The snow started to drop as soon as we pulled up to Base Camp in Bigfork, not uncommon for this time of year in the Glacier Country of Montana. The current weather didn’t matter much, as long as the ground was covered in a blanket of white we would be able to spend the afternoon dogsledding.
Just the thought of Chile makes my mouth water. I can remember noshing on fresh seafood ceviche with hints of citrus, and overdosing on empanadas de pino, heavenly pockets filled with a mixture of ground beef, onions, raisins, black olives and hard boiled eggs.
Over the past decade, Dubai has made remarkable growth and has become a benchmark for the world. The journey from being a small Bedouin village to the largest oil supplier and finally becoming the global entertainment hub of the world, Dubai has come a long way.
Traveling to Guatemala had been an unexpected experience; a blend of traditional and modern. We had dined at uber trendy restaurants, strolled though the UNESCO city of Antigua, climbed the active Pacaya volcano and went sailfishing in the Pacific. Now we would be shopping at the famous Chichi Market in the city of Chichicastenango (say that fast 3 times).
I arrived to Norway in the middle of winter, snow was on the ground and and the weather was bitter cold, with temperatures in the 20s — quite chilly for this California girl.

Travel is rejuvenating, exciting and a hell of a learning experience, if you know where to go and when! You don’t want to go to scuba-diving just to find out the beach has been cordoned off or go hiking to find your route packed with a hoard of fellow travelers.
Vintage Cars, Cigars, and Colorful architecture is what comes to the mind of most people when they think about Cuba. But there is so much more. I have been interested in visiting Cuba for several years now — and as US Cuba relations improve, I can just imagine the growth and development that will occur once things are totally normalized.
I had been in Ireland for two whole days yet still refrained from drinking the countries best selling alcoholic beverage, a pint of Guinness stout. Why? Because I had never even had a sip of the black stuff before and I wanted my first time to be at the Guinness Brewery in Dublin
Although traveling solo can be such a satisfying experience, there's nothing quite like sharing your adventure with a loved one. Along with the classic bucket list destinations, you should try and visit places that offer a bit of romance.
I had always believed that reindeer were fictional characters who pulled Santa's sleigh, delivering gifts to all the nice girls and boys. I never really gave much thought to Rudolph being based off of a real animal, one that actually roams the snow covered mountains of Northern Norway.
