Picturesque Halong Bay, Vietnam

When planning out our Vietnam portion of our travels, we knew that Halong Bay was one of the must visits during our time in the Northern part of Vietnam. The only problem was that we were going during a not so ideal time in terms of weather, as it was winter time. Being the Los Angeles kids we...

Seville, Spain

We arrived in Seville (or Sevilla as the locals would say) around 7PM and were shown to one of the cutest Air Bnbs we've stayed at yet.   Our host, Ana, is super sweet and nice and even wrote us a little welcome note with a small bottle of champagne waiting for us in the...

Eating our way through Barcelona, Spain

We had some really good eats while in Barcelona, and sightseeing and trying local food go hand in hand when we travel anywhere.  Besides the delicious Paella and Jamon, Barcelona has a big tapas culture, which are a bunch of small dishes you eat to make up your meal.  We love this, because it means...

This was the place I was looking forward to the most out of all of our sightseeing in Italy.  Unfortunately for us, the day we booked our tour was the day it was pouring rain in Rome.

Spending our Anniversary in Ljubljana, Slovenia

For our 2 year wedding anniversary, we decided to take a day trip to the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana. I’m sure you’re already asking yourself, how the heck do you pronounce the name of the city?

Zagreb, Croatia

We left Buenos Aires to begin the next segment of our trip in Europe starting off in Croatia. It was a grueling journey to Croatia as we had to make two stopovers - first in Sao Paulo, Brazil, then another one in Madrid, Spain. We eventually arrived at our destination and was met with very pleasant...
