Andorra Travel Blog

Winding Road in Andorra.

Andorra. Beautiful. Gorgeous. Breath-taking. Stunning. But, as pretty as it is, there are exactly three things to do in Andorra in the summer. Shop, hike, and eat. And there are exactly three things to do in Andorra in the winter. Shop, ski, and eat! It’s small, but it’s still worth it. Having traveled all over Europe, and finding it so easy to jump over from some of our favorite places in France, we still discovered this small country to be unique and interesting from all the rest.

36 Hours in Brunei

Brunei water village complete with school, mosque, and markets.

Unlike places like Doha or Dubai or even Reykjavik, Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB) doesn’t really lend itself as a stopover. You pretty much have to head there on purpose and it’s probably going to cost you. Traveling around Borneo, it’s hard to pass up a chance to go to the Sultanate of Brunei. A tiny Asian country, located on the eastern coast of the island, it’s one of the richest countries in the world. It’s small, it’s Muslim, and it’s poverty-free, all compelling reasons to visit. Brunei’s tag line is, “The Green heart of Borneo.” How long does it take to see Brunei? Unfortunately there just isn’t that much to do for a perpetual tourist like me. Before booking our …

Xian Itinerary and Terracotta Warriors Planning Guide

The Grand Mosque is one of the premiere tourist attractions in Xian.

As iconic and exotic as Egypt, every child in America learns a little about Chinese history; it was one of those places that I just could not wait to get to when I moved to the continent of Asia. The Great Wall, the Forbidden City, and the world heritage Xian Clay Army are probably the top three sights to see, and we were going to do just that on our first trip to China.

A Travel Guide to China

One of the reasons I think people travel, is to get out of their comfort zone.  There is no place better to do this than China.  I’ve been to China on numerous occasions, and it has never failed to show me something new and exotic.  Very much like the U.S., China is so big that you cannot really get a sense of it unless you travel further than just Beijing.  Like in most capital cities, Beijing is crowded, busy, and used to seeing foreigners.  There is plenty to see and do there, but getting out and meeting the people will make all the difference in a trip. The first time I went to China, I went with my two teenage …
