It was a short canopy tour, maybe 20-30 minutes.
But I climbed up about four storeys of stairs. Then crossed a hanging bridge. Then climbed another, oh, maybe five or six storeys of steps. Ending up 1200 feet (400 meters) above ground, o... Read more
Yup - we swam out to a blue hole and snorkeled around. I forgot to take off my pedometer from my swimsuit bottom. Have you ever seen a pedometer screen with water sloshing around inside? Fortunately, I had a spare in my luggage.

DH and I have very different eating habits - his favorite vegetable is french fries. Really, I'm not joking. He will actually say that.
So when we shop for groceries, he picks out one thing, I pick another. At home, we often have two kin... Read more
Just a quick note to let people know we're in our camper van, squeezed in with all of our stuff, and headed north along the coast.
We're camped at a caravan park in Towoon Bay, which may or may not be on a map - very tiny place, but this ... Read more
