It has been a long time since we posted to our blog. But 2017 will bring many chronicles of our Trip of a Lifetime… South Africa! We were very lucky that we wrung out 2016 and wrung in 2017 in stunning South Africa. From city to safari to beaches, we saw it all.
On Wednesday we are embarking on a Spring adventure to the United Kingdom. We are really excited about it. We have been to London and the Cotswolds once before. But we are going to visit some of the other places that we didn’t get a chance to see the first time. As you can see by the map below…. we are starting in Cornwall, making our way up to Scotland to see Edinburgh, Fort Williams, Isle of Skye then coming back down and spending some time in the Lake District and finally hanging out in London for a bit.

Not far from where we were staying in Ucluelet, British Columbia is a lovely trail called the Wild Pacific Trail. Not to be confused with the longer and more popular West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island.
One of the things I like to do the most when travelling is taking road trips. Road trips allow you to see things that you wouldn’t get to see if you stayed in a major city hub. You can travel at your own pace, stop whenever you want, and spend more or less time at a location. This is one of the major reasons we often try to see things independently without a tour group.
When we visited Arizona and Utah we were treated to some really nice scenery. Here are a few of the photos I was able to capture while on our road trip. I was surprised at the beauty of the landscapes in Arizona about a couple hours beyond the Grand Canyon.
About 50 minutes from Victoria, BC on Vancouver Island is the city of Duncan. I had researched the Pacific Northwest Raptors a while back and knew that this was something that I wanted to see. I mean, who doesn’t want to see birds of prey!!!
We were lucky that we went on a weekday in early September because I imagine it gets really busy in the summer. There were many exhibits around the site, but what I was really looking forward to was the bird show. I’ve never seen one and spend so much time watching nature shows, I was very excited.
The Grand Canyon is one of the most spectacular places that I’ve been to. We drove out from Vegas and it took a little over 4 hours to get there. If you are into wildlife, landscapes and natural wonders you must visit this place at least once in your lifetime.
Zion National Park is a place that I have wanted to visit for a long time. I’ve seen so many pictures and read so many stories that I knew that this was a unique place that couldn’t be missed. I’m going to do another post on “The Zion Narrows”, so check back in a few days for that one. Continue reading →
