Here Comes the Bride – On a Trapeze?

Destination Wedding Jamaica

This week, a few readers asked about my wedding and how I meet Darren so I thought I’d share one of my wedding posts. It explains a lot. With our anniversary approaching, it’s beautiful to reminisce about our special day anyway.

When you marry your best friend who is equally as crazy and foolish, its amazing what free-spirited pictures can be taken on your wedding day. From rock climbing, trapeze-swinging, sand-jumping, and over-the-shoulder throwing, we had it all. But what else would you expect from a couple that knew each other for a month before moving in together, explored countries together, and sold everything to move across the continent and start a new life together? This is my fairy tale. Continue reading

Together We Have… Everything! Happy Anniversary Darren

On this day last year, I danced down the isle, better known as the beach in Jamaica. Darren and I celebrated our love while being surrounded by our family and friends and the most surreal environment imaginable. From rock climbing, trapeze-swinging, sand-jumping, and over-the-shoulder throwing, we had it all. Here’s a glimpse of our wedding day.

One Year of Travel!

After posting One year of Extreme Adventures, I started to think about the travel that I’ve done in the last year. I’ve been to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Bahamas, Mexico (Baja California and Riviera Maya) and Jamaica. I’ve also been to several provinces in Canada such as Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and even more states in the United States like Florida, Alaska, Nevada, and California. I’ve compiled a group of my favorite moments from each country, state, and province. Come along with me on an amazing, unforgettable trip through the last year in travel.

There may not be words to fill in the blanks but the expression on my face accompanied by the surreal surrounding create enough words to fill an entire blog.

Jump for Mastering Action Shots

Some of my favorite photos are jump action shots, but they can be difficult to achieve. Action photography requires you to be quick and know your camera. In most occasions, though, it is the funny, off-time shots that make the day memorable.

Let’s jump in and see some photos inspired by one action: jump!
