Kauai, Hawaii

Day 1-3: It’s amazing how much you can cram into a day while in Kauai. We’ve only been here two and a half days and already we’ve boogie-boarded three times, drove ATVs in the wilderness on a ranch, took a surf lesson, and did a 3 1/2 mile hike around Waimea Canyon. Truly spectacular! I’ll …

British Virgin Islands, The Caribbean

Happy New Year! We brought in 2022 in my happy place… traveling internationally with family and underwater. We got home late Tuesday night after spending 8 days with my in-laws on a catamaran in the British Virgin Islands… a trip that has been on my father-in-law’s bucket list for a long time. The week flew …

Galapagos Islands, Diving

For a year that was expected to have little, if any, travel, I’ve somehow managed to go on three big trips for which I am truly grateful. We just got back from a week spent scuba diving in the Galápagos Islands, with our friends, Emily and Jeff. For someone who loves both marine biology and …

Grand Turk Island, The Caribbean

It’s a tradition after 8th grade to go on a trip with mom. I rafted the Grand Canyon with Josh and I just got back from a week with Tyler scuba diving on the island of Grand Turk. I wasn’t going to post seeing as this certainly wasn’t “essential” travel, but these videos are my …

Athens and Greek Islands

Thousands of years old, a cruise ship, and 39 friends. That was our trip in a nutshell: a whirlwind visit to a really interesting country with an amazing group of people…all to celebrate our friend Patty’s 70th birthday. Here are the highlights, including my travel video -Walking the old marble pedestrian streets in the Plaka …

Grand Canyon, USA

It’s been two days since Josh and I returned from a week of rafting the Grand Canyon. While it’s been glorious being able to shower in water warmer than 52 degrees and use a flushing toilet instead of a bucket, it’s been an adjustment being back in the connected world after 6 days without cell …

South Island, New Zealand

I bungee jumped…. twice! Yes, you read that right. Debra, who is terrified of heights and has cried through more than one high ropes course, actually bungee jumped tandem with Josh (then returned to jump with Sydney three days later!) It was scary, but exhilarating…..way less scary overall than doing a high ropes course for …

Fiji

Day 1-3 Bula from Fiji! Bula is the Fijian greeting for “hello” or “welcome”. Everywhere we go, we are met with a friendly smile and a huge “BULA!!” As promised, here’s the first video from our time at Castaway Island in Fiji. See my previous post from this morning for most of the details…. our …
