Would you do this? Flying over the Pyrenees in a Hot Air Ballon

The Region of Garrotxa is known for its many volcanoes and we get a birds eye view of the mountain range and the beautiful landscape. We fly high in the air reaching a height of more than 3000 metres above sea level. We actually felt our ears popping as we gained altitude! Whew!

How to Get Paid to Travel the World

Recently we have received a lot of emails from people wondering how to get paid to travel. Since we’ve been spending our time answering these emails, we thought it would be better for us to write a post about it.
First of all, let me warn you that the first couple of years of your travel career are going to be difficult...

Common Travel Scams to Watch For Around the World

Nothing ruins a vacation more than being scammed. Take it from us, my husband Dave and I been on the road for six solid years.
We’ve been on every continent and witnessed all the different ways that thieves take weary tourists by surprise.
Having been the target of a few well-planned travel scams ourselves, we know what it feels like to realize that you have just fallen victim to one of the oldest cons in the book.

18 photos that will convince you to go Cycle Touring in Girona

Girona has the best cycling in the world. Don’t believe me? Just ask the experts. 
At any given time, 50 professional racers are training in Girona. And when we say professional, we mean the cream of the crop. Girona has been dubbed, The Best Training destination for cyclists in Europe and cycling champions agree! 
If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us, so we went cycling touring with BikeCat to see what all the excitement was about. It definitely lived up to the hype and now we’re even bigger fans of the sport than we were before probably because we met and saw so many amazing cyclists...

Tokyo on a budget – How to Travel Without Breaking the Bank

Great guest post from A Girl who Travels.  
Just like a lot of great things in life, visiting Tokyo comes, quite literally, at a price – for many years now, the city’s been considered one of the world’s most expensive capitals, a major put-off for budget-conscious travellers.
That being said, while the Japanese capital most certainly isn’t cheap, its costs are often exaggerated. In fact, I find them comparable to those of Paris or London and it is possible to travel Tokyo on a Budget.

Vacation like Hollywood Royalty in Costa Brava, Spain.

 We were already staying in a luxury Spanish Villa near the town of Pallafrugel, Costa Brava when owner Richard asked us if we wanted to check out a new property he had just acquired in the Coastal village of Cap Sa Sal.
Richard owns and operates one of the most popular vacation apartment rental companies in Costa Brava and his properties are to die for.
Never ones to turn down and opportunity to stay somewhere new, we packed our bags and drove up the coast to a seaside location just outside the town of Begur.

Antarctica Wildlife in Photos

When picturing Antarctica the first things that come to mind are pretty little penguins.
Yes, when visiting the seventh continent, you will see many penguins. Antarctica is filled with the darling tuxedo-clad creatures, and they are as adorable in person as they are in cartoons.
Antarctica also is home to thousands of other creatures; nowhere on earth will you be able to get so close to magnificent animals that are as curious about you as you are of them.

Ignite your Wanderlust with Photos of the Bolivian Salt Flats

Love this guest post from +Bobaroundtheworld Travelblog 
“You will love it!”  were the words we had heard from other travelers every time we mentioned our plan to travel to Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni; the biggest salt flat in the world.
As you might imagine those words raised our expectations sky-high and we couldn’t wait to see the white endless scenery of the famous Bolivian Salt Flats.
