Why you need to visit Valencia

In Valencia, wide plazas connect narrow streets, ultra-modern buildings stand alongside medieval monuments, and exquisite food is sold on the cheap. Add to that a mild Mediterranean climate and endless beaches, and you’ll wonder why Valencia is still overshadowed by Barcelona. Sure, Barcelona’s cultural attractions and nightlife are legendary, but so are the crowds. For a less touristy and more authentic experience on your Spanish getaway, look no further than Valencia. Here’s what to do. Va...

50 Photos that tell our 2018 story

Year in Review: 50 Photos from our 2018 travels Every year we have good intentions to write our ‘Year in Review’ posts before the year is complete. And, every year, we fall short of this goal. This year was no different. We had a wonderful end to the year and have spent the past week catching up and getting our lives back on track. 2018 will go down as the milestone year. We celebrated 10 years of marriage with a vow renewal ceremony on the beach in Mexico. We celebrated Cameron’s 40th birt...

Peneda-Gerês is the only national park in Portugal. And it’s incredible.

Peneda-Gerês is the single greatest national park in Portugal. It wins on a technicality, being that it’s the country’s only national park. But there’s a certain magic to the mountains and valleys of northern Portugal where Peneda-Gerês lies, snuggled up against Spain, that makes calling it the greatest feel apt nonetheless. Gerês, as it’s known locally, spans roughly 270 square miles of oak and pine forests, granite cliffs, peat bogs, marshes, rivers, and lagoons between the Castro Laboreiro...

British Family Had to Sit on the Floor For Their 900 Mile Flight

Back in 2012 Ryanair floated the idea of ‘standing seats’ to pack more passengers in and lower costs. And Airbus has a patent for ‘double decker’ seating. But neither idea is supposed to be real or is approved for flying — anywhere. That was little comfort to the family of three who had paid about $1700 to fly from Mahon in Spain to Birmingham in the UK on TUI airlines. They were assigned seats 41 D, E and F but because of an aircraft swap there were no seats like that. Continue reading British...

The healthiest countries to move to

Being healthier is one of the most popular of New Year’s resolutions. For some, this may include making big life changes — like moving — that make it easier to get and stay healthy. And healthy places aren’t just those with lots of gyms and juice bars. Places to make lifestyle changes are those that share a worldview of health — where physical health is important but so are access to outdoor activities, mental health, low-stress levels, fresh food, quality healthcare, and strong, supportive ...

The Tao of Not Traveling

At seventeen years old, I set out from home on my own for the first time. I was gone for ten months on a trip which took me around the globe in a northwestward fashion, at once both slowly closing and widening the gap that separated me from my parent’s farm in Manitoba, Canada. There was no great mystery in the trip – it was of a determinate length and I knew beforehand, more or less, the countries I would be passing through. What made it something notable to me was that the furthest I had gone...

What to do in the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are mostly known as a tropical vacation getaway. This archipelago of seven main islands and several smaller ones, owned by Spain but lying off the coast of West Africa, attracts European travelers looking for sun, sand, and, of course, an epic party scene. Many travelers, however, miss out on what makes the islands truly unique. Unlike most Caribbean islands, the Canaries are rugged and volcanic, with black sand beaches and even desert-like landscapes. Sure, you could book...

Barcelona: Local tips for visiting La Boqueria market

For the first couple of years that I lived in Barcelona, La Boqueria (or “Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria”, as it’s formally known) was my main market. I went there two or three times a week for fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, meats, and cheeses, and then hauled everything back to my apartment in the Gothic Quarter. Although the products were first-rate, there were days when shopping at La Boqueria was a real challenge, because of the big crowds of tourists both in the market and on La Ram...
