Fall Color Road Trip in Washington State

Washington state is home to some of the best natural displays of fall color in the world. Around mid to late October, the trees begin to turn vivid shades of yellow, orange, and red. It's a photographer's paradise! While there are many places to see fall color around downtown Seattle, you can also take a day trip and see even more impressive displays of fall foliage. A few weekends ago, we took a road trip to Olympia to see their autumn trees. This past weekend, we decided to go east toward Wenatchee to see the fall colors of the mountains. Our route started in Seattle and followed Highway 2 out to Index, past Steven's Pass, and on to Leavenworth. Along the way, there were plenty of places to stop and admire the beauty, particularly at the Tumwater Dam. We then continued on to Peshastin, taking small country roads through the many apple and pear orchards and grape vineyards. On a whim, we stopped by Wedge Mountain Winery to taste some wine. We ended up taking home a bottle of their delicious 2014 Estate Lemberger wine (highly recommend!) and were delighted when owners were kind enough to let us explore their apple orchard and even take a bag of freshly picked fruits home with us. From Peshastin, we went a bit further to Dryden before heading back to Seattle via Highway 2.

We snapped many photos along the way and even created a video of our trip. Check out the photos and video below, and see our whole driving route.

Travel Photos to Inspire You to Visit Olympia

Looking for a great weekend trip from Seattle? Just an hour south of the Emerald City is Washington's state capital, Olympia. It's actually one of our favorite getaways in Washington state. While it has its fair share of government buildings, there's plenty more to see and do. Downtown has a good number of parks, vintage shops, and dining options, all within walking distance. Venture outside of downtown, and you'll find even more natural gems. If you're planning a trip to Seattle and wondering what else to visit in the area, consider a road trip to Olympia. Be sure to pack your camera and hiking boots, as it's a nature lover's paradise. Check out our travel guide for ideas on what to do, and scroll through the photo gallery below to get inspired to visit!

Travel Photos to Inspire You to Visit Italy

We just returned from an exhilarating 3 weeks in Italy and have a swath of travel photos to sort through. Our journey began on the Amalfi Coast with a stay in Positano and Amalfi, and a journey out to Capri. From there, we wound back to Rome for a night where we picked up a rental car. We then drove to through Tuscany for a week to meet our families for our wedding. Afterward, we went north to the Dolomites and ended our trip in Milan.

Many photos were taken, in addition to videos that we are posting on our YouTube channel (one teaser video below!) Scroll through some of our select images below. Photos were taken with a mix of cameras including the Fujifilm X-Pro2, Sony a6300, DJI Mavic Pro and Samsung Galaxy S8.

Travel Photos to Inspire You to Visit Hong Kong

Visit-Hong-Kong.jpg

Hong Kong is one of those places in Asia that we've never aspired to visit but were pleasantly surprised by. As the first stop of our month long trip to Asia, we were blown away by Hong Kong during our one-week stay. Known for its vibrant street food scene, bustling markets, and diverse culture, Hong Kong is a hotspot for tourists from all over the world. Visiting in the spring meant that Hong Kong was warm, yet overcast with relatively cool temperatures for its tropical climate. It ended up being our most tolerable climate of the 5 countries in Asia we visited during our month long trip. We have so many stories and travel tips from our recent trip but we wanted to start by introducing this magical place in the form of pictures. Here our are favorite travel photos to inspire you to visit Hong Kong.

Travel Photos to Inspire You to Visit Macau

Visit-Macau.jpg

Are you considering a trip to Macau, often considered the Las Vegas of Asia? We recently did a two-day trip to Macau from our base in Hong Kong and absolutely loved our stay. This former Portuguese colony still has European influences. Yet it is also strikingly modern with new casinos and hotels being constructed as we speak. If you visit, be sure to wander the glitzy areas, but also stay off the beaten path to the parks, markets, and other tourist attractions that will give you a taste of daily life in Macau. Whether you do just a day trip or an overnight stay, make time in your travel itinerary to explore all four regions. Below, we share travel photos to inspire you to visit Macau.
