The Sunshine of the Costa Brava Region

Costa Brava Region

Costa Brava Region

 

Before we planned this trip I had never heard of this Northeastern region in Spain. It wasn’t until I read a couple blog posts I was convinced this was a place we needed to see. A couple hours north of Barcelona is Costa Brava. Bringing it up in conversation I was surprised how few people usually go to this region. This is easily one of the most picturesque places I have visited. Continue reading

5 Reasons Why We Love Hiking

1. Nature
When you make an effort to get out on a trail you are rewarded by being surrounded by some amazing nature. Forests, mountain tops, Sea lines, Canyons are just a few of the areas that we have hiked through. Each area has its own unique flavour and no two areas in the world are ever replicated. That is mother natures gift to us. All we have to do is get out and enjoy it and make sure that humans don’t destroy it.

The Scenic Grand Canyon

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.

Hiking the Zion Narrows

The Narrows is one of the most popular hikes in Zion National Park. I’ve seen many videos on You Tube and I was inspired to try it out. Unlike all of the other hikes that we have done, this hike would be through the water. Unique with a strong hint of challenge…right down our alley.

Clayoquot Sound: A kayak trip to remember

Our kayak adventure started in the picturesque town of Tofino.  The small town of Tofino is located on Vancouver Island in Clayoquot Sound.  If you ever find yourself on Vancouver Island, make it a priority to visit Tofino.  Tofino is a must.  Even more make sure you take a kayak trip.  We signed up for our tour with Black Bear Kayak.  Our tour guide TJ was awesome.  Kayaking and hiking with him felt like hanging out with an old friend.  He was also very knowledgeable about the trees and plants on our hiking trip.  We highly recommend this tour.
