In the Andean foothills, just above Quito, Hacienda Rumiloma is a calm oasis while still near the city, set amidst green hills, with tame llamas & horses roaming around. The huge cabins have fireplaces (or wood-burning stoves), great views of surrounding hills or the city down below, rough-hewn heavy...
YES, that is a marine iguana in the Galapagos Islands wearing a Marshawn Lynch (Beast Mode) Seattle Seahawks jersey. In the spirit of the Super Bowl and for our love for our home team we've partnered with the Ecuador Tourism Board to offer an incredible trip to the Galapagos Islands aboard one of our favorite yachts the Eric, Flamingo or Letty.

This year I had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala for a week and on a comprehensive 16 day trip to Belize, what a treat!
Every time I visit Guatemala I’m amazed by the richness of its culture. Just imagine over 21 different indigenous Mayan populations fused with Spanish and European populations. One of my favorite things is to stroll around all the different villages near the Atitlan Lake where ancient Mayan dialect is still the primary language, which is uncommon to see in larger cities throughout Central American these days. It's a chance to really learn about their way of life: weaving the most intricate huipiles, teaching their natural dyeing techniques, etc. The Mayan influence is very strong everywhere you look, I think no other country has more international identity than Guatemala. To top it all our guide was able to spot a jaguar in the jungles of Tikal,...
This October I went on a mother/daughter wine and culinary trip to the Basque Country of Spain. My mom and I had never been to Spain together and thought this trip would be perfect for us because it contained two very important things... wine and food. First off, flying is not on my list of favorite things to do. However, I do love spending time with my Mom and drinking wine. So, I jumped on an airplane for what I knew would be a trip filled with new and wonderful experiences.
Since this was a wine and culinary tour there wasn’t the rush of adventure as in zip lining or wildlife safari’s - the adventure for me was seeing a new place with my mom, trying new foods and seeing the wine making process. My favorite thing that we did was in San Sebastián; a really fun cooking class where...
Beginning with a trip to visit family and friends in Stockholm, Berlin and Bulgaria, 2014 commenced with a festive bang! This was just the warm up though, for what was yet to come. In August, I set out to Peru for four weeks of exploring the contrasting, ancient-modern urban centers, trekking the Inca Trail, piranha fishing and swimming in the Amazon, boating on Lake Titicaca, and eating the best ceviche of my life in a quiet fishing village on the sea. All the while surrounded by warm, inviting and inspiring people. After having lived between Seattle and Argentina for almost nine years, Peru was an exciting window to another invigorating facet of Latin America’s rich diversity.
Peru is a land of contrast as much geographically, as it is culturally, architecturally, visually, and gastronomically. In the west, the coast is dry, tracing its way north and south along the Pacific. To...
