8 places to go when you’ve been “everywhere”

Posted on July 26, 2018

I took a look at some statistics, and while back in the day, just 40% of baby boomers made some form of travel a top priority, millennials crush that percentage with 72% saying that traveling is at the top of their list. And it shows: America’sRead More

5 reasons to travel iceland by camper

Posted on June 27, 2018

  Before going to Iceland, Porter and I had never gone anywhere by camper. I think this was due to a combination of being intimidated by driving such a big vehicle and not really having gone to many places that mode of travel made sense in. In Iceland, though, it seems like for every hotel there’s a camper rental company to match, which is the first tip-off that this country is incredibly suited to camper travel. In fact, I wouldRead More

our iceland itinerary

Posted on June 13, 2018

  If you’ve been following along on Insta this week, you know that we’ve been spending some time in Iceland! This country has been on Porter and I’s bucket list for awhile now, and the fact that it is oh-so close to Boston (only a 5 hour flight!) made the lead up to this trip that much sweeter.   Since this is our first post from Iceland, we thought we would talk about our five day itinerary. We want toRead More

bali versus sri lanka: where to head next

Posted on May 4, 2018

This year, Porter and I were lucky enough to get the chance to spend just about a month in Bali (in April) and Sri Lanka (in February). These two countries are in no way identical or interchangeable from a cultural or geographical standpoint, but they do have a lot of similarities, which meant that on more than one occasion we got to talking about what we preferred about each one.   We thought we’d share the list that grew outRead More

our guide to the nusa islands

Posted on April 20, 2018

When it comes down to what I think people from the West picture when they picture Bali, the Nusa Islands deliver in every possible way. Sandy beaches, hidden coves, reefs teaming with life, bumpy roads and barely any road signs….   These islands still feel under-explored even though they have a bizarrely high percentage of some of the most beautiful sights in all of Indonesia, (let alone Bali) all of which are within an hour of one another. If youRead More

10 ways to have a more sustainable summer

Posted on April 9, 2018

In Indonesia right now (and from what we’ve been told, pretty much all year long) it already feels like August. If you’re from New England, you’ll know that’s the kind of heat where you basically are either in the water or melting, the kind where walking through a parking lot feels like walking across a frying pan, and the kind where you lay in bed at night on top of the sheets wondering if you should take one more coldRead More
