Hi There!

We're Markie and Chloe, and we are traveling the world... ok, maybe not the whole world, but that would be dope! Follow us along our journey through Europe, Souteast Asia, and wherever else we end up!

Cheers!

On our first full day in Rome, we discovered that we had a chance to see the Pope. Typically our first day is spent researching the area we are staying in and planning what we have to do. Which means reading other blog posts, articles, and looking...

Visiting the Vatican City is a must for all visitors to Rome - but it can be daunting. And full of people. And hot. And full of people trying to sell you stuff. So come prepared with what you want to do - and know how to...

Experiencing other parts of the world = eating all of the food. Food is a huge part of every culture, including how and when you eat it. To us, it is important to find the least 'touristy' spot and do as the locals do. How To...

This is a question we ask ourselves frequently. It always depends on the city and what our plans are, as well as how long we are staying. Airbnb or hostel? Not all travelers on a budget have the luxury of considering these two options, especially if you...

If you read in our last post, we described how we decide where to stay in a city. We're kind of particular, and know what we want and what we don't want. With that being said, we don't get it right every time, but we...

It might take a little bit to get an grasp of exactly what you are looking for, or better yet, what you enjoy, but once you do the perfect place can make or break your love for a city. How do you know where to stay? Quick...

Hungry in Lisbon? Have no fear, for the city is full of delicious food in every corner. Want some more advice on how to pick the best place to eat? Visit our blog post here. Food in Lisbon you must try: Here are a few of the...

During our stay in Berlin, everyone asked us where we were headed next. After we told them Prague, all of their responses were always the same -'Prague is so fun!' and 'You're going to drink a lot!' And they were right...

Everyone keeps referring to Berlin as the cool, young city of Western Europe. And after hearing that, we obviously decided to head to Berlin to get a taste of the city, since it had our names written all over it. Because we are cool and young....

Multiple blog posts urged Chloe and I to buy our tickets online before visiting the Eiffel Tower as it would save us time. But lo and behold, all ticket spots were sold out while we were in Paris. Is there a theme for our trip? Since the...

I'm not sure about you guys, but every picture I've ever seen of Amsterdam has the canals in it. The truth? Real life Amsterdam is even more picturesque than you would ever dream of. We decided to go on a canal cruise after watching a few...

Looking for some recommendations in Amsterdam? Look no further, for here are some of our favorites during our short jaunt to the city. Red Light Secrets: Museum of Prostitution: It's very interesting and is located right in the middle of the Red Light District. The...

Oh, Amsterdam. We already miss you and dream of you, and are planning our next trip to see you again. We only had a few things on our 'to do' list while visiting, and that included a trip to the Anne Frank House. However, we didn't do...

Alright, y'all - we spent about a week in Ireland, experiencing the beautiful country and seeing as much as we could. Here is our schedule, and a few tips with what we did along the way. Newcastle County Down: 3 nights Newcastle is a little seaside town...

After a wonderful night of sleep, Chloë and I went for a run to explore the back roads near Borgarnes. When we got back to our place (which was our favorite Airbnb in Iceland), Sadie had woken up and was ready to give us another...

Packing is a nightmare… especially when you’re trying to pack light, and make it all fit in one backpack. We talked to a lot of people, and had been planning what to take for weeks, but when it came time to do it we were...

As with all stages of our lives, we finish one chapter and begin the next. And as we write our story there are introductions, climaxes, and of course endings, but we’re never truly done until we’re literally laid to rest… I mean, come on, it’s...

It’s daunting to begin to save. Period. It’s hard to set a budget, especially if you aren’t budget savvy (like me) and enjoy getting coffees from your favorite coffee place everyday (like me). It can be hard to pick where to start, but about a...
