    Bye Bye Virgin Islands! - After 6 days in our Park #1 of 59, the Virgin Islands National Park, we flew back to Houston to finish packing and selling our stuff, load up the trailer and go on this year long big road trip to the remaining 58 national parks! We have met some good people. It is really a different atmosphere when you are camping. People help each other out more. Plus, the island life is just different - more relaxed...and how could you not be on St. John? It almost seem like you are living in a paradise! It was a great start to this adventure! To get back to Houston, we took the ferry from Cruz Bay on the St. John side to Red Hook on the St. Thomas side. And then, our friend, Ms. Jane took us to the Charlotte Amalie international airport. We had a couple of hours layo...

    Cruise Ship & Island Travel Gear & Advice - http://goo.gl/wCdIV9 This is how to walk from the St. Thomas cruise ship port to downtown Charlotte Amalie. Charlotte Amalie is the best place to buy duty-free watches, jewelry and souvenirs in St. Thomas. It's a safe and easy walk from the cruise ship terminal in St. Thomas. Please note that all shops in Charlotte Amalie close by 6 PM during the week and sometimes at 2 PM on weekends. Avoid Charlotte Amalie after the shops close, as it could be mildly unsafe. I've explored both St. Thomas and St. John tip-to-tip and have never encountered any issues with crime though. I hope that you enjoy this video and please share this video with others.

It involves flight/s, taxis and ferries, especially if your final destination is St. John, like us. Watch this video to see our experience getting there.

Bye Bye Virgin Islands! - After 6 days in our Park #1 of 59, the Virgin Islands National Park, we flew back to Houston to finish packing and selling our stuff, load up the trailer and go on this year long big road trip to the remaining 58 national parks! We have met some good people. It is really a different atmosphere when you are camping. People help each other out more. Plus, the island life is just different - more relaxed...and how could you not be on St. John? It almost seem like you are living in a paradise! It was a great start to this adventure! To get back to Houston, we took the ferry from Cruz Bay on the St. John side to Red Hook on the St. Thomas side. And then, our friend, Ms. Jane took us to the Charlotte Amalie international airport. We had a couple of hours layover in Atlanta, Georgia, which is the hub of Delta Airlines. Our flight back to Houston didn't arrive until past midnight. We were so exhausted. When I re-entered our house, it reminded me how much more errands we need to do to get ready for the rest of the adventure. Yikes! Sort of "back to the real life" :-) WHO ARE WE? We, Irwin and Victorina, have decided to quit our jobs, sell everything we have and go on an epic road trip of visiting all U.S. National Parks! Follow our journey - from letting go of our material possessions, preparing for the extended camping trip, and even the mistakes, joys, doubts and adventures we make along the way! We hope to inspire others to appreciate the beauty of Planet Earth. Adventure begins in Feb 2017. We estimate this road trip will take us approximately 12 to 16 months. We know we will some amazing places and meet a lot of interesting people. If you have an idea or suggestions for us for places to visit along the way, feel free to contact us! NEW VIDEOS every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. If we miss a day, it is probably because we had no phone signal inside the park or we couldn't find any wifi access. If this is the case, we will upload our video as soon as we get any phone signal. WHERE HAVE WE BEEN FEATURED?

Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas, United States Virgin islands before category 5 Hurricane Irma Charlotte Amalie (/ˈʃɑːrlət əˈmɑːljə/ or /-ˈæməliː/), located on the island of St. Thomas, is the capital and the largest city of the United States Virgin Islands, founded in 1666 as Taphus (meaning "beer house" or "beer hall"[1]). In 1691, the town was renamed to Amalienborg (in English Charlotte Amalie) after Charlotte Amalie of Hesse-Kassel (1650–1714), queen consort to King Christian V of Denmark-Norway. It has a deep-water harbor that was once a haven for pirates and is now one of the busiest ports of call for cruise ships in the Caribbean, with about 1.5 million cruise ship passengers landing there in 2004. Protected by Hassel Island, the harbor has docking and fueling facilities, machine shops, and shipyards and was a U.S. submarine base until 1966. The town has been inhabited for centuries. When Christopher Columbus came here in 1493, the area was inhabited by Island Caribs and Taíno. It is on the southern shore at the head of Saint Thomas Harbor. In 2010 the city had a population of 18,481,[2][3] which makes it the largest city in the Virgin Islands Archipelago. Hundreds of ferries and yachts pass through town each week, and at times the population more than doubles. The city is known for its Danish colonial architecture, building structure and history, and a dozen streets and places throughout the city have Danish names. Charlotte Amalie has buildings of historical importance including St. Thomas Synagogue, the second-oldest synagogue in the Western Hemisphere,[4] and Frederick Lutheran Church, the oldest Lutheran church in the Western Hemisphere. The town has a long history of pirates, especially stories of Bluebeard and Blackbeard (Edward Teach). In the 17th century, the Danes built both Blackbeard's Castle and Bluebeard's Castle attributed to the pirates. Blackbeard's Castle is a U.S. National Historic Landmark. Another tourist attraction is Fort Christian, the oldest standing structure in the Virgin Islands Archipelago. A copy of the Liberty Bell is in Emancipation Park, which is a tourist attractio Hurricane Irma is an extremely powerful tropical cyclone currently threatening the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico and Florida. It is the strongest Atlantic hurricane since Wilma of 2005 in terms of maximum sustained winds and the most intense in terms of pressure since Dean in 2007. Irma is also the first Category 5 hurricane to impact the northern Leeward Islands on record. A typical Cape Verde hurricane,[1][2][3] Irma developed on August 30 near the Cape Verde Islands from a tropical wave that moved off the west African coast two days prior. It is the ninth named storm, fourth hurricane, and second major hurricane of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.[4][5][6] Under favorable conditions, Irma rapidly intensified shortly after formation, becoming a Category 2 hurricane a mere 24 hours after it first formed. It became a major hurricane when it became a Category 3 hurricane shortly after; however, the intensity began fluctuating for the next several days due to a series of eyewall replacement cycles. On September 5, Irma became a Category 5 hurricane with 185 mph (295 km/h) winds and a minimum pressure of 916 mbar (916 hPa; 27.0 inHg). This ties it as the second-strongest Atlantic hurricane by wind speed, surpassed only by Allen of 1980. Irma is also the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin outside the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico, and the strongest tropical cyclone worldwide in 2017 so far.Hurricane Irma Hurricane Irma 5 Current storm status Category 5 hurricane (1-min mean) Irma Geostationary VIS-IR 2017.png Satellite image 11L 2017 5day.png Forecast map As of: 8:00 a.m. AST (12:00 UTC) September 5 Location: 16.6°N 57.0°W ± 10 nm About 360 mi (575 km) E of the Leeward Islands Sustained winds: 150 kn (175 mph; 280 km/h) (1-min mean) gusting to 180 kn (205 mph; 335 km/h) Pressure: 929 mbar (hPa; 27.44 inHg) Movement: W at 12 kn (14 mph; 22 km/h) See more detailed information.

Oh yeah! It has begun! This is Day 1 of a year long adventure to all 59 US National Parks. And yes, it does take a whole day to get to the US Virgin Islands. It involves flight/s, taxis and ferries, especially if your final destination is St. John, like us. Watch this video to see our experience getting there. Long planning and discussion and prepping lead to this point of us finally starting this adventure. We owe it to many friends and family who helped us get here. In this video, Our friend Hawk took us to the airport and we showed how long it takes to fly from continental U.S. to the Virgin Islands. . Clue: it takes a whole day. We are amazed on how friendly and sincere the people are. It was also different experience to be greeted with free rum samples at the airport even before you claim your luggage. HAHA! That was awesome. After a full day of flying, I needed that. We basically flew from Houston (using Delta airlines), then stopped in Atlanta (their hub) and then flew to Charlotte Amalie airport in St. Thomas. Luckily, a friend picked us up from airport, so we can stay overnight at their house. Ordinarily, you would take a cab from the Charlotte Amalie airport to Red Hook (the ferry station in St. Thomas), take the ferry to Cruz Bay on the st. John island and then take a cab or rent a car to get to your hotel/campground. As you can see, this whole process takes a whole day. We are saying this, so that when planning for your trip, you allot enough time for a full day of traveling. Some people don't realize that it takes a whole day to get there. I also shared about cistern water system and showed how scary the roads are at night. Dark, hilly and narrow. If you aren't familiar of where you are going, it might not be a good idea to drive at night as there are many dangerous cliffs. My friend's house was up the hill. However, it was very beautiful. I love their balcony overlooking St. John! Breathtaking! Also, you should note that they drive on the left side of the road. Very important to note especially if you are renting a car. WHO ARE WE? We, Irwin and Victorina, have decided to quit our jobs, sell everything we have and go on an epic road trip of visiting all U.S. National Parks! Follow our journey - from letting go of our material possessions, preparing for the extended camping trip, and even the mistakes, joys, doubts and adventures we make along the way! We hope to inspire others to appreciate the beauty of Planet Earth. Adventure begins in Feb 2017. We estimate this road trip will take us approximately 12 to 16 months. We know we will some amazing places and meet a lot of interesting people. If you have an idea or suggestions for us for places to visit along the way, feel free to contact us! NEW VIDEOS every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. If we miss a day, it is probably because we had no phone signal inside the park or we couldn't find any wifi access. If this is the case, we will upload our video as soon as we get any phone signal. WHERE HAVE WE BEEN FEATURED?

Welcome to another Cycle Scenery indoor exercise bike workout video! To learn more about Cycle Scenery, please visit http://CycleScenery.com. Cycle Scenery has been created to provide cyclists with cycling videos for their indoor exercise bikes. The videos feature high-definition cycling footage. As the terrain and/or speed changes, the riders know to pedal faster, pedal slower and/or increase resistance. I created these videos to use for my own indoor exercise bike workouts and decided to share with the world! The best part about this system is that it is bring-your-own-bike. Whether it's an inexpensive spin bike or a road or mountain bike attached to a trainer, all will work the same. The only requirements are a television or tablet in front of the exercise bike that is capable of streaming YouTube videos. Thanks for watching and please subscribe to Cycle Scenery (http://youtube.com/CycleScenery) to be alerted as new cycling videos are uploaded. Please Cycle Scenery with others! I strongly believe that it should function as an entertaining and motivational tool for all cyclists! Contain royalty-free music from YouTube Creation Tools Audio Library and royalty-free music that I created within Apple Garageband.
