Best of the Rest (Week Ending 2/20/11)

  • Do men really have the upper hand in travel decisions?  And is Spain really not a desired travel destination for women?   If that’s the case, Tony and I might be an anomaly!
  • This story is reinforcement that Tony and I need travel insurance.  Feel better Adventurous Kate and let us know how World Nomads handles your claim!!  We could use some insurance recommendations!
  • Antarctica may be uber expensive and too cold for us Miamians, but it still looks badass…
  • …maybe we will just have to visit the glaciers in Argentina instead!
  • Tony can vouch that I am not a big fan of any ball sports – but maybe living in Buenos Aires (on the top of our list) and hitting up a Boca Juniors Soccer Game will change that
  • Lara Dunston sums up exactly what Tony and I hope to achieve from our trip abroad:  “Travel more slowly, more sustainably, and more experientially, to live like locals and engage more with people on the way.”
  • Even though Akila and Patrick’s travel budget is way higher than our planned budget, they offer some greats tips on living within your means while abroad!
  • Our wedding anniversary is in April, which marks the last month of Paris’ off-season…Maybe a romantic weekend during our trip abroad is in order?!
  • I read “Eat, Pray, Love” this past month and let me just say that Eibabeth Gilbert’s confession that Da Michele’s pizza in Naples was the best pizza in the world was a BOLD statement.  However, after reading Sarah Gonski’s review,  Tony and I (true fat kids at heart) might be adding Naples to our Travel Wish List!

About Meg
Exhausted from traveling every week as a Business Management Consultant early in my career, I took a year off in 2012 to travel at my own pace. I am a high-energy girl that loves being active, eating food, drinking wine, and exploring the world with my partner-in-crime (and husband), Tony! I now reside in Portland, Oregon and continue to write about travel, food, wine, and the awesome adventures we have in the Pacific NW!

Glad you liked the article! Naples is worth it just for the pizza and day trips – head to Sorrento or Pompeii during the day and just eat, eat, eat in Naples!

Glad to hear it Adventurous Kate! Getting sick abroad is a big fear of ours but it’s great to hear that it didn’t stop you from kicking butt.
