Review: (Airbnb) Manora Guest House in Talisay City, Cebu, Philippines

January 10, 2015 |

We enjoyed staying in Aurora’s Manora Furnished Apartments with Wi-Fi between Jan.4-10. We chose the Manora Guest House because there would be plenty of room for 3 guests (Bill, my mom, and myself), we’d have Internet access plus, it was just the next town over from Cebu City closer to the Port where we would have to jump on a ferry to our next adventure to Bohol. It was a special trip since none of us have ever been to Cebu and I flew my mom, from Manila, to see a different part of the Philippines. 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 apartment. Read More

First Time: Whitewater Rafting on the Pigeon River (Hartford, Tennessee)

September 16, 2014 | 1

Call us adrenaline junkies. Adventure tourism is our style of travel since we’re always on the lookout for activities that involve an element of risk. When we had recently experienced a Carolina Moonshine ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Railway, we saw an activity desk passing out brochures for a beginner-friendly white water rafting outfit in Hartford, Tennessee called "Wildwater."

What is Riverboarding?

"Riverboarding is a whitewater activity that is basically like bodyboarding meets whitewater, but on a beefier, more buoyant board. Riverboarders lay on their stomachs on their boards…" –Kevin Yount, Appalachian Riverboard Company

Where To Stay: A’Zambezi River Lodge (Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe)

June 4, 2014 |

A’Zambezi River Lodge was our gateway to experience all that Victoria Falls had to offer. Sunset cruises, fishing trips and such were located right on or beside the property. All of our tours provided pickup whether it was for our Canoe Safari on the Upper Zambezi River, Victoria Falls helicopter tour, or Morning Lion Walk… everything was convenient. The lodge didn’t disappoint as base to experience all this. Read More
