Rainy Season Costa Rica- What you NEED to know!

I was most recently in Montezuma, Costa Rica and let me tell you it was beyond what I expected. It was ultra beautiful and picturesque and I really can’t wait to visit again! The greenery that could be seen everywhere was so rich and lush due mostly in part to the rainy season. Most people would be disappointed to experience rain on their vacation, but definitely do not discount the rainy season in Costa Rica. It adds to the ...

And we talked about using identity-based habits to make consistent progress towards those goals to make sure you reach them, even when you can't find the motivation.   But here's the thing about goals: they're not really the best way to get what ...

3 Essential Ideas for Starting a Successful Online Business Part 2: Goals and Habits

  How do you reach your goals? Starting a successful online business is a really ambitious goal. In the first part of this series, we talked about approaching it with a growth mindset - believing you can reach that goal no matter how far away it may seem at the moment.

Fruit and Water – A Surprisingly Awesome Recipe for Fun: The Woodstock Fruit Festival, New York

  Fruit Festivals are Awesome! The Woodstock Fruit Festival (WFF) is, hands down, one of the most fun times I've had anywhere in the world. I attended again last summer (sorry this is late but better late than never!) for the second time with my amazing friend Stephanie and her three kids. The WFF is essentially a raw food festival, featuring an unlimited amount of fresh organic produce consisting primarily of fresh fruit and vegetables, and trust me, you'll eat a tonne of delicious food while you're ...

Sleep Deprivation leads to 100$ Meals (Airport flight Vancouver-LAX-Melbourne)

  Travelling the world isn’t without its downsides. Sometimes catching flight after flight means missing out on a bit of sleep. Sometimes those flights are 30 hours long. At the end of our skiventure (if that’s not already a word I’m claiming it) at Whistler, BC last March, Matt and I decided to head back to Melbourne for a bit of warm weather and Aussie living. It was a really long journey of over 30 hours’ worth of flights, the longest of which was a ...

Old Friends, Old Apartments: Melbourne, Australia

I try to work out just about every day of the week... unless I'm too busy trying to stay warm sitting by the fire during the Canadian winter. I haven't gotten completely back into the swing of things yet, but staying active was an especially important part of my routine while I lived in Melbourne. That's one of the many reasons the nostalgia still hits me hard (I really lived it up in Melbourne!). I first visited Melbourne years ago and after falling ...

These Are the Days: Echuca, Australia

I love Australia. The family is great, the cities and countryside are awesome. But what I love even more is that I can live a life that lets me spend time in places like this, all over the world. This chapter of my Australian adventure was just as fun as all the rest. As I sniffled by the horses in between playing with my niece and nephew, I took a moment to really appreciate the life I have, and the tools and opportunities that ...

Great Trees, Great Friends, Great Coffee: Nanaimo, Canada

  I barely caught the ferry to go visit Nanaimo, Canada, and after the rush, I was treated to an almost two-hour ferry ride. But the great trees and greater friends were definitely worth it. I grew up in Canada and still have a lot of friends there. As much fun as I have travelling to exotic places all over the world, I still love exploring Canada to this day. It's so huge, there's always something new to see, and since my friends seem to ...

Ahh, that Aussie Air: Outside of Melbourne, Australia

One of my favourite parts of my stay in Australia was just driving through the countryside… and sometimes on the horse tracks (ones that aren't being used). Just a few days into my Aussie adventure, my fiancee Matt and I went back to Elmore (a really small town in Victoria) to visit family, family, and more family. The Australian bush is definitely worth seeing. Personally, I love it. It's quiet, relaxing, the air is so fresh, the people are super friendly, and there's no ...
