Living Pura Vida at the Palms Residence club

Traveling around the Costa Rica the term “Pura Vida” is thrown around with the frequency of a broken record but the discover of its meaning escalates with every minute.  The moment I passed thru gates of the Palms Residence Club I knew I reached the pinnacle of Pura Vida.

South Africa Safari // Kruger Park // Singita

I’m truly excited to share my South Africa safari webisode with you.  Since I was a child I dreamed of going on safari and seeing wildlife in its natural habitat.  This experience was truly a dream come true!  I spotted the big 5 game: African elephant, rhino, cape buffalo, leopard and lion.

Safari game drives are more fun on foot

Over the course of four game drives I was able to see the big five in one day and the rest of the wildlife in Kruger Park.  During our game drives I spotted zebras, impalas, wildebeests, giraffes, hippos, wart hogs, baboons, spiders, crocodile, tortoise and beautiful flora.

Temecula Valley wine tasting for my birthday!

Today was my birthday and my girlfriend kidnapped and surprised me with a wine tasting tour at the World of Wine (WoW) barrel tasting in Temecula Valley.  The Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association’s two-day event features 34 participating vineyards sampling their best wines with food pairings.  My girlfriend had foresight to find a company that offered a shuttle to drive us to nine of the vineyards on March 4.
