10 Ideas to Surprise Your Love While Traveling in the Tropics Travel planning with your partner can not only be fun, but also an opportunity to design an adventure that can help develop a deeper bond between the both of you. Each day of the trip can be a chance to add a little bit of spice to the relationship, by pulling off genuine romantic acts that create a closer connection with each other.  Here are 10 ideas to surprise your love on Valentine’s day (or any other day) while traveling in the tropics. 1. Dinner for two: Surprise your partner by making reservations at the most romantic restaurant in the area. If you travel to Costa Rica, here are 3 of my favorite romantic restaurants: Hotel Grano de Oro (garden area), Le Monastere (amazing view of the city) and Doris Metropolitan (garden area). You can’t go wrong with one of these choices, but each country has their own unique romantic setting....

Our Family Trip to Turkey Our family trip to Turkey was the first group departure we have taken, and it turned out to be one of the best trips. The reason it was so great was because of the excellent itinerary that Wildland put together. The knowledgeable and flexible leader we had, and the inter dynamics of our small group of 4 families. Turkey turned out to be the perfect combination of sights, and experiences, learning and fun. Sleeping within site of the Blue Mosque in Istanbul and hearing the muezzins wake up call to prayer was just the beginning of a cultural immersion in a fascinating country that is the cross roads of many civilizations. Our kids studies were reinforced every day, as we saw with our own eyes the remains of the Greek/Roman/Ottoman/and more rule. Our leader had a graduate degree in anthropology, and better yet, she was a mother of a teen,...

Since our children have been born, we’ve traveled. It’s been mostly small things – trips to visit my parents in Lake Tahoe, lots of camping, a road trip from Seattle to Yosemite last summer. We’ve taken them to Hawaii as well, but I’ve been waiting to take them on their first international vacation. I want them to experience somewhere different, but not out of their comfort zone. Somewhere not too far away, but with a good mixture of culture and wildlife.  Now that they’re 6 and 3.5 I think it’s about time. Why now? Honestly, because my youngest is potty trained. Seriously. Also, because I think they’ll remember it now. Cassie, our 6 year old, went to Puerto Rico when she was 14 months old and she remembers none of it. I want their first trip to be something that they remember with their own heads rather than through the...

I think that sometimes when traveling, we spend much of our time and attention on the grand adventure, looking through a camera lens trying to capture that perfect “National Geographic” shot. The older I’ve gotten and the more I travel, I have become increasingly fond of the small—and often unexpected—moments. For me, the small moments add a richness and another dimension to a trip, making it much more meaningful and memorable. There are no photos of the small moments—they are captured and stored in our hearts. Our last Wildland Adventure took us back to South America—to iconic places in Ecuador and Peru. Our ambitious itinerary included Quito, the Napo Wildlife Center in the Yasuni National Park, and the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, and in Peru, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco, and Lima. A trip designed to fulfill lifelong goals and, from grand sites to small moments, the trip did...
