FiveBadTourists: Time to Machu The Picchu!
From Cusco it was time for the FiveBadTourists to make the journey to see the infamous Machu Picchu. Getting there could have been a simple matter of taking the train from Poroy station just outside of Cusco all the way to Machu Picchu. Unfortunately the only trains times were in the morning and we had just finished celebrating New Year’s Eve the night before. So early train rides were not an option!
A Mother Reclaims Her Travel Spirit
This is a post from Tasia Grzecka – wife, mother of three, licensing specialist for adoption and foster care, fellow blogger and my older sister. (Yes – you’ve already been graced with my twin sister’s post and now you get another!) She also just so happens to be the one who sparked my interest in travel at a young age. As she traipsed across Thailand, Loas, Nepal, American Samoa and Honduras (places we’ve yet to visit aside from our time in Bangkok!) before starting a family, she opened my eyes to the world outside my own – and for that I am forever grateful.
First Time Traveler Heads To Peru
This is a post from Megan Brown, David’s former womb-mate (twin) and a graphic designer/new travel addict/ fellow wine-lover living in Chicago. She’s the witty mind behind TheCardAisle.com where you can find the funniest most creativist greeting cards ever. She also designed our super cool TBT logo that’s practically the best part of our blog. You can see more of her work on her portfolio website.
City Girl, Meet the World
Though I’ve been out of the country before, I guess I don’t really count driving across the border into Mexico with my girlfriends in a periwinkle-colored minivan as a true international adventure. The trip to South America was my first big, real, super-awesome, international trip. As most people say, it’s interesting to see how you react to new things when you are far from your comfort zone.
