Discover Costa Rica Tour
Costa Rica translated means “rich coast” and for our family adventure it was priceless. Sharing experiences and discoveries in the mountains, jungles, and beaches, made memories that will truly last a lifetime.
Passport to Patagonia
What a breathtakingly beautiful area Patagonia is! It is a land of contrasts: with flat arid plains around Puerto Madryn and Peninsula Valdez and its penguin colonies and Estancias, to the awesome glaciers and otherworldly rock formations of El Calafate near the central western border of Argentina. At its southernmost tip are the enormous craggy …
Chile: Patagonia and Atacama
Patagonia W route trek and Atacama Desert extension: How to sum up this trip? Of course it was a chance to see spectacular scenery, meet new people, and experience a different culture. Being open to learning about such things, knowing I will also learn more about myself, is what makes adventure travel so rewarding. Also, it's way fun.
Memories of the Falkland Islands, South Georgia & Antarctic
We were on board the holiday 2011 sailing of L'Austral with stops on the Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island, Antarctica, the South Shetland Islands and Cape Horn.
Galapagos Rolfing Family Trip
Rolfing family trip to the Galapagos: after a whirlwind tour of quito, my family (my parents, brother and my husband) boarded a flight to the land of the unknown... a land we had dreamed about since our last south american family adventure in the early 90's. none of us knew what to expect but we were filled with excitement as we realized we were …
Machu Picchu By Train
July 2011 Trip to Peru: A fabulous Machu Picchu adventure and top shelf culinary tastebud explosion.
When my wife and I finally went to Antarctica in November on the Ocean Nova, a “Quark” ship that carried us and 62 other passengers, it was the highlight of the year, if not a lifetime (well not yet!).
Belize - Hamanasi
Our Belize trip to Hamanasi. A fun week of relaxing adventure in tropical luxury. Got up before dawn to watch the sun rise over Hamanasi's beach. Spent all morning just sitting on the beach and soaking in the warm moist air. Wanted to stay forever...
Nicaragua: Volcanoes, Beaches, and Fireworks
2011 ended with a big finish! We explored a land we never imagined we'd visit, yet found to be amazing at every turn. Nicaragua is a land of many contrasts: colonial cities, active volcanoes, and cloud forest canopies. We visited La Isla de Ometepe, our very own \"Christmas Island\" and ended the year on the Pacific beaches surrounding …
Costa Rica, Mountains and Beaches
My husband and I went on a Costa Rica tour with Adventure Life this fall. We experienced first class Eco-tourism at its best - great accommodations, helpful staff, yummy local food and plenty of activities!
Awesome Argentina Tour
It began as a whim or perhaps more a dream as 3 long time colleagues acknowledged the effects of aging on their bodies but not on their spirits or sense of adventure. WE MUST do an adventure while we are all able and willing, they declared. So despite anxiety regarding care for their three aging mothers during this adventure, the dreaming and …
Adventures in Peru
An amazing journey through Peru with two old friends, two new friends, and a jaguar!
Belize Student Volunteer Trip
Pacific Ridge School takes a trip to Belize. The students stayed outside San Ignacio, Belize at Pooks Hill Jungle Lodge. They spent time cave tubing, hiking in Cockcomb Wildlife Sanctuary, exploring ancient Maya ruins, and volunteering at a local children's home.There were 12 students from Pacific Ridge School (Carlsbad, CA) on this Belize trip. …
Our Amazing Mediterranean Honeymoon Cruise on the Wind Surf
Our honeymoon cruise started in Istanbul, where we spent a few days before boarding our ship, the Wind Surf. From Istanbul, we cruised the gorgeous Mediterranean, stopping at Turkish towns and Greek islands along the way. We had blue skies and warm temperatures all the way to our final destination of Athens!
Bogota is a high altitude city with a 500+ year history involving Spain and Europe. Of interest is the fact that the Colombian government is the most friendly to the USA of all South American countries. We saw evidence of progress in many facets of the country. The flag represent their history and culture: yellow for the gold mined, blue for the …
Machu Picchu Pilgrimage+Manu+Lake Titicaca
Our idea for this trip started with seeing Machu Picchu, but soon, trekking the Inca Trail became integrally important to the purpose of the trip. Dave & I are in our late 50’s. We hike, just not real fast. We were extremely pleased at how personalized the entire trip was, especially the trek. We're also not much group tour people, but …
Machu Picchu Anniversary Trip
We celebrated our 25th anniversary and Machu Picchu's 100th anniversary!
Our Adventures in Peru
During the summer of 2011, we began planning for our trip to Peru. The Adventure Life travel agency of Missoula, Montana, specializing in Central and South American travels, was selected as we endorsed their philosophy of utilizing local lodging, transportation and guides, maintaining small groups, and being ecologically responsible. Our tour …
Laurie Allread Antarctica Travel Blog
I started 2010 with a trip to Peru, Chile and Argentina with my two good friends Kelsey Quam and Cassie Meyer. We explored the Sacred Valley and southern deserts of Peru, the beaches of Chile, Buenos Aires and the mountain ranges of Patagonia. We did it all with no set plan, only a great sense of adventure and frequent encouragement for being …
Swimming with pink dolphins, climbing trees, and cruising the Rio Negro in Amazonia.
Most Magnificent Pair: Manu and Machu Picchu
Falkland Islands Tour
Falkland Islands tour come true. It was a truly amazing tour! Actually it was a spiritual adventure in some ways and this was made possible by the warmth and friendship of all the people we met in the Falklands. I can't say enough about this tour to adequately say how much it meant to us. We didn't realize how moving the whole experience was until …
Mother and Son in Costa Rica
I took my animal loving, adventurous, knowledge-thirsty son to Costa Rica for a week this summer -- we had the time of our lives. Most of the time we were too busy living our adventures to stop and take a picture -- a night hike through the rainforest with sloths, tarantulas, and vipers, watching giant sea turtles lay eggs, a boat safari, river …
