Jurassic Park ATV in Kauai

Have you guys seen the movie "Mike and Dave need Wedding Dates"? ... Ok well, how about I tell you thats the whole reason why we even came to Hawaii in the first place. Sad, but true! Actually not sad, its amazing because we had an awesome time!

So you know the part where the go ATVing in Hawaii where they filmed Jurassic Park? I was watching the movie with my husband and when that scene came on I looked at him and said "OMG! We have to go to Hawaii and ride ATVs where they filmed Jurassic Park!!"

And I wasn't joking! Because a couple weeks after that we were packing our bags and heading to the airport because Norwegian Cruise Line partnered with us to make all my dreams come true (aka go to Hawaii and ride ATVs where they filmed Jurassic Park!!). 

My husband couldn't believe it. One minute we were watching a movie (which by the way I totally recommend because its THAT funny), and then the next minute we were landing in Hawaii catching a taxi to Norwegian Cruise Line dock to hop on and start exploring Hawaii. 

The cruise took us Island hoping to a few different islands and the last one was Kauai, the famous Jurassic Park / Indiana Jones Kauai! So I was on a mission to find that ATV tour and have the time of my life! 

Thanks to the oh so amazing Kipu Ranch Adventures they made it all come true! When we got to Kauai they had a representative waiting for us at the dock with a fancy car and he drove us to the farm where they were patiently waiting for us with a super cool (you guessed it) ATV, and a super cool tour guide!

I love adventure and speed so this was perfect for me. Also, I actually love the movie Jurassic Park so being in the fields and recognizing different parts of the movie where the dinosaurs come running and stampeding was so wonderful!

I loved every minute of it, and so did my husband. It was totally worth it! Oh, and check it out! Thats the swing from Indiana Jones!

Dubai ATV Adventures

As you may or may not know, I lived in Dubai for just over 2 years. These were easily some of the best years of my life so far. 

Every day was an adventure and I never could get used to the fact that I actually lived there. Every day I would wake up and just look out the window and say to myself "wow". It was almost like I was dreaming the whole time. 

I don't know what it is about Dubai that I loved so much. Theres just something about it though, that will always hold a special place in my soul. 

From the people, to the food, to the adventures, every day was a blast!

One of my favourite things to do in Dubai was to visit the desert. When we first moved to Dubai we did the typical Desert Tours that tourist do. But being that we lived there for so long, we couldn't keep living the tourist life, we had to live and truly experience the local life.

Some of our friends called us up one day and asked if we wanted to rent some ATV's and take them out in the desert. Of course we agreed, because I always love a good adventure, and so we packed our stuff, prepared some lunch and headed to the desert.

We all met up literally in the middle of no where.. I am still unsure as to how the GPS knew where to take us, but my husband was driving so I guess I will never know (lol). 

Our friends brought some meat to bbq, and ordered some ATV's to be delivered in the middle of nowhere. It was one of the best times of my life. But then again, I guess I say that about everything... but it really was! My sister and best friend were in town too at the time visiting me from Canada so it was the perfect adventure for all of us to experience together. 

After spending the day on the ATVs, getting sand in our hair, jumping off of dunes, crashing, and having fun, we set up the fire (the guys did) and BBQd the meat they brought once it got dark and the stars were out. 

Theres no better feeling then being with the people you love, and experiencing a moment that you cannot get anywhere else.
