Adventures in St. Thomas - Odenza staff blog

As we arrived to the port of St. Thomas, we watched as our ship pulled to the dock, it was surrounded by boats and yachts. We got off the ship and headed towards the stores and gift shops. We took a taxi van to Coki beach- which was considered one of the best beaches on the island. When we arrived to the beach we were greeted by their friendly staff and introduced themselves as our personal food and beverage server. We spent most of the day swimming in the crystal blue waters and laying on the white sands. We saw some fish and swam out to the ocean. They offered beach chair and umbrella rentals to those who didn’t bring anything. There you were able to snorkel, jet ski, and ride the banana boat. A local was cutting up some fresh coconuts for visitors and there were also some selling bags. That evening we watched some great singing and dancing Caribbean performances then to an adults only comedy show featuring Larry Omaha who started the crowd off with some inappropriate and funny jokes. But we liked it! Lol

First day in Puerto Rico – Odenza staff blog

First day in Puerto Rico - Odenza staff blog

Hi guys ! Our first day in Puerto Rico was definitely very enjoyable ! We mainly stayed around the condado district in which you’ll find where most beach front hotels / restaurants are located. Weather was very great, a good 35 degrees sunny weather all day long except for the part when we were taking a stroll along the beach and it started pouring rain for a good 30 minutes. Should have skipped the shower! Everyone we’ve come in contact with are super friendly. The food here just makes you want to hibernate and eat all day long. Waiters and waitresses are super attentive and always made the best food and beverage recommendations. So far we are loving Puerto Rico. Our last stop was at the oceano restaurant which is an oceanfront mansion that was made into a restaurant. Excited for our cruise !

Painted Hills, John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Oregon, USA

Painted Hills is named after the colorful layers of its hills corresponding to various geological eras, formed when the area was an ancient river floodplain. An abundance of fossil remains of early horses, camels, and rhinoceroses in the Painted Hills unit makes the area particularly important to vertebrate paleontologists.
