Book Review: BumFuzzle

Have you ever wanted to escape your life? Buy a sailboat and travel the world? This book is about a couple who actually did just that. Even more amazing, they had no deep sailing experience prior to leaving. They just bought a boat, up and left.

Not only is it an inspirational story, it’s a great read.

I’ve read a lot of traveling and sailing books, but I like about this one is that you really feel like you’re on the boat with them, as they go around the world over the course of a few years.

If you need a book for your next vacation this one is highly recommended!

Costa Rica Volcano


When talking about places in the tropics it’s quite standard to use the word “Heavenly.”

Having said that –  Life in Arenal, Costa Rica comes close. Many people chose a day on the beach, but for me a day in Arenal is perfect.

This tropical paradise sits at the base of the Arenal Volcano, and Lake Arenal.

Besides breathing in the fresh mountain air one of the best things to do is spend the day at the hot springs. The hot springs are like no other hot springs in the world. It’s almost like an adult Disneyland. There are hot pools scattered up the hill, including water slides and swim up bars.

If you’re looking for a little adventure instead, Arenal has one of the first and greatest zip lines. It’s so big and safe, even former President George Bush (the first) went zip lining there.

Hot Springs baths. Ziplines.


Why leave?

A Swim Up Bar


There’s something unique about a pool with a swim up bar. Anytime you can stay in the water in your bathing suit without getting out for your drink is a good thing.

Here are five amazing swim up bars.

1) Warwick Fiji Resort & Spa, Viti Levu, Fiji







2) Sheraton Mirage Resort & Spa, Gold Coast







3) Kivotos Club Hotel, Mykonos








4) Hotel Punta Islita — Costa Rica







5) ClubHotel Riu Negril — Jamaica
