Notes on Cox’s Bazar – the longest beach in the world

Cox’s Bazar is the pride and joy of Bangladeshis. Everywhere I went people would always say to visit their famous beach. I had already planned my Bangladesh trip to end at Cox’s Bazar, and after being in the big cities I was looking forward to filling my lungs with sea air for a few days. Even before I knew anything about Cox’s Bazar I was intrigued …

Starting 2018 with sun, sand and family

Starting 2018 with sun, sand, and family Our 2018 has started off great so far. Tomorrow we head to Mexico for our 10 year anniversary where we will renew our vows.

Flickr/Milton Correa What once was a city with just three inhabitants in 1970 (yes, three!), is now Mexico’s #2 tourist destination, second only to its capital city, as reported by the Ministry of Tourism last year. Cancun’s zero-to-sixty boom was thanks to strategic investment from the Mexican government, who recognized its potential when they spied its deserted jungles and turquoise waters in a plane survey. But the city’s enormous success has not come without challenges. In the ’90s, Cancun gained a reputation as the perfect Spring Break destination for American college students —  a…

Photos from our trip to Point Roberts in Washington State

Point Roberts, Washington A couple of weeks ago we spent a few nights in Point Roberts, a peaceful seaside village located in the Pacific Northwest that is technically a part of mainland United States, but it’s not physically connected to it (we shared a map of its peculiar location in our last post). Point Roberts is close in proximity to the skyscrapers of Vancouver but its chilled out vibe makes you feel as if you’re hundreds…

Finally: Wyndham Brings a Real All-Inclusive Deal to Puerto Rico

Wyndham Grand Rio Mar, Puerto Rico/Victor Elias Photography We know how hard it is to find an all-inclusive deal in Puerto Rico.
