Trip to Australia

Australia Postcard

“There is something special about seeing a mob of ‘roos bounding over the dry grass, especially at sunset.”  At least this is what we’d been told and we were on a mission to see it for ourselves. We’ve been to Australia a couple of times and seeing the diversity of wildlife was one of the main reasons we wanted to visit to begin with. Now, we just love the country and want to keep going back. If you are planning a trip to Australia, you can perhaps get an idea or two from one of ours. First we visited Queensland, and then second we were in Victoria. No, we’ve never been to Sydney, Uluru, Tasmania, Perth. There’s always next time. …

How To Travel Safely Anywhere In The World

How To Travel Safely Anywhere In The World

Staying Safe While Traveling How do you stay safe while traveling abroad? It’s on everyone’s mind. With recent events, no one can be sure where danger will strike next, so do you just stay home? The media might say yes, but I say no. There is just as much chance that there will be a dangerous incident in your home country as there is in another.  There just is no such thing as “the safest city in the world” if you ask my opinion. You can have an accident and get injured anywhere, but by taking just a few precautions and following these few travel safety tips, you can feel safer when journeying abroad.

Last week we published some epic places to go in our Part 1 of Top Travelers Best Destinations, and this week we have even more. 

Exploring Tbilisi: Our Top Ten List

Exploring Tbilisi: Our Top Ten List

I have to admit, when Corinne first came up with the idea of going to Georgia I was a bit hesitant. I don’t know what it was but for some reason I just wasn’t comfortable with the safety and security issues in the region. There had been a civil war in the country in the past two decades that had never been fully resolved. After some research, we cemented the plan to do a Georgia road trip, and of course we started in the capital city of Tbilisi. Enjoy this travel guide to Tbilisi and it’s top ten sights. Is Tbilisi Worth Visiting? As we were researching Georgia, all we found were positive reports with many sights to see and …

Traveling in Oceania – Trip Planner

Destinations in Oceania, North and South America

  Oceania  This continent is also sometimes called Australasia. I, quite frankly, don’t haven any idea what would be the most politically-correct name, so I’m deferring to the WorldAtlas that claims it has 14 countries.  We’ve only been to two, the biggies!  It goes without saying that we are going to have to finagle a way to see the rest!
