Rattanakosin Story Walking Tour

To start off day 2 of our honeymoon trip (see our entire itinerary here) we scheduled the Rattanakosin Story Walking Tour with Expique. The tour began at Tha Maharaj which was on the opposite side of the city from our Airbnb. To get there, we hopped on the BTS skytrain to Saphan Taksin and then took the local ferry to Tha Chang and walked the rest of the way. Don’t stand too close to the … Read More

Bangkok Night Lights Tuk Tuk Tour

After arriving in Bangkok earlier that day, I thought the best way to get acquainted with the city would be to start with  a tuk tuk tour. I stumbled across the Bangkok night time tuk tuk tour ran by Expique and it was exactly what I was hoping for. We met our adorable guide, Nemo, at Krung Thonburi BTS station. She gave us a quick overview of what to expect on the tour, a map … Read More

The Rattanakosin Story Walking Tour

Looking back on our honeymoon trip to Asia and Oceania, I’m left with one question: “How can we quit our jobs and just travel the rest of our lives?” Well, I don’t have the answer to that, but I at least want to recap our adventure if for no other reason than to relive it once more! Planning for this trip started about a year in advance. Rather than registering for wedding gifts at various … Read More

Hiking in the Areuse Gorge

Our hike in the “Gorges de l’Areuse”  was a spur of the moment decision where we literally went from coffee and pj’s to camel backs and hiking gear in 5 minutes flat. We joined the caravan of our Leysinian friends and we were off towards Neuchâtel. We parked the car at the train station in Noiraigue located about 25 minutes from Neuchâtel  (or an hour and 40 minutes from Leysin). From Noiraigue, we followed the yellow … Read More

Lavertezzo, Switzerland

We left Leysin on Thursday morning and decided to take the scenic, longer route towards Lavertezzo stopping in Andermatt along the way for lunch. About an hour into our trip, we came across this suspension bridge in Bellwald and just had to stop… My knees may have been shaking a bit as we made our way across. And come to find out, this bridge, the Goms Bridge, was built only this past summer to connect … Read More

Where to eat in Copenhagen - Copenhagen Street Food

We were only in Copenhagen for 4 days, but boy did we have some really good food! Copenhagen is an expensive city, very comparable to Switzerland, but the quality of food for the price was much better. I only wish we had more time to do more eating! Here are a few of our suggestions on where to eat in Copenhagen: We ate here twice during our stay and we honestly could have eaten every … Read More

Guided Tours Copenhagen - Nyhavn

Whenever we visit a new city we like to begin with a walking tour if possible. It helps give us the lay of the land, the history of the area and normally the tour guides recommend a few ‘local’ spots that are worth visiting. Our walking tour with Ben and Guided Tours Copenhagen was all of these things and more. I first read about Guided Tours Copenhagen on Tripadvisor. I was very impressed with the reviews … Read More
