RV Day #9: Time to move from Capri RV Resort to Quail Ridge RV Park. We jumped on I-8E and have a 3-4 hour drive. With colder weather approaching, we had researched a good location to stay that wouldn’t have temperatures below freezing and would allow us to explore somewhat North Arizona with the Mini Cooper – Red Rocks of Sedona, Bearizona, Montezuma Castle, and the Grand Canyon.
I’ve always been under the impression that you’d need to have a minimum $5,000 budget to enjoy Africa. Is that true? How far is Africa anyway? If you fly all the way across the globe to get there, can’t we stay as long as possible? When is the best time of year to go? What airlines fly direct or with the least stops? So many questions and time to get some answers. (Illustration by Kenneth Gitonga)
Today’s goal before boarding our Princess Sapphire Cruise was to bicycle around the Seawall. The 8.8-kilometre Seawall is one of Stanley Park’s biggest attractions… a scenic 22-km path that lines Vancouver’s waterfront. We check out of the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier and get ourselves back on the Seabus, crossing the Vancouver Harbour, so we can drop off our luggage at The Cruise Ship Terminal at Canada Place.
"Towering 600m (almost 2000ft) above Squamish, the Stawamus Chief is Canada’s big-wall rock-climbing mecca, attracting keen rock climbers from around the world every summer.

We heard about this Drive-Thru Safari Adventure from our stay at La Quinta Inn where we had stayed prior to our cruise. This morning, we disembarked our 11-night Southern Caribbean Cruise, from Port Everglades, with Royal Caribbean and had this last hurrah in mind instead of a straight ~ 4-hour drive back home. We’ve been to other wildlife parks but we heard that there’s more than just the drive-through safari to enjoy. After the drive, we could exploration other attractions on our two feet like animal feeding experiences, rides, water sprayground, and more.
Our 3rd visit to Belize. Our choice of port excursions were to visit the Mayan Ruins of Altun Ha (back in Mar.13, 2014) and to Snorkel with Nurse Sharks and Rays (more recently Oct. 4, 2018). This time around, our party of 4 go cave tubing at Nohoch Che’en – a national park throughout which the Caves Branch River runs with the added bonus of a zipline adventure. We will be tubing an area carved out of the limestone foothills of the Maya Mountains and where the river exits an underground cavern. Let’s go!
On our 3rd visit to Roatan, we were with family and wanted to introduce them to some local wildlife. We arrive by Carnival cruise, and the tour operator picked us up from the port. Arch’s Iguana Park was only one stop in-between a bit of sightseeing and snorkeling. We were all looking forward to learning more and feeding the wild iguanas. Enjoy the video.
