Nick of Time

As stories of unrest flash across the headlines in not one, but two of the places I just traveled to, a mix of emotions run through me, and I’m reminded to count my blessings. The Cairo that I visited was filled with history, wonder and excitement. The people I met were proud of their country and all it stands for. …

GBR Great Barrier Reef

The GBR

Well, I may not have found Nemo, but I sure did see a lot of different colors of fish and coral in the Great Barrier Reef. The day long cruise started with about a 90 minute catamaran ride out to the reef, and once I saw turquoise strands in the dark blue sea, I knew we had arrived. The warm …

Rainforest vacation

Vacation squared

Nothing like a cabin in the middle of the rainforest. No phone (this won’t post till I get some bars), no TV, just me, the forest wildlife, and the beach around the corner. These few days in Cape Tribulation seclusion have been my vacation within a vacation, and now I’m recharged and ready to take on the rest of the …

Cabin on the beach

Cabin on the beach

What could be better than having a beach in your front yard?  How about having a rainforest in your backyard!  Or sleeping in your own private cabin nestled between the beach and rainforest.  That’s just what I will be doing this fall during my stay at the Cape Tribulation Beach House on the Daintree Coast in Australia.  This destination comes at the …
