Do you have a smart phone? An iPhone or an Android? No matter which gadget you’re on, you can join in on the fun of the hottest photo sharing app in the market!
Instagram just released their (previously exclusive for iPhone) app for the Android phone just a few days before they were bought out by Facebook. This app is just getting bigger and bigger and more people are signing up and taking more shots… But what does this have to do with travel, you might ask…
Well, think of this scenario… You’re out with friends in your hometown and you see a beautiful sunset. You didn’t bring along your digital camera, but you have your iPhone. You take it out of your pocket, snap a shot of the sun setting behind the mountain in the distance, add a cool effect, and within seconds… millions of people can enjoy your photo and see where it was taken!
It’s an instant photo sharing app that will allow you to see the amazing things your friends are doing from all over the world. You not only indulge in unique photo ideas, but also travel inspiration!

If you know me at all then you probably know that I (Laura) have been a vegetarian my whole life. People always ask me if I have a hard time finding things to eat while traveling. While I once had to live off of corn tortillas and refried beans for a week in Guatemala, I would have to say that for the most part traveling as a vegetarian is pretty easy.Read More
Whenever we take a road trip somewhere, we ALWAYS burn CDs with mixed playlists! This is great for keeping yourself entertained on long drives and it can really set the mood for your trip. For example, on our Cali road trip, we blasted some “California Gurls” by Katy Perry and “California” by Phantom Planet! Also, when we were leaving Positano, we were very sad so we listened to “Time to Say Goodbye” by Andrea Bocelli.
Having music to listen to on your trips is great because when you are back home and you hear that song, you will think of some great memories from your trip!
Music helps us get pumped for all our trips and we strongly believe it can do that for you, too!
Below are a few songs that you might enjoy:
“Yes” by LMFAO
“Semi-Charmed Life” by Third Eye Blind
“The Underdog” by Spoon
