The following is an article written by fellow blogger, Derek Cullen. He’s traveled all over Africa and as you will read he’s quite passionate about organizing and offering great day tours.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
Travel will change the way you see the world
Riding a bicycle through Africa was to be the most profound experience that would change everything about Continue reading Organizing day tours
A few years back the opportunity to move to Austin presented itself and we took a leap of faith by leaving Montreal, our hometown, the place where we grew-up and lived all our lives. It wasn’t an easy decision to make with our family and friends there, but the opportunity was a good one and it opened up many doors for us. The lure of moving somewhere new and discovering a new city as well as living in a warmer climate was certainly appealing. Looking back Continue reading Austin, Texas – Things to do & places to go
Going scuba diving is like traveling to a foreign land, off the beaten path, where only a few lucky ones get to visit. There are approximately 6 million certified divers in the world, which represents less than 0.1% of the world’s population (7.4 billion) Continue reading Scuba diving break
Hurricanes have a way to mess with people’s travel plans. They also stir-up the ocean floor hindering visibility for scuba divers. On the upside, they can also unearth buried treasure, shifting around wrecks and moving sand around at the oceans bottom perhaps exposing long lost treasures for someone to find. Not long ago Continue reading Post hurricane diving – Hunting for treasure
On a whim after seeing flights from Miami for just over 100$ return we decided to visit Puerto Rico. This was our first time here and as a US territory it is simple to get to. Miami had literally a dozen direct flights daily and the short 2.5-hour flight was a breeze. We enjoyed seeing the aqua blue beaches off the Bahamas from our plane window. One day we’re going to take a little excursion there as well. Continue reading A few days around San Juan, Puerto Rico
The day after Hurricane Matthew went by, things had already calmed down and we went down to the beach to do some cleanup. Surprisingly we found little trash on the beach considering all the waves and winds whipping things around the previous day. The ocean must have sucked it all back in as it receded. We expect that Continue reading N.A.T.|Post hurricane beach cleanup
This was a bucket list trip for me, as I had dreamed of going on safari for a very long time. My love and admiration of Big Cats went as far back as my childhood and the idea of getting close to these majestic animals was exhilarating. Here I was years later on my way to Africa to embark on an amazing journey that would change me forever. Continue reading On safari, a dream come true!
N.A.T. = Neighbors Against Trash
Ever since I first heard about sea turtles dying because they ate plastic I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Did you know they eat it thinking it’s jellyfish and can later die because they swallowed a man-made indigestible and toxic substance? The ingested plastic can also block their digestive track and as a result they
become buoyant and can no longer dive to feed. Continue reading N.A.T. | Beach cleanup initiative
Last week, my brother was visiting and as an avid diver himself we were keen to take him out to explore some the local dive spots. Unfortunately, we had a distant hurricane “Hermine” stirring up the ocean and wind and waves were bad enough to interfere with our plans. One good thing that did come out of our attempts to get in the water was that we discovered a new Continue reading South Florida diving – our new backyard
Following our escapade in Normandy we returned to Paris for a few days. It was our third visit (in 15 years mind you) so much of this was just to go back to familiar haunts and get some fresh pictures of our favorites including the Notre-Dame, Sainte-Chapelle, Pantheon, Sacré-Coeur, Arc de Triomphe, and of course the Eiffel Tower.
We walked over 10 miles a day doing well over 20,000 steps but despite our sore feet just immersed ourselves in the city and its bridges and quaint little environs. We even Continue reading A few days in Paris
