Currently we travel about half the year- this frequency has definitely increased over the last couple of years, specifically after we both quit our full time jobs- before this we’d travel about two months out of the year with no trip lasting much more than three weeks at a time.
Figuring out how to use transportation in a foreign country can always seem a bit intimidating at first. When thinking of travelling by bus in Mexico and Central America, you likely picture small, packed, hot buses, with chickens running down the aisles and no AC. The ADO in Mexico is anything but that. We’ve put together this guide to the Mexican ADO bus system to help you navigate your way through Mexico in comfort.
Situated less than two hours from Cancun, Isla Holbox is a quiet, hidden gem of Mexico. Isla Holbox is specifically known for its stunning beaches where you can practically walk on the water because of its sandbars that stretch for miles. In the late summer and early fall, whale sharks migrate to nearby waters and many tours are offered.
Bocas Del Toro, Panama had been on our radar for awhile before we finally got there this year, so it always surprises us when people have never heard of it. However, we do realize it’s not particularly widely known about- so let us educate you a bit while giving you some great tips and suggestions on things to do, where to stay and what to eat in Bocas Del Toro!
Looking for where to stay in Curacao? Trying to find accomodation in any place can always be a little bit overwhelming. Especially on a large island with various regions to decide from. We stayed at quite a few hotels while on the island and have put together a list of places to stay in Curacao for any budget and style.
We recently spent a couple of weeks on the gorgeous tropical Caribbean island of Curaçao. Although we didn’t make it to all the beach clubs and beaches on the island, this is a list of where we went. Below you’ll find a roundup of our thoughts and opinions on the best beach clubs and beaches that we visited while on Curaçao! If you’re staying on the island, or just visiting for a day on a cruise, visiting the beach is definitely a great thing to do while in Curaçao!
If you’re like us, the last thing we think of when getting to a relatively remote island, far off the coast, is a water taxi. However, after researching the easiest, quickest, and least expensive way to get to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker, off the coast of Belize, we found the water taxi (ferry) was the best way. During our research we had a hard time finding out all the details about the process, length of travel, and details so here we are writing a post for you!
London can honestly be overwhelming. The moment you start to plan your visit, you realize that it’s a huge city, very spread out- and most of what you’ll want to visit is likely far apart and not necessarily walkable! To help make your decision easier, we’ve put together a list of some suggestions of things to do in London.
When you are on a long trip that includes many stops- you frequently don’t have time to do much research before arriving at the next destination. As we emerge off a train, it’s often the first time we’ve had the chance to look up the location of our hotel and how to get there. It is always a welcome surprise when the hotel happens to be within walking distance from the train station.
Wrocław, a mid-sized city in the south west region of Poland- was one of our favourite cities we visited in the country- and also one of the hardest to pronounce! Even after planning our visit, spending a few days there, filming a vlog, and constantly reminiscing about it, we still find ourselves saying it incorrectly!
In the past couple of years, since we started Delightful Travellers, we’ve had some amazing opportunities to stay at quite a few unbelievable places. However, staying at Kanonicza 22 in Kraków, Poland was definitely one of the most luxurious.
We recently travelled to Mexico with Sunwing Vacations to visit the beautiful Paradisus Playa Del Carmen. The Paradisus Playa Del Carmen is a relatively large resort, but it’s also easily walkable. It’s divided into two sections, Esmeralda, which is the family side- and La Perla, the adults only side- which is where we stayed. When you stay at La Perla you also get access to all the Esmeralda amenities.
We recently made our way from our hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia (that's in Canada for those of you not from these parts) to Portland, Maine, via The CAT Ferry. Before departing, we decided to stay for a couple of nights in Yarmouth and Acadian Shores to see what was on offer. What we discovered, definitely surprised us, and we really hope you’ll take the opportunity to check it out for yourselves.
We recently had the opportunity to spend a fun and sun filled weekend in one of our favourite provinces, Prince Edward Island, thanks to Tourism PEI, Northumberland Ferries and the Cavendish Beach Music Festival. There really is no place like PEI in the summertime, it’s all about long, sunny days, endless blue skies, and frollicking in the warm waves.
We’ve always loved to travel. However, we used to only travel once or twice a year on quick holidays. This allowed us to splurge a bit more here and there, occasionally staying in fancy hotels along the way. However, in recent years, circumstances have allowed us to start travelling more. Last year we were on the road for approximately 12 weeks.
So, if I'm going to be completely forthright, half of me is dying to write this, and the other half of me never wants to speak to anyone about it ever again. Although Holbox (prounounced "hole-bosh") is becoming more and more popular each year, it’s still a bit of a hidden gem in Mexico (and I don't entirely want to blow the whistle on it!).
We travel A LOT (shocking I know), and we now have the packing process down to a craft. We have our favourite bags that include designated pockets for just about everything. As well, after many, many trips we have tons of favourite products that make our travels easier and more efficient.
In all honesty, before we started planning our recent trip to Spain, we’d never even heard of the Costa Brava region before. In doing our research of where to visit in Spain, we came across this incredible place, and the more we read about it, the better it sounded. Turns out, it’s incredibly beautiful, magnificent and enchanting.
Our recent trip to China was fun, inspiring, and adventurous, it was truly a once in a lifetime trip that we’ll never, ever forget. China is an absolutely beautiful country, so rich in both culture and history. However, at times we also found the country to be overwhelming and difficult to navigate.
