Bus Ride Through the Andes: Santiago to Mendoza

Taking the bus from Santiago, Chile, to Mendoza, Argentina, turned out to be one of the most memorable parts of our trip and made for a day of sites that were postcard-worthy. It’s always fun to try new ways to get around – I’m so glad we chose the bus route rather than just taking a short flight because we were able to see more of the countryside and an up-close view of the Andes as we drove right over them.

I was (secretly) dreading our day-long bus trip. What if it snowed and we couldn’t cross? And, more importantly, what if the roads were so bumpy and curvy that even I got car sick… and then had to stay on the bus for 5 more hours? [...]

Bangkok Airways Flight # PG 710 Mandalay-MDL to Bangkok-BKK

Bangkok Airways Flight # PG 710 Mandalay-MDL to Bangkok-BKK Dept: 2:15 pm Arr: 4:40 pm Duration: 1 hr 55 min Airbus A320

Having just landed from our connecting flight from Heho-HEH into Mandalay-MDL, we made our way to baggage claim which had a ton of carousels but was deserted for us.

After grabbing our bags (from a domestic flight), we had to send everything through another security check… Mandalay airport is a bit bizarre in that you’ll have to send your bags through no less than 4 security checks when connecting domestically: one in Heho to pass through security, one when we landed in Mandalay (this is the most unnecessary seeming), one to get [...]

Sanur Executive Lounge Review Denpasar-DPS Domestic Terminal – Bali, Indonesia

After an amazing 5 days around Bali (visiting Seminyak, Kuta and Ubud), it was time to head to our next destination: Jakarta, Indonesia. After leaving the Villa Semana in Ubud, we went to the Domestic Terminal at Ngurah Rai International Airport -- 22 miles and a little over one hour's drive away.

How to: Booking a Bus Ticket from Santiago to Mendoza

When we were planning our trip to South America, we had settled on going to Santiago, Mendoza and Buenos Aires but had to sort out how to get from A --> B --> C. After reading a few trip reports and seeing a few photo galleries from the bus ride over the Andes, our mind was made up.

Bike Tour of Ubud – Bali, Indonesia

 

 

We knew before we ever left the US that we wanted to do a bike tour of Ubud. I’d done a bike tour of Tuscany when I studied abroad and it was one of my favorite memories from my time, so I was really looking forward to learning more about the area in Ubud with a long bike tour. Plus, what’s more romantic than a bike ride through the rice paddies on your honeymoon? Many tours were advertised for appx $30, leaving at 7 or 8am and returning by 2pm, so we knew it wouldn’t be hard to do once we arrived.

As luck would have it, we were chatting with the Swiss owner of our hotel (Villa Semana) upon arrival and he very kindly [...]

Villa Semana Resort & Spa Review – Ubud, Bali

After leaving the bustling Seminyak area, we headed by shuttle car to Ubud, in central Bali -- about 1 hour and 20 minutes away. No sign tells you you're in Ubud, you just sort of... arrive. Nothing changes between the countryside and the city- just sparse bits of human life followed by trees and vacant land. Finally, we turned down a little lane and came up to our picturesque hotel - it couldn't have been a sweeter hotel.

Bali Day Trip: Tanah Lot/Taman Ayun

We were having the best time just hanging around our hotel (W Retreat & Spa Bali) during the first part of our honeymoon, but finally felt like we should venture out and explore more of the island. After speaking with the hotel concierge about how to best leave the property and see some cool sights in the area, we settled on hiring a car and driver by the hour. The W had a few prescribed routes for sightseeing, but the beauty of being able to rent a car + driver is that you can easily custom tailor it to what makes sense for you.

We weighed our options and ultimately decided to leave in the morning to visit the temples Tanah Lot and then Taman Ayun –with a few more [...]
