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....

Torres del Paine was so spectacular we decided to get engaged!
With Valentine's day just around the corner- let this couple inspire you for your next romantic adventure! This active couple did a custom Patagonia Adventure this past November and ended up getting engaged in Torres del Paine!

Mountains, Roses and Champagne: 30th Anniversary in Chile

Mountains, Roses and Champagne: 30th Anniversary in Chile
Alumni travelers, Jim and Laurie celebrated their 30th anniversary by doing a custom 8-day trip to Chile. Beginning in Santiago, they then flew down to Torres del Paine and stayed at the romatnic  Patagonia Camp while hiking amongst the iconic peaks of this national park and ended at the luxurious Singular Hotel outside of Puerto Natales.   “ The Singular Hotel is a fantastic place- we have never stayed in a museum before and it is certainly a combination of a historic building with wonderfully preserved machinery and a very nice modern contemporary hotel. Our stay at Patagonia Camp was wonderful- although one night the winds were so strong we thought we might awake in Kansas. People at Patagonia Camp for the 5 days before our arrival never saw the mountains and we were afraid of the same fate since the forecast was very bad. The first day (Tuesday) was 100...

Our 27 Years of Rumba Around The World

Our 27 Years of Rumba Around The World
Valentine's Day is our wedding anniversary, so here's a little homage to Anne.     I met Anne at a Bochinche salsa concert at Seattle's annual Bumbershoot music festival. And do you know the first word out of her mouth that she said to me, "No." And the next five words were, "I said, no, didn't I?" (I won't repeat my lame pickup line.) Then on our first date, a picnic in a local park, I forgot my wallet when we were buying some deli items so she had to write a check. In spite of myself, 27 years of rumba around the world since then has spun many tales of romance, adventure, and an ever growing family here in Seattle and in so many friends and families in communities and homes the world over.     In those days when we were just starting out I planned an adventure honeymoon...
