Lisa and Rick
Hola amigos! The great thing about getting married "later in life" is that we both already have plenty of the essential things that make a happy home. The gifts we tend to give each other are art and experiences (even research shows experiential purchases tend to make people happier than purchases of material goods - ***), so we thought this modern spin on a wedding registry would allow family and friends to contribute to our honeymoon experience in a way that will be very meaningful to us. In summer 2014 we are planning an extended honeymoon trip-of-a-lifetime to South America. We're still building our itinerary, so stay posted for details. EDIT for the traditionalists: Okay. We could stand to have one uniform set of flatware, and it's something that would actually fit in our pre-reno 2/2 bungalow. Mini-traditional registry can be found at Crate & Barrel under Lisa/Rick or here: ***. Oh, and we'd never turn down a gift card to REI!Argentina Buenos Aires, Argentina Colonia Del Sacramento, Uruguay Colombia Peru

The road between Santiago, Chile and Mendoza, Argentina is not for the faint of heart with its hairpin turns across the Andes. We could fly between cities, but this may be one of those routes that ...
For better or worse, Lisa was not cursed with the "Asian Flush". Send us out to explore the origins of those delicious, inky Malbecs.
The things we'd like to pass down through the generations are furniture heirlooms. Buenos Aires is a great place to buy antique, architectural furniture. By the time we return from our honeymoon, w...
Sadly, our beloved pooch, Penny, can't come with us :(. But we hear a bone a day keeps the doggie blues away!
When you don't have a car and don't have to go to work the next day, why not? In Peru and Chile, the rule is at least a pisco sour apiece each day.
When was the last time you saw a train with a glass ceiling in the states, let alone one welcoming you with melodious pan flutes? We'll ride from Cuzco to Machu Picchu and back in high style for ab...

Aw yeah. Even though we watched it a thousand times and still don't remember much more about the plot than the gigantic emerald, we do remember Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas were steamy sexy ...
Lisa saw Anthony Bourdain eat fried snapper on a beach across from Cartagena on an episode of No Reservations, and has been mildly obsessed with doing this several years since. It's kind of the who...
