September 4, 2018 Our last morning in Siem Reap was an early one. We woke up at 6:00 am to finish packing and then went to breakfast at 7:00 am. Our driver would be taking us to the airport at 8:00 am. Our last breakfast was so good and our entire stay was incredible; I… Continue reading Day 8: Siem Reap to Chiang Mai
Read all about Day 7 of our journey through Southeast Asia. We explored more of Cambodia's deadly past and learned all about landmine detecting rats. We may have met one too!
Our day exploring the Grand Circuit of Angkor Wat... and accidentally eating bugs for dinner!
Preface Before I go too far into our adventure in Cambodia, I wanted to give you a little history and context to some of what you'll read in the next few posts. Cambodia is in a post-war state.

Our flight to Seoul, South Korea from Atlanta, Georgia wasn't until Midnight so we both worked a full day and still had time to go home to shower before we left for the airport. Around 9:00 pm, we called a… Continue reading Days 1 & 2: Atlanta, Georgia to Seoul, South Korea

It's very touristy and I was looking for the quintessential Greek island without the crowds. So how did we… Continue reading 5 Things I Wish I Knew Before Traveling to Santorini
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
