Best Of The Rest – The Weekly Roundup

Tony's epic O-Face while biting into his first-ever piroshki in Seattle

Tony and I are two weeks into our Croatian getaway and are loving the slow life of travel.  We have been going non-stop for the past 4 months, so it is incredibly refreshing to finally take a breather to relax.  I would like to sit here and tell you all about our crazy adventures in Croatia thus far, but to be honest, we have done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING… and I adore it!

Luckily, you can instead live vicariously through some of our favorite world travelers in this week’s Best of The Rest series:

  • After spending nearly a month touring through France and Italy, I learned that staying skinny on the road with all the delicious temptations that surround you can be VERY difficult.  I thought my quest to stay bikini-ready-slim would get easier once arriving in Asia this Fall, but Christine proves that this is not the case!
  • Speaking of food, I was jealous to read about Captain and Clark’s recent journey to Portland, where they enjoyed delicious Piroshki’s… Tony had I had our first Piroshki experience last winter in Seattle and fell in love with these foodgasmic fried buns!
  • Here are some drool-worthy pics of the #1 travel destination on my bucket listWhat’s places are on YOUR list?
  • With our trip to Istanbul only a few weeks away, I am anxious to try out the infamous Turkish Baths.  As crazy as the baths sound from both Adventurous Kate and Four Jandals, it is considered a must-try experience in the area – Sign me up!
  • The first city on our RTW trip was Santiago and we loved it!  As you can imagine, I was surprised when a good friend of ours, Stephanie, did not have a similar vibe with this cityHas there ever been a city that you have loved that other people just can’t connect with?
  • During our travels, I have heard so many mixed reviews about India from other backpackers.  The one consensus: Nobody just says its ok. Either people love it, or hate it.  Based off of the feedback I have gotten from others, I imagine I would be in the “hate” category… But India is looking a little better after reading Keith’s article on the ten alternative things to do in India!
  • Planning for a RTW trip can be overwhelming and messy at times.  Luckily, Air Treks has your pre-RTW to-do list all mapped out for you!
  • WARNING: Do not read this article’s on Paris pastries on an empty stomach… This is some serious food porn!
  • One of the top destinations on our travel bucket list has always been Capetown in South Africa. Unfortunately, it is a place we wouldn’t want to visit on our tight budget.  With any luck, we will be able to visit this amazing city someday and ball out at one of Angie’s favorite hotels!

Welcome Angie! We haven’t been yet but we may be flying out of there on May 31st and will probably stay in town the night before our flight. When are you around until?

While in Paris, I discovered that I was obsessed with Nutella Crepes… Your pic made me want one so bad. But I never had it with the banana… Sounds amazing though!
