The myth of Atlantis is an enigma. Is it the Greek island of Santorini? Is it lost forever and sunken to the depths of the ocean? Is it guarded by the Kraken? This is exactly why it’s such an appealing marketing scheme to call a glorified casino by the same name, Atlantis, and pretend like you are going to...

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...

Dolphins, Sharks and Manatees, oh my! We joined the Time and Tide Tours in Port Canaveral prior to our sailing on the Disney Fantasy and it was an awesome way to learn about the port and the history of the area. We got to go fishing, see and hold aquatic wildlife, and watch a pod of dolphins swim in...

Who knew that Key West was a little slice of the Caribbean just 3 hours southwest of Miami? It makes sense considering it is an island in the middle of the ocean, but I never figured it was covered in pastel painted victorian era style homes, towering mahogany trees lining the sidewalks and boulevards, and friendly pedestrian and bicycle...

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 spending five days solely at the Gran Caribe All-Inclusive Family Resort, we were ready for something other than virgin margaritas in every possible flavor and swimming 18 hours a day. We decided to rent a car, which was delivered to us at the resort, and travel through the Mexican Riviera. At least as far as we could reasonably...

We traveled to Norway with one purpose in mind, and that was to see the Northern Lights. When we first started planning, the first result that popped up in Google was for the Hurtigruten Northern Lights Cruise. The advertisements for the Hurtigruten were compelling, enticing, and romantic. We were desperate to see the lights, and we were sold. We’d...

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 read that Tromsø was the one place on Earth where the Northern Lights appeared more than anywhere else in the world, Norway soared to the top of our adventure list. We immediately...

Of all the truly incredible adventures we participated in during our family Christmas trip to Norway, from our spiritual excursion to witness the Northern Lights in Kirkenes, to the authentically cultural journey through the North Cape on the Hurtigruten, to celebrating a Norwegian Christmas in Oslo, our most magical experience was our husky dog sledding ride through the snow...

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,...
