Best Of The Rest – The Weekly Roundup

by Meg · 2 comments

Tony and I are currently at our very first travel bloggers conference, Travel Bloggers Unite in Umbria, Italy.  We are so excited going into the conference to meet fellow travelers and learn from industry experts on how to better our blog and our overall RTW experience.

Wish us luck as we network the heck out of this event!

And, in the meantime, enjoy our favorite travel articles from this week. Here are the Best Of The Rest:

  • Even with spending three months in South America, there is still so much Tony and I want to see on this beautiful continent.  Visiting Columbia and Brazil are at the top of our list for when we someday return.  After reading Andi’s article of Pousada Maravilha on the island of Fernando de Noronha, there is no doubt in my mind where I want to stay while in Brazil!
  • Tony and I just attended a food tour in Paris and had a wonderful time exploring French cuisine at its best.  If I had to think of any other city at the top of my list to do a food tour, it would have to be ROME baby!  I am incredibly jealous of Canada’s Adventure Couple for their recent food tour in Rome and have added this activity to the top of my RTW bucket list. Lucky for us, we will be in Italy next week… When in Rome, right?
  • To close out our South American jaunt of our RTW trip, Tony and I flew out of Lima, Peru to get to Europe.  We arrived into the city a few days before our April 6th flight to Paris and had zero expectations going into Lima.  We looked at Lima as the city that would get us from Point A to Point B.  However, we were pleasantly surprised to discover how wonderful this city truly is.  With great weather, beautiful seaside towns, and FABULOUS Peruvian food, Lima quickly climbed up the ladder as one of our most favorite cities in South America.  I am glad to see that A Lady in London had an equally good experience while in Lima.
  • One of the very few downsides to travelling the world is the inevitable jet lag that comes along with long flights.  I think Tony is just now recovering from his epic jet leg from this past week’s flight from Lima to Paris… Having said this, I think he would greatly appreciate reading Diana’s entertaining tale on her experience with this traveler’s disease.  What’s YOUR jet lag story?
  • My parents are moving to Kauai in December, where Tony and I will be ending our RTW journey.  I have been lucky enough to travel to Hawaii several times, but this will be Tony’s first trip.  As such, I will have to leverage Megan’s Hawaii for the Newby Islander  guide to ensure Tony gets the proper island experience!

About Meg

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!

I’ve been to Oahu and Mauai – both nice – but nothing surpasses the spectacular natural beauty of Kauai, the oldest island in Hawaii’s chain. Check out the many travel sites. Here’s a quick read: http://adventureinhawaii.com/kauai.htm

I love your travel blog. I need another life to fit in all of the things that you and your travel peers recommend. Keep the news coming!

This is a great article Barb. Kauai is such a stunning island and I cannot wait to take Tony there. I will have to pick through this link you sent us to get some great ideas on what we can do and see when we arrive on the island this winter. Thank you so much for the continued support!
