Bushkill Falls!

Last Summer, I went on an adventure to Bushkill Falls! That day has come to be one of my most memorable day adventures to date.
Set high in the Pocono Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Bushkill Falls has to be one of the most magical places I have been too. From the moment I arrived, I was in love, with all the majestic scenery that was surrounding me. It was as though I escaped into a fantasy world complete with fairies, pixies, hobbits and unicorns. A Labrynth of magic. I felt like a wizard, an archaeologist, and a naturalist!
When you enter the world of Bushkill Falls, you will be able to see all the magic I did, if you allow yourself to believe.

Went to Cafe Archetypus, Check it out!

This place is just incredible! I was here several years ago and in returning yesterday, I noticed, that they improved even more. I can't say enough about how great this place is. When you are there, you just escape into another world, like nothing outside there exist. A place filled with mythology and much more history. Where you can relax by the candle light and feel as though you went on vacation to the Greek Isles, or a hidden cave, made just for you!
There are no bright lights anywhere, just candle light. The place is made to reflect old Mythology. The more you look around, the more you explore and find. You have to go and experience this hidden treasure. I know I'll be going back for more. The best part is they are open 7days a week.
11am-12 midnight No credit cards accepted, we do however have an ATM on premises
Cafe Archetypus is located at 266 River Rd., Edgewater, NJ 07020 ! Visit their website at:

PhAnTom oF ThE OpEra! LiSa'S MoViE ReVieW!

I had always wanted to see Phantom of the Opera, then, a few years ago; I had the opportunity to see the Phantom on Broadway, Which was a night filled with much excitement!
From the beginning to end, I was mesmerized, I couldn’t take my eyes off the stage, between the stage sets, the costumes and the music, I was just amazed, at how much one play could allow you to escape right into the performance.
After going to see such an incredible show, I found out that the production of Phantom was coming to the movies. Unfortunately, I never had the chance to view this in the theater; however, I was able to watch the movie. Although the movie doesn’t give you the excitement you get at the Broadway performance, it still fills you with love and emotion all over again! All the feelings of romance were there, to know how strong one can love and what they are willing to do to find it and keep it.

Monhegan Island, Maine! A Beautiful Art Colony w/Many Surprises

Monhegan Island, Maine! On the warm summer day, When The Sun has made its perfect place in the sky, a cool breeze, can be felt, followed by an intoxicating smell of wild flowers, that sends you into a Mid Summer's Dream. Invision a place where every nook and cranny has an artful surprise and a garden of delight. Where rocky cliffs lead down to a vintage shipwreck and beautiful harbor seals, just in walking reach. A place, any mermaid would be content swimming and treasure seeking in private water inlets. There is such a place, Monhegan Island, which is just a short ferry ride from Ports Clyde, Maine.
If You are an art or nature fan, or who just wants to explore, please visit Monhegan Island, and you won't be disappointed. You can tour and explore the Island in a short time, But please do not pick the flowers or harm the terrain! While there, take a walk by the Wyeth House and stop in the one of many adorable boutiques and gorgeous art galleries. Just don't forget to hike to the Village Overlook or the Lighthouse.
I recommend taking this wonderful trip during the Lobster Fest, in Rockland, in August and staying at The Berry Manor, in Rockland, Which is one of the best bed and breakfasts, I've ever stayed in. They even leave fresh baked desserts, tea and coffee in the kitchen for your eating pleasure, along w/sweet treats served on victorian dish, left on your bed, with the sounds of classical music, beaming throughout! Lisa!

GeoCaching, New Adventures in Treasure seeking

OldE VinTagE AfRiCaN TreAsUrE MaP 1535 was created to promote the new sport of Geocaching, better known as treasure hunting! It was created/designed/programmed by Jeremy Irish, with the help of Elias Alvord and Bryan Roth!
What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is a thrilling adventure game, where the basic idea is to have people (would be tresure thrillers/archaeologist buffs) set up caches all over the world. Then share the locations of these caches on the internet. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches( Like Reading an ancient treaure hunt, remember the Goonies). Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. All the visitor is asked to do is if they get something they should try to leave something for the cache.

The word GEOCACHING: broken down is GEO for geography, and CACHING for the process of hiding a cache. A cache in computer terms is information usually stored in memory to make it faster to retrieve, but the term is also used in hiking/camping as a hiding place for concealing and preserving provisions.

However, you will need a GPS Unit! GPS Units can range from $100 to $1000 depending on the kind of capabilities you are looking for. The author uses a Garmin eTrex , which runs for around $100, and can get you to within 20 feet of any geocache (depending on the location). The next step is one with a built-in electronic compass, has topographic maps, more memory, etc.

Geocaching Rules:
1. Take something from the cache
2. Leave something in the cache
3. Write about it in the logbook

In Conclusion, GeoCaching is a new sport, not limited to the US, The Geocaching Phenomenon is now all over the world. It is perfect for the Treasure/Adventure Seeker and Archaeologist Buff! Or for Anyone who loves to try something new! Please visit the Geocaching website at Or scroll down to my adventure links at the end of the left column!
