10 Unique Hotels Around the World for Adventure Lovers

Care to scuba dive to your hotel room? How about zip lining down the side of a cliff after you check out of your room? Or a hotel so remote they actually PAY for you to stay at it? Does it sound like I’m making these things up? I can assure you these are all real and very unique hotels! And it makes me so excited that they exist (except for the underwater hotel you have to scuba dive to…that’s… Read more »

The perfect Amazon Rainforest outfit!

My trip to the Amazon in Peru is one of the first trips of my life that I felt I had actually packed well enough for that I could pass on my packing tips to my readers. Seriously, this was the first trip. Haha. I almost always over-pack or forget a key wardrobe piece. The biggest key to me finally mastering packing for this trip was because I’ve finally acquired a decent amount of outdoor/hiking clothes. Our adventures almost always… Read more »

Growing up in a fishing village, the first question my friends and family asked about our trip to the Amazon was “how was the fishing?” Haha. So, here is how the fishing was! (And we were actually fishing on a tributary of the Amazon River – the Yarapa River – not the Amazon itself.) We also ate all the fish we caught…all but one, and you’ll see why in a video below. (We had hooked a giant stingray on accident!)… Read more »

*As I mentioned in my previous post, I still have a lot of photos and experiences to share from our treehouse adventure in Peru’s Amazon Rainforest!

On our second day, after we returned from a day of spotting wildlife in the rainforest, our guide… Read more »

Pants (similar) | Shirt (similar) | Sandals | Sunglasses | Necklace (similar) | Watch c/o* What to wear when it’s insanely hot & humid…or what to wear when you’re living in a treehouse in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest. Haha. This was my one and only “fancy” outfit I brought along for our treehouse adventure. The rest of the time I was wearing hiking clothes and boots! (My roll-up hiking pants are the comfiest things ever.) Usually, when it’s… Read more »

One of the coolest parts of staying in the Amazon Rainforest is all of the incredible critters you get to see during the day and at night. We spotted many different types of monkeys, sloths, birds, fish…and even alligators and gigantic spiders and snakes! My last post was dedicated to what it was like staying at Treehouse Lodge. (Click here if you missed that.) So, for this post, I will be sharing one of the ways we spent our time… Read more »

Treehouse Lodge

As the name suggests, the Treehouse Lodge is indeed a lodge made up of honest-to-goodness treehouses! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was nonstop excitement for us. (This is where we were over the weekend and earlier this week.) Our 4 days there were chocked full of activities. So, for this post, I’m going to focus just on the lodge itself, what to expect when staying there, some cool wildlife sightings right from our treehouse and my thoughts on the price/how… Read more »
