Snorkelling, Sailing & Paddleboards. Oh, my!

When you’re swimming in the pool bar with a fresh (and oh so delicious) piña colada from a smiling bartender, surrounded by beautiful people who you’ve just met but already feel like your best friends; it can feel impossible to get up and force yourself to do something other than relax. But when there are so many activities (not those ones!)…

Sandals Here I Come!

It’s no secret that I have been dreaming of flying away to the Bahamas to meet the swimming pigs! I even suggested that people start calling me ‘Bahama Mama’ which didn’t quite catch on (sad!). But was has been a kind of a secret, if you haven’t been paying attention to my Facebook and Twitter,  is that I’m heading to…

Bucket List – Pig Beach

Crystal clear waters, over 2,000 islands and cays to explore, and pigs that swim! Travel bucket list, life bucket list, Christmas list, birthday list, the Bahamas are on my mind lately and not just because I think I’d enjoy it if people started calling me, “Bahama Mama!” (I like nicknames a lot, guys). Nestled in the too-beautiful-for-words waters of the…

Bucket List – TradeWinds

My travel bucket list is pretty much a map of the world but there are a few places and adventures that are on the top of my list; taking a luxury yacht charter with TradeWinds is definitely in the top five right behind taking a tour of lemur island (known by cartoon loving children and people not obsessed with lemurs…

Travel Deals: Myrtle Beach

I’ve never been to Myrtle Beach, the only Myrtle memories I have are being jealous of the kids headed to South Carolina in a loaded up mini-van with their families during March Break – I went to camp, it was less cool. Since then Myrtle Beach has been on my American cities bucket list, residual effects of my pre-teen fomo. With…

About That ATV Accident

Now that I’m finally back to work and a regular schedule (not drinking mojitos every day) and my wounds have healed (mostly) I think I’m ready to talk about the ATV accident, in more detail. You might think rolling an ATV and ending up in a Costa Rican hospital would ruin a vacation, you would be wrong. On our third…

Sloth Sanctuary Part 1

We’ve finally arrived, after an ATV accident (more on that later), a flight on a tiny prop plane, and a 4 hour drive through the rainforest we have arrived. We are at the Sloth Sanctuary. I’ve been dreaming about coming here since Vice first introduced me to this magical place… In fact when I interviewed for my current job I…

Dreams Las Mareas

If there is a right way to start a vacation, it’s with lounging. Vacations should start with champagne, mojitos, and a beautiful view. At least in my opinion they should. With that in mind, I’m writing to you poolside from La Cruz, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We’re about an hour and a half from Liberia and miles away from any kind…

Pura Vida

When I left for Greece in May, I promised myself that I would travel more, I spent too long focusing on work and not enough on seeing the world. In September I starting planning my next great adventure, Costa Rica 2016. We leave on January 1st, not a bad way to start the new year if you ask me. Pura…
