    How to Hike the Lagos Cliffs and See the Best Beaches in Lagos

    Hiking the Lagos cliffs is the perfect way to see some amazing Algarve coastline, visit some of the best beaches in Lagos, and check out the famous Ponta da Piedade. Here’s a guide on how to hike the cliffs of Lagos, Portugal. After about a week and a half of traveling on my own in Portugal, I was joined by my good friend Madison (who I visited last summer in Colorado) for five days in Lagos, Portugal. During our first few days there, we kept hearing about this awesome hike along the cliffs, but we couldn’t find any guides online. So finally, Madison and I decided to just wing it…

After a ridiculously long day in Boulder, we decided to sleep in the next morning and get a late start to the following day. Of course, this probably wasn’t the most strategic thing we could have done, given that the following day was Father’s Day, but we were exhausted and not exactly thinking straight. Oops.

If you make a purchase from one of them I will recieve a small commision at no extra cost to you, which allows me to keep this blog up and running! One of the beautiful things about Boquete – and Panama in general – is the fact that it is still relatively off the beaten track. Because of this, I didn’t really know what to expect when I got there. Sure, I was able to find a little bit of information in guide books and look at a few pictures on Google, but for the most part what awaited us when we arrived…

If you make a purchase from one of them I will recieve a small commision at no extra cost to you, which allows me to keep this blog up and running! Updated April 14, 2018 I first read about Red Frog Beach pretty early on in my research about what there was to do in Bocas del Toro. At first, I filed it away in the back of my mind as a place that we could take a water taxi to for a lazy beach day. A little later on in my research, I read that it was possible to walk from Wizard Beach along…

    Slide Rock State Park, Arizona // The Complete Guide

    Classic Arizona red rocks. A natural water slide. The mystical qualities of Sedona. Slide Rock State Park has it all. Whether you’re taking a road trip through Arizona, or taking a longer vacation in Sedona or Flagstaff, a visit to Slide Rock State Park is an absolute must. The morning after my brother and I visited the Grand Canyon and stayed the night in Flagstaff, we knew that we wanted to check out some more of the red rock formations that Arizona is so famous for. Without much of a plan in mind at all, we looked up state parks near Sedona, came across Slide Rock, and then set off.…
