24 Hour Guide to the Charming Island of Korčula | Croatia

A medieval island surrounded by turquoise waters and the birthplace of one of the most famous explorers in world history, the island of Korčula (pronounced core-chula) makes for a relaxed, yet fulfilling day in the Adriatic. With no real “sights” to see, a day in Korčula is best spent exploring the bougainvillea covered narrow cobblestone streets of old town, stopping into the occasional shop, enjoying a leisurely lunch seaside, and then sunbathing on the rocks below. A visit to the Marco Polo house provides a nice lookout tower to view the town from above, and just enough history about this 13th century explorer. The pace here fit our vacation vibe perfectly.

A San Franciscan's Guide to Carmel

Only two hours from San Francisco, but seemingly worlds away, the charming little town of Carmel almost transports you to another country or another time with it’s signature fairytale cottage architecture and location just steps from the Pacific ocean. As I walked through town, exploring courtyard after courtyard plush with potted annuals and window boxes pregnant with greenery, the sidewalks buckled beneath my feet, tree roots slowly disrupting the bricks yet adding to the coziness of this small town. I breathed in the smell of pine and eucalyptus mixed with a wisp of sea breeze, and exhaled the stress of city life that I left behind for the weekend.

Pictures from Oz | Tasmania

When our friends Timon and Yana quit their jobs to start traveling the world three years ago, we had no idea how long their travels would last, or where their adventures would take them. They’ve always been avid hikers, planning ambitious 30 or 40 mile backpacking trips seemingly every weekend. Boldness and sheer determination are two of the characteristics that come to mine when thinking about what traits define them as individuals, and a couple. They’re love of the wilderness continues into their travels today, where they visit some of the most remote destinations in the world, trekking to capture breathtaking vistas, surrounded by nothing but Mother Earth. One of those destinations was Tasmania, and the images they captured are stunning.
