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 …

Tanzanian Safari-ing + Zanzibari Lazy-ing

As usual, I'm about half a century behind on blogging...my bad. Here we go again: Days 223-238: After wrapping up in Kenya, we spent just over two weeks in Tanzania, with 6 of those days (5 nights) spent on safari and the remainder spent appreciating the glorious heat, humidity, and clear waters of Zanzibar.

10 Days of Ancient Greece

To say that I've been slacking would be a serious understatement...sorry! Here we go again: After 2 much needed (semi-relaxing) weeks over the Christmas holidays with family in Luxembourg, we headed towards Greece.

Photo Post – Enchanting Nepal

While we were in Nepal, the weather wasn't bad, but there were a lot of clouds and haze. That meant that some of the views we were hoping for didn't materialize. The 2015 earthquake also unfortunately destroyed a lot of the historical temples and there is still a long way to go with the restoration …

India, part 2

Our whirlwind tour of India continues... Day 78: And now to Agra we go We got an early morning start on our 6 hour (bumpy) drive to Agra and stopped in Fatehpur Sikri along the way--former capital of the Mughal Empire. It served as a home for all 3 (!) of the former king's wives …

Photo Post – Inspiring India

Our tour in India was a whirlwind. Sally will have all the details but it's a lot to write up, and, of course, I have way way too many photos. Here are a select few that I thought turned out really good, but it really is only a small sliver of what we saw.  New …
