Travelling across Canada - a trip down memory lane!

We call Canada our home, but have you actually ventured out from your own back yard to really see what this amazing country has to offer? Nearing the end of Canada’s 150th birthday, I feel like a little trip down memory lane is in order… When I was 19 my girlfriend and I took the trip of a lifetime and drove across this amazing land. When I say drove across I mean drove across from sea to sea! We started our journey in Vancouver and headed north past Prince George along a looong gravel road to the magical Liard Hot Springs.  Skip the touristy pool, go at night and take the extra hike to the n...

Viva Las Vegas

Luck Be a Lady, Leaving Las Vegas, Sin City.  How many songs have been written about this town in the middle of the desert??!!  ??!!  I hadn’t been in Vegas for a few years and each time I go there is something else that has changed.  It is an ever evolving city that presents its patrons with something new each time. You could go every year and there will be something different and new to do.  New hotels, new attractions, new shows.   I did not stay at a new hotel but rather the Venetian.  Both the Venetian and Palazzo are “luxury suite” hotels.  Each suite is probably double the size of a re...

What did I get myself into?

I remember it well… sitting on my parents’ patio in Johannesburg, listening to my uncle tell stories of his adventures around the world. He owned a large travel agency in Germany, and was escorting a small group of clients on yet another African Safari. His life seemed so interesting as he regaled us with his travel experiences in exotic places like Asia, South America and Australasia.  I was mesmerized and inspired, and then it hit me – this was what I wanted to do too! My graduation gift was a ships’ passage from South Africa to England, and so I packed up my belongings in one of those huge...

Two days in Quepos!

This year, in May, I visited the small town of Quepos, Costa Rica while on a G Adventures Tour.  It was our first stop on a 16 day multi-destination trip, and a wonderful way to start the adventure. Quepos (pronounced Kay-POS) is located on the Pacific Coast, about a 5- hour bus ride from San Jose.  One of the highlights of this area is Manuel Antonio National Park, it is located about 7 kms away from the town of Quepos. Manuel Antonio National Park is home to some very beautiful beaches and is rich in biodiversity. It’s also a very popular place to visit, so it’s really best to get there ear...
