Road Tripping: Hudson River Valley – Part 1

October 23, 2014

We spent two days driving up and down the Hudson River Valley trying to see all that we could see. The valley was beautiful with rolling hills blanketed in trees and a river carving its way through the whole thing. The list of possible activities from hiking to art galleries and food choices from schnitzel to wineries were endless. Rain trailed us for a fair amount of time on our journey, but we didn’t let it deter us. Below are some of our favorites. read more

Walking in the Cloud Forest at Machu Picchu

October 16, 2014

Machu Picchu was built by the Incas in the cloud forest around 1450 and was abandoned during the Spanish Conquest around a century later. It sits on a peak in the Peruvian Andes some 7,970 feet above sea level and 50 miles northwest of Cusco. One of the most interesting draws to Machu Picchu is that it stood unknown to the outside world until 1911 when it was brought to its attention by the American historian Hiram Bingham. Now it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was recently voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in a worldwide Internet poll. You can freely hike up to the Sun Gate and all around Machu Picchu with your ticket into the park. read more

A Day in Lively Provincetown, MA

October 9, 2014

Breakfast: We started our day in Yarmouth on the island of Cape Cod, and planning to spend the day in Provincetown, first thing we did was fuel up on the way. That is where The Red Cottage Restaurant of Dennis, Ma comes in. A local and tourist favorite alike, the cottage only takes cash and draws the crowds for good reason, ridiculously tasty food. I continued my quest for the world’s greatest French toast and sampled their French Toaster Foster, and if you are after a hint of banana liqueur with your breakfast, this is the route for you. read more

Flying “The Beast” in Toro Verde, PR.

September 30, 2014

While in Puerto Rico we decided to try out some ziplining. Naturally that meant only one thing, The Beast. It is the highest zipline in the world and the longest and fastest in the western hemisphere. They were offering a package deal, that included transportation to and from our hotel, lunch and an 8 run zipline canopy tour thru the park with the finale being “The Beast”. How can you pass it up?!? read more
