How to be a Romantic Traveler

How to be a Romantic Traveler
I am a hopeless romantic. After all, I have the whole, wild beautiful world as my stage to share my love with Anne. Together through our own 30-year traveling romance we've danced around the world sharing our adventures as newlyweds on honeymoon in Costa Rica, leading family adventures raising our son, and now as empty-nesters and grandparents. I have some sage advice on love and adventure, whether you're looking to propose, keeping your love alive as parents traveling together with the kids, or if you are empty nesters looking for renewed romance. Here are my top 9 romantic travel tips (with a special bonus at the end) for romancing on your next adventure. 1. Be out in nature together. On our honeymoon in Costa Rica I took Anne to a special place where I could kiss her under a waterfall cascading out of the rainforest onto a pristine tropical beach. Unforgettable....

10 Places to Step Off the Beaten Path in SE Asia

10 Places to Step Off the Beaten Path in SE Asia
We love finding wild corners of the world. We also know that traveling to a new country often means you want to see the iconic sites - more often than not they're must-see destinations for a reason! So, here's a list of places that you can include in your next adventure to Southeast Asia that are just a hop, skip, and a jump off the main path. You can have the best of both worlds - visit the iconic sites and then take a detour to see parts of the world others have yet to discover.  1. Hsipaw, Myanmar: Myanmar is just opening up to the world and visitors have been busy stamping out a well-trod tourist path. Hsipaw, located in the northeast of Myanmar, lies close enough to Mandalay to be accessible but just far enough away to deter any but the intrepid traveler. This delightful city combines intriguing history (it was once a...

Best Meal Ever on the Wine Tour in Mendoza!
Julie and Craig came to us last year wanting to retrace the steps of some of their close friends who had traveled to Argentina with Wildland Adventures the previous year. They had a bit more time than their friends so, not only were they able to soak up the culture in Buenos Aires, drink wine and explore the vineyards in Mendoza and enjoy the estancia life in El Calafate, but, they also got to add on almost an entire week in Torres del Paine filled with epic treks and scenic vistas! Julie enthusiastically shares some of their personal highlights from the trip below: “We had an awesome trip! Having the tour guides meet us and the transfers was so great- the guide in Buenos Aires (Andrea) and the one in El Calafate were really great; smart, friendly, interesting, informed. In Mendoza, we had 3 different gals. We really loved Mariella who...

Both of the Singular Santiago and Singular Patagonia hotels were very nice and the ground arrangements worked very well.

The Singular Patagonia is...
