Acapulco, Mexico

So I have a confession to make, I wasn’t looking forward to going to Acapulco. If you frequently read these posts then you probably know that I don’t really enjoy going to tourist areas. In my experience tourist areas using have loads of people, everything is expensive, you aren’t actually experiencing the true culture of…

Off-the-beaten-track: Islands Part 2

Last week I wrote a post about some off-the-beaten-path islands in Southeast Asia I had the pleasure of visiting. This week I write about the rest. The most beautiful, weirdest, most off the beaten path islands. I hope that you enjoy this post as much I have enjoyed writing it. Corn Islands, NicaraguaLocation: Off the Atlantic…

Off-the-beaten-path: Islands SE Asia

Many people who travel often discover a niche they are drawn to more than others. Some like big cities– they like losing themselves among the bright and exciting lights, and the thousands of people moving from one place to another. Others like historical sights. From Machu Picchu to Ankor Wat, to Teotihuacan they pack their…

Camping in the Northwest 2014 video

This past week has been a flurry of video editing digital organization. Through this craziness I stumbled upon some videos I completely forgot about, and thought it would be fun to post the flash backs. In 2014 I joined family/friends on their annual trip to ************ editors note: I was threatened with death, dismemberment, and…

Visiting Korcula Island, Croatia

Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Croatia with my family and some really amazing family friends. I was already planning a trip to Europe and it turned out to be the perfect beginning. At first I was some what nervous at the size, 10!, of the group. How was a group that…

Little Corn, Nicaragua

My trip to Little Corn was more then slightly ironic. I spent 3.5 weeks in Nicaragua, and most of my time was spent taking classes and studying. Towards the end of my classes I decided to spurge a bit and go to an island in the Caribbean, Little Corn. After my research the island seemed…

Medellin

Medellin has my salsa heart. In this beautiful city I took Spanish classes by day and Salsa lessons by night. Eerily similar to Seattle I felt at home between the invasive dampness and hipster inhabitants

Culebra, Puerto Rico

Flamenco beach on Culebra island is amazing. One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. The island used to be a base for US military and as such has two abandoned tanks and some active Land mines if you leave the main path. So don’t leave the main path. The beach was packed…

My hearts devoción,San Juan, Puerto Rico

Have you ever seen west side story? If you have, do you remember the scene in the roof with the song that starts with “Puerto rico, my hearts devotion…”? Well, I have. Not only have I seen it I also happen to remember the song and I proceeded to sing it All. Trip. Long.  I…

Nusa Lembongan

It’s crazy to think I’m almost done with my trip in South East Asia. It’s crazy how the time feels like it has both flown by and slowly crawled. I find myself in Nusa Lembongan for the finals days of my adventure; what a place to end my trip. The beaches are stunning. The water…

Canggu, Bali

Spent two nights in a small town north of Kuta where the people were friendly, the food was good, and beach was beautiful. I ate in restaurants next to rice paddies, and helped with the local beach clean up. I also had the amazing chance to met the owners of Rojos Breakfast Corner. These ladies…
