Chicago Travel Guide
Chicago is an iconic American city; I don’t need to tell you that. But as I discovered during my first trip to the Windy City, there’s a lot more to Chicago than its famous landmarks and deep dish pizza.
I spent 3 days eating, drinking, and biking my way through the city with the help of my friend (and Chicago native) Kevin. Based on that experience, I’ve put together the following list of my favorite places to eat, drink, and see in this fantastic lakeside city.
Georgia Travel Guide
If you thought this would be a guide to the U.S. state of Georgia, then think again. This is a guide to the country of Georgia, which is located northeast of Turkey and south of Russia. If you know nothing about it, then you’re in the same boat we were before we visited.
But let me tell you: Georgia is a fantastic place to visit. Between the friendly people, beautiful scenery, delicious wine, and rich history, Georgia has something for everyone. Read on to learn about our favorite places to eat, drink, see, and stay in Georgia.
Note: We’ve organized this guide according to the different regions we visited during our trip.
Paros Travel Guide
Paros was one of the two islands we visited during our trip to Greece, and we highly recommend it if you’re looking for a place to relax.
We loved how much there was to do on Santorini (the other Greek island we visited), but we also enjoyed getting a break from the hustle and bustle on calmer, less touristy Paros.
Below, you’ll find our favorite places to stay, eat, and see on the island of Paros, Greece.
Santorini Travel Guide
With its whitewashed buildings, stunning cliff views, and beautiful beaches, Santorini is the quintessential Greek island destination. We spent several days there during our trip to Greece, and we highly recommend it.
Below, you’ll find our favorite places to eat, drink, and see in Santorini, as well as some of the best areas to stay.
Ireland Travel Guide
Ireland is one of those places that we’d always wanted to visit, but never had…until recently. Now that we’ve been to Ireland, we can enthusiastically recommend it.
To help you plan your Ireland trip, we’ve put together this list of our favorite places to eat, drink, and do in the Emerald Isle.
Barcelona Travel Guide
Often overshadowed by the larger and more touristy Madrid, Barcelona is a fantastic city in its own right and should absolutely be part of any trip to Spain.
If you’re planning a trip to Barcelona, you may be overwhelmed by all the city has to offer. To help you find your way, we’ve put together this guide to our favorite places to eat, drink, and see in Barcelona.

Asheville Travel Guide
So many people had recommended we visit Asheville that we were concerned it might be overhyped. That was far from the case, however, as we discovered on our two visits two the city.
Whether you like craft beer, local arts, Southern cuisine, or outdoor activities, Asheville has something for you. Read on to learn about our favorite places to eat, drink, and see in this North Carolina mountain town.

Portland Travel Guide
We’ve been to pretty much every major city in the U.S., and Portland remains one of our favorites (if not our absolute favorite). We’ve been many times over the years, so much so that we’ve recorded multiple podcast episodes featuring the city.
If you’re going to Portland for the first time (or returning, we can’t blame you), this guide will take you through some of our current favorite places to eat, drink, and see. This guide also incorporates lots of recommendations from Portland local (and our good friend) Sean Ogle.

Nestled amongst better-known countries such as Italy, Austria, Croatia, and Hungary, Slovenia is a place you may not know much about.

Austin Travel Guide
We’ve been traveling to Austin for several years now, and in that time we’ve seen the city change for the better. It’s now one of our favorite spots to visit (particularly to escape the frigid Philly winters).
