A Costa Rica adventure and road trip

A Costa Rica adventure and road trip

Costa Rica, in Central America, might be a small country but it packs a seriously big punch when comes to adventure, wildlife and nature. It’s also one of the happiest countries on earth.

Costa Rica is bordered by Panama to the South and Nicaragua to the North. Its location between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea means there are two contrasting coastlines to discover and a whole lot more in between.

Our Costa Rica adventure covered everything from high altitude cloud forests, jungles and rainforests to beaches and volcanoes. Waterfalls and canopy walks took our breath away and the wildlife watching was epic. We spent an unforgettable two weeks in Costa Rica – here are some of the highlights.

Exploring East Coast Barbados on a Bajan Road Trip

Barbados beaches. Crystal clear Caribbean waters lapping soft, white powdery sand. Palm trees laden with ripe coconuts. Blue skies stretching into an endless horizon. West coast Barbados beaches have all that, and more. Did I mention the stunning sunsets? But on the Atlantic facing East coast Barbados is rugged, dramatic and altogether different. We took a mini Bajan road trip to check out the sightseeing on the wild side of Barbados.

Seligman, Arizona – Kicks and Kitsch on Route 66

Seligman, Arizona – Kicks and Kitsch on Route 66

Seligman, Arizona on Route 66 was the quirkiest stop on our US Road Trip and a total eye-popper. The longest surviving section of America’s iconic road starts in Seligman and runs 160 miles to Topock, Arizona. It would be wrong to take a US Road Trip without eating up a few miles of tarmac on the Mother Road and Seligman was the perfect stop for Route 66 kicks.

Beyond Vegas – Visiting Hoover Dam

Beyond Vegas – Visiting Hoover Dam

The Hoover Dam sits wedged into Black Canyon, holding back the force of the mighty Colorado River on the Nevada-Arizona border. It’s an incredible feat of engineering built in just five years during the Great Depression. Originally called the Boulder Dam it was constructed to prevent flooding in the area, to help with irrigation in the desert and to generate hydro-electricity. If you’re in Las Vegas, which is less than 35 miles away, visiting Hoover Dam is a must-do day trip.
