NORTH CASCADES: NATIONAL HIDDEN GEM

NORTH CASCADES: NATIONAL HIDDEN GEM

North Cascades National Park is one of Washington state’s (and America’s) most underrated and least frequented national parks. What the park lacks in visitors it more than makes up for in beauty and unique attractions. It is not for the faint of heart as many of the best views, hikes and activities require some significant trekking.

RESORT REVIEW: PETIT ST. VINCENT

RESORT REVIEW: PETIT ST. VINCENT

We chose Petit St. Vincent (PSV), a private island in St Vincent and the Grenadines, for our honeymoon in November 2018. We had always wanted a beach vacation for our honeymoon, and after much research and consideration (Mexico, Hawaii, Bora Bora, Cuba, Costa Rica…) we remembered this website that had helped us plan our Peru trip in 2017.

ORCAS ISLAND

ORCAS ISLAND

Situated directly between Vancouver Island and Washington State, Orcas Island is the largest island in the San Juans and, in our opinion, one of the most beautiful. With a size of just over 148 square kilometers, the island serves just the right amount of civilization while still providing a remote escape. 

A DAY IN PROVENCE

Provence was one of my top destinations when Slade and I were planning our 3 month Europe trip in 2015. I had read all of Peter Mayle's books, had re-watched the film adaptation of A Good Year countless times, and had dreamed of the endless sunflower and lavender fields dotting the French countryside.

Last May Long Weekend, Maria and I decided to take a road trip up to Wells Gray Provincial Park. The drive is about 1.5 hours north of Kamloops, just north of Clearwater.
