Maui: Twins Falls Hike

Published

on

If you are ready to make your Tarzan and Jane dreams come true and happen to be in Maui, I have the perfect place where you can live it out.  All you got to do is hike through the lush, tropical jungle at Twin Falls.  Only thing, no monkeys or lions, but lots of bugs.  Don’t let that discourage you, it’s all part of the experience.

Twin Falls is the first stop on the long and windy Road to Hana and as the name suggests, home to waterfalls that are found as you trek through the jungle.  You will get to see about three waterfalls, maybe five, depending on how much rain the area has gotten.

If you’re a Twin Falls virgin, I suggest you use a trusted guide. Through my hotel, I was setup with Hike Maui. The excursion was seamless and our tour guide made it a fun and informative adventure!  You don’t have to be an experienced hiker or even an athlete to complete the hike.  You can count on spending half a day, from start to finish, at the falls.  It may sound long, but if you can take a break from lounging by your hotel pool and ordering Mai Tai’s, you MUST come here.  Swim, jump, climb or just sit in admiration…. If you head to Maui, you won’t want to miss this.

Not Your Traditional Museum

Published

Lincoln Heights is probably not on your list of places to visit during your time in Los Angeles, but thanks to the 14th Factory, you might just have to become acquainted with the East LA area. 14th Factory, LA’s new pop-up art space, is an enormous building across from an abandoned city jail.

The experience begins as you walk through a pitch black hallway and into a bright white room, a replica of the bedroom from the final scene of Stanley Kubrick’s classic film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The Barmecide Feast, by Simon Birch

From there, you make your way into the center of the factory which has a man-made lawn with swings hanging form the ceiling.  All around the open space, are different works of art, paintings and photography.

This opens up to the Instagram famous picture spot, “The Crusher” by Simon Birch. The piece composed of 300 hanging pitchforks allows visitors to put themselves at the mercy of the dangling farm tool.

You can get as creative as you want!

The other rooms use giant screens to show images of Hong-Kong apartment buildings, a Ferrari crashing at high speeds and a group of men involved in a brawl.


All the installations allow the visitors to completely immerse themselves in the pieces. Tickets are cheaper online ($18) so make sure you plan ahead. If you want to get a chance to go through this unique experience, they are scheduled to shut down at the end of June.

Zip-Line Through Paris

Published

on

The most visited landmark in the world is getting a little upgrade. The City of Love is getting a fun new attraction to excite the over 7 million tourists that visit each year.

A zip line stretching from the Eiffel Tower, across the Champs de Mars, and finishing at the L’École Militaire will be available for thrill-seekers until June 11. Le Perrier Smash was setup by Perrier in celebration of the French Open.

If you’re not afraid of being 375 feet above ground and soaring through the city at about 55 MPH, then this attraction has to be on your list of “to-do’s”. And if the thought of gliding down the zip-line terrifies you, don’t worry, it’s only a half mile long and you’ll be down in about a minute.

Have VR goggles? Pop them on and witness it in 360!

Machu Picchu: Changes In Ticketing

Published

on

If Machu Picchu is on your bucket list, making sure you secure tickets to the UNESCO World Heritage site is the first thing you should do.  Unfortunately, you can’t make the journey up to the citadel without having tickets in hand. 2500 visitors are allowed per day to access the site, and the tickets currently allow for all day access.

Over a million tourists per year step foot on the iconic site, and although this is great business for Peru, it is wreaking havoc on the actual structure.  Archeologists have warned of the serious damage all the foot traffic is causing. The deterioration of the site is leading to changes in ticketing.

To protect the archaeological site, ticket sales will be divided into a morning ticket (8:00AM to 12:00PM) and an afternoon ticket (12:00PM to 5:30PM). These changes aren’t due to happen until early 2018. Changes in prices haven’t been announced and as of today, you can book a ticket for 152 Soles, which is a little less than $50 US dollars.

The change will try to reduce the damage caused by tourists, but will hopefully help in maintaining the site in good shape for generations to come!

If you aren’t planning your trip through an agency, you will need to make sure to get all your business in order.  You can do that here 

And if you haven’t thought about going to Peru, you should.  It is one of the most magical sites to set foot on.
