Travel Bug Tuesday: Galapagos Islands

EcuadorI know a handful of friends who have traveled to more places than they can count. I always turn to them for the burning question, “so where haven’t you been that you’re dying to go?” There’s always a few spots they spit out because naturally a world traveller wouldn’t have just one on their horizon, but the destination I hear them all respond with right away is the Galapagos Islands.

Travel Bug Tuesday: Croatia

Travel Bug Tuesday: CroatiaThe more I travel, the more I find myself seeking out “off the radar” destinations. There’s just something thrilling about going somewhere nobody you know has gone.

I kick myself to this day for not taking that trip especially now since its become a hot spot, and for good reason. I’m still determined to go eventually but it was no surprise when World Odyssey tapped it as one of the top ten places to visit. They shared a chic spot that I immediately bookmarked, Hotel Villa Dubrovnik. Secluded, stylish, romantic and an idyllic Croatian location right on the water. Continue reading

Travel Bug Tuesday: Peru

Travel Bug TuesdayAfter a friend came home raving about Peru I was immediately intrigued to find out more about the South American gem. Tons of hiking, shopping at local markets (Peruvian textiles? Yes please!), seeing the amazing Incan ruins, white water rafting, horseback riding, cooking classes and more are just some of the things you can experience. Naturally, World Odyssey has the perfect luxury hideaway to soak it all in. Next on the Travel Bug Tuesday hit list is Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado located right on the Urubamba River. Here’s a peek at a spot that’s perfectly situated to explore Peru, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu.
