Scotland: Where the warmth meets the cold

Scotland: Where the warmth meets the cold

Although I had some pretty high expectations of Scotland, I was still surprised my how much I loved it there. In many ways, the scenery reminded me of New Zealand: rolling green hills dotted with white sheep, u-shaped valleys and mountains surrounded by a beautiful […]

Destinations before I die

Destinations before I die

I have to admit, I often think about my own mortality. Mostly, in the sense that your life can be taken so quickly and I would like to enjoy my life to the fullest while I’m living and able-bodied. I have been fortunate to have […]

Ontario Cottaging

Ontario Cottaging

I have been fortunate enough to visit many countries around the world but I haven’t seen very much of my home country, Canada. I often meet travellers who are in the same position. They’ll remark that I’ve seen more of their country than them. For […]

One thing I like to do when I travel is bike wherever I can. It’s fun, it’s active and it allows you to cover a lot of terrain but doesn’t go so fast that you miss the core sites. Although all of the biking I […]

Corcovado, Oh How Lovely

Corcovado, Oh How Lovely

Quiet nights of quiet stars Quiet chords from my guitar Floating on the silence that surrounds us Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams Quiet rocks by quiet streams And a window that looks out on Corcovado, oh how lovely – Corcovado, Antonio Carlos Jobim These lyrics […]

Nothing but Poas

Nothing but Poas

We flew from La Fortuna to San Jose. Since we were flying to Puerto Jiminez, we took advantage of the Nature Air All You Can Fly Pass. For 7 days, you have unlimited plane travel, for $282, which is less than what it would have […]

Pampered in Arenal

Pampered in Arenal

In 1968, the quiet town of La Fortuna experienced an event that changed their existence forever: a massive eruption that buried over 15 km of land and killed 87 people. Little known to the outside world prior to the eruption, tourists have since been flocking […]
