Brecon Beacons vs Wye Valley Activities – All The Adventure You Can Handle! The Brecon Beacons and Wye Valley are two stunning areas less than 20 miles from one another. Each has its own distinct geographical beauty, but both are hugely popular tourist destinations perfect for getting outdoors.

City Hopping in Eastern China – Two Weeks, One Amazing Trip!

China Trip Report – What we learned, what we wish we had known, and why we’d go again. Three Cities, Two Weeks, and One Amazing Trip!

We’d start south in Guangzhou visiting our friends, then fly to Shanghai, and end our journey by taking the train north to Beijing.

Lake Chapala through the ages could have been a wild, sprawling, confusing book to match her nation’s history, but it’s not. Author Tony Burton managed to accomplish a great amount of order in this 500 year historical review.
