Colombia was a whirlwind of places to visit. The last stop on our northern tour was a little town called Santa Veronica. You will not find this town on tour lists. Our hostel manager in Santa Marta had not even heard of it! We choose Santa Veronica because of its proximity to Xielo Skydive and for being known for kite-surfing. This little town has so much to offer; it has great people… Read More
Travelling on a budget sometimes means we land ourselves with long layovers. Although this might not seem ideal, we found this to be a fun and unique way to travel. We often save several hundred dollars and get the opportunity to visit a new place! On our trip home from Colombia, we had a 8 hour layover in Panama City, Panama. A quick google told us that this city has a lot… Read More
2017 you have been a wild ride with lots of great things to reflect on. I have a lot to be grateful for this year!…
Over the last year, we heard great things about travelling to Colombia. I was intrigued by the country, so it was natural pick for our next trip. I cannot say enough good things about the country. The people are lovely, the culture is interesting, the landscape is beautiful and we found it safe. We decided to stick to the northern coast in the Caribbean area. We originally wanted to visit Medellin… Read More
Facebook recently reminded my of a memory from three years ago. Three years ago this crazy skydiving journey started with a tandem. I thought I would do one tandem to try out skydiving since my dad was skydiver. I thought it would be a fun way to remember him, as I always heard about it skydiving growing up from family. Well one tandem turned to two then three, and before I… Read More
We arrived at Algonquin Park on a crispy morning with a bright blue sky. I was looking forward to disconnecting and using the time to enjoy nature. I did not get to Algonquin the previous year, so this weekend was anticipated. After a busy summer of skydiving, a hectic work schedule and busy weekends, a weekend away was what I needed. No cellphone reception and relaxing by the lake sounded perfect!… Read More
A moment of silence, as I stepped back and let myself fall. It was a new sensation and almost peaceful. It was not my first time jumping from a helicopter, but maybe the first time I really appreciated the experience. For a non-skydiver, falling out of a plane or helicopter might seem like nearly the same experience, but they are actually quiet difference. Many skydivers try a helicopter jump because they… Read More
The skydiving season trickled to a start this year. Unlike other skydivers, I jump with some regularity through the winter, so for me it was a slow start to the season with sporadic jumping in March and April. Dropzones start Safety Days in May, which often marks the beginning of another season. Safety days are an opportunity for all experienced jumpers (or fun jumpers) to run through safety procedures and discuss… Read More
I recently experienced the Niagara wine scene by bike – a pretty cool experience. I took my mom on a wine tour with Grape Escape bike tours for her birthday. This company appealed to me because it married being physically active with wine…I mean what doesn’t sound good about that? Our tour was on a Sunday afternoon and promised to be about 20km with four wineries stops. The beginning of the… Read More
Last fall I discovered McCrae Lake while searching for an adventure activity near the cottage. The cottage is great, but I can only relax so long before looking for something to do. Fall at McCrae Lake was beautiful and led to my first HIGH cliff jumping experience – like 82 feet high! Spring at McCrae Lake did not disappoint. McCrae Lake has a reputation for more rowdy campers because of its… Read More
