A Guide to Holi Festival in India

India has been at the top of our list forever. Last year Jacob was invited on a fairly last minute work trip that happened to fall over Holi Festival in India. I was a bit more apprehensive of going last minute as I knew it would be tough to navigate (I’m always the planner when it comes to our travels!)….

A Guide to Visiting Temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia

Visiting ancient temples in Siem Reap truly feels like stepping into another world. Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world, and the most ancient.

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

If you read my post from earlier this month, you know this year was a big one for us. It’s also one of those years that completely flew by!

24 Hours in Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto is a beautiful mix of old and new. It’s one of those cities you can walk for hours and stumble upon something straight out of a magazine when you turn a corner. On one end of the spectrum, there are centuries-old temples in the midst of the city. On the other, trendy cafés that look like they could be…
