Red flower on the beach on Playa Zancudo, Costa Rica

Immersed in Nature in Costa Rica

I was inside the house working on my computer, two fans noisily spinning the hot, humid air – one pointed on me, one on the computer, neither doing much to cool the temperature. Kris suddenly appeared at the screened window. In a low voice, he hissed, “Come out here.… Read the rest

Zancudo, Costa Rica: Off the beaten path

Off-the-beaten-path seems to be the latest travel buzz-phrase. Escaping the crowds, finding hidden gems and discovering untouched paradises are as trendy as owning a GoPro. Try as we might, we were beginning to lose hope that such places still existed. Every city we visit – even the ones that aren’t in American travel guidebooks – seems to have a paddle-wielding tour guide.… Read the rest

A bayside walk from Port Melbourne to St. Kilda

While there are plenty of sights, restaurants, architecture and pubs in Melbourne’s city center to keep us busy for weeks, it’s hard to resist a peek at Port Phillip Bay, which is just a short tram ride away.

Perast, Montenegro: A day trip from Kotor

The Bay of Kotor, commonly called Boka Bay, is the largest bay on the Adriatic Sea and Europe’s southernmost fjord. The dramatic mountains plunge into the deep, tranquil waters of the bay.
