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.
Centrally located between Hilo and Kalapana on the East side of the Big Island, we had chosen Seeker’s Hive – A Home Away From Home. We rented the Pele Room for $49/night. Glad we did and in the future will rent again from these salt-of-the-earth hosts: Jay, Vijay and Sangeeth. They had just recently moved to the Big Island from Minnesota so they shared their passion for their new home!
We just recently learned how to fish for tarpon. Today, we’ve changed it up and went to feed them…. HAND FEED these "silver kings!!!" I first learned about this cheap thrill from an Episode of TripFlip from the Travel Channel and was inspired to add it to our itinerary. Experiencing such a thrill in the states was unbelievable.

We ♥ animals. I’ve never met a giraffe I didn’t like so why not visit a place called Giraffe Ranch.

Best of all was paying extra for a Behind-the-Scenes Tour. Check out why…
We headed to Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. Seeing manatees while snorkeling beside them has been on my bucket list since the beginning of our RV planning. It’s finally here! Inspiration to swim with the manatees came from several sources: Roadtrippers, National Geographic’s story – "When Push Comes to Shove" to the mention in our 1,000 Places to See Before You Die book.
In Canada, enjoying a scenic Road Trip from Vancouver, B.C. to Whistler today. Stopping at Shannon Falls, witnessing athletic rock-climbers before a photo-op with ‘SAM The Lumberjack’. Now, our 4th stop to look for eagles in Brackenale – World’s Eagle Capital. After this last rest stop, we’ll be non-stop to Whistler.
About an hour from Vancouver, on the way to Whistler, we take a pit stop at Shannon Falls which is "composed of a series of cliffs, rising 335 metres above Highways 99, making it the third highest falls in the province…" –BC Parks
"The 3rd highest waterfall in British Columbia, Shannon Falls is an amazing sight and popular attraction for travellers driving the Sea To Sky Highway through Squamish, BC." –Vancouver Trails
