Basilica de la Merced, Cusco

Cusco has many beautiful ornate old buildings and one of these is the Minor Basilica de la Merced, an old church and convent in Cusco located just one block away from Plaza de Armas.

Ballestas Islands, Peru

The Ballestas Islands is a set of small rocky islands off the coast of Paracas, Peru. We saw a dizzying number of birds, as well as sea lions, penguins, starfish and crabs and we thought it was totally worth it. They’re called the poor man’s Galapagos, because of the surprising amount of wildlife that call the […]

Mundo Alpaca

Mundo Alpaca is kind of an unusual spot in the center of Arequipa. If you haven’t been, Arequipa is the second largest city in Peru. Mundo Alpaca is one of the sights listed on Tripadvisor. I really didn’t know what to expect and I think I was expecting a farm of some sort, but it’s […]

Kuang Si Waterfalls, Laos

Kuang Si Waterfalls is a beautiful location for photographers looking for some gorgeous Luang Prabang photography. We went for the turquoise waters of the falls that we’d heard a lot about. It’s probably on every list of the top things to see in Luang Prabang. But we had no idea that the Tat Kuang Si […]

Baker Beach, California

Where better to get that iconic Golden Gate Bridge beach shot than from Baker Beach? This hidden gem is rarely as crowded as Crissy Field Park, which is the other popular spot. Located on the San Francisco side of the bridge, Baker Beach is just west of the bridge, with relatively easy parking. Being west […]

Tikal National Park

When I first planned our trip to Guatemala, I had no idea we could see the ruins of one of the most powerful Mayan kingdoms, Tikal National Park. It’s the kind of place that brings out the Indiana Jones in all of us. And when I figured out how to get to Tikal early, I […]
