Six Places You Should Definitely Visit in 2018!

A new year is definitely time for new adventures!! Here are some of our top places to go in 2018 that have been travel approved by us!!

Prague, Czech Republic

Looking to travel Europe but are someone who is on a budget? Prague is definitely the place to hit up. From its beautiful architecture, to the sights and sounds you are definitely going to want to check it out. It also has a astronomical clock that has been working since 1410. Also if you are a food lover make sure try the goulash and grab a Pilsner beer. We personally recommend traveling during the Christmas season in order to see the markets and enjoy some yummy hot mulled wine. Continue Here!

How We Did Our Quick Trip to Prague

Where We Ate

As two people who both love food but want to live a healthy lifestyle we need to maintain a balance of indulgence and health. We have been living outside of the States for 10 months now. So when we found out there was a Mexican restaurant in Prague with good reviews and a burrito, we knew we had to make a stop. Granted, it doesn’t compare to the real deal. BUT, my oh my did it satisfy those cravings and make two people happy! Continue Here!

Our First Ukrainian Orchestra!

When you live in another country, you expect things to be a little different. The language, the food, the holidays, etc. At the same time, there are things you expect to be similar: parks, some brand name items, etc. We recently discovered that orchestra concerts are not in the category of things that are consistent. However, we also learned that trying as many different activities as you can lead to some amazing stories. Continue Here!

50 Boredom Busting Tips for Travel

Traveling is a lot of “hurry up and wait”. You have to run to make sure you don’t miss you plane, but then you get there and have to wait because of a delay. I don’t know about you but I tend to get pretty bored waiting around for a plane, or sitting on a 15 hour bus ride [travel isn’t all about the glamour :)]. But you have to break a few eggs to make an omelette, right? So to help you out for your next waiting experience, here are some of our best tips to beat the boredom! Continue Here!

Hammocking in the trees of Hawaii

The Best Hammock: ENO or Grand Trunk

When talking about what is the best hammock for someone new to hammocking there are always a lot of worry. What is the best, or will last the longest, or is the smallest? This is one of the biggest debates I hear because having a good hammock can come in handy for travelers and adventures of all sorts.   Continue Here!

Cheapest Cities in Europe to Visit

When most people write about cheap European travel, they usually tend to leave out most of Eastern Europe. That is a terrible mistake to make, because this region houses some of the cheapest cities in Europe. Infograph of Cheapest European Cities

We are currently living in Ukraine about four hours from Kiev (the cheapest European city to visit).  For those of you who do not know how to convert pounds to dollars, 15 pounds is roughly 20 dollars. So in Kiev according to this chart, it will cost you about $20 a day, which is a steal! But it gets better, we never go to Kiev because it is too expensive  for us compared to our town! In Ukraine outside of Kiev, Lviv, and Ivano Frankivsk you could easily live on $10-15 a day. Continue Here!
