On our 10 hour tour of Iceland’s Golden Circle, we visited Gulfoss Waterfall, went snorkeling in the Silfra Fissure, hiked through parts of Thingvellir National Park, and visited the Geysir hot springs (home to the geyser after which all geysers are named). It’s little surprise that the Golden Circle is considered one of Iceland’s must-do itineraries.
We did an excursion to Virgin Gorda during our stop on Tortola (British Virgin Islands) from the Norwegian Getaway cruise ship. This is one of the most unique beaches we’ve been too–massive boulders everywhere. Hiking the boulders between beaches was a lot of fun. It can get slippery so if you have water shoes, definitely bring them.
Flume Gorge was a fun, easy hike not too far from Boston. The scenery is quite pretty and it’s definitely worth the trip. Check out my Ultra High definition video from the hike. If you have a 4K monitor, you might feel like you’re there! You can read the detailed account here.
Some video from our hike to Manoa Falls in Honolulu, Hawaii. It takes about a 2 hour hike through the jungle to get to the waterfall. The jungle there is quite beautiful.
The jungle you hike through to get to Manoa Falls is very lush and beautiful. Some of the trees are so incredibly big; the huge trees make the setting feel like a scene our of Jurassic Park. Fortunately, no man eating creatures in this jungle as far as we could tell.
