On a recent trip to Maui, we tried to stop at as many coffee shops as we could while on the island to find the best coffee in Maui. We went around most of the island and hit some good spots! I primarily ordered the same drink each time, my favorite, an iced mocha. Here […]

We visited Costa Rica last month and stopped to see the wild crocodiles at Rio Tarcoles. There are a few vendors in the area, and […]
