The fascinating Victorian mystery that is the Winchester mansion.⛲️
It was during our first night in San Jose that we discovered the mystery mansion was only 20 minutes away from where we were staying. Since my husband and I are huge horror movie fans, we decided to check it out.👻 (Well, it took time to convince him to not be scared but yes.😂) It turned out to be NOT SCARY AT ALL. In fact it was a very charming place, with features that were advance for its time.👏🏻
Then again, we toured around daytime. They are currently offering a candlelight Halloween tour, but we wanted to admire the architecture in daylight.
We did however take an EXTENDED TOUR (which is a limited-time offer). We got to explore areas that were previously closed from public for decades! It was such an experience.
In case you missed my Winchester IG Stories and want to see bits from our tour, I will temporarily make the Stories available on my IG profile’s highlights.☝🏻 So feel free to check that out! 😊

Okay we promise this is our last camel photo for a little while, but look at that face! Jaisalmer was one of those places that will stay in our memories for a long time, we met some truly amazing people there.
Have you ever travelled somewhere that has been made 100% better because of the people you met there?

Geoff is currently combating the plague, so we’re putting off recording this week’s episode another day. Here’s a picture of our beautiful house panther, Dakota. She’s named after South, not North, Dakota, which was our favorite state of the 12 we visited last fall. I saw her in a shelter before our trip and we adopted her the day after we got back home. #travelcouple#podcast#esterandgeoff#catsofinstagram#catstagram#coldseason

Krka National Park was amazing... except for the fact that it was completely overrun with tourists! It’s great that the government is making nature so accessible for everyone to enjoy, but you are also forced to try to enjoy everyone else too 🙃 Here’s one of the few pictures we managed to snap alone. Not pictured but also part of the crowd: one of three gelatos each that day 🍦 🍦 🍦
I FINALLY DID IT! I finally managed to set up a blog 😍 It’s a blog designed to give you the straight up, no nonsense facts about a country and my first post is about Zimbabwe. If your planning to go OR are interested in it then give it a read. The link is in my Bio! ⬆️ I would love to hear all feedback, whether this is positivity or negative!

We have 2 days left in Zimbabwe until we head to #Nepal! Ollie has been many times but it will be my first and I can’t wait 😍 I want to show him things he has never seen before (if that is possible) 𝐀𝐥𝐥 𝐍𝐞𝐩𝐚𝐥 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐛𝐞 𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝! 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐰𝐞 𝐞𝐚𝐭, 𝐝𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐞𝐞?
𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐚𝐝𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐛𝐚𝐛𝐲 𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐩𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐭? He was struggling to get up the slope and decided to face plant instead 😂 Seeing animals roam in their natural habitat is both spectacular and heartwarming
