Picture Perfect Peru
A traveler's journey along the path of the Incas, from Cusco to Machu Picchu. Although everyone prepares you for the physical aspect of the hike, no one prepares you for the visual treat that this Andean hike offers. The trail presents an ever changing landscape of misty mountain peaks, snowcapped glaciers, luminous glacial lakes, waterfalls and …
A Lone Girl's Guide to the Inca Trail
Who knew that trekking the Inca Trail alone with only a guide, and an entourage of 4 porters and 1 cook could be so fabulous?
Craig and Steph Explore the Cultures of Ecuador
We experience the varied local cultures of Ecuador, starting with a 5 night homestay with a family of Kichwa farmers in the highlands of Morochos. Then we spend three nights camping with the jungle-dwelling Kichwa Waira Churi family. During a three day paddle down the Shiripuno River, we learn about the Huaorani culture of the Amazon basin. We …
From the arctic to the equator (Yukon to the Galapagos)
To dream is to be alive! Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed about visiting the Galapagos Islands. Little did I know, that one day I would achieve that dream, not from Montreal where I was born, but from the Yukon, in northern Canada.
My Peruvian Adventure
We toured around Peru from Cusco to Machu Picchu to Lake Titicaca and saw the rich culture and natural beauty of the country and its people. Our Manco Multisport Peru tour included rafting, hiking, biking, boating, kayaking, and a homestay on Lake Titicaca.
An Inca Adventure
My family's rousing jaunt through the Peruvian Andes on the trail of the Inca
Arctic Cruise on the Akademik Ioffe
Arctic Cruise on the Akademik Ioffe: A journey through Spitsbergen, Eastern Greenland & Iceland with a group of 21 students and teachers from the China Association for Scientific Expedition.
An unforgettable adventure as we navigated the cobbled streets of Cusco, climbed to the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, and plunged ourselves into a culture that defines hospitality.
Two Perspectives on Our Galapagos Journey
During the Summer of 2009 I promised my grandson that the following summer, after his high school graduation, I'd take him anywhere in the world as long as he was willing to travel with me. He chose the Galapagos Archipelago.
Discovery and wonder in Costa Rica
I went on a Costa Rica Quest with my family and thought I was just in for a nice vacation. Instead, I was surprised to rediscover - with my kids - the pure joy and wonder of exploration and adventure.
Adventure Pacifica 50th Birthday Tour
We toured with Adventure Life and took the Adventure Pacifica tour. We had a great adventure, met lots of people and stayed in the very nice hotels. Costa Rica is a country rich with diversity lending interest, education and adventure to all.
Expedition to the Top of the World
Departing from Svalbard our Russian ship carried us north to within 600 miles of the North Pole before working its way southward to Greenland and our final destination in Iceland. Our spectacular Arctic cruise was bracketed by visits to old friends in both Norway and Iceland.
Belize Trip - Adventures in Paradise
This spring 2011 my husband and I set off to explore Belize on our custom Adventure's in Paradise Tour. We began by relaxing on the beach in Ambergris. Then we were on to a luxurious stay at Hamanasi Dive Resort to swim with the sea creatures that abound. Finally we ended our Belize tour at Pooks Hill Jungle Lodge with excursions to the ATM Cave …
My Dream Trip to Machu Picchu
My Dream Trip to Machu Picchu: After months of planning and years of dreaming, my grandson, Zed, and I left the Austin airport around noon on Monday, July 12th, for Peru. It was a wonderful trip with no disappointments. Now, where am I going next?
A 14-day variation of Panoramic Peru Trip.....if one wants to gain a deeper understanding of Peruvian culture, the “Panoramic Peru” tour is a great trip. As always with Adventure Life, the local guides are wonderful and they accompany you during the entire trip. I can’t believe we did as much as we did during our two weeks!
Hiking Galapagos - A Walk through time
The words \"Adventure Life\" certainly described this hiking tour of Galapagos. Adventures were had from day 1 through the final return. WHAT FUN!! The animals, people and country was amazing...
Costa Rican Capers and Capuchins
Costa Rica was the perfect place for a perfect find. A book I had bought for my children turned out to be a whimsical tale of a Monkey taking photos of unwilling Rainforest animals. I later realized how similar my own circumstances were!
Alaska has a rainforest?
Yes! The largest temperate rainforest in the world. Little did I know that a cruise in Alaska could also be an adventure. Kayaking, camping, hiking, and swimming with icebergs...this is an adventure of a lifetime aboard the Wilderness Explorer.
Nicaragua dispelled all myths. It is gorgeous, affordable and very safe. Tourism is a relatively new phenomenon, so you pretty much get the country to yourself. Ometepe Island is perhaps my favorite place on earth. Try to spend as much time as you can there!
It takes a long time to get to the Ends of the Earth!
Margy and I were off on another adventure and boy, it takes long to get to the ends of the earth! We had a great time on mainland Chile and Easter Island!
Following in Charles Darwin's footsteps, I will be traveling to Ecuador, from Quito to the Galapagos Islands. I have my trusty backpack, my water shoes, my guide to Ecuador and of course, my camera. (Can't leave home without it). Buen viaje and vamos!
Machu Picchu and the Galapagos for our 10th Anniversary
Celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in beautiful Peru and the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. A trip of a life time!
Pura Vida-Only in Costa Rica
Our honeymoon adventure learning about a new country and learning about each other!
Exploring Ancient Egypt
We had an amazing 4 day cruise down the river on the Nile Adventurer in 2010. Our Egyptologist, Zainab, and the boat staff made the experience a delight! We hope to return soon and experience more of Egypt.
