Cave Adventures – Part 1.

Cayo Cave.

We went on some awesome cave adventures while in Belize.  I have to admit I was a little bit intimidated at first because a lot of the entry ways were very small with low ceilings.  However, as we carried on through the caves and the ceilings and natural cave windows to the jungle opened up, I soon settled into one of the most naturally beautiful expeditions to see.

Tank ride to the trail head.

The place we stayed had these huge tanker trucks that would bring us to our daily adventures.  They tromped through rough trails and through rivers.  They didn’t destroy anything, we just needed them to navigate the rough roads that aren’t easily accessible.

My onzie yoga pants ended up being the best jungle trekking pants because they were water proof and protected my legs.

We were 85% in caves but every now and then we would come out to the most picturesque river spots in the jungle.

Jungle nerd.  At least I was comfortable for the 9 miles of cave floating.

Best Travel Camera.

As someone who thoroughly loves travel and photography, I’ve also toted my big SLR camera around (and still do to be honest).  After getting a GoPro though, it really takes the cake in terms of adventure camera.  It has a waterproof housing and you can hold it in your hand.  Here are some of my GoPro shots from Belize!

I have an older GoPro but the images are still great quality.  I recommend the camera to anyone looking for a good camera that’s small, easy to pack, and durable.

Images from In the Saddle.

I hear from so many friends and family that they would love to know what it is like to be in the saddle but are a tad too timid to try.  For those that ever want to know what it feels like, it’s pure freedom.  It’s the only sport where human and animal work so closely together.  It’s amazing the power the animals have yet don’t choose to abuse it.  In Bosnia, we rode in a different direction each day and each direction was full of different views.  Here are a few photos from in the saddle 🙂

DCIM101GOPROFall was in full swing.  I love the changing of seasons and I loved hearing the leaves crunch under the horses feet.

This is one of my favorites.

I have sooo many images to share and I love to look back at them.  I’ll try to swap some fashion posts in between but there are many more horse photos to come!

Wander Wednesday.

I must confess, lately I’ve been less interested in fashion and more interested in adventure.  I do love fashion but there’s nothing like fresh air and a new setting to get the creative juices flowing.  Chels and I are ready to hop back in the game but I must give credit to some of my most recent weekend trips.  Here are some photos I’ve been snapping that brought me back!
