Bear cave? Bat cave? Cavemen? Any preconceived ideas on caves will be blown out of the water. There are no animals, semi-humanoid species or superheroes in these caves, but you may find Russell Crowe or TWB.

It’s not very often we are so shocked by our own misconceptions of a town. Clearly, we didn’t know about the surprise that awaited us in Nazareth.

I’ll admit it. I made the classic traveller’s mistake of not doing enough research before visiting a new town, in this case, Mitzpe Ramon. Erin already had done her reading and knew exactly what to expect, but I was in the dark. This was going to be the b…

After a rough few days the royal treatment was just what we needed and where else could we expect that then in Eilat, on the Red Sea, at the Hilton. You won't believe the temperature though...

We have never stayed in a hostel. Not in my time travelling as a solo. Not in my time travelling as a couple. And never with kids. In my mind hostels are roaches and thin mattresses, drunken people making too much noise and shady characters stealing your …

Part two of our epic journey from San Francisco to Seattle and back again. This post takes us from day 6 to 9 with a day in Seattle, getting the tyres fixed in some little US town, outdoor cinemas in Roseburg, off the grid camping at the Lava Beds Nationa…

After travelling New York to Florida on our East USA road trip, we were told several times that the Pacific North West was even prettier and we had to do it. Having never been camper vanning before we thought that would be a neat way to see all the natura…

Imagine the sophisticated, classic charm of San Francisco encapsulated into a single building and you’ve got the Huntington Hotel. Have you stayed? You are going to want to.

Ten nights in the sleepy surfer town of Rincon. How we hired our rental car, visited the beaches and discovered the food.

When one steps into such an magnificent rainforest home with killer views, you can feel two ways. One: overwhelmed, over cautious, pretentious. Two: at home and want to stay forever. I definitely felt the second one.
May 3, 2013 Highlights
It’s hard work constantly researching for a place to stay. What once was a joyful challenge during 2-4 holidays a year now is the bane of my existence. Sometimes so much that rarely book in advance any more. Check out some of the highlights in our 365 day…

It’s been a long 6 months since we left Penang and the last of the good Asian food we ever had. Verdanza to the rescue! Oh & they have a kids water park, which is pretty awesome too.
