This blog has a focus on Scandinavia and the Nordics as well as the Eastern Bloc. But, we have several other destinations as well!

Below, you will find the destinations we have written about on this blog and for each place, you will see travel information, planning guides, what to pack, where to stay, and much more!

Thanks so much- please reach out if you have comments or suggestions.

Africa & the Middle East


The Caucasus

One of our favorite regions is the Caucasus- partly because it is where Aram is from (Armenia) and because Megan fell in love with the region years ago and eventually moved there. You can read about the best places to visit in the Caucasus here.

Central Asia

We have spent a lot of time in Central Asia although most of our travels there have kept us in the same countries! Megan has lived in Kazakhstan and knows a lot about the country which you will find in the resources available on the site.

South & Southeast Asia

Our travels have led us into South Asia and Southeast Asia on more than one occasion and it lures us back for its flavorful and complex cuisine (and hundreds of other reasons!).

Balkans, Central Europe, Eastern Europe

The former Eastern Bloc is definitely one of our favorite places and we have written about this region in several international and known publications and have a lot right here on the blog. While we don't write as much about the Balkans as Ukraine, for example, we still frequently will post useful information on the site about the region.

The country most covered is definitely Ukraine and you can find our favorite places to visit in Ukraine here. If Belarus is more your jam, check out the best places to visit in Belarus. And, if you are moving a little north, don't forget to check out the best places to visit in Lithuania!

Western Europe

The Americas

Megan is from Virginia in the United States and has traveled North America and Central America extensively while only hitting a few places in South America thus far. We are looking to start building our North America content for our American and Canadian readers in the upcoming year to encourage travel close to home, so please be on the lookout for more to come!
