Would you stay in a treehouse in the middle of the Amazon Jungle?

Yes! Yes! A resounding YES! I did. And it was possibly the best travel decision I have ever made. The Treehouse Lodge is an architectural wonder and a once in a lifetime experience.

Would You Pay Someone to Travel With You?

  Would you? ...Because I do. You see the relationship of travel is a delicate one. A plane that lands at the wrong airport, bumping along the open highway in a rickety bus falling into each other, finding that two beds online becomes one at the front desk, wandering lost in the dead of the night, an Airbnb gone awry, finding yourselves on the side of a dirt road...the list of travel snafus goes on. You want to be yourself. You want to be able to cry when the jet lag and lack of sleep ... continue reading...
