Continued from here My last full day on the island, and the last chance to really explore – time to check out a volcano (again!) The Big Island has its fair share of them, and while the Volcano National Park is the most active, Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea are much taller. And like the […]Read More Hawaii, Hawaii, USA – Pt8.
One of the great things about working in the tourism industry is low seasons. Plenty of holiday time, and it’s usually a pretty cheap time to travel. I managed to get a break away from Canada just before Spring Break in the USA, and did my usual search to find the cheapest place I could […]Read More Maui, Hawaii, USA – Pt1
Continued from here. Valladolid may have my destination, but the best thing about travelling, and staying in hostels, talking to other backpackers, is that you hear of new places, things to see that you could’ve so easily missed. Some of them turn out to be the best spots, others a bit dud. Izamal was somewhere […]Read More Mexico – A Blissful Holiday Pt.2 Valladolid, Near good things
Continued from here. So from Valladolid it’s very easy and quick to get to Chichen Itza, It’s only about an hour drive and there are plenty of collectivos running.

This probably means a little more queuing than if you arrived 15 […]Read More Mexico – A Blissful Holiday Pt.3 Chichen Itza and Ik Kil

I was hoping to experience some culture, some great food and of course a bit of the beach life as well. I was happy to find that it exceeded my expectations on all counts. To make […]Read More Mexico – A blissful holiday Pt.1
Continued from here. Elk Falls is a pretty impressive waterfall. I fell in to thinking that the island was pretty small, like I’m sure many tourists do until they google the directions to drive to Tofino, so to see such a sight, I was surprised. It’s so well hidden, completely surrounded by forest, and the […]Read More Vancouver and the Island Pt. 2
Taking the opportunity to explore is definitely one of my top priorities, so an open invitation down to Vancouver Island was the perfect chance to get a holiday from my holiday. Driving with a friend down to Vancouver was interesting, mostly thanks to the blizzard we drove through at night. Simply following the tracks left […]Read More Vancouver and the Island – Pt. 1
