Imagine the wind in your hair, your body feeling the surge of the waves, and breathing in all that fresh sea air! If you are spending time in Split, you must make time to get out on the Adriatic Sea. This was our first time sailing and we are definitely hooked. There is an energy that comes with being aboard a sailboat. When the wind is just right, everything comes alive! The crew members work in unison, using all the essential parts, to set in motion this big, powerful racing ship. It really is an exciting experience and one that we highly recommend.

Address Controversy Related to Ep. 51: Long, Hot, and Smelly
September 3, 2016– This video, Ep. 51: Long, Hot, and Smelly, was and still is a harmless, satire video based upon the budget savvy traveler lifestyle. We decided that we needed to formally address this topic as we’ve been harassed, threatened, and bullied all over the internet. Up until now it really didn’t bother us as we knew we never made any hateful, derogatory, or insulting comment about anyone or any group specifically. What has bothered us is fellow travel bloggers taking this great opportunity to spread hate on other travelers who do things a little differently, act a little quirky, and don’t fit the status quo. Continue reading Press Release – Welcome to the REAL world

There’s a growing movement in the US that we’ve been following from afar. It’s the notion that society has become way too politically correct to function successfully. And you know what? We couldn’t agree with this more! In fact, we are catapulting ourselves onto the bandwagon and would be honored to lead the un-PC parade. Many would think this only applies to the world of politics, but even in our world of travel blogging, being politically correct has gotten WAY too out of control. It’s almost made us wonder how worthwhile travel blogging even is when people are scared to offend or to give their honest opinion.
Bucharest is the first city that Harry and I were in disagreement about as a travel couple. He liked the energy of the Old Town, variety of restaurant options, and the historic architecture. But for me, I had difficulty enjoying the crowded streets, noisy traffic, and the party scene. In addition, it was hard to avoid the abundance of homeless men which were always doing nasty things like drinking while sitting in their own vomit, publicly urinating, and picking on their seeping leg wounds. I joked that maybe if I only looked up, maybe I’d like the city more. Maybe that’s why so many of my favorite activities took my feet off the ground.

We love getting off the well-worn track of Europe’s major tourist hubs.

Niš is the third largest city in Serbia, and is just at the beginning stages of international tourism. It is quaint, safe, and walkable. After three days exploring this town, we developed a practical guide to help others get the most out of their stay here. Continue reading TRAVEL GUIDE TO NIŠ, SERBIA: WHAT TO SEE AND DO

As we continue to make our way around the globe, we’ve found that we truly enjoy recording our journey through the art of travel cinematography. Not only is it a better way to share everyday life events, but videography allows us to make clips that will forever be documented. Our travel memories are beginning to get a little fuzzy. Producing short, daily vlogs help answer the question, “Where did all the time go?”
