Akumal, Mexico – Day Trip Awesomeness

Nestled between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, this little jewel (whose name means “place of the turtles” in Mayan) is just a short colectivo ride from either city. Overpower a small child, take their snorkel gear, and head to Akumal- one of the best day trips we’ve taken thus far.

Cenote Azul – The Start of My Love for Cenotes

If you have been reading this blog for a while, you know that I, Erica, am a huge wuss with a giant list of fears. Jaime from Breakaway Backpacker got annoyed at me a few times as I refused to dive into a lake in Flores, Guatemala (fear of drowning and I can’t hold my breath without holding my nose and a huge fear of water where I cannot see the bottom).

Playa del Carmen vs. Over Yonderlust

There isn’t really a better way to describe our initial experiences in Playa del Carmen other than saying we got off to a rocky start on the wrong foot after getting up on the wrong side of the bed. We wandered from the colectivo stop to the crowded hostel we were going to spend the night at. We got there only to find that the last two beds were in separate dorms.

The Great Mohican Camping Experience

The Mohican area in Ohio is a great place that provides not only a great camping experience but other activities to make sure you’re happy campers. Your options range from state parks to small family owned camp sites or even upscale cabins. Looking for activities to keep you and your family busy, Mohican country is one of Ohio’s best canoe/kayak areas not to mention horse back riding, hiking, zip lines, bike trails, water parks, and much much more. Plenty to see and do that will give you a new outlook on camping.

Unexploded Ordnance in Laos Keeps Country in Cycle of Poverty

From 1964 to 1973, the U.S. flew 500,000 secret missions and dropped two million tons of bombs on Laos, two tons for every man woman and child in the country, making it the most heavily bombed country in history. Many did not explode on impact and today continue to kill and maim those who find them.
