We're currently In the Pacific Northwest golfing and hiking :)


Honolulu, Hawaii

February 12th, 2019|

We "lei'd" over in Honolulu for a few days on our way to the South Pacific.   Stopping at the Pearl Harbor Museum was both emotional and educational.

Caribbean Cruise

February 8th, 2019|

We were supposed to be on this cruise with our friends from Norway, but they couldn't make it due to an injury 🙁 so we made the best of it.  We missed you Olav and [...]

Bonaire, by sea

January 25th, 2019|

The most incredible moments underwater were seeing the tiny bioluminescent ostracods and the little seahorses.  SCUBA magic!!

Bonaire, by land

January 17th, 2019|

Bonaire is a little Dutch island, near Aruba and Curaçao in the southern Caribbean.  Only 150 miles from Venezuela, there were plenty of Venezuelan immigrants here, due to their political unrest.  On this trip, we [...]

Punta del Diablo, Uruguay

January 7th, 2019|

The name Punta del Diablo, or “Devil’s Tip” -- belies the area’s relaxed, laid-back vibe. Once an old fishing village, it's now home to backpackers and surfers.  The demographics skew young here.  I found a [...]

Punta del Este, Uruguay

January 3rd, 2019|

Punta del Este is a few hours north, warmer and winder than Montevideo.  This city is all about the marina, which swells with tourists during summer in January.

New Year’s Eve in Uruguay

December 31st, 2018|

We spent our New Years Eve in the midst of a crazy crowd, soaked with cider, in Montevideo's legendary annual Cider Battle.  Everyone drinks cider, dances, and sprays each other with shook up bottles of [...]

Salt Flat Shenanigans, Argentina

December 26th, 2018|

The kindness of strangers! We knew we had a long day of driving ahead from Huacalera to Salta, Argentina. We didn't know the roads were like gravel washboards. So much shaking that our gas gauge [...]

Cafayate, Argentina

December 24th, 2018|

Working our way through Argentina's northern wine country.  This Humahuaca Gorge is a UNESCO world heritage site due to Inca history and its use as a trade route for 10,000 years.  We were here for [...]

Salta, Argentina

December 22nd, 2018|

Salta is in northern Argentina, and the closer we get to the equator, the warmer it gets.  Where American children associate a December "winter break" with snow, these kids celebrate their Christmas (in this overwhelmingly [...]

San Martin de los Andes, Argentina

December 17th, 2018|

San Martin, in northwest Patagonia, is known as the gateway for Lanín National Park, home to the Lanín volcano, which reminded us a lot of Mt. Rainier in Washington state.

Villa la Angostura, Argentina

December 15th, 2018|

Along the road to Seven Lakes, in the heart of the Lakes District, is this sleepy town with only a few thousand people.  We're definitely off the beaten path for English speaking tourists.
