Pitcairn Island

For years I’ve speculated and thought about what it would be like to visit Pitcairn Island. I had a somewhat romantic vision of the island through my own conceptions and also what I have read about it throughout their history and from others I’ve known who have visited before me. But I wasn’t prepared for […]

How to Get to Pitcairn Island

Pitcairn Island is one of the most isolated and mysterious places on the planet. The dreams of many of actually visiting are foiled because of the high costs and extremely arduous journeys it can require to get to Pitcairn itself. Most people have no idea how to get to Pitcairn Island. Located some 300 or […]

Landing at Bounty Bay

We anchored in the landing at Bounty Bay around 9pm after 51 hours sailing into a brisk headwind. It was dark, eerie and I had no idea what was happening. It was tremendously exciting. We saw the quad bikes by their headlights coming down the ‘Hill of Difficulty’ to the landing where soon the boats […]

The Marquesas Islands

Powerful, grand, mysterious, brooding, floral and charismatic. Those are some great adjectives to describe the Marquesas Islands. The six inhabited islands and several uninhabited islands are broken up into northern and southern groups. The two main islands are Nuku Hiva in the north and Hiva Oa in the south. My flight from Pape’ete set off […]

Tahiti

Tahiti…the name says it all right? Tahiti is a magical sounding word that brings about thoughts of an exotic paradise but make no mistake, Tahiti is not what you’ve seen pictures of or dreamed about. Tahiti is a nice enough place to be but it is the largest island of the country of French Polynesia […]

Bora Bora

This is the one. This is the place you’ve been hearing about your whole life. That little piece of paradise located somewhere in the South Pacific. The name alone brings about thoughts of exotic paradise and hedonistic dreams. I am here to tell you that Bora Bora does not disappoint. It is that good. It […]

Moorea

Moorea is one of those places you’ve always heard about but never really thought you’d be there. Much like many of its Polynesian neighbors, Moorea is far, exotic and does not disappoint. A blessed mix of Kauai and St. Lucia; Moorea teems with natural beauty and a true tropical feel. Moorea is a quick 25 […]

Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye is one of those types of places that are just timeless. I first visited in 2003 and spent 3 awesome days there. Fast forward 9 years and I spent another 3 awesome days. A lot had changed but most still remains the same. Ambergris retains its charm and stunning natural beauty while only […]

Placencia, Belize

Placencia is essentially a 27 mile peninsula off the southern highway in South Central Belize. It is perhaps the best known resort area in Belize after Ambergris Caye. It is home to the best beaches, restaurants and nightlife in Southern Belize and possibly the whole country (non cayes). It contains more speed humps per mile […]

Mayan Ruins in Southern Belize

The ancient cultures have always fascinated me. It doesn’t matter in what part of the world, it has always perplexed me how they achieved such amazing things in such a primitive time. No part of the world is more renowned for ancient civilizations than the Americas. From the Incas to the Aztecs to the Mayans, […]
