Bucket List: Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico

After taking my first hot air balloon ride in Sri Lanka, I am psyched to try some stateside adventures that involve this classic mode of transportation. It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. Once the burners turn off, the world goes quiet from up above. There’s nothing else like it. A couple of years ago, Shauna had the pleasure of attending the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with Pure Wander. She brought her...

Three Perfect Destinations: Baltimore, D.C. and Richmond

While living outside the U.S., I’ve fielded tons of questions on how to have the best vacation in America. People all over the world come far and wide to take trips across the U.S., usually hitting the big, iconic hotspots. Many people I meet in London and throughout Europe have been to New York City, Orlando, or even Los Angeles. But the rest of the country is often lost on them.

A Winter Escape on Captiva Island, Florida

It was the first day of the Sanibel and Captiva Islands trip off the gulf coast of Florida, and I’m being hit with a storm. There’s a riptide advisory against swimming, but it went ignored as my husband (X) was determined to get in the water. We has endured months of freezing London weather, then an additional two snowy weeks in Boston. It was time to...

What’s Your WORST Travel Selfie?

Nothing gives out a bigger vibe of FOMO than those gorgeous travel photos we see all over the internet. We strive to have the perfect angle in front of a sparkling beach, holding an adorable animal or dangling off a cliff over some snow-capped mountains. And when we’re lucky, we get that awesome shot that goes right into our profile picture and shared across every social media outlet. But, there is a secret we all are keeping....

Should you live in NYC or London?

Should you live in NYC or London?

When X and I were debating on a move out of Boston, we narrowed it down to three key places. I wasn’t cray about heading to the West coast, so we then were choosing between New York City or London. While both cities are massive urban sprawls bursting with a cultural melting pot of magic, London did eventually win us over in the end. But what if we did pick NYC? The debate over whether New York or London reigns supreme is one that has...
