we did and so we decided to create an “expense report” for them. In this report, their company is referred to as “Pine View Acres” (a story for a … More Expense Report
This is a post by David. After a week of good food and good times in the Azores, we traded the grassy hills and volcanic lakes of São Miguel for the hustle and bustle of Lisbon, Portugal’s capital. Lisbon is the quintessential European big city, not unlike Madrid. There are plenty of restaurants, museums, hotels, … More Lisbon

Anyone who knows me is aware of my penchant for picking up random skills (Indian vegetarian cooking, anyone? rock climbing? Kettlebell strength training?). It must come from my mother, who certainly is a Jill-of-all-trades. I just finished my most recent … More Back to School
Here’s a video wrap-up of our trip. We had to leave some things out, such as snorkeling, horseback riding, longtail boat trips, and all of the delicious food we ate. If we included everything, the video would be 9 weeks long. =) The catchy song is “Do-Ther-Tum” by Job 2 Do, a Thai reggae group … More The Epic Asian Video Montage
This is a post by David The coolest app I have on my iPhone is called 360 Panorama by Occipital. As you can imagine, it takes 360-degree panorama photos. And it is awesome. These all-around panoramas really help to give a sense of space. I took a lot of panoramas while we were in Asia … More Panorama-rama
We flew into Boston this morning (love that dirty water)! Although our adventure was amazing, it certainly is great to be home. Oh clean tap water, how we’ve missed you! We’ll put out a few more posts about our trip, so stay tuned. For now we want to take this post to say thanks to … More Back in the States (and Thank You)!
This is a post by David. We are currently on the Andaman coast in southern Thailand. We’ll be hopping around to different islands around here before heading to Bangkok next week. Southern Thailand is amazing, but first let’s talk about Siem Reap, Cambodia. We were in Cambodia last week and kept very busy by taking … More The Temples of Angkor
