Puerto Rico - A day in El Yunque Rainforest

Puerto Rico is known for its beautiful beaches, towering Spanish Forts, charming Old San Juan with its shopping and definitely some of the most amazing beaches in the world.  Many visitors never leave San Juan, but only thirty minutes east is the impressive El Yunque rainforest.  A total world apart from the white sand beaches so very close. 

Take a day and get out on an adventure!  A simple drive east will get you there. Renting a car is easy and not expensive on the Island.  I was impressed with the polite drivers and easy to navigate roads.  I had read differently, but after some harrowing drives in Peru and Iceland, San Juan was a piece of cake.  Signage is good once you get in range. Just be aware and I don't think you will miss El Yunque.

Jokulsarlon Lagoon - A must see when visiting Iceland

Tucked away in the southeastern corner of Iceland is a little gem of an attraction that no tourist should miss.  Amongst the many tendrils of the Vatnajokull Glacier is the incredible Jokulsarlon Lagoon.

A Wild Soccer Saturday in London

Last week my friend Jordan and I embarked upon a winter soccer adventure.  It was an eight day trip with the focus being a Super Saturday in London.  Our plan was to take in an EPL double header.  12:30 would be attending West Ham United against Liverpool at Upton Park followed by a trip all the way across town for a 5:30 Watford - Manchester City clash in Watford.  It was going to be tough but we thought we could pull it off.

Prior to Saturday we had already attended Manchester United v Chelsea at Old Trafford and Queens Park Rangers v Hull at Loftus Road. Our appetites had been wetted for Super Saturday.  It was not all to be easy though. As of Friday night 10pm we still had no tickets to either match!  Both games were sold out within minutes and being non-members on the Watford and West Ham websites there was no chance to get tickets through the club.
