    Three days in London

    About a month ago we went to London for a weekend. And because we like to keep ourselves busy, we came up with an insane plane for the three days there. We brought our aunt, who has never been there, so naturally, we had to plan on doing all sorts of touristy things that we haven’t done in years. This was actually quite amazing because we haven’t seen some of these places in forever since we’ve avoided these “tourist traps”.   We flew in early Saturday morning, which meant the whole day was free and we took complete advantage of it. After taking the bus from Stansted airport to Victoria…

    A week in Avoriaz

    With so many places to discover, it’s always tempting to go somewhere new and spend a vacation exploring unknown locations. This winter, though, we both felt the need to relax and take a break, so we returned to Avoriaz, the same place we went to last winter. Last year we were here during the first week of January and had no snow. This year, we went during the last week of March and it couldn’t be more different. There was about a meter and a half of snow on the ground when we got here, which meant that what used to be the ground floor was now below street level…

    Tokyo adventures: Disneyland

    While we were in Tokyo, we couldn’t resist spending a day at Tokyo Disneyland. We just can’t resist a good theme park. Our bodies had given up on any sense of time, so waking up early to make our way through Tokyo rush hour traffic (wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy) and make it to Disney for opening time. Getting there: The trip there is easy – we took the Keiyo line from Tokyo station to the Maihama stop. You can see the part from the train and it’s a quick 10 minute walk from the station. We didn’t have our tickets ahead of time, so we first had…

    Travel Tips: Japan

    This October, we were lucky enough to go to Japan again. And this time, we went together. So, we’ve compiled a list of tips for you, if you’re planning a trip to Japan. Always have cash on you. Foreign currency ATMs are hard to come by and you’re never sure a vendor will accept your debit card. Download Google Translate (and Japanese) before you go. It’ll be a lifesaver. If your hotel or Airbnb offer pocket wifi, go for it! And bring an external battery to recharge. Wifi hotspots are almost as hard to find as foreign currency ATMs. Get a JR pass. They’re flexible and will let you take…
