Caught in New York City

I can give you a “touristy view” of the city, but… what fun is that?!
See everything New York City offers while enjoying the exhilaration of riding the waves! New York Harbor Jetski is only a short train ride away from the NYC, and you leave to explore Manhattan- from the water- at Pier 13 in Hoboken.

 

Ultimate Bucket List Trip: South Africa

South Africa
If you could take one vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go? South Africa was my family’s top choice.

Because I have written a lot on the topic of once-in-a-lifetime vacations, adventures, and “Bucket List” experiences, I’ve been blessed to be able to visit some of the most interesting places in the world, from Ibiza to Dublin to skydiving and skiing in the Swiss Alps, and thinking about all of the places I’ve been, I realize how hard it is to top South Africa.

The main reason people tend to go on vacation to Africa is to go on safaris and see all the wild animals the massive content offers. But, South Africa offers far more to see and do than “just” safaris. In South Africa, you really can have it all – and with the favorable exchange rate and cost of living, it is a bargain, especially for food, drinks, and shopping! What was even better than all of this? The impeccable service. We stayed at the 12 Apostles Hotel and Spa during our time in Cape Town, and were treated like nothing less than royalty.

While the quality of wildlife might be equaled in other places, the quality of the experience is not: South Africa has by far the best collection of luxury safari lodges. We stayed at the private game reserve of Kapama Karula. We had our own personal waiter for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as our own game ranger and tracker for all 5 days!

Going to Africa was most definitely the best experience – and trip, I’ve ever had. There are not enough words to explain how incredible our two weeks in South Africa were, but here’s a recap video of our trip that could give you just a little glimpse. As well as the day by day itinerary we had!

COACHELLA 2016

COACHELLAWhat do you get when you put hundreds of thousands of people clad in a mixture of boho chic and hipster attire in a desert over a two-weekend span to party to all types of music?

You get one of the most popular festivals in the world—COACHELLA!

This year was my first time going to Coachella. Although, I’d heard about how amazing the experience is, I had no real expectations when I first arrived in the desert. The less expectations the better, right? Well… it was even more than I could have imagined!
