    Cheryl Mac Donald and Lisa Chavis

    Cheryl Mac Donald and Lisa Chavis of What Boundaries Travel and The Travel Pharmacist live by the motto What Boundaries? Live your Dream!  They both had “normal” jobs before  they decided in 2007 to sell everything and buy an around the world plane ticket.  Their adventure was supposed to last only six months at the most, but somewhere in that time they got hooked and since have volunteered in South Africa and Mexico , WOOFed in Hawaii and New Zealand, and backpacked across Europe and Asia.  So far they have traveled to 5 continents, 48 countries and well over 250 cities!

    GlobetrotterGirls  (http://globetrottergirls.com/) was founded by Jess Ainlay, an American freelance travel editor and writer, and Dani Heinrich, a German freelance photographer and writer. Their passion for travel was a thirst that couldn’t be quenched by just a few holidays a year. This is why in 2010, they decided to kick the idea of ‘having’ a bucket list and instead started ‘living’ it. They packed up their London flat and took their jobs with them on the road. In 2014, the pair separated and GlobetrotterGirls is now run solely by Dani, who has been living as a digital nomad for over five years now, combining a full time work schedule with a full time travel schedule. She has climbed volcanoes, swam with sharks and sting-rays in Belize, gone caving deep into sacred and ancient Mayan caves, tried street food around the world, swam with turtles in the Philippines, nearly got robbed in Uruguay and has become an avid house sitter, taking care of pets around the globe. As a believer in slow travel, she tries to spend quality time in most of the locations she visits.  

    Tour:  A Perfect London Day, Off-the-Beaten-Track

    TOUR LINK: http://www.vadovia.com/tour/The-perfect-London-day,-off-the-beaten-track


    Tour Stop HIGHLIGHTs:

    Sunrise Kayaking on Regents Canal:  There’s a lot to fit in just 24 hours in London, so the day begins before the crack of dawn at Regents Canal for a kayaking tours of canals with Thames River Adventures. (www.thamesriveradventures.co.uk) Paddle the canal when it’s serene and nearly silent – the only sounds coming from animals waking at the London Zoo as you glide past and on to the celebrity mansions of Primrose Hill.  The tour ends in the post-punk mecca of Camden Town.

    The Breakfast Club: After kayaking, head to the Breakfast Club just near Angel tube station in the Islington area. Make your way to Chalk Farm Tube Station and take the Northern Line to Angel. A small chain, this is by far the most popular breakfast club. Make sure to have a look around the independent stores in Camden Passage while you’re there.  This picturesque alley has been named one of London’s top 5 little shopping streets by Guardian news.

    Abney Park Cemetery – Stamford Hill:    Abney Park in East London is home to struggling artists and future creative geniuses.  The park is not a park but a mystical, almost magical Victorian cemetery with fascinating, yet crumbling, tombstones filled with history.  Tourists have yet to discover this treasure even though it was featured in Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’ video.

    East London- Exploring Shoreditch:  Storeditch, the heart of East London, is filled with unique street art, countless bars and little coffee shops.


    Brick Lane- Best Indian Curry in Town:  Historically, the Brick Lane area has been London’s Indian and Bangladeshi enclave and the street itself is lined with dozen Indian restaurants.  Waiters stand outside in front of each to strike up deals to pull you inside their restaurant.  Barter here to get at least one, if not two, free bottles of wine and/or free appetizers.  On Sundays, you can experience the popular Brick Lane Flea Marker. Step into some of the trendy shops (don’t miss Rough Trade East records) and wander through the Old Truman Brewery.

    Spitalfields (Crispin Place):  It’s a short walk from Brick Lane to Spitalfields Market- one of London’s most popular markets. Vendors sell just about everything you never even knew you wanted. Around the edges of this indoor market are several restaurants and small artisanal food vendors.  On Sundays, there’s a giant clothes market (Petticoat Lane Market) just a short walk from Spitalfields.

    Erin Morris (http://www.delapuravida.com) is a location independent US expat living in Costa Rica.  She first visited Costa Rica in 2008 and fell in love with the climate, abundant wildlife, and laid back way of life.  So, in early 2010, she and her dog moved to Costa Rica.

    She finances her stay in Costa Rica by operating an online graphic design business that specializes in books and websites.  She has also satisfied her never-ending curiosity by trying on different hats, from full time traveler to newspaper editor to English teacher to yoga instructor to writer.

    When she’s not blogging, she’s looking for her next adventure, exercising, cooking, walking in the mountains with her dogs or hanging out at the beach.

    Tour:  Drake Bay


    TOUR LINK:  http://www.vadovia.com/tour/Amazing-Drake-Bay

    Tour Stop HIGHLIGHTs:

    Corcovado National Park:  A 263 square mile national park located on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. Corcovado has 10% of the world’s biodiversity. National Geographic calls it “the most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity.  It’s WILD!  It’s like visiting a tropical rainforest zoo where the animals are running free!  There are several options for touring the park; a half-day guided tour starts at Drake Bay at the crack of dawn and involves a one hour boat ride there and back.  Guides have well-trained eyes that can spot some of the better camouflaged animals, they know where to find the Baird’s Tapirs and they share interesting facts about all the wildlife.  Another option is to hike the park.

    Hike the coastal trail from Drake Bay to Rio Claro:  This hike is free and absolutely breathtaking. Leave early in the morning and pack a picnic lunch and plenty of water.  The hike takes you along the coast through several changing landscapes, over several different swinging bridges and to a ridiculous amount of different types of secluded beaches.  End the hike at Rio Claro and rent a kayak to paddle back up the river; or hike back to Rio Claro and go to Playa San Josecito where you can snorkel and catch a boat back to Drake Bay. Note: be careful planning this trip because boats don’t always pick up passengers at Playa San Josecito and you can’t hike back on the trail during high tide. If you get stuck, you can hike up to Poor Man’s Paradise, up to the top of the mountain and then follow the road back to Drake Bay which is about a 5 hour hike.

    Swim with Bioluminescent Phytoplankton at Night:  At the local bar, La Jungla, there is a man who can take you on a guided night tour where you can swim with the awesome, glowing bioluminescence of phytoplankton.  Go to the bar at least a day in advance to ask if he is available for a tour. Get his phone number and call him before dark on the afternoon you want to go. 

    Whale and Dolphin Watching: There are over 25 species of whales and dolphins that live or are passing by Drake Bay.  You have an excellent chance to see them.  You can buy a half-day or full day tour.

    Kayak:  Kayak in the many nearby rivers or in the ocean.  Rio Claro is a particularly fun river to kayak in.  Kayaks can be rented by the hour and prices are negotiable.

    Beach Time:  Drake Bay is an excellent place to hike and explore but don’t forget to chill out and spend some time on the beach. There are beaches you can safely swim in near the town center as well as many hidden secluded beaches along the coastal jungle trail. Don’t go in the water above your knees if there are riptides!  Don’t forget sunblock – this part of the earth is very close to the equator.

    Tour:  The Perfect Dublin Pub Crawl


    TOUR LINK:  http://www.vadovia.com/tour/The-perfect-Dublin-pub-crawl


    Tour Stop HIGHLIGHTs:


    Cellar Bar and Restaurant:  The Cellar bar is hidden underneath the Merrion Hotel.  It’s an interesting hotspot in Dublin, with its stone walls and seemingly endless supply of labeled bottles.  This is a great place to start before heading out on a late night crawl.  Grab a bite to eat and a nice glass of wine from its carefully selected wine collection.         

    Anseo: In a complete contrast to the Cellar Bar, the Anseo is not your typical Irish pub – in fact, it’s not even close.  This pub is an eclectic mix of alternative and funkiness, with an unpretentious, honest, smooth vibe.  It has a bit of a ‘hidden gem’ feel to it.  Once you arrive, take a seat, relax and enjoy a few selections from its healthy beer stock.

    The Stag’s Head:  Distinctive and wonderful, The Stag's Head is certainly another wonderful piece of Dublin's charm. It's loved particularly by the Trinity College students, but it has more of a quirky brilliance than other local pubs. It has a bit of multiple personality syndrome, spreading haphazardly from its main floor to its bookworm-esque upstairs and oh-so interesting basement.


    The Temple Bar:  The most well-known of Dublin’s original pubs.  It’s as well-known as any pub in Ireland and the UK and the crowd proves it so.  Even though it’s teeming with tourists, it’s still work a quick stop, a little light craic (conversations) and a wonderful local dram of Irish Whiskey.


    Library Bar:  This pub is a relaxed, best-kept-secret of Dublin. With its lavish couches and chairs scattered all around, it’s a perfect place to wind down from a heavy night of drinking.  Sink down in a seat next to the fireplace and admire the walls filled with antique books.
