Welcome to … Cape Cod!

by Kathryn Blanco / Aug 11, 2012 / 0 comments

A wonderful, welcoming place, Cape Cod is an exciting and refreshing vacation destination that anyone would enjoy. For one thing, hundreds of outdoor adventures are available, including biking long trails through shady forest, past marshes and cranberry bogs; parasailing, soaring hundreds, or even over a thousand, feet in the air over the sparkling sea;  and speeding through the crashing surf on a jet ski, getting splashed with the sea spray.

Insider's Guide to Bermuda: Tom Moore's Jungle

Pick up any Bermudian Travel Guide or even an international magazine with an article on Bermuda, and you’re sure to see a “Top Ten” list of things to do. Everything from The Unfinished Church to the pink sandy beaches...but my favorite spot to take friends and family who visit is Tom Moore’s Jungle. Tom Moore’s Jungle, also called The Walsingham Nature Reserve, is 12 acres of preserved, privately owned land, which is free to the public to access.

Heatstroke and the traveling pet

One of my favorite ways to enjoy travel is to sample food around the world. Every country has its own menu, with traditional desserts, snacks, and entrees. Trying them all is an adventure!

In Thailand, you’re never sure what you’ll end up with. Here, food can be bought in markets and at restaurants. My family prefers to explore the markets, searching for the best deals and bargaining with the vendors. It’s dirty, loud, unorganized, and a treat for the average adventurer!

New York City. Most associate it with just being Manhattan, and the other four boroughs are placed in the peripheral vision. Manhattan is not the center of everything. There is way more to the city than just Times Square and Lady Liberty. Both are really cool sites that I highly recommend visiting if it’s your first time to New York. Otherwise, get out of Manhattan and explore. Don’t get me wrong. I love Manhattan.

Nai Yang is a relatively large town on the luscious island of Phuket. Characterized by sparkling beaches, bustling markets and breathtaking forests, its' beauty has been preserved by the minimal number of tourists who visit each year. Those who do come, do so mainly to experience the beaches.

In the high season (the season in which the most tourists come), the water is calm and clear, providing excellent diving and snorkeling conditions on some of the most beautiful beaches of the world.

I absolutely love to travel. I only got the travel bug somewhat recently too. Well, maybe not too recently. It started when my mom decided to homeschool my sister and me three years ago; that alone opened a whole new door of creative thinking and a fun, safe learning environment. But then we added the element of travel. So far, we have visited close to 40 countries spanning 5 continents. Africa is still on the Got to See List, along with Antarctica.
