I don’t write many posts for the blog, but this is one that got me a bit excited. Virginie and I went to León, Nicaragua for a few days and when I heard you could slide down a volcano on a piece of wood, I got pretty excited. For one, how many times in your life do you get to climb a volcano? Even better if you get to ride down the side on a little toboggan! The day started as most tours usually do. Everyone meets up early in the morning and gets in some form of transportation. True to …

Learning to Surf: A Must-Do In San Juan Del Sur

If you’ve heard of San Juan Del Sur before, I bet you also heard that it’s a surf town. If you haven’t, well I’m telling you: San Juan is an ultimate surf town! You’ll see people walking with their boards all around town; they’re hard to miss. The sad thing though is that you can’t surf in San Juan itself. The bay doesn’t have any waves (most of the time), so you need to go to nearby beaches to catch some. If we could have surfed in town, Chris and I would probably have bought a couple of board and …

Since we arrived in San Juan Del Sur two months ago, Chris and I have been way too focused on work. It’s a good thing, because we do need the money, but we also felt like we weren’t really taking advantage of living in the awesome place that San Juan is. But since the New Year, that changed a bit. We decided to spend more time exploring the surroundings, which included checking out Playa Blanca by boat. And not any boat: by catamaran. After our incredible experience in Mexico going to Las Marietas Island, we were just so happy to learn …

When Chris and I decided to live in San Juan Del Sur for the winter, we didn’t know we’d just arrive close to one of the biggest turtle spot of Nicaragua. It’s only a days after arriving that we saw groups of people leaving for turtle tours. We didn’t ask anybody about it for a while until I decided that was something we should do! That’s when we realized that if we wanted to see any turtles, we had to get our butt in gear! The Olive Ridley turtle season starts in July and ends in January. Because we were mid-December …

What To Do In Paris For A Week

In Paris, Tourist Life by Virginie0 Comments

There are so many things to see and do in Paris? If you’re like me, you didn’t even know where to start planning your week-long trip. I asked my sister what she had to see (because she’s the one who wanted to visit Paris the most out of the three of us!) and I used that to plan our itinerary. But to be honest, it was hard! There are so many neighborhoods in Paris and how do you know if you’ll have enough time to visit everything you want in one day? I didn’t want to end up packing all …
