Alaska – Explore Seward

Alaska – Explore Seward

Seward is a delightful small town at the top of Resurrection Bay. It’s about 2.5 hours outside of Anchorage and its pronunciation is not sexy (not SEEward, it’s SEWard (ew sound, like in sewage)). But do not let the pronunciation or distance stop you, the […]

Alaska – Lost Lake Hike

Alaska – Lost Lake Hike

It was a gorgeous clear day, we thought would be perfect for flightseeing. But without the clouds, the wind picked up and made it impossible to flightsee. I was bummed, but we regrouped and ended up back at Adventure 60 North for recommendations. Adventure 60 […]

Alaska – Tonsina Point Hike

Alaska – Tonsina Point Hike

The Tonsina Point Hike, just south of Seward is a delightful little hike to uninhabited points of Alaska. The hike leads to a secluded black sand beach. Beyond the Tonsina Point Hike, you can reach Caines Head State Recreation Area. Highly recommend this hike on […]

Alaska – Skiing Alyeska

Alaska – Skiing Alyeska

For me, the Alyeska Ski Area was a challenging, but phenomenal part of our trip to Alaska. If you are like me and are only able to ski 1 – 2 times a year or less, this might be a challenging ski area. If you […]

Costa Rica – Rio Celeste Hike

Costa Rica – Rio Celeste Hike

When I saw images of Rio Celeste online, while researching Costa Rica, I was blown away by the color. Yes, it was a bit out of the way, but look at it!! It was on the “maybe” list for a long time until Rebecca found […]

Costa Rica – Cerro Chato

Costa Rica – Cerro Chato

Rebecca and I were both a little nervous about the Cerro Chato hike. We did extensive research and found mixed reviews on the difficulty, which is how we decided to allow ourselves 3 hours each way and no rushing whatsoever.  The morning of the hike, […]

Costa Rica – La Fortuna Local’s Hot Springs

Costa Rica – La Fortuna Local’s Hot Springs

One of the first things you will read about when researching Costa Rica are the hot springs created by the active volcanos in the country. La Fortuna is a hot bed (pun intended) of hot spring resorts and day spas. I enjoy a candlelight warm […]

Costa Rica – Whitewater Rafting in La Fortuna

While in the La Fortuna Area, I convinced Rebecca to do a whitewater rafting tour with the condition that we do the slightly easier, Class II & III Rio Balsa Tour with Wave Expedition. Having gone whitewater rafting a couple times growing up, I knew […]

Costa Rica – Doka Estate Coffee Tour

Costa Rica – Doka Estate Coffee Tour

A major export for Costa Rica is coffee beans. We knew we had to learn more about the growing process from the source. On our way to La Fortuna, we stopped at Doka Estate for a coffee tour. It was delicious and delightful. Arriving to […]
