Day 4: Bangkok to Siem Reap and Phnom Bakheng Sunset

August 31, 2018 At 3:30 am we woke up, gathered our things, then checked out of the Novotel. It was relatively quiet in the airport at that time so we were up to the check-in counter by 4:30 am. It was so interesting to see the number of people sleeping everywhere. It was like anywhere… Continue reading Day 4: Bangkok to Siem Reap and Phnom Bakheng Sunset

5 Tips for a 24-hour Layover in Brussels

Long layovers are genius. Our time in Brussels was the first layover I didn't spend in an airport and I don't know how I've lived this long without doing one. For those travelers like us with a limited amount of time away from work, this is the ideal way to sneak in an additional city… Continue reading 5 Tips for a 24-hour Layover in Brussels

Day 21: Travel from Athens to Santorini, Greece

September 19, 2017 - Our flight to Santorini was at 10:15am so we planned to be extra early in order to take advantage of the lounge for breakfast like we did in Naples. While we knew the Athens airport was pretty big, we had no idea where the lounge would be located. So we added… Continue reading Day 21: Travel from Athens to Santorini, Greece

Day 20: Athens Sightseeing

September 18, 2017 - One thing that doesn't change from city to city is the fact that the best time to visit any famous site is early in the morning. With that in mind, we made sure we were ready to ascend the Acropolis to the Parthenon around 8:00am. This was not only important in… Continue reading Day 20: Athens Sightseeing

Day 19: Delphi Ruins and Hosios Loukas Monastery

September 17, 2017 - When I was researching tours to Delphi, I could not find one that was both high quality yet cost effective. In Greece, they have a problem with unlicensed tour guides. You might find a cheap tour that sounds great, but the guide might not be licensed. There are signs everywhere when… Continue reading Day 19: Delphi Ruins and Hosios Loukas Monastery

Day 18: Travel from Sorrento, Italy to Athens, Greece

September 16, 2017 - This wasn't the earliest morning of our trip, but it was still a rough one. Our flight to Athens wasn't until 10:35am, but in order to get through security, have time for some breakfast at the lounge, and find our gate (we had no idea how big the airport was) we… Continue reading Day 18: Travel from Sorrento, Italy to Athens, Greece

Day 17: The Island of Capri

September 15, 2017 - Our ferry to Capri was departing at 7:15am, so we made sure to leave our B&B by 6:30am. I bought ferry tickets before our trip so we couldn't change our departure time. It worked out for us, but if we did it all over again we would have just waited until… Continue reading Day 17: The Island of Capri

Day 15: Travel from Rome to Sorrento, Italy

September 13, 2017 - We didn't need to be anywhere early on this morning so we woke up a little later. Our check out time for our Airbnb was 11:00am, but our train wasn't until 2:40pm. So we decided we would plan to leave with all of our things at 11:00am and just slowly make… Continue reading Day 15: Travel from Rome to Sorrento, Italy

Day 14: Colosseum and Rome Sightseeing

September 12, 2017 - We let ourselves sleep in a bit this morning and didn't get up until around 8:00am. I think we were both starting to feel the effects of walking 10+ miles per day and lack of sleep. Traveling with those packs every 2 - 3 days wasn't a cake walk either. Our… Continue reading Day 14: Colosseum and Rome Sightseeing
