Not all shoes are up for the challenges of travel. After field-testing like crazy, I’ve found FOUR excellent pairs of travel shoes for men. Yes, four. Sure, it may sound extra, but let’s be real – you’re not winning any dude-awards wearing your Reef flip flops hiking or to a four-star restaurant, my guy. These shoes are each lightweight enough to pack easily, yet sturdy enough to handle absolutely anything – and I’ve put them through the ringer just to make sure. With these four shoes, I’m able to handle snow, rain, high-altitude hiking, cobblestones, mud, sand and everything in between. I don’t think twice about what shoes to pack for trips – I just stuff these into my pack and go, knowing I’m covered no matter what adventure I’m up against. They’ve changed my travel game entirely – and they can change yours, too!
Salt Lake City, Utah is nicknamed “Ski City” for a reason: there are several incredible ski resorts within an hour’s drive of the airport! Here’s everthing you need to know to plan a Salt Lake City winter weekend getaway. So throw on your favorite 80’s ski suit, find some dude named Scooter to be your arch-nemesis, come up with a weirdly specific and unnecessarily dangerous competition, and let’s get ready for your personal Ski City Montage. *cue cheesy 80’s sax music*
For years, Lia and I have been longing for a Disneyland Scavenger Hunt that we could play with our game-loving friends and family. We’re the kind of people who get aggressively competitive on game night. Like, Lia once faked an ankle injury during a game of Laser Tag on the streets of San Francisco just to slow down her brother in law, who had teamed up with me on the opposing team. It was the week of our wedding. And for the record, it worked.
We needed something to make our Disneyland trips EPIC. To give us an excuse to DESTROY one another. But sadly, we couldn’t find a Disneyland Scavenger Hunt that wasn’t either laughably easy (basically glorified games of I-Spy) and/or designed for kids. So, we made our own! In this post, we’ll be sharing our favorite do’s & dont’s for your next Disneyland trip, plus a taste of our epic 100-point Disneyland Scavenger Hunt.
I spent ages searching for the perfect pair of travel pants to bring on our year-long backpacking trip. What I quickly found was every pair of men’s travel pants falls into two categories: there’s the baggy pants with elephants on them, and then there’s the baggy pants with 86 cargo pockets & 53 zippers. But then, finally, I found 3 pairs of men’s travel pants that are EXACTLY what I wanted. They’re functional, techincal, and not hideous! These are the only 3 pairs of men’s travel pants you’ll need.
Planning a trip to Colombia? We spent 1 month backpacking in Colombia and fell in LOVE with this amazing country. It was our favorite South America travel destination! Here’s a super detailed 1 month itinerary for backpacking in Colombia, including Cartagena, Minca, Santa Marta, Parque Tayrona, San Gil, Medellin, Salento, and Bogota.
I grew up in an area of California called the Central Coast. There are no big cities there – nothing like a Los Angeles or a San Francisco, although the area sits exactly in between the two. Instead of bustling cities, what you’ll find is much quieter: about 200 miles of scenic coastline, plus hundreds of wineries, thousands of hiking trails, dozens of charming towns, a smattering of natural hot springs, and enough great food and beer to keep you occupied for months. The Central Coast offers everything from sugar-sand beaches and great surfing, to wine country, to adorable marine wildlife critters (otters! Seals! Sea lions!) and groves of Monarch butterflies flitting through delicious smelling eucalyptus trees, to sheer cliffs looking down on crashing waves. Here are 8 quintessential Central Coast getaways for your next Highway 1 road trip!
