Leisure Walk from the Cozumel Cruise Terminal Carnival (Quintana Roo, Mexico)

November 30, 2018 |

Now aboard the Carnival Miracle, we visit Cozumel… yet again. This port is very, very popular. How do I know? This would be my 6th visit to this port from our past Carnival and Royal Caribbean cruises. With so many visits behind us, this time around we check out a local department store while taking a leisurely walk off the main road (Av. Rafael E. Melgar)… enjoying the sights. Read More

Amazing Animal Encounter with a Wild Three-Toed Sloth (Roatan, Honduras)

November 28, 2018 |

Sloths remind me of dolphins with their Mona-lisa smile. Whenever we return to Roatan, we always make a visit to see the sloths. Our first adventure to hold a sloth was back in 2014 travels… specifically, during a Carnival Conquest cruise. Check out our video summary of the experience while learning a few facts we gained during the tour. Read More

Goodbye: Home Sweet Home in Waianae, HI

January 12, 2017 |

Having traveled so much during our RV Trip, we’ve been getting a little stir crazy living on the island. Yes, we love our friends, the laid back island life, boating & hiking but was there more of the world to explore? Was living in Hawaii just getting too expensive? Today, we put our Waianae home up for sale. Read More

App Review: Boom 2 – Mac Volume Booster

February 3, 2015 |

In efforts of packing smart and traveling light with the Carry-On Only Movement (i.e. Western Caribbean and South Africa), I opted to leave my JBL Flip 2 wireless, portable speakers at home. If you’re a Macbook owner, you know how disappointing the speakers are. There just isn’t that oomph to enjoy iTunes and movies on the Mac. No longer! Boom 2 was well worth – $14.99. Read More

Review: (Airbnb) Avida San Lorenzo Tower Studio in Makati, Philippines

December 7, 2014 | 5

We enjoyed staying in Jayme’s Brand New Studio Unit in Makati between Dec.3-7. Fairly new travelers renting from owners versus staying at a hotel, you always have some doubt if the ad matches what you actually get upon arrival. Happy to say that the pictures, represented on Airbnb, matched what we saw when we walked into the studio. Read More

Things to Do: Beginner Hang Gliding Lessons on the Sand Dunes of Jockey’s Ridge State Park (Nags Head, NC)

September 27, 2014 |

328th day RVing and we’re in and around the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Researching things to do in the area, hang gliding lessons was listed. Felt Wright at home with this adventure where “The Wright brothers… generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world’s first successful airplane.” Quite honestly, learning hang gliding seems equal to the perspective of a paper airplane or how it feel to actually be the kite. LOL. Overall, if we had more time in the area, I would have signed up for their week long Hang 1 Camp but their 5 flights package was really fun. Read More
