In Episode 2, we went on the Pearl tour with Mountaineers of Iceland. It honestly was the highlight of our trip. It was everything you think of when you think of Iceland. The Pearl Tour is an Iceland adventure where you will experience some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena by exploring the Golden Circle, topped off with an unforgettable snowmobile tour on Langjökull glacier. On the Golden Circle, you get to explore is Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the active Geysir Hot Spring area with its boiling mud pits and spouting hot springs and Gullfoss Waterfall(one of Iceland’s most powerful waterfalls). The highlight of the trip for us was going on a snow mobile on Langjökull Glacier and dashing across snowfields on snowmobiles while gazing at the mountain peaks. It wasn’t just the highlight of our Iceland trip but our travel highlight of the year. Check out our experience in the vlog above. (more…)

During our recent adventures in Canada, a local told us about a beautiful gem called Lynn Valley Canyon which is located just outside of the city of Vancouver. What an amazing gem. Lynn Valley Canyon is a great location for picnics, hikes or even a refreshing swim(yes we did it!!) in the summer months in one of the many popular swimming holes. Entrance to the park is completely free for you to enjoy and explore. The best things in life are free and this is one of them. During our travels we went to many places but this is more of a local gem and one that took our breath away. What we loved was the fact that it wasn’t full of tourists and it was the perfect spot to get a real feel for the outdoor lifestyle which is seen all over Vancouver. The beauty and nature that surrounds you is just breathtaking.
We recently took off on an adventure on the Wild Atlantic Way and what struck us was the amount of beautiful places you can visit along the way that won’t cost you a thing! We live in a beautiful country and spotted along the Wild Atlantic Way are breath taking places waiting to be discovered. Although it’s great fun to hop on a plane and explore exotic places half way across the world… more often than not we forget to explore what’s right in front of us.. so that’s exactly what we did! We picked up a car from Car Rental Ireland and headed on our road trip along the Wild Atlantic Way. Having your own car doing the Wild Atlantic Way is the best way to explore it. It allows you to stop whenever you want and spend as long as you want in a location. (more…)
Whistler was definitely on our bucket list during our trip to Canada.

Whistler is north of Vancouver and home to the world of ski enthusiasts. With more than 8,000 acres over 2 mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, it’s the largest ski area in North America. It co-hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics. (more…)
