Of the places we've traveled, we've had more requests for tips and advice on Morocco than any other place. I think this may be in part because Morocco is one of the more difficult locations to travel—the best places to see are quite spread out from each other and getti...

This is us killing it as parents on the rooftop of our riad in Fez, Morocco.

We're not pros at traveling with kids by any stretch of the imagination (see above), but we've learned a couple things along the way. We get lots of questions on this topic because honestly, if...

We love Geneva. If it's any indication of how much we love it, we named our firstborn child, Genève, after it. Zach lived in Geneva for all of junior high and has so many great memories there that I had to see the city for myself. When he took me after we were married,...

One of our favorite travel experiences we've had yet is biking around Lake Geneva. The "tour du Lac Leman velo" is a cycling route that guides you around Lake Geneva through Switzerland and France. The roughly 112-mile route is relatively flat and offers fantastic view...

In planning our Europe trip, we struggled the most with Italy because we kind of loathe tourists, and Italy is crawling with them. It's hard to feel like you're getting an authentic Italian experience when surrounded by twelve other people doing the exact same thing yo...

We don't drink, so we fill that void with ice cream. As Mama Kacher always says: there's always room for ice cream—it just melts and fills in all the empty spaces. We took that perhaps a little too literally and decided to organize an ice cream crawl with our friends t...

After our 6-week Europe trip, people constantly asked us what our favorite country ended up being. I'm already the most indecisive person ever, so trying to settle on one country was like choosing a favorite Dove chocolate—they're all so good! After debating for a whil...

 *Cue "Jerusalem" by Matisyahu*

Jerusalem! It's kind of got a history, if you know what I mean. A holy city for Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, and one of the oldest cities in the world. But you know all that. You're likely reading this because there are so many mind-...
