A day trip from Las Vegas to the Valley of Fire

“Red Rock Canyon,” they all said. “It’s close to Vegas,” they added. And so we did, we Red Rock Canyoned. I had been there once before, so I knew it was spectacular, but yet the short 30 minute drive in the car and a hike/picnic had only filled up half the day of our two…

joffre lakes, british columbia | snowy sunday strolls

New years eve – a day when everyone reminisces on what the year before brought (and sometimes what it didn’t bring…) and everyone resolves to make changes in the year ahead. …But why? Why not live a life that you love all the time? A life that you don’t have to resolve to change every…

sombrio beach, british columbia | canadiana surf searching

If we haven’t done something somewhat adventurous in a few weeks, we get an itch. If we don’t scratch it, it just sits there and bugs us until we finally cave and satisfy the urge. I feel so lucky to have this guy in my life – he gets it. I sway him a lot…

exploring off the beaten path in Gigante Bay, Nicaragua

We picked this spot because it’s right next to the legendary Nicaraguan wave at the beach called Playa Colorados. Staying at that beach is tricky – it’s basically populated by wealthy Americans and the resort inside is gated in and labelled with “PRIVATE” and “EXCLUSIVE” everywhere you look. So naturally, our plan was to stay…

A dreamy stay at Hostel Clandestino in Playa Maderas, Nicaragua

Once we finally made it to Playa Maderas, we were slightly delirious. Mostly without a nights sleep, a search for a mysterious bus stop and a hectic border crossing later, we were just happy to lay our heads somewhere. (See post about crossing the Cost/Nica border) Our taxi took us from San Juan Del Sur…
