Diving Roatan’s Spectacular Reefs

It’s time to dive under the sea! I’ve been undecided on how to share photos taken on 10 different dives with you. I have nearly two-thousand pictures split between my trusty GoPro and my new Canon D30 waterproof camera. Our dive master Fernando, called me the paparazzi. Yep, I sneakily stalk fish and other sea creatures in…

Relaxing in Roatan

Our first full day in Roatan dawns bright and sunny. And thank goodness – it’s our only day with no plans! We have a lot of diving in the days ahead, a wedding and a sailing trip, so it’s good to have one day where we can just relax and do nothing. After breakfast, we…

Caribbean Vibes in West End

I know you probably won’t believe me when I tell you this, but it’s been almost a year since I’ve had a real vacation. I’m really looking forward to a few weeks off in Central America. I have done quite a bit of traveling this year, but some of it was for work and the rest was…

Doin’ a Little Deep Sea Fishin’

Well, maybe not ‘deep sea’ per se, but it was still some excellent fishin’! During our 4 days at the beach, we only planned 1 day of activities – a fishing/snorkeling/BBQ boat trip! We booked the trip through our hotel (unfortunately I can’t remember the company), and the boat picked us up right on the…

Tobago and a Special Moment

The second part of our Trinidad and Tobago vacation was several days relaxing on the beach! We got up early to attempt to catch the first ferry over to Tobago, but unfortunately, so did everyone else in Trinidad. Apparently the entire population was headed to the other island for a little relaxing over the holiday…

Port of Spain and Sounders Games

Back in 2012, several friends and I made the trip to Port of Spain, Trinidad, to see the Sounders play in the CONCACAF Champions League. As much as I love a good sporting match, it was honestly more of an excuse for a tropical, Caribbean vacation than because I felt an undying need to see…

Vacations Gone Wrong in Dominican Republic

First I want to apologize for the lack of photos in this post. As you’ll soon read, I spent most of the trip sick and didn’t end up taking many. In May of 2014, I went to the Dominican Republic with my friend Jesse and her family. They have had timeshares for many years but had decided to…
