At the time I’m writing this, it is prime “swimming with manatee” season– between November and March, so I thought I’d write an entry about my trip to Florida, where we actually swam with wild manatees. And no need to alert the authorities, there’s actually one last place in the country that it’s legal to swim with them and we went there: Crystal River, Florida.
Ever heard of the Lost City Trek in Colombia? It’s an intense 4 day, 30 mile hike to visit these ancient ruins that were only discovered about 40 years ago. Experts say about 40% of the ruins are still lost to the jungle, with treasures still buried in them. Sounds freaking awesome right? Well we just did it. If you wanna watch about it, scroll down.
Right out of a fantasy tropical island movie, it’s called Three Falls and it’s worth a visit. Three natural water falls, complete with cliff diving rocks, rope swing, and yes, a natural water slide. Like something out of tropical paradise, this hidden gem exists under the radar in Round Mountain, CA.
Food fight! Droves of people armed only with tomatoes go at it for the world’s largest food fight! Don’t worry about the cafeteria lady or the school principal; this food fight is sanctioned and even recognized by the Spanish government as a legit, touristic event.
So when I think polar bears, I think of Alaska and I guess I can wrap my head around polar bears in Canada too. (Manitoba Canada is hailed as one of the polar bear capitals of the world), but did you know one of the best places for spotting polar bears is in Norway?
A couple weeks ago, we went kayaking at Stillwater Cove, in Jenner, CA. Truth be told, this was supposed to be a Go Spearfishing Before You Die episode, but when we got out there, I realized I didn’t bring my weight belt, so this video quickly became a Go Kayaking Before You Die episode!
It’s finally arrived, Episode 1 of Before You Die Guy! The big premiere! Months of planning, stressing, and pacing have culminated to this– A first post! It’s Go Whale Watching…Before You Die! A couple things you should know, if you want to go whale watching yourself, so read below!
Oh Yeah, there’s a Dune Buggy Chase through the desert and literally anyone one can do it (practically). All you need is a valid driver’s license (which they didn’t ask me to present when I went) and that’s it. So this is one of those adventures that you literally show up, pay up, and go and do it. You don’t even have to be a good driver– they just hand you a dune buggy and remind you that your credit card is on file in case you flip it or drive it into the ocean (both of which are highly unlikely in the desert).
