Hi Knowmaders! I just got back from an incredible 18-day trip to Peru. It was an absolute phenomenal adventure filled with many of the activities you, our travelers, experience as well as hotel inspections, meeting with our local team and constantly expanding my knowledge of these incredible destinations and excursions. To be honest the whole trip was a little bit of a pinch me moment and it was really difficult to choose just a few to share with you. Read on for the top six highlights from my trip to Peru.

I was delighted when Erynn at Tropic of Candycorn, a wonderful family travel blog, asked me to write a destination post. Of course, I was then faced with the hard decision of picking a place to write about. Having crisscrossed the globe in a number of ways – through study abroad programs, on a shoestring in college, and on Knowmad exploratory trips with Jordan to name a few – I felt like I was venturing into the future writing about a destination through the lens of family travel.

On winter days like today when the temperature outside is well below zero, I find myself tucked inside, sipping on a cup of coffee, and, of course, wrapped-up snug in a big, cozy scarf. A scarf isn’t just for warding off the blustery drafts at home, but also serves as the ideal travel accessory for adding variation to your outfits.
When planning a trip to the Galapagos Islands, there is a lot to take into consideration.
