Valentine's Day is our wedding anniversary, so here's a little homage to Anne.
I met Anne at a Bochinche salsa concert at Seattle's annual Bumbershoot music festival. And do you know the first word out of her mouth that she said to me, "No." And the next five words were, "I said, no, didn't I?" (I won't repeat my lame pickup line.) Then on our first date, a picnic in a local park, I forgot my wallet when we were buying some deli items so she had to write a check. In spite of myself, 27 years of rumba around the world since then has spun many tales of romance, adventure, and an ever growing family here in Seattle and in so many friends and families in communities and homes the world over.
In those days when we were just starting out I planned an adventure...
Great trip report from the Gelfand family on our Costa Rica Active Family Adventure
What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why?
At the end of each day, we would remark, "OK, this was my favorite day so far!"
All of the outdoor adventures were great fun (zip lining, white water rafting, rappelling, horseback riding) but of particular note were the interactions with the locals, including ALL the local guides and the delicious lunches at Miriam's and at the top of the mountain at Santa Juana.
Oxcart factory - Hydro-electric energy was super cool!!!
Vida Campensina Farm - GREAT lunch and very informative. GREAT local guide (Jose)
Horseback Riding Tour - Supercool
Family canoeing and snorkeling - Another wonderful guide! Great activity!
White water rafting - FANTASTIC tour, tour guide (John) and waterfall surprise!
Monkeys, sloths, gorgeous birds in the Manuel Antonio National Park
Hike through rainforest - Seeing ants...
Dear Kurt, Anne and Wildland Adventures Team – My daughter and I were sorting through photos today and were struck by how many great memories we have had with Wildland Adventures. While we have been blessed to experience so many countries and many cultures over the years, our experiences with Wildland have always been particularly special. From our first Wildland trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos (at age 8) to our most recent to Peru and the Amazon rainforest (at age 16), my daughter has literally “grown up” with Wildland. We look forward to future adventures, and thought you might like to see the photos that we certainly enjoyed as we took a quick trip down Memory Lane.
Happy Holidays with warm regards,
Debbie and Elizabeth...
While wandering in the small alleys of Mykonos Island I came upon this older gentleman resting and watching pedestrians pass by. To me this moment captured the relaxed atmosphere I was so enjoying in Greece, so I set up to take a perfect photo, Click and oops – I got photo bombed! As the photo-bomber approached I showed him his photo and he explained he is a photo-bomb expert.
A while later after perusing the local shops, I peeked into to one of the inviting cafes that lined the street. In this area, called Little Venice, the restaurants are on a cliff directly over the Aegean Sea. Stunning! I get ready to snap another photo and who do I see but my photo-bomber! He calls out to say this means we must meet. So this is how Benjamin and I met Yanni visiting Mykonos from Northern Greece with his brother,...
Dear Sherry and Kurt,
We are back from our adventures in the Galapagos and Ecuador, and want to THANK YOU both for once again doing everything to make sure we had a fantastic experience!!
Sherry, we can't thank you enough for steering us toward the Athala catamaran, and managing to get us on at the last minute. The boat was fantastic, as you know - and the crew really wonderful. We were completely spoiled, and had a blast with the other passengers - such a fun group.
Again, all our thanks -
Kim (Jeff, Sam, and James) Seely ...
