Cruise Vacation Port Excursion: Jet Ski Tour in Grand Cayman

November 27, 2018 |

We arranged this port excursion outside of Carnival Miracle (as we did a past excursion when on Carnival Conquest). Typically, the cruise arranges tours to Stingray City but in massive boat loads. It’s not our idea of enjoyment brushing shoulder to shoulder with a crowd to get a glimpse of wildlife. We read a lot of great TripAdvisor reviews (4.5 out of 5 stars based on 114 reviews) about Action Water Sports. It’s actually our 2nd time using this company as we had just been here just last month. We reserved 2 jet skis as single riders (Total: $220) through Grand Cayman Cruise Excursions (Island Marketing Ltd). Read More

Why Visit Lion Country Safari (West Palm Beach, Florida)?

April 20, 2018 |

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. Read More

Review: Croc Encounters – Reptile Park and Wildlife Center (Tampa, Florida)

June 3, 2017 |

Croc Encounters is a non-profit conservation and educational facility that provides a sanctuary to unwanted reptiles. On a Saturday morning, we drove 25-minutes from home to enjoy some time with the reptile world. It was a self-guided tour where we were given some turtle food and the opportunity to take a picture with a 3-ft to 4-ft baby gator. Read More

Journal: Birding – Java Finches Captured by GoPro

October 10, 2016 |

An advantage of having a house with palm trees is buying a bird feeder. How lovely is it to have your morning coffee, listening and watching the birds. Bird food with a GoPro strapped to the tree and you’ve got yourself a show. Enjoy! Read More

Things to Do: Walk with the Lions (Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe)

June 2, 2014 | 1

We had arranged this morning adventure with lion cubs through the A’Zambezi River Lodge concierge (a Wild Horizon Representative). Having just arrived late afternoon yesterday but what a great way to start our visit to Victoria Falls! The Lion Encounter still receives a 4.5 out of 5 rating based on 285 reviews on TripAdvisor. They’ll get another raving review from us!

Where in the World Can You Hold a Sloth? (Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Honduras)

March 14, 2014 | 4

We arranged this port excursion outside of Carnival Conquest – Caribbean Cruise. It was very affordable to enjoy the day in Roatan from the scenic drive West and East through villages to visiting the wildlife sanctuaries and getting up close and personal… in this case… a Sloth. We didn’t know what to expect from visits to these wildlife sanctuaries and so we were very delighted to see and hold a Sloth… although, I don’t know if it’s a guaranteed experience by the tour vendor. This particular sloth was more social and had a good temperament for visitors. We were told usually they’re up in the trees so it was a great treat! Read More

It was very affordable to enjoy the day in Roatan from the scenic drive West and East through villages to visiting the wildlife sanctuaries and getting up close and personal… in this case… Iguanas… which remind me of a legendary, mythical dragon.
