Our First Week Highlights (Featuring Mike and Laura)

Before we arrived in Taipei, our dear Denver-ite friends, Mike and Laura, had already checked into our shared Airbnb and scoped out the scene. They had been traveling through Japan and Hong Kong for a few weeks prior (their post coming soon!) and decided to make a pit stop in Taipei so say ‘whatsapp’ to us. It was incredibly comforting to have our Denver friends … Continue reading Our First Week Highlights (Featuring Mike and Laura)

Should you rent a car in Spain?

As Caryn and I were planning our trip to Europe, we wanted to cover the most amount of ground at the lowest cost.

Plus, the cost would have been upwards of $350+ per person for our 10 days of travel. So instead we decided to research the ultimate transportation question: should we rent a car in Spain?
