This was the most unique dining experience I’ve ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant if you’re willing to try something new; it will change your outlook… pun intended!
Costa Rica is known for their wide array of fauna. From crocodiles to sloths, birds of every color, bugs, frogs, etc., there’s so much to look at and appreciate. While we were there, we went on numerous canopy tours and boat rides, all to catch a glimpse at the elusive wildlife. And Costa Rica delivered.
But which was our favorite animal encounter?
After a trip to Capilano, we had to make our way to the nearby Grouse Mountain. There was so much to discover and more hiking than we had time for. We’ll have to go back sometime!
As most of you know by now, I am a photographer. (If you want to see more of my travel landscape photography, feel free to check it out over at www.lotsasmilesphoto.com.) I love nothing more than a breathtaking scene and I get giddy immortalizing it and its associated memories in pixels. In fact, while I can’t wait to experience some worldwide history and culture, while I long to stand atop some world-renowned trails, and while I’m an incurable foodie, I am most looking forward to the photography opportunities. There’s so much to see; how could I not?
Here are the top items on my photo op bucket list.

If you’re anything like me, a little child still resides in your heart, excited to pop out when the world manages to amaze an experienced and jaded mind. This child oohs and aahs at simple mechanics and perfect patterns, tiny memories of less complicated times.

Stanley Park offers acres of forest to explore, play, and exercise. And the best part? The locals are really friendly and happy to chat you up!
One of the highlights of our brief jaunt in Vancouver was Stanley Park, a vast, 1001-acre public park that dominates the peninsula north of downtown Vancouver. It’s mostly old, dense forest (many trees are hundreds of years old), and it features bike paths and trails spidering throughout. It’s understandably a popular destination for daily exercisers.

Welcome to 2019. THE year. We have finally arrived. We have earned the right to say we are leaving to travel the world THIS YEAR. That’s exhilarating and terrifying. Being on this side of the year makes all the difference, as it’s finally beginning to feel real. We’re doing this. And there’s still so much to do!
Switching gears once more, we thought we’d give you a taste of our adventures in another place: Vancouver, BC. A long drive, a beautiful city, and a midnight fire scare.. welcome to Vancouver!
We’re toning back a bit on our blogging, as we’re now in crunch time before we leave for our big trip! Therefore, enjoy full posts every other week, with quick travel highlights like these in the alternates. Let us know what you think! We’d love to know what your favorites are!
We had so much incredible food in Japan; how could we pick just one favorite? While we loved the comforting ramen and drooled over the extravagant ryokan breakfast, one restaurant rose to the top, and it still makes my stomach grumble at the thought of it.
