We created Our Travel Picks because we wanted to help people travel the world like experts. While we are out exploring the world, we carefully pick places that suit our standards and share them with our community. Here you can find our travel picks for Destinations, Accommodation, Tours, Activities, Eating, Transportation, Cruises, and Website Reviews.


OurTravelPicks.com travel experts’ team is made up of Juno Kim and Stephen Bugno, who have a combined experience of more than 25 years of independent travel and 15 years of travel writing and blogging.




Juno Kim

Juno left her job as a Mechanical Engineer in Seoul, South Korea in 2011 to peruse a full-time career as a travel blogger and photographer. Her travels have taken her across Asia, North America, South America, Europe, and Australasia. She blogs at RunawayJuno.com . When not out discovering the world, you’ll find her on Facebook and Twitter.


Stephen Bugno

Stephen was a born traveler. Before the age of ten he was planning family vacations and studying the map on road trips making sure his father didn’t take any wrong turns. His decade-plus of independent travels have taken him to more than 85 countries. His freelance articles have appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Hartford Courant. He publishes the GoMad Nomad Travel Mag and blogs at Bohemian Traveler.

Most recently they have established Unquote Travel, a small group tours company focusing on experiential and authentic travel to destinations world-wide.
