El Nido | Hotel | Philippines

•••
I don't even know where to begin because this place was just an absolute dream. We landed in Porto Princess from Manila, (get air fair before hand it is cheaper, we bought them the day before for $80, still not bad.) and then we mentally prepared ourselves for a 5-6 hour bus right down to El Nido. Right when you land there are tons of mini vans and hustlers [...]

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[...]

Macchu Picchu | Peru

•••
Yep, This place won’t disappoint! It’s as amazing as it looks. Rain or sun Machu Picchu is absolutely breathtaking. I was so excited to wake up and make our way to the top before anyone and enjoy the park to ourselves. However, I arose to pouring rain and fog making me wonder if I could even see Machu Picchu. I unfortunately had to take the bus up to the top[...]

Seminyak Airbnb | Bali

•••
Perhaps the phrase “A home away from home” just won’t do this next review justice.  Not often will you find the comfort of your childhood bed combined with the adventure of a lifetime.  That’s exactly what I found in the village of Kuta.  Imagine the luxury of a modern Indonesian palace with the friendly welcome of lifelong friends.   This 4 bedroom Villa[...]

Gansbaai | South Africa

•••
My travels have finally taken me to Cape Town for an adventure that I have been dreaming of! It was a very exhilarating and fascinating experience, definitely living up to our high expectations. 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[...]

Kjerg | Norway

•••
Let me just start by saying- Yes this hike is as exhilarating and cool as the pictures look. We started from Stavanger and drove 2.5 hours to Oygardsstol (right to the parking lot to Kjerag), and guys its the prettiest drive ever as you will come across lots of sheep blocking the road, just give them a little beep and they will move right on out of your way.[...]
