On our first trip to Mexico we were only able to visit one cenote: Dos Ojos. It was love at first sight. Swimming in a cave clear as crystal, shared with local fish where you can see to the very bottom depths, surrounded by a natural cave in which stalactites are covering the ceiling while wading in crisp fresh...

Should you Drive in Mexico? The answer is unequivocally yes! Just like you should definitely Rent a Car in Mexico, (see Part 1), you should absolutely explore Mexico outside of the tourist zones of Cancun and Playa del Carmen. You may have to take your nerves to the gym to pump some iron in advance, because driving in Mexico can...

Bamboo River Rafting on the Martha Brae River was our favorite excursion when we stopped in Falmouth, Jamaica during our Disney Cruise on the Disney Fantasy. This is not to be confused with white water river rafting, which is typically what comes to mind when we talk about this excursion and everyone’s jaw drops to the floor when we...

Near Tulum was Dos Ojos, the cenote with two eyes. We wasted the day lazily away at Tulum, enjoying every minute soaking up the historical scenery, architecture and powerful location of the most important trade post in the Mayan civilization of the 13th century and didn’t want to stop swimming in the shadow of El Castillo. Who could blame...

After chasing down the Northern Lights unsuccessfully in Iceland four years ago, this unfulfilled dream of ours has never left the forefront of our thoughts.

When we settled on chasing the Northern Lights in Norway for our Christmas celebrations we took a lot of time to prepare. Even frantically so. We read about using our camera, seeking them out, where to go, how to go, when to go, including seeing them at Christmas, how to dress, how the weather affected chances of seeing them,...

When we visited Japan we knew exactly what we wanted to do in both Hiroshima and Kyoto. They were easy - they had designated attractions that were obvious and historical. Places we couldn't miss! But when it came to planning our adventures in Tokyo, we were at a loss. Tokyo has no distinctive genre of attractions. It’s a melting...

Driving in Iceland in the winter can, and most likely will be terrifying and treacherous. Many of the roads are actually closed during the winter because driving conditions are so poor, including the entire northeast region. Driving in Iceland isn’t too bad in the city, but once you leave Reykjavik, country roads aren’t a priority for snowplows. In addition...
