Magic in the mountains.

The first thing I did in Chefchaouen was to get out. I’d walked around a bit on the day I arrived, but the first full day I had, my friend took me to the nearby waterfalls. Well, that was the plan anyway… It was Friday and we thought it would be better to go before…

The walk to paradise

I was a bit hesitant when I started walking to Paradise beach. I was told there was no road, but you just follow the coast line and I would get beautiful scenery along the way. I came at the end of a road near the water and climbed over some steps. A few kids were…

Whistler’s wreckage

Whistler has a lot of hiking to offer, but there is one hike that is not promoted but that everyone wants to do anyway. In 1956 a train crashed. The boxcars were blocking the tracks so they were pulled into the forest. They have been there ever since. Many people visit the wreck and over…
