We found Kilindi Zanzibar to be the best escape for anyone looking for romance or a honeymoon on Zanzibar. The Pavilions The pavilions at Kilindi are one of a kind, designed … Read More

Best Travel Water Bottles

It should be no surprise that having the best travel water bottle is important to us. We have talked about how plastic is destroying our planet many times on our site, and take notice when hotels make a push to reduce plastic water bottles and opt for water filtration systems instead. However, we can not solely rely on businesses to make the shift to reducing plastic use, we as the consumer have to as well. That means carrying a great water bottle. Besides saving the environment from plastic waste, staying hydrated is essential when traveling. It’s easy to neglect your body … Read More

Best Packing Cubes

Living on the road means we pack and unpack our bags a lot, as in a couple times a week. Packing can be a total drag, but we both invested in some of the best packing cubes we could find and it saves us a lot of time. We were skeptical when we first bought something to organize our bags.

We ventured into the Zanzibar Coffee House, which was humming with activity and had one table left. We were relegated to the table next to the door – a seat that is usually the most undesirable … Read More
