There is a somewhat brutal tradition in Canada’s Vancouver, B.C., and that challenge is called the Grouse Grind. If you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about, the Grouse Grind is a brutal ascent up Grouse Mountain on foot.
I wanted to highlight five places in Vegas that I think are definitely worth checking out. I would also like to note that none of these are located on the strip, so you’ll have to venture out and explore new areas of the city to discover them. Trust me…it’s worth it.
We can’t all travel all the time. I wish we could! However, that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun lives full of new and exciting experiences, relaxing getaways, and fun filled weekends. I tend to lean heavily on the staycation as a means to get me through the boring parts of life between “real” travel experiences.
When you think of Hiroshima, Japan, the images that come to mind are that of that horrible day during World War 2 when my country dropped an atomic bomb on it. Since I was spending time in Kyoto and could reasonably do a day trip to Hiroshima via the Shinkansen, I wanted to pay my respects and learn a little more about the history of this place.
I’m happy to announce a guest post today! Today’s post was written by Elena from http://www.atlantisgozo.com. Elena is an avid traveler, adventurer, and blogger. She has written about scuba diving off the islands of Malta and Gozo for us today. I hope you enjoy her post, and definitely check out her site if you get the chance!
On a recent trip to Cabo San Lucas, I spent one of the days of my excursion relaxing at the Breathless All Inclusive Resort. Normally at an all-inclusive, you need to be a guest at the hotel, but the awesome thing about Breathless was that they had a day pass. I of course had to investigate. For….research, of course.
Ok, so it’s not summertime at the moment, but I wanted to put this out there for you now so you’ll have plenty of time to think about it and get prepared before Summer arrives. I just found out that the state of Alaska recruits tons of people to come work seasonally every summer in their tourism and commercial fishing industries. There aren’t usually enough Alaskans to fill all the positions, so those of us from the lower 48 (and Hawaii) are in luck!
Someday, sometime in my life, I will go on this train journey. Until then, I can dream on this Wanderlust Wednesday.
What’s better than a trip to Costa Rica?
A trip to Costa Rica with a visit to the sloth sanctuary!
I couldn’t really continue writing this blog without doing a post about Harry Potter travel destinations.
