Here you’ll find special trips and splurge adventures we thought were totally worth spending on. We just don’t say “no” to visiting rescued wild animals, snorkeling in pristine waters or hiking to spectacular waterfalls.

We did our share of strenuous hikes and ziplining in our younger days. These days, we don’t need adrenaline rushes to have a fun adventure. Almost anything out of the norm is an adventure to us.There are wonders round every corner when you are in an exotic place like Thailand or Bali.
