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!
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!
Bridges and boardwalks and trees, oh my!
While I would have preferred to get in earlier, it was still a fun experience!
If you find yourself in Vancouver B.C., chances are, you’ll wind up checking out the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. To be frank, this is a tourist attraction (which I tend to shun). However, this was interesting enough to draw us in, and the resulting verdict was that it was worth the visit.

I love the tiny discoveries in a new city. This filled me with a fascination so simple and true… reminding me it’s the little things in life that are worth living for!
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.

Planning a world trip can be daunting but we have to start somewhere. The route is something we have put a lot of thought into, and we’ve made some logical conclusions about how to approach it. It might even take our trip from 12 months to 17. But there is one little thing that could stop us from doing that.
We’re taking a short break this week, but we don’t want to leave you without some fun Norway stories, so here’s one from my photography blog on our visit to Vigeland Park in Oslo. Feel free to follow my travel photography there as well, and we’ll have some new stories for you next week!
At first, we saw only a massive stretch of green lawn, and we were drawn in by the pungent smell of burning coals. This led us to a space buzzing with people. Couples wandered along the expansive path; groups of adolescents sat laughing on stretched-out blankets, a joyful tune emanating from their portable speakers and a beer in their hands.
As we ventured deeper into Vigeland Park, we reached a broad bridge sporting dozens of sculptures on either side.
The first thing I noticed was the sculptures were all unabashedly nude – men, women, children, all completely out in the open. But as I observed the artwork, I was taken aback by the simple beauty of the scenes depicted.

While we were camping most of the time in beautiful Norway, we did also have a few opportunities to marvel at some of the ingenious architecture across the country. And though we saw so little of it, it still made quite the impression!
No, we never kissed a crocodile and don’t ever plan to. We did get the chance to pet one when we went on a crocodile tour down the Tarcoles river in Costa Rica. The tour was an unexpected part of our trip, but those usually are the best kind of adventures. We stopped to go look at the crocodiles from the highway bridge, but as soon as we parked, we were instantly approached by people offering a boat tour down the river. The decision to go wasn’t difficult and it became one of the highlights of our trip. We would highly recommend it if you happen to get down there. It was epic!

We tried to get some pictures of Crater Lake on our first night there. It didn’t work out so well as the snow rolled in. It was cold and very windy. You never truly know what to expect when you attempt to photograph a sunset, but that is part of the adventure, right?
