Goodbye WordPress!

WE HAVE MOVED TO theWeegs.com !!!!!!!!!!!

We’ve changed the name from Travel Mementos to The Weegs (our last name). This inspiration came from the idea of making the blog more personal and representative of us.

We have also updated the design entirely, including a new logo. We’ve added new content like: “Map”, “About Us” and “The Blog” in order to provide a better description of who we are, what are we doing, and how we do it. Check out the latest welcome post for more info.

If you subscribe to our blog via WordPress, we have made it easy for you and automatically transferred your email subscription to the new website. You should receive an email about it soon.

Finally we have become independent from WordPress.com for a variety of reasons. Many thanks to the WordPress.com community for your help and support with Travel Mementos! We couldn’t have done it without you. Our new website will include all past content and any new posts to come!

Please take a look around the theWeegs.com and tell us any thoughts or suggestions, they are always welcome.

Cheers!

Pamela and Adam (The Weegs)

Iguazu Falls

Recently we were lucky enough to visit one of the greatest natural wonders of the world: the Iguazu Falls! Shared by Brazil and Argentina, this set of waterfalls is a natural beauty almost impossible to imagine. We spent our experience on the Argentinian side. A short 30 minute ride on a local bus brought us to the front of the national park. Once inside, you can choose from several hikes that show off different angles of the stunning falls. We did them all in approximately 5 hours.

The first waterfall we saw is called the Garganta del Diablo (in Spanish) or Devil’s Throat. To get here we took a train and then walked for another kilometer. Devil’s Throat is an incredibly loud and impressive waterfall where about half of the river falls into a narrow chasm with a drop of about 250 feet. Keep reading!

Traverse City, MI

A wonderful city with many things to do and see. Hip downtown area with great restaurants and shops, try the Omelette Shoppe for a delicious breakfast. We spent a day touring wineries on the Old Mission peninsula. In our opinion, a ‘must see’ while in Traverse. Gorgeous views and tasty vino. Another main attraction thirty miles away is the Sleeping Bear Dunes, voted as the most beautiful place in the U.S. by Good Morning America (but I don’t agree). Keep reading

Mackinac Island, MI

After spending 3 nights in Rogers City we are heading north to explore the upper peninsula. On our way there, stuck between the lower and upper peninsula, we stopped at Mackinac City and Mackinac Island. The island has a very cute colonial character, no cars and only 492 people!

Highlights:

  • Fudge, famous here.
  • Food and drinks at Pink Pony
  • Very relax vibe, amazing service, friendly people.
