As you all may know, we have full-time jobs, so this limits us to really only visiting a few places a year, though we try to see as much as we can by combining multiple destinations on one trip and traveling around holidays where we are already off from work. Because of this, we thought it might be helpful to outline our upcoming travel so that you will know when and where we are going in the future. We will hopefully be updating this blog on a more ongoing basis as we book our travel (’cause you know, it’s not really real until it’s BOOKED)
This July (2019) we finally got a chance to visit a place that has been on our bucket list for a very long time, Africa! Since Sam is an animal lover and very against seeing animals at zoos and aquariums, Africa afforded us the chance to see these magnificent creatures in their own habitat! The beauty of this continent astounded us at every turn. Read on to learn how we spent our 2 amazing weeks here.
Because I had to go to Europe again for work, I (Sam) took an opportunity to spend a few days in London. Due the small amount of time I had there, I did a lot of research on how to best spend it, and I am going to share with you all what I chose to do.
After my work trip in Japan, I (Sam) needed a dose of relaxation from the demanding schedule I had just been working. Cebu was not too far so I decided to extend my trip and spend 4 days in this amazing place! Four days in the Philippines is definitely not enough, but it is better than nothing and gave me the taste I needed – to know if I’d want to return or not (hint: I do! It was glorious). So what did I do with my limited time? I spent it on Cebu Island relaxing and snorkeling. Read on to learn about my 4-day itinerary!
Only have a short time in Tokyo, and are curious what to do? I (Sam) was recently in the same situation while travelling to Japan on Business. Tokyo is a large city with many neighborhoods, and can seem quite overwhelming for a first timer. Once getting used to the city, it does not seem that bad at all. Having being from Long Island, just outside NYC, Jackie and I are pretty used to the urban big city environment.
From most likely wherever you come from, Tribhuvan Airport in Kathmandu will be the first thing you see of Nepal. From here, you’re on the first step of your journey to Everest Base Camp!
Hello, fellow travelers, Sam here! I’m here to talk about the day-to-day itinerary of our trip to Everest Base Camp. Everest Base Camp has been on our bucket list for quite a while, but we were always nervous to pull the trigger because we were worried about the difficulty of trekking that many days in a row at altitudes that we were not accustomed to here in the States. After finally completing the trek, we can ‘saif’ly say it’s completely doable for anyone with a reasonable fitness level. It definitely was the most difficult thing we have done in our lifetime but it is achievable and certainly incredibly rewarding!
After coming back from our amazing Everest Base Camp trip, Jackie and I had so many people say to us, “wow that must have been an expensive trip”. Well, the truth was, this was actually one of our most affordable trips we have done! Jackie and I love traveling, but what we love even more, is traveling in an affordable way. Being that we are not rich, by traveling this way, we are able to afford multiple trips a year. Our goal is to see the world and if we blew our entire budget on one trip, reaching our goal would be virtually impossible. Because we were able to do this trip so affordably, we thought it would be nice for us to share with you what and how we spent what we spent. Read on to learn how we afforded it and how you can too!
