Amsterdam is famous for canals, weed, its red light district and being a party city, but it’s also a city full of exceptional food choices. Dutch cheeses, yummy baked goods, stroopwaffles, stamppot, traditional pancakes, and even delicious options from vending machines. Eating our way around Amsterdam was an unforgettable experience. As the locals say, “lekker!” (“Yummy!”) ❤️ The Netherlands! We are also on Insta @gavinandpaulseetheworld #amsterdam #lekker #food
It’s no wonder that Haleakala Crater is the most popular tourist attraction in Maui. As you’ll see in this video, this large dormant volcano crater it is very other-worldly. A lot of tourists get up really early to catch the sunrise but we went in the middle of the day. The drive up above the clouds to the crater is a spectacular experience in itself. ❤️ Maui!

One of the things we love about Switzerland is that there are so many languages spoken within that one country. German in some parts, French in others, and in this video we explore the canton of Ticino, the Mediterranean region of Switzerland on the southern side of the Alps where Italian is the predominate language spoken. In this video you’ll see Bellinzona (a UNESCO heritage site), Locarno, Ascona, Morcote and Lugano, with some stunning Swiss scenery along the way, not to mention one of the nicest views from an Airbnb you’ll ever see.
In the truly mind-blowing Canadian province of Alberta, not too far from Banff, is one of the bluest lakes you could ever hope to see. Peyto Lake is a glacier fed natural wonder, and a must-do if you’re looking for interesting places to stop on the Icefields Parkway between Banff and Jasper. In a place that is full of natural wonders, Peyto Lake is a real Alberta highlight.
The train trip from Paris to Strasbourg takes less than two hours, and you get a sense of how special Strasbourg is before you even leave the train station. A brand new super-modern construction cleverly envelops the old train station building to create an impressive welcome to this incredibly picturesque city. The food was great too. (Well, it’s France so of course it was!) At the end of this video you’ll see our side trip to Colmar, which is so cute that it doesn’t quite seem real.
Füssen is at either the beginning or the end of the romantic road depending on which way you are traveling. It’s beyond cute, super friendly, and the Lech river runs with an extraordinary shade of bright green when the light hits it the right way. Right near the Austrian border, right near Neuschwanstein Castle and damn near perfect. Tschüss Füssen!
Montpellier is a lesser known gem of the south of France. In terms of the architecture, the food, and the general vibe of the place it was one of our favourite stops on our French adventures. It will be forever remembered by us as the place we had the most delicious friand ever. Watch this video and you’ll almost be able to taste it!
New Zealand’s South Island is a great destination for a driving holiday, and one of the best road trips we have ever done was from Queenstown to Tekapo, via Lake Pukaki. The scenery changes completely every half hour or so as you keep driving, and the well paved roads and lack of traffic make for a pretty chilled-out journey. As our Kiwi friends love to say, Sweet As Bro!
They don’t call it Surfers Paradise for nothing. Queensland’s Gold Coast is a must-see for any Australian travel itinerary. Sure, it can be a little bit tacky and oddly hilarious sometimes, but it’s almost always sunny and it’s absolutely always fun.
Our visit to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls came towards the end of our three week Canadian trip, so by then we felt we had a reasonably good sense of what Canada has to offer, and this was an awesome highlight. The falls themselves are mesmerizing, but the actual town of Niagara wasn’t exactly our favourite Canadian destination, and this video features what we thought were the best and worst bits of Niagara. We could have easily walked over the bridge to the USA, but chose not to. We just waved at America instead…
We never expected to end up in Toowoomba, but here we are here for a wedding, in Queensland's largest inland city. Around 130km west from Brisbane. Having a car here is extremely useful if you want to check out the city and its surrounds. Toowoomba was a mixed bag for us.
Graz is Austria’s second largest city after Vienna and it’s a really fun place to spend a couple of nights. The historic city centre is a UNESCO world heritage site, the food is great, and it’s worth climbing the stairs to get to the iconic clock tower at the top of the castle hill.
Bendigo is an easy two hour drive from Melbourne, which makes for an ideal day trip. We found great food, awesome architecture, art, golden heritage, lovely Rosalind park and lots and lots of bats. SO MANY BATS! It is amazing what old gold rush money can build. History is on every corner in Bendigo. We really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.
