In June, Jon and I took off for London to experience as much of the city as we could in about eight days. That seems like a long time to be in a city, right? But there was so much to do, that we still had things on our list [...]

When traveling, I have often found that places and objects of spiritual reverence are some of the most impressive. From cathedrals to temples, I love them all – but I have a special place in my heart for the giant buddhas. If you’ve never gazed up at an outsized buddha, [...]

Seafair Weekend, Seattle’s summer festival, when traffic snarls because everyone’s eyes are focused skyward on the Blue Angels, and hydroplanes roar across Lake Washington. Parties are everywhere, by land and by sea: neighborhood block parties and boats laden with bikini-clad babes. Seafair has been an annual event in Seattle since 1950, [...]

When it comes to down to travel gear, selecting the proper bag for the proper occasion can be an arduous task. For example, you might not necessarily want to use a boarding bag in lieu of a day pack—it just wouldn’t be ideal. With such a wide selection of bag [...]

I have to be honest, when I was younger, my Mom used to offer up Spanish rice as a side-dish, and I wouldn’t touch it. There was something too mysterious (and tomato-y) about it for my young and finickymind. I avoided it for years, I wouldn’t eat it at restaurants, [...]

I’m back in Montana for a few days before leaving for New York, and I was fortunate enough to have my boyfriend come and visit me for a little bit over my birthday. To say that there’s a slight difference between Montana and New York is more than obvious, and [...]

Made famous by the movie, “Endless Summer II”, Tamarindo Costa Rica is a mecca for surfers big and small, newbies and pros. They are, however, not the only people who live or frequent this coastal hamlet. What is left out of detailed descriptions of this lively beach town are the affluent [...]

I wasn’t sure I wanted to read Go Set a Watchman. Any book that is published after the author is reportedly too ill and senile to participate in theprocess is highly suspect at best. Given that it was “discovered” (from where Lee had purposely hidden it from us) only after [...]

The crowded alleysbehind Hanoi’s massive Dong Xuan market are a labyrinthofstreet stalls, tiny shops, and tinier walkways. Throngs of shoppers jostle salesmen, tourists, and the occasional daring motorcycle as itweaves in and out of the masses. In the dizzying heat of the early afternoon sun, two women sit curbside, a [...]

I think by now here at WanderChicwe’ve established that Mountain Khakis is a pretty sweet brand making adorable clothes—built to last—at an affordable price, so it’s no mystery why I was excited to try out a couple pieces from their newest line: the Island short and Sunnyside tunic. I’m having [...]

I’ve been to Québec City three times in the past nine months! The only season I have yet to experience is Spring. Although the city feels more traditional than Montréal, there are inspiring, visionary meals happening just as well. Legende offers a hyper local menu, only serving items that are in season. [...]

Ask anybody about top things to do in Acadia National Park, and invariably they will mention sunrise on Cadillac Mountain as a must-do.

Nothing makes me think of summer more than family gatherings, fireworks on the lake, and bonfires. The Fourth of July has always consisted of at least one (if not all) of those three things. It was weird this year to be spending it in Denver so far from home. A [...]

Those three islands tucked into the bottom right corner of the map are so small, and so distant from other landmasses, most people forget their location. Yet New Zealand’s remote position offers travelers a unique opportunity for employment. And – as several of this year’s best bloggers about working holiday [...]
