Stand Up Paddle Boarding with East Coast Paddle

 Stand Up Paddle Boarding with East Coast Paddle
Photo Used with Permission from East Coast Paddle

I have to admit, I was a bit jealous. My buddies Rori from RoriTravels and Mike and Catrell from Cooney World Adventures had both experienced Stand Up Paddle Boarding with East Coast Paddle and both reviews of their trip were awesome. They spotted manatees, dolphins and more on this eco-tour through the estuaries of the Canaveral National Seashore.

 Stand Up Paddle Boarding with East Coast Paddle

So last weekend (perhaps the last nice weekend before the cooler weather advances into Florida), Brian and I had the chance to travel to New Smyrna Beach, FL and try Stand Up Paddle Boarding with East Coast Paddle*.

Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Drag Races; What to Expect

 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Drag Races; What to Expect

Watch out Adventurers, those Drag Queens & Kings are fierce!

One of the events held at the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival is a Draq Race on Bondi Beach. Bondi Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the world and a must-see when in Australia. And if I was going to make a trip to the beach anyway, I might as well plan it on the day of the races, right?

What are the Drag Races exactly?

Simply put, Drag Queens and Drag Kings from around the world sign-up to compete against each other in funny, physical challenges on the beach.

I took a cruise over the weekend and couldn’t pass up an opportunity to pose and take a photograph with the new Disney Dream ship when it was docked.

Koh Larn

From the Ultimate Thailand Explorers Pattaya Blog [originally published 22 December 2009].

Pattaya is well known for it’s beaches. I love the beach. So taking the ferry out to Koh Larn was a perfect getaway. Today’s post answers the questions: “How to get to Koh Larn?” and “What is there to do on Koh Larn?”

Unfortunately, beach weather is long gone in Central Florida. I’ll have to travel further south – or relive the experience here to get my fix of sand and surf.

Have a great weekend.

Hey Explorers,

Archive: Day 2 Recap

From the Ultimate Thailand Explorers Pattaya Blog Archive [originally published 11 December 2009].

Day 2 highlights from Pattaya, Thailand included riding on jet skis off the island off Koh Larn. Jet skiing is great fun if you’ve never done it. I was especially proud of the video I made filming it. Notice how our day ended at 12:30 A.M. The life of a travel blogger can be quite grueling, but worth the effort.

Have a great weekend.

Hey Explorers,

Tips for Visiting a Nude Beach for the First Time

 Tips for Visiting a Nude Beach for the First Time

Hey Adventurers,

I got my “All Over at Haulover” this weekend.

I’m sure the title of today’s post got you all uncomfortable, but it shouldn’t. Haulover Beach in Ft. Lauderdale, FL is known for a small stretch that allows nudity. If you’ve never been nude at a nude beach, add it to your adventure list. It’s an adventure worth having once – and you’ll probably enjoy it enough you’ll go back again.

A Day Trip to Block Island: In Photographs

 A Day Trip to Block Island: In Photographs

Where is Block Island?

I grew up only 90 minutes from Block Island, Rhode Island’s summer getaway, but never went there. The excuse always was, “I can go there anytime”. While a valid excuse, it turns out anytime meant never. I took it for granted. And now that I live in Orlando, I can’t just take a day trip to Block Island. So on a recent trip home to Massachusetts, my brother and I visited this tiny island off Rhode Island’s Coast.

Today’s post will be shared in pictures (and for more photos of Block Island, you can visit my Facebook Fan Page  Block Island Photo Album).
