Skydiving over Oahu’s North Shore

  My bucket list is full of places to visit and things to try, but I have to say that skydiving has always been at the top of it.  While the thought of jumping out of a perfectly good airplane might seem a little crazy, the feeling of freefall is something that has long intrigued me.  What is it like?  Do you feel like you’re falling? flying? or both?     I had often heard that skydiving feels more like you’re floating in air than actually falling and I would agree.  For … [Read More]

Everglades

Airboat Tour through the Everglades

  The Everglades are a natural region of tropical wetlands found in the southern portion of Florida.  The primary feature of the Everglades is the sawgrass prairie which is often referred to as the “river of grass.”     The best way to explore this river of grass is by airboat.  Having a flat-bottomed design in conjunction with no operating parts below the waterline make it ideal for skimming the surface of shallow swamps and marshes.     There are a number of … [Read More]

Ice Skating in Yosemite

Ice skating is always a fun winter activity and at Yosemite National Park it has been a tradition since the 1930s.  The Park's Curry Village offers a very unique skating rink tucked beneath the majestic Half Dome, which is the park's most popular rock formation.  The rink started as a flooded parking lot in 1928 and has been visited by tourists ever since.     When you get tired of skating, you can rest and enjoy the warmth of the outdoor fire pit which is located right … [Read More]

The World’s Biggest IMAX Screen

  Sydney's Darling Harbour is one of the most energetic spots in the city.  It has a number of nice restaurants, a two-story mall, and an amazing view of the Sydney skyline. Another point of interest you'll find there is the World's Biggest IMAX.  A screen towering eight stories high complemented with 15,000 watts of sound make it a theatre like no other.   I was there recently and saw the movie Gravity, which follows two astronauts during a routine spacewalk when disaster strikes. … [Read More]

Booking Your Next Cruise

  Cruise. The mere word can spark a variety of different opinions. But Cruises are slowly becoming a popular way to see the world. Cruises are great for those who absolutely despise traveling in uncomfortable conditions to get to their desired location. They offer a relaxed atmosphere when it comes to “jet setting” around the world. Plus, you can visit multiple destinations in one trip. Sounds great to me! I know Cruises aren’t for everyone but I believe it must be experienced at least … [Read More]
