Glenapp Castle

McCabe David / February 24, 2021

Staying in a castle has long been etched onto my travel bucket list.

With over 2000 castles in Scotland, it seemed like the perfect place to make my dream to stay in a castle come true! When we started planning our road trip to Scotland, I also...

There is much to consider before setting off to travel New Zealand by campervan, however. The locals (known as kiwis), hospitable as they are, have grown quite tired of gap-year students treating their home like a hotel with maid service. Excessive litter, overflowing toilets, and inundated parking lots...

Kalepa Ridge Trail

McCabe David / February 23, 2021

The Kalepa Ridge Trail is one of few semi-secret, hidden gems of Kauai. This short but steep hike reveals unbeatable views of the Kalalau Valley and the jagged, dramatic cliffs of the Na Pali Coast. For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as the Napali Coast Lookout. In our opinion, the views from this trail are the best available for seeing and photographing the Na Pali cliffs by...

Looking for the best things to do in Salem, Massachusetts? Salem is a must-visit destination during fall in Massachusetts.

Vang Vieng Photos

McCabe David / February 26, 2021

Vang Vieng is a small town in Northern Laos, located between Luang Prabang and Vientiane. Sitting along the Nam Song River with dramatic limestone mountain scenery as its backdrop, Vang Vieng is absolutely breathtaking. The best location for that perfect Vang Vieng photo is undoubtedly the Nam Xay Viewpoint just across the wooden bridge from the “city centre.” In fact, this may be the most Instagrammable location in all of Laos (apologies to Kuang Si Falls). The entrance to the Nam Xay Viewpoint is about 15 minutes out of Vang Vieng by car or scooter, so you will need to arrange...
