As we look forward to another adventurous year, it’s fun to look back and see which of our posts resonated the most with our readers over the past 12 months. In no particular order, here’s the top-10 list of our most-viewed posts of 2019. (Note that these were most-viewed posts this year, although some of them have pre-2019 publication dates.)

On behalf of the Latitude Adjustment team, we want to say THANK YOU for visiting, reading, and leaving comments. Here’s wishing you all a a healthy, prosperous, and adventure-filled 2020!

Reflections on an Expat Year 

With this post, we got reminded that our readers really like information about the expat experience. What’s it like to pull up roots and leave all that’s familiar. How to cover the basics: getting legal residency, securing a rental, getting healthcare. Tackling language and finding a comfort zone.

Best of Madrid

Boy, did we love our first visit to Madrid. And, judging from the popularity of this post, readers enjoyed the experience right along with us.

Peru’s Sacred Valley 

Our readers must really love Peru, because all of our posts from our three-week trip there were super-popular. This one is a good overview of what to see and do in the Sacred Valley area that includes Cusco, Machu Picchu, and many other must-see locales in the stunning Peruvian Andes.

Spooky Times in Buenos Aires

Our readers know how much we like cemeteries, and La Recoleta in Buenas Aires is world-class. We brought this post back just in time for Halloween this year.

Part One of the Inca Trail

Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu remains one of the biggest highlights of our travel life. Here’s part one.

Part Two of the Inca Trail 

In which we arrive on foot to Machu Picchu, and it’s every bit as awe-inspiring as we always imagined.

Discovering Jardin, a Colombian gem

Visiting pretty Jardin was one of our first ventures outside Medellin to explore Colombia’s Pueblos Patrimonios (designated Heritage Towns).

The City of Lights

Our trip to Paris still seems like a dream. It was everything I’d always imagined it to be, and the perfect place to spend a “BIG” birthday!

Versailles – So much more than the Palace

We loved spending a couple of days in Versailles, the quintessential French village.
