4 Years Without Flying!

May 17, 2022

 Well, we’ve finally done it - booked a carry-on only family flight to Spain!

We’ve haven’t been to an airport for over 3 years, so I’m dusting off my blogger account and I’m gonna try to make a few posts while in Spain and update with more when I return.  

It seems while I wasn’t looking someone even made another website with damn near the same domain name! I guess I should be flattered. ;) 

I’m looking forward to adding 360-degree pics and vids this time, in addition to some drone, phone and dslr captures. 

Stay tuned!

Hawaii Lodging: Megan's AirBnb

March 21, 2018
"Megan' Waves" in Kona! 

Megan's place makes you happy with art, food and fun. Along with a colorfully decorated environment, a yummy organic breakfast, she offers art supplies, bicycles and snorkeling gear for her guests to use at no extra charge!

The room and bed was clean & cozy.

Downstairs, Megan’s neighbors were super chill and fun to hang out with. 

The next morning, after we all did yoga led by @stepheninks and Megan COOKED a very tasty breakfast for us!  

 Shebee was friendly and polite.

 With a few hours to spare before heading to the airport, we borrowed bikes and scuba gear and went to a couple of the nearby beaches.

Megan is a great host, cute and accomodating. With her condo's proximity to beaches and other fun, the next time we come to this island with our kids, her home will be on the top of our list! 

Hawaii Lodging: Steve's AirBnb

March 21, 2018
Pahoa Paradise

Steve’s house is the the closest to a “home away from home” we’ve had the pleasure of experiencing. We were only on the island for a few days, so we were sadly limited to only 2 nights there. 

The house is immaculate yet homey, our bed and room was very comfortable

You can tell he takes pride in the well maintained yet still natural looking grounds. The house is off the main road a bit, making for a nice quiet nights, but not too far from town.

Steve is a great host, very easy going and he’ll be our first choice next time we come to this side of the island!

Oaxaca Sights: Hierve El Agua

July 24, 2017
Hierve El Agua Mineral Springs

Located at the top (or near the top) of a mountain, these springs
are fed by fresh water springs coming up through the ground.

The water is saturated with minerals that create the organic shapes
and the 
white calcium streaks down the sides of the mountain,
making it look like a waterfall.

Oaxaca Sites: Mitla

July 24, 2017
According to wikipedia, "Mitla is the second most important archeological site in the state of Oaxaca in Mexico, and the most important of the Zapotec culture.

I was told these columns were used to determine how old you'd be when you died by how far you could wrap your arms around it... but don't quote me.
