5 Reasons Everyone Needs To Jet Ski In Manuel Antonio

  Jet Skiing in Manuel Antonio was some of the most fun we’ve had since moving to Costa Rica.   Dan has a bit of jet skiing experience, but for both of us, it was downright exhilarating to spend a morning out on the picture-perfect waves. Manuel Antonio seems to be every tourist’s favorite spot in Costa Rica, and now we finally understand why so many travelers take to the shores of the national park each year.   We have friends and family visiting us over the next few months, and this is at the top of our list of personal recommendations... read more

The Big Apple: 8 things you wish you knew before your first visit

  Apparently, no one actually knows why New York City is nicknamed the Big Apple. There’s a whole website called “The Big Apple” dedicated to investigating the origins of American words and phrases — specifically NYC’s most unexplained nickname. Evidently there was a horse racing reporter for the New York Morning Telegraph in the 1920s who frequently referred to NYC as the Big Apple, and that’s the earliest concrete evidence of the nickname gaining any sort of popularity. This is all to iterate New York is a land of mystery, and we’re still not sold on the whole large, red... read more

5 ways to travel to Boracay, Philippines: planes, (no) trains and automobiles:

Do you remember the Tootsie Roll lollipop commercials with Mr. Owl, where the little boy would walk up and ask the wise bird, “Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?” And Mr. Owl would reply, “Let’s find out: one, two, three,” and eat it. That’s how I felt about traveling to Boracay, Philippines. Only I asked, “How many modes of transportation does it take to get to a single island in the Philippines?” Fun fact: it was more than three. Boracay is a tiny island among the Visayas,... read more

Whale Watching In Costa Rica: A Spectacular Wildlife Encounter

    Sandy, bare-feet sloshed over the muddy coastland. Hands were gently held one-by-one as we were assisted onto a small boat. Then, sitting squarely on individual blue seats, the engine ignited and thrust the boat full of eager faces over the breakers and into open waters. The bright blue ocean lapping in stark contrast against the rugged ginger cliffs elicited a lull over the entire group as we earnestly began our quest for the day: spotting a majestic Humpback whale.     We were heading out into the ocean in mid-October; we were told the whale migration season would culminate in just a couple of weeks, which left many with doubts that... read more

5 Unique Travel Apps Every Wanderluster Should Know About

For as much time as we spend locked into our devices to make our location-independent business possible, we always seem to be behind the latest trends. For example, as much as we’ve tried (and wanted) to get on Snapchat, we just can’t seem to find the time to learn about yet another social media app. The same is true for travel apps. With new apps coming out all the time, it can be overwhelming to try to utilize them all. However, that said, there are a few apps that have caught our attention either for their uniqueness, practicality, or... read more

Coping with Reverse Culture Shock: What You Need To Know

      Reverse culture shock is the ugliest part of traveling. It marks the end of your adventures, and worse yet, a return to normalcy. The term “reverse culture shock” is defined as: an “idealized view of home” and the “expectation of total familiarity.” To put it bluntly, it’s the somewhat devastating feeling that accompanies your flight home from a long stint abroad — after the initial ‘I-can’t-believe-I’m-going-home-excitement’ wears off and you’re left with a whole of, well, nothing. I came across a good way of putting reverse culture shock in my research — “you find yourself feeling... read more

The Ultimate Guide To House Sitting: What You Need To Know

We’ve done our fair share of housesitting in stunning destinations around the world like Costa Rica, France and New York City. As such, we get a lot of emails and questions about what it’s like and how other traveler’s can find housesitting jobs, too. And while we’ve written about house sitting in San Ramon and the South of France, we’ve never actually written a comprehensive guide to house sitting. So finally, here you have it: A Cruising Couple’s guide to getting started with housesitting:     Spoiler Alert: we have a special bonus gift for our AWESOME readers at the end of this post—ahem,... read more

Discovering The Surprisingly Delicious Wine of Cyprus

Food and drink are at the heart of Cypriot culture and fantastic cuisine can be found all over the island, from the bustling cities of Limassol and Larnaca to the tiny villages of the Troodos mountains, while the summer months are jam-packed full of food festivals. And while traditional dishes like fried calamari, keftedes and baklava are known the world over, the wines of Cyprus are not so widely renowned – which is surprising as Cyprus is one of the world’s oldest producers of wine, with a history that dates back some 6,000 years. A brief history of Cypriot... read more

“Casey and Dan of A Cruising Couple participated in our hospitality client’s road trip campaign this last spring. We greatly enjoyed collaborating and they took the time to get to know hotel staff, explore the area and thoughtfully cover the very best that our hotels and their cities had to offer. The easygoing couple produced detailed posts and beautiful imagery for both our campaign microsite and A Cruising Couple blog while also expanding our audience reach through fun social media posts. A big thank you to Casey and Dan for showcasing our hotels and local activities to your readers and we look forward to working together again in the future!”
