My Travel Adventures
In November 2015 I went back to one of my favorite places, Costa Rica! I spent nearly 2 weeks, exploring different areas and visiting resorts. I started on the Caribbean side of the country in Tortugero. This area is known as the Amazon of Costa Rica and is famous for the green sea turtle breeding grounds. Our lodge was only accessible by boat and had we stayed in beautiful little private cabins. Tortugero has canals that are full of wildlife, we saw many species of monkeys, birds, lizards, and even a few Cayman crocodiles. We took a small plane out and stopped next in Arenal. Arenal is known for the Volcano, but there are a lot of adventure activities close by and a nice selection of resorts. After a few days here, we next went to the cloud forest and coffee region of Monteverde. The small town here offers some great street food and is a hikers paradise, but be prepared this place is steep! My trip ended in Manuel Antonio, which is a beautiful beach and jungle area, well known for the wildlife national park that is located just a short walk from the center of town. Every time I come back from Costa Rica, there are more places that I want to go back to, the country is so beautiful, and the people are wonderful. It's a top recommendation, but due to its popularity, currently you need to plan about 9 months in advance for the best selection and closer to a year in advance for holiday travel.
In April 2015 I sailed on the Seine river in France aboard the new Avalon Tapestry II, the Paris to Normandy Landing Beaches itinerary. This itinerary is amazing, full of history, art, and culinary delights! I left a few days before the cruise started to explore Paris and see the sights. I went to the Louvre, Notre Dame, Versailles, Montmartre, the Eiffer Tower and explored many different cafe's, shops and restaurants. Sailing on the Seine was a remarkable journey. You visit wonderful medieval towns, quaint sea side villages, see the gardens of Monet, and experience the history of World War II. Visiting the landing beaches and US Cemetery in Normandy was such a moving and memorable experience, a highlight for me on this trip.
In 2014 I've went to the Sandals Royal Caribbean resort in Montego Bay. I also enjoyed a Western Caribbean cruise aboard the Celebrity Silhouette, which made stops in Jamaica, Haiti and Cozumel, we were also supposed go to the Cayman Islands, but missed it due to a tropical storm. I was lucky enough to experience two fabulous Westin resorts this year, the Westin La Paloma Resort in Tucson and the Westin Diplomat Resort in Hollywood, FL, both amazing properties. The La Paloma sits on a golf course and has a fantastic muti-pool area, tennis courts and of course spa! The Diplomat sits on a beautiful stretch of beach on one side and the Intracoastal Waterway on the other. You have access to a multitude of activities including a two-story fitness studio! I also spent some time in the fall visiting Michigan's northern coast and upper peninsula. No summer would be complete in Montana without a little trip over to Yellowstone and Jackson Hole, WY.
In 2013 I cruised to the Pacific side of Mexico on a short 5 day Baja itinerary that went to Catalina Island and Ensenada. I also went on a Caribbean cruise aboard the beautiful Celebrity Summit. I spent a few days before and after the cruise exploring San Juan, Puerto Rico and on the cruise explored the islands of Barbados, Antigua, St. Lucia, St. John, St. Maarten and St. Thomas - WOW that was a great trip!
My travels have also taken took me to fabulous Costa Rica! I stayed the Guanacaste region and explored the Pacific Coast. I also visited the Monte Verde Cloud Forest, coffee plantations, Arenal Volcano, Tabacon Hot Springs, Palo Verde River, just to name a few!
