The Alhambra in Photos

If there was an award for one of the most beautiful places in Spain, the Alhambra in Granada would probably take home the gold.

Planning and executing the perfect trip with Trover

So I have been back in Spain for 2 weeks now, and it’s basically like I never left. How how does that even work? I think it’s weird, really weird. All the old familiar words in Spanish have come back to me, the sounds, the daily routine, even the smells of Spain have triggered a […]

Soar with me to Milford Sound

I am struggling to find the words to tell the amazing story of getting to fly to Milford Sound. As my friends and family will attest to, it’s not often that I find myself at a loss for words. If there is one place in all of New Zealand that continues to leave me speechless, no […]
