A Huge Snapper, Tamarindo
A huge snapper caught with the head of a skipjack tuna in Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Tamarindo, located in the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica, along with being a great surf and resort spot, is a really fun place to fish. I was there in December, which is supposed to be a good time to catch marlin and sailfish although we didn’t, but I had just as much fun reeling in the hard fighting skipjack and yellowfin tunas that bit almost every time we threw out a line. We were even lucky enough to catch a snapper.

Surfers Paradise Beach
The beach in Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise in the Gold Coast of Australia is a city for tourists. Comprised of mostly bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels, and apartments, the city caters to all types of travelers. If you plan on visiting around November / December, know that the city tends to be taken over by schoolies - students on break who party non stop. This may not be the best time to visit if thats not what you're looking for, however, for some of you maybe it is?

Line Up For Ice Cream At Coppelia, Havana

Coppelia Heladeria, Havana, Cuba
The giant open-air ice cream parlor, Coppelia, in Havana, Cuba

Coppelia is a massive open-air ice cream dispensary in the Vedado district of Havana, Cuba. I was told the ice cream is amazing, that I had to go to Coppelia to get a taste of Cuba. I wouldn't say that is partially accurate. The ice cream is good, and you will be eating it on a hot day, which makes it really good, but the real Cuban experience is wait.

Mural de la Prehistoria, Viñales, Cuba

Mural de la Prehistoria Viñales, Cuba
View of the Mural de la Prehistoria from outside the gates in Viñales, Cuba

The Mural de la Prehistoria is 2.5 miles west of the town of Viñales in the Pinar del Río province, Cuba. When I went to see this mural I had done zero research and thought it was some kind of prehistoric mural, painted by a prehistoric people. It's not. Its a mural of prehistory, or at least the artists rendition, and no, it wasn't a giant child's finger-painting lesson using only primary colors. It was painted in 1961 by Leovigildo González Morillo, not a giant child, and even after being recently touched up, the grossly colored mural of giant snails and dinosaurs smeared onto the side of a mogote is definitely not worth the 1 cuc entrance fee, especially when the view outside the gates is a little better.

The Plough and Harrow, Monknash, Wales
The front of the Plough and Harrow pub

If you find yourself in Cardiff, and you have access to a car, take the ride about 20 miles west to the town of Monknash where you'll find a nice little pub with a cool history. Sample their fine Welsh ales and be sure to try their food. Read about their history from the menu and you’ll find the Plough and Hammer has been around for over 600 years, and has become home to a handful of ghosts over this time.
