An easy way to travel from Cuzco to Machu Picchu is via rail.  There are two main companies which have trains daily.  These are Peru Rail and Inca Rail.  We travelled on Peru Rail and glad we did.  Tickets start from $40 USD and upwards, depending on the availability. It’s this reason I suggest booking in advance.  We booke...

The town of Page is found in Arizona and is the closest accommodation hub for Antelope Canyon and the Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River.  As with most hotels around the Grand Canyon, it is an expensive place to visit.  You will need to book at least a few weeks in advance to secure a room.  We were lucky to score the last roo...

With Panama City being a layover in our flight plans, we needed somewhere which was close to the airport.  The Express Inn PTY Aeropuerto Internacional Panama near Tacoma Airport was our choice.  It is located only a few blocks from the airport and is a cheap option for a layover.  See how the hotel rated below.

In case you forget the name of the hotel, it actually tells you twice.  Circus Circus is a Casino resort found in the gambling capital of Las Vegas.  Movies show this city as a place where the American dream can come true – well if you win big that is.  Either way, you will need somewhere to stay and why not stay at a hotel with...

As we were transiting in Guayaquil before heading to the Galapagos Islands, we needed somewhere close to the airport.   The Hotel Air Suites provided a great base for a short stay.  It is located only a few blocks away from the terminal and cost $4 or $5 USD in a taxi.  The hotel is basicbut does have some extra's to make t...

For our 11 day road trip, we decided to rent a 2 seater Wicked Camper.

Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.  It is said you can go sailing in the morning and skiing in the afternoon.  It is a young city with most of the development growing in the last 30 years.  Saying this though, the area of Gastown has some great stories of how it was founded.  Staying in this area will ge...

I found it hard to buy the perfect camera bag.  After months of searching, I decided there is not going to be a ‘perfect’ kit bag suited to my needs.  And this is what you need to decide.  The kit bag will need to tick most of your wants in a bag.  I finally stumbled on one and purchased the Lowepro Flipside Sport...

Whitehorse is a town of roughly 27,000 people and is the capital of the Yukon Territory.  You will find the downtown area has all the modern facilities and a range of hotels to choose from.  There doesn’t seem to be any large hotel chains, which is a good thing as the money stays in the local community.  For our stay, we chose...
