Iguazu Falls, JUNGLE TOUR | Brazil + Argentina

Checked off 280 amazing waterfalls from my bucket list. My mind was completely blown by this incredible place. I've dreamt of this place for quite sometime, so standing in-front of this surreal place was absolutely a once in a life time experience that literally, yes literally, took my breath away. So let me get down to the logistics of getting to this magic[...]

Green Hill Valley Elephant Sanctuary | Myanmar

I flew across the world to experience one of the most fascinating, beautiful, and unique places I have ever been. Myanmar is a dream!!  One of my most incredible and precious moments I experienced there was with Green Hill Valley Elephant Camp with Re-Plantation.  This is located just an hour outside of Kalaw deep within the mountain terrain. I know there[...]

Arenal Rafting | La Fortuna | Costa Rica

Adventure city here I come!  The people in Costa Rica are incredibly amazing, kind, and generous; who know  how to treat tourists right.  One of my favorite adventures I was able to experience was the river rafting with one of the best river rafting companies, Arenal Rafting.  Danny, the owner of Arenal Rafting, had exceptional hospitality and was very knowl[...]

El Nido | Big Lagoon | Philippines

Hey Guys! So back to El Nido, and what there is to do other then beach it all day, because we know that sun can be exhausting! Well here are a few of my favorite things that I did. We booked a tour right when we got to our hotel. I did do some research and it looks like all the tours cost all about the same 1000PHP plus 200PhP for a tourist fee. There are 4 [...]

Portage Glacier | Alaska

During my travels around the world I continue to challenge  myself and recently I met with an adventure that pushed me and my Golden Girls physically like never before.  Hiking an epic trail in South America or Hawaii is one thing but try kayaking to a massive Alaskan glacier! I can’t think of a better way to experience Alaska then teaming up with Great Land[...]

I had the opportunity to join the White Shark Diving Company. They are phenomenal to book with, very accommodating and helpful. They are located in Gansbaai, app[...]

Viva Safaris | South Africa

I can successfully say we have seen 4 of the BIG 5 and it would not have been possible if it weren't for the amazing tour via Viva Safaris! First and foremost, we'd like to give a BIG thanks to Viva Safaris for accommodating us in the best way. The trip starts by getting picked up at your hotel in Johannasburg (super convenient, and yes they were on time). F[...]

Halong Bay | Vietnam

I had the most perfect ending to our adventurous trip in Vietnam with Indochina Cruises in Halong bay! I heard horror stories of how Halong Bay, if not done right, can be a complete tourist trap where you're relentlessly hassled and the only thing that may actually be as advertised is your junk boat (as they call it) is just that--junky. I decided to skip al[...]
