Its low elevation and tame ups and downs means W Trek isn’t the most difficult trek out there. But to complete this 5-day trek still requires a certain amount of fitness. This is our story on this famous trail in Patagonia. Unfiltered.
These San Francisco ghost tours will take you to haunted places in San Francisco while telling stories of murders, mysterious deaths, and hauntings.
First, I want to get this out of the way: planning W Trek Torres del Paine in high season was one of the most frustrating things I’ve ever undertaken. Dealing with various campground companies, their broken online reservation systems, and the dozens of unanswered emails caused moments where I just wanted to say “F*** this, …
It took us 2 tries for us to complete Laguna de Los Tres dayhike, one of the most popular dayhikes in Patagonia. But when we made it, it was glorious! Read on to learn about everything you need to know about doing a dayhike to Laguna de Los Tres: our experience, the trail, and the cute basetown of El Chalten.
Not having to carry around a tent and sleeping bags meant that this packing list for Patagonia is quite minimalistic. We managed to pack very light. Light pack = happy trekkers. We got nothing to prove 🙂
Visiting an estancia in Patagonia is an opportunity to see what goes on in “real” Patagonia and to meet the people who work the seemingly inhospitable land. For many, it ends up being one of the highlights of Patagonia trips.
Is Lake Atitlan one of the most beautiful lakes in the world? I think so. Here are my favorite villages in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. I stayed in 3 different villages (Pana, Santa Cruz, and San Pedro), and visited a total of 8 different villages around Lake Atitlan.
Who knew that a jungle sunrise can cause such a commotion? Sunrise at Tikal was eerie and beautiful, it gave me goosebumps.
Guys, it was simply magical (and I don’t use this world lightly)
10 day in Guatemala wasn’t enough time to do everything I wanted to do so, but I did manage to see what I felt was some of the best highlights Guatemala has to offer.
As one of the least visited national parks, Great Basin sounded kind of great, exactly what I was looking for. I love the fact that more and more people are getting outdoors, but some of my favorite outdoor places started to feel a little crowded this year.
I’m exhausted. This has been one busy summer. I’m not complaining, oh no. Quite the opposite, I feel… accomplished. There were cooking over campfires, swimming in lakes, travels to new countries, and conversations with friends and families. Things that great summers are made of. This year we broke from the tradition of staying in the …
South Beach is all about the glams and the blings. South Beach is where excesses are flaunted and skins are shown. In theory I should feel more at home in low key (har har) Key West, but in reality I fell in love with South Beach vibe the moment I stepped out of my cab in front of my hostel.
There are a lot of great stops along the way to Key West – many are nature or outdoor related. My Florida Keys itinerary includes state parks, snorkeling stops, and plenty of breaks for key lime pies and conch fritters! As with any classic roadtrip, getting there is 90% of the fun.
I came to Crystal River, Florida to snorkel with manatees and the experience went above my already ridiculously-high expectation. Manatees are officially my new favorite water animals.
In Weeki Wachee, Florida, mermaids are real enough. As a matter of fact, there are more mermaids here in than the town’s inhabitants (Weeki Wachee, pop: 12, slogan: “The Only City Of Live Mermaids!”).
I didn’t love Cuba. I didn’t hate it either. Looking back at my time in Cuba, some memories shine brighter than others. Here are a few of them. Not all are pleasant, but they are all definitely memorable.
Wyoming’s Wind River Range is one of my favorite discoveries during our year-long climbing road trip. I can spend a whole summer here. I can keep coming back year after year. Our destination on this trip is Freemont Peak.
Here in the Bay Area, the only consolation about rainy winter days is knowing that rain here = snow in the Sierras. As you’re reading this, Jack and I would be on our way to meet up with a couple of good friends of ours who have invited us to spend the weekend in their …
Huaraz, Peru About 3 weeks ago, Jack and I decided that if there was one trek we were going to do in Peru, it was going to be the Huayhuash Trek. And even though it had some ‘I swear this is the last trek we’re doing!‘ moments – looking back at it, we’d do it …
We’re actually in Lima right now playing catch up with emails, work, the blog, and travel planning after a 2 week hiatus from civilization.
Stories from the 10-day trek we just did in the Cordillera Huayhuash will follow. In the meantime, hope you enjoy some of our favorite sceneries taken from this trek.
Before we came to Wyoming, I’d never heard of the Cirque of Towers. Or the Wind River. I hope to return to this place again and again in the future.
