Running Out Of Runway

Here’s the thing. When you step up, step out, and try, you never really know how it’s going to turn out. Truth is, we’ve been struggling for a while. We’re not making enough money, our ideas continue to fall flat, and the long term outlook doesn’t suggest that continuing to push through is the answer. [...]

A Yoga Convert

Dynamic Retreats

Just like dating, it all comes down to time and place. You can date the biggest a$$hole for months on end because you have nothing better to do, and you can let a gem go by because it just wasn’t the right time. That’s how it’s been with yoga and I. We’ve dated on and [...]

El Coco Loco Resort, Nicaragua

El Coco Loco Resort, Nicaragua

It’s the story of a place that often holds the most appeal. Much like my infatuation with the Cave Lodge in Northern Thailand, El Coco Loco drew me in with their story of friendship and commitment to a vision. As three Canadian college boys, Jamie, Earl, and Ben travelled together experiencing the world and dreaming [...]

Nothing To See Here

Comfortable Office

Travel blogs usually focus on the happy or crazy adventures. Sometimes there might be social media gloating with fabulous beach picture while the folks back home shovel snow. Let’s face it, people don’t want to read tedious stories without some form of entertainment. Even the disaster stories can grip an audience because we all have [...]

There Are Rules And Then There Is Amsterdam

Cafe

The Netherlands has been a small country that gets noticed much more than one should expect with just under 17 million people. From financing some of the early European colonialism adventures in the 17th century to a hub for many travellers heading to, leaving from or just passing through modern Europe. At the heart of [...]

Volcano Boarding at Cerro Negro, Nicaragua

Volcano Boarding at Cerro Negro, Nicaragua

Would you strap a plywood board to your ass and hurtle down an active volcano at breakneck speed? When I found out that volcano boarding was a ‘thing’ here in Nicaragua I just knew that my adrenalin addicted self was going to HAVE to do it! Cerro Negro is just one volcano in a whole [...]

Settling In To Granada, Nicaragua

Settling In To Granada, Nicaragua

We’ve been here in Granada, Nicaragua for 6 weeks now. I know, time flies. It is turning out to be just what I needed. We’ve settled into a beautiful, colonial house directly across from one of the oldest churches in town. I love sitting and listening to the Spanish hymns as they float down into [...]

Hike to El Mirador Volcan Santiaguito, Guatemala

El Mirador Volcan Santiaguito Hike

It started, as most volcano hikes do, in the dark. I was excited. Seeing an active volcano is on my not-a-bucket-list and today we were going to have the opportunity to see a real, live, smoking volcano. As the day dawned, we were already halfway to the mirador, or lookout. We stumbled into this meadow [...]

Adios Playa del Carmen! We Won’t Be Back.

My Mexican dreams were awash with early morning runs on the beach, margaritas with new friends in the evenings, and a chance to really settle down and get to know a place. Playa del Carmen was not the place of my Mexican dreams. Filled with all inclusive resorts, pumping restaurants, and expensive shops it’s a [...]

One Giant Funk

Island

I’m in a funk. I’m struggling and can’t seem to get a handle on why. I’ve been feeling it rise for quite some time but have been unable to stem the tide. I feel so far away from everything I want to feel and, right now, it feels more like a Giant Chasm than a [...]

Worst Travel Day Yet

WorstTravelDay

We left Ireland, and Europe, a little wistfully. Our final two weeks in Laytown had been perfect; filled with nothing more than early morning walks along the beach, afternoon pints at the small local pub, plenty of cat cuddling (well, as much as he would endure anyway), and meals that we actually cooked ourselves. It [...]
