The last destination I visited (for the second time–yes, I loved it that much) before departing Mexico during my first visit was Isla Mujeres, the Island of Women. Isla Mujeres can be reached by a quick ferry from Cancun island. The small island is famous for its palm fringed beaches, quiet relaxing atmosphere (quite the change from Cancun), and its sunsets. The island of women was the perfect place to relax after busily traveling throughout the three provinces on the peninsula and Belize the month prior. I’m known as quite the “hyperactive traveler”–in fact, I got this name in Mexico from another female traveler from England whom I met during that first solo backpacaking adventure. She couldn’t keep up with me. The name stuck. To this day, I’m still considered a hyperactive busy bee traveler who loves to see it all… Continue reading
The first desert-like climate I ever visited was in Rainbow Beach, Australia. After hiking through the bush to reach the top of the sand blow, I couldn’t believe what my eyes saw. I was standing on a gigantic sand mountain: a desert. As far as I could see it was all sand and the beautiful Australian horizon. To my left I could see the sea and to my right I could see the lush landscape. When I walked to the center of the sand blow I could see nothing but sand in every direction. For a moment, I forgot where I was and thought I was in the middle of the Sahara desert. Continue reading
In honour of Valentines Day, I had the opportunity to tour Sydney, Australia in a red Ferrari. Although I couldn’t be with my love this Valentines Day, I took riding in a fierce red Ferrari as second best.
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.
I saw the perfect sunset on my sail with Adventure Cat on the San Francisco Bay. With most of the days being overcast during my second visit to San Francisco, I was starting to worry that I wouldn’t see a sunset before my departure back to Canada. I tried for days to catch a sunset, but to no avail I was unsuccessful. I was relieved when I set sail on Adventures Cat’s Sunset Sail, because the sun was high in the sky and was starting to set on the cool calm evening. Not a cloud could be spotted. Continue reading
I was amazed by every sunrise and sunset on Oahu, Hawaii. Each time it was different, but each time it took my breath away. Hawaii continued to amaze me. Hawaii is one of the most beautiful places in the world. After hiking the Pillbox in Lanikai for the sunset, I was blessed with this incredible view:
