Imagine swimming with sea lions and being surrounded by magnificent sharks as you snorkel in pristine waters. Or witness a marine iguana feeding on a corral reef while sea turtles float lazily by. The Galapagos Islands are one of the most unique ecosystems in the entire world. When taking an Intrepid Travel Tour to this [...]
A majority of tourists that visit London this year will head straight for the typical tourist hot spots such as The London Eye or Buckingham Palace. Little do they know is that there is so much more to this amazing city than Prince Harry’s crown jewels, The River Thames and pigeons. If you are coming [...]
Adventure travel is taking over the world and increasingly people are adding an element of excitement to their travels. When people visit a destination, they want experiences. The profile of a traveler is changing and the attitude of a traveler is changing with it. Gone are the days when polar expeditions or mountain summits were [...]
When you think of the beach, you automatically think of palm trees, golden sand, and crashing waves. But, have you ever imagined a red beach or lying in the sand and having hot water from hot springs come rushing up beneath you? Or how about a beach where you can see the sun rise and [...]
As the end of the year approaches, we always like to flashbacks share funny videos and put out “Best of” posts. So keeping with our tradition, we’re sharing another top experience with you. The Best of America highlights the top locations we’ve visited in the country over the past four years. We have a lot [...]
The end of the year is quickly approaching and you know what that means? It’s time for round ups and top 10’s. For Dave and I, the adventures are over until 2013 so as we enjoy relaxing moments in front of the fire, catching up on films and reading a good book, we have been [...]
Bond… James Bond While we were back in Canada last week, we happened to be home for the debut of Skyfall, the latest James Bond movie with Daniel Craig. We both agree, he’s the best James Bond ever and while I was watching the movie, I started to think about all the cool Bond Locations [...]
We’ve been flying a lot these days and the more we fly, the more we notice little quirks about airline travel that make no sense to us. All the rules and regulations are a mystery. Why do airlines do what they do and why do people seem to lose all common sense when flying. Each [...]
We’ve had the opportunity to do some very cool city tours during our around the world travels. We’ve taken some cool motorbike tours in Vietnam, walking tours in New Zealand and we had a lot of walkabouts in China during our tour with Intrepid Travel. But it was this past year that we had the [...]
Travel creates memories to last a life time, in our case it’s our adventure travels that stand out and here are our 3 most memorable moments.
We first heard about Locked up Abroad while travelling in Jamaica. Our travel mates were chatting about all the different ways that clueless tourists manage to get themselves thrown in jail. I couldn’t believe the stories and just had to see this TV series for myself. When we returned home, we caught a few episodes [...]
Our top choices for water sports around the world. From Kayaking in Antarctica to Canyoning in Jordan these adventures are something for everyone.
Tonight at 8:30 pm nations around the world will be taking part in Earth Hour to take a stand against climate change. Started by the WWF in Australia, it has grown immensely since 2007 to become a global initiative.
Travel without trying new food is like Angelina and Brad flying without a brood of children in tow. It just isn’t right. That is why tasting delectable dishes during our journeys around the world is the most important part of our day!
It is a dream to think that we have made it to both Alaska and Antarctica in 2 years time. But with a little luck and a lot of hard work, we have managed to make our dreams come true.
Hostel Bookers is running a game of photo tag and were kind enough to include us in their inaugural post. I love going back through photographs that I haven’t looked at recently. Each one tells a story and reminds me of a precious moment in time.
Wow, can you believe it’s nearly 2012? This has been a short Christmas season, it seems shorter than usual with Christmas and New Years falling on a Sunday. It seems like the holidays just got started and they are already coming to and end! We are home for the holidays this year and as we [...]
As I sit down to write this 2011 Adventure Travel Round up, I am in shock and awe that we really did all these things in a span of 365 days. We just lived a year of adventure travel that I never thought I would have the opportunity to ever do in my life
There aren’t a lot of countries that we go back to again and again. Actually we realized that we have only re-visited 3 countries again and again. Mexico, Thailand and France keep calling us back.
We’ve seen a lot of amazing ruins of the world. But as I go through all that there is yet to see I find that we have barely scratched the surface. We have yet to see Easter Island, Stonehenge or The Acropolis and we may never see any of the great structures of Afghanistan or Iraq. However [...]
