Coming Soon

Adventures plus Locations Coming Soon

Adventures - Overlooking Cuenca, EcuadorTravel adventures is the focus of our retirement (although I am still working). Since we have no children, it is easy to can away and fulfill our wanderlust for 3-4 months per year.

It’s not like this is a new hobby for us. We have traveled often in the last 20 years.  We gathered lots of tips to share from our Adventures on the places we have visited around the world.

In addition, we are working through our bucket list from here forward.  Sign up for the blog and follow us to learn more about all of the great locations we’ve investigated and tried — read about everything from the great finds, deals, out of the way places that are a ‘must-see’ to the places to stay away from.  You’ll see what we saw in our photos.  Visit us here often.

In 2015 and 2016, we visited Ecuador, and did 8 diverse trips within the tiny country.  I am still writing about the places to see.

In 2017, our Adventure took us to Australia and New Zealand, and the South Pacific.

Feel free to ask us about any of our Adventures to any of these places even if we haven’t published a blog post yet…

  1. Based on your suggestion we just booked a trip to Mexico and are staying at the Akumal Beach and Wellness Resort. Thanks for the insights.

    Our next question is related to transportation. We want to be able to see ruins and do cave snorkeling. What has been your experience with renting a car versus public transportation?

  2. Glad that my suggestions were helpful. We have always used the ‘Collectivo’ – local minibus transport. While you ride with the locals, it is only a couple of dollars pp to ride, and they know where they are going. We took it to the entrance of Dos Oyoes (caves), and to the entrance to Tulum. We loved the snorkeling at Akumal Beach so much that we only left the area 3 times 1) to caves 2) Tulim 3) Snorkel where the salt and fresh water meet (we took a taxi for this, as it is close to Akumal Beach and not on the Collectivo route). Please let us know how your trip goes.
