Oh, For the Love of Dogs

A white street dog in Peru with blue eyes

It was just the dog and me. We were alone at night. I heard a noise downstairs, he heard it too. We looked at each other quietly. If a dog could talk we probably would have said What was that? in unison. “Go downstairs and check it out,” I whispered to Bo. I called him … Read more

Can You Afford to Travel to Antarctica?


In October of 2016, we bought a one-way ticket to Costa Rica to begin our life of full-time travel. Many have asked us since that time what does it cost to live on the road. On our first year of travel, we explored Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, and Ecuador. Our entire living expenses that … Read more

Feature image photo credits to Massimo Bassano of Albatross Expeditions I used to watch StarTrek when I was a kid and would dream of exploring space beyond our galaxy.

Exploring the Patagonia Region

Torres del Paine in the Patagonia Region

After our first taste of Patagonia in Bariloche, we were ready to see more of the snow-capped mountains and pristine lakes that are the main features of the area.

A place of extreme weather and beauty that draws people from … Read more

Hiking the W Trek in Torres del Paine

From the Q Trail Torres del Paine

Everyone we met that had been to Torres del Paine raved about it. The trek had been on their bucket list for years. It is so popular that campgrounds in the park sell out several months in advance. We were in North Brazil having just left one of the most beautiful places we had seen … Read more

Year 2: Five Things About Travel That Surprised Me

On our first year of travel we managed to spend under $5000 each. Within the first month of Year 2, we promptly blew halfway through that figure with a trip to the Galapagos Islands. Forget about having a budget streak. The end of our second year also marks the end of our adventures in South … Read more

Day Hikes in El Chalten

Fitz Roy; El Chalten

My first view of El Chalten was from the window of the overnight bus that we took after crossing the border from Chile. With the early morning sun already shining brightly in the distant horizon, we walked along promenade-like Güemes street. El Chalten is considered the hiking capital of Argentina. Among the art installations along … Read more

The Perito Moreno Glacier extends from the Patagonian Icefields which is the third largest in the world (the largest being Antarctica followed by Greenland).
