Our visit to Australia began in trendy Melbourne, then down the treasure-lined Gold Coast. We gawked at koalas and wallabies, and witnessed the gospel of the Twelve Apostles.
In Cambodia we dotted around Siem Riep's famed Angkor Wat complex, and immersed ourselves in the incredible story of modern Phnom Pen. Its people as warm as its weather!
In all our travels, Croatia may be our favorite place on earth. We savored Zagreb's streetside cafes, the endless waterfalls of Plitvice, and the gorgeous coast between Split and Dubrovnik.
Denmark is dreamy. We traversed Copenhagen's busy canals and reveled at Tivoli Gardens amusement park. The countryside's vast palaces left us awestruck.
In Germany, our homeland-by-heritage, we lived as Berliners do. Hackescher Markt treats, Mauerpark flea market shopping, and hours on Museum Island were a few of our highlights.
We experienced Northern Italy's modern renaissance with a visit to chic Milan. After rotating risottos, cathedrals, and gelatos, we made time to tour the Expo Milano of 2015.
New Zealand, home to –arguably– the most beautiful scenery on earth. We rented a car and spent 40 days traveling between the North and South islands. It must be seen to be believed.
Norway hosted us for its 200th birthday celebration. Bergen shared its dock-side charm and maritime history. A day-long fjord and rail tour showcased the country's natural beauty.
Malaysia's diversity makes for a culture-rich, tasty adventure. We cruised day markets in Kuala Lumpur, ate our way through Penang, and beached ourselves in Langkawi.
Slovenia is our favorite underrated destination. Ljubljana's quaint vibe extends to its gorgeous northern mountains and lakes. Bled, Vintgar, and Kranska Gora left us breathless.
Thailand is on every bucket list for good reason. We fed on the energy of mega-city Bangkok, relaxed in Chiang Mai's cool night air, and sipped smoothies on its southern beaches.
Vietnam's friendliness is rivaled only by its fondness for fresh tasting dishes, and stunning landscape. We visited Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi, and all major stops in between.
