2 Weeks in Peru

I am so tragically behind on this blog that it's embarrassing, but I refuse to give up, so onward! [Warning: this is a LONG one...] After a lovely 4 weeks of family and friends, it was time to get back on the road - we couldn't forget Latin America! We didn't plan this leg of …

Nepal – aka #wheresEverest

After India, we moved on to Nepal. As you can imagine, most of Nepal's tourism industry revolves around hiking in the Himalayas, especially Everest.

A city girl survives the desert

After a few days in the tropical rainforests of Australia, it was time for a visit to the Outback. I'll admit I was not excited about this part...at all. I'm a city girl through and through, so the idea of being in the literal middle of nowhere for 4 days was pretty unappealing--not to mention …
