Our Time In Israel


Israel proved to be one of the most interesting and rewarding stops on our round the world trip.

Even in the short time we spent there, it shifted our world view, giving us a much more informed context for understanding a country and a region that is so easily misunderstood.

It is a fascinating place, where visitors can easily immerse themselves in ancient history, religious philosophy and the roots of Western civilization.

Our report and recommendations on travel to Israel is posted here.

Our Time In India


India was crazy, chaotic, dirty, overwhelming – and simply magic.  There is no other way to describe it.

Much of what makes India special is the people.  They are warm and wonderful hosts – and they can drive you crazy.

The country may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but a visit there will be an unforgettable experience.  Guaranteed.

Our report on India and our recommendations are here.

Our Time in Peru


Machu Picchu was undoubtably the highlight of Peru for us; it’s place that has to be seen to be believed. But there is so much more to this fascinating country – it’s a place anyone could enjoy visiting.

We’ve posted our report on our time in Peru here, including some advice on an itinerary for visiting and other recommendations.
