Joshua Tree – National Park

Joshua Tree – National Park

One of our favorite activities while in Hawaii was star gazing and we had another opportunity to star gaze when we decided to visit Joshua Tree National Park. We were just going to make a two day trip out of the visit and planned to camp in our rental car. We rented a hatchback and bought an inflatable bed that fit in the back of the flatbed hatchback. It actually looked pretty nice and cozy. The weather would be on…

Ghost Hunting on the Queen Mary – Room B340

Ghost Hunting on the Queen Mary – Room B340

Lucy and I have always wanted to ghost hunt and especially on the Queen Mary. On our previous trip to the Queen Mary, we heard and experienced some interesting things like smelling smells and hearing noises that weren’t there or had no source. The Queen Mary now operates as a hotel and one of the most haunted sites on the ship is room B340. It was so haunted, or the guests experienced so many things, that the room was closed…

Hawaii | Big Island

Hawaii | Big Island

Our trip started with the volcano on the island becoming active and the National Park shutting down but the island is so large that you still have so many activities to do. On this visit we were staying on the Kona side and away from the Volcano four four days and four nights. The one advantage of the volcano being active is that the island, activities, and beaches were less crowded.  This was a first visit to the big island…

Hawaii | Kauai

Hawaii | Kauai

Back in Kauai for a six-day stay and the first thing we do once we get off the airplane is go to Duke’s on Kalapaki Beach.  The food here never disappoints and the view of the beach is breathtaking. We had the macadamia crusted ahi, calamari, and fish and chips. This place also has the best lava flow on the island. What makes this spot great is after eating you can walk down the path to one of the most…

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls

I didn’t think we would spend as much time as we did but this place was amazing and the falls are spectacular and powerful. Make sure to dress warm or bring some covering for all the misting. American Falls The sheer power and strength from the winds that are created is enough to realize that this place is special.On the right days the mists will create several rainbows throughout the area. The national park itself has several observation points to…

Quebec – Montreal | Road Trip

Quebec – Montreal | Road Trip

Quebec City Lucy got sick during this part of the trip so we didn’t do as much as we had planned and the area is way too cold in November. Visit before November or after but never in November as it is apparently insanely cold according to the locals. Speaking of the locals they were nothing short of amazing. Warm, inviting, kind and I truly fell in love with the people and the city. Being a mainly french speaking province…
