Kaleici and the Harbor

We have already seen some of Kaleici since it’s close to hour hotel, but today we went out with the full intention of exploring every bit of Antalya’s Old Town. If your hostel or hotel is near the tram, we found that this is the easiest way to get to…

Karain Cave | Antalya

On the same day we visited Termessos, we also decided to check out Karain Cave. It’s the perfect side trip if you’re already going to be visiting Termessos because it’s only 20 minutes away. There are over 400 steps up to the cave but they’re pretty shallow so it wasn’t…

A Day Trip to Termessos

Today we set out for Termessos, the ruins of an ancient city which sits over 3,000 feet up Solymos mountain. You can get here pretty easily with public transportation but we still had our rental car and it was quicker and easier for us to drive. If you decide to take…

Kursunlu Waterfalls and Perge

Kursunlu Waterfalls We’ve been having a hard time waking up because of the time change, but this morning we made it a point to get out early. When researching public transportation in Antalya, I found a few websites with instructions to Kursunlu Waterfalls, but they were pretty dated.  Since we…

Catching Up on Antalya

I arrived in Antalya three nights ago, but my bag did not. So while Nick has been working, I’m trying to figure out how to make my casual plane clothes work for a multitude of occasions. Nick played his first concert in Antalya last night. The show went great but apparently there were a lot…

Altitude Sickness in Cusco

On our last full day in Peru, I woke up in Cusco feeling like there was a stack of bricks on my chest. We experienced a bit of altitude sickness in Cusco when we were here a few days ago, but this morning was more intense. Erica and I were both…

Hiking Machu Picchu

I woke up extra early this morning because I was dying to see what it looked like outside. I also wanted to take advantage of our amazing hotel room overlooking this incredible view. I’m going to admit, I didn’t know much about Machu Picchu before today. Of course I’d seen the infamous…

The Sacred Valley: Ollantaytambo

After we finished in Pisac, we drove another hour to Ollantaytambo and visited this town’s archaeological site. When we were pulling into Ollantaytambo, I fell in love with the village. It feels as if you’ve gone back into time when you walk through the streets here. This is where the tour ended for…

The Sacred Valley: Pisac

The continuation of our tour started at 8:30 this morning. We packed a small bag for Machu Picchu and stored our luggage in the hostel. On the way to Ollantaytambo, we stopped about an hour outside of Cusco, in the village of Pisac. The drive there was breathtaking. When we arrived at the…

Touring Cusco

After a short delay due to poor weather, Erica and I finally landed in Cusco! Leaving the airport, we were approached by tons of taxis begging to take us into town. Of course, offering ridiculous rates.  We finally found someone that would take us to the city center for 20 soles but it…
