This Christmas Season I am Thankful for…

Puerto Rico

Vieques, Puerto Rico

Last year before Christmas, I tried to keep it a secret from Santa that I abandoned the cold Canadian winter weather for warmer climates south of the border. Yes, that’s right, I ran to Puerto Rico as quickly as possible. I didn’t stay there the entire Christmas season (even though I wanted to), I returned home just in time (December 24th in fact) for Santa to find me back where I belong–on Canadian soil. This year, as much as I am longing for warmer weather, I am happy to say that I am celebrating the Christmas season right where I belong–in Canada. Continue reading

Puerto Rico’s Secret Turquoise Treasure

ViequesI spent over two weeks on the sunny and tropical island of Puerto Rico in 2013. The tranquil and humid island welcomed me as if it was my home. I think I was meant to have been born in a tropical destination; It’s in my blood. Based on my travels throughout the Northern and Eastern parts of Puerto Rico, I fell in love with one particular area: Vieques!

I recently spent over two weeks on the sunny and tropical island of Puerto Rico during one of the coldest months of the year-December.

I think I was meant to have been born in a tropical destination; It’s in my blood. Based on my travels throughout the Northern and Eastern parts of Puerto Rico, here are my favorite 15 sights:

El Yunque National Forest

Puerto Rico The El Yunque National Forest (Bosque Nacional del Caribe) watches over the beaches and towns that line the coast. The tropical rain forest has miles of hiking trails, look out towers, stunning waterfalls, and exotic flora and fauna. As much as I love the beach, I also love visiting the forest. Not to mention, I got a pretty spectacular view of the coast line from El Yunque Mountain. There is nothing better then being outdoors whether it be on a beach or in the forest. Continue reading

The Sunrises and Sunsets of Puerto Rico

After looking at many of the pictures I’ve posted on my blog, Facebook page, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram a friend informed me that he noticed my interest (or obsession rather) with the sky and the horizon. I guess he has a valid point! I love taking pictures of sunrises and sunsets! Second to the beach, I’ve always had an interest in taking pictures of the skyline. In every destination that I visit, I make an attempt to see at least one sunrise and one sunset. Yet, by the end of trip I’ve seen at least a half a dozen or so.
