Somewhere Over The Rainbow…

That somewhere can be anywhere, but if you really want to see rainbows in the making ? go to Hawaii, our 50th and most recent state in the US. Located in Oceania, being the northernmost island group in Polynesia, the state encompasses nearly the entire volcanic Hawaiian archipelago, with eight main islands I had visited in my teens many moons ago. I was feeling tropical this summer after my Tulum trip and decided to revisit Oahu and the big island Hawaii to perfect my tan! So I hop on the Disney plane with my adventurous friends and off we go to explore those active volcanos, go horseback riding at Jurassic park, and swim in the warm central Pacific ocean at the most beautiful beaches in the world. I feel like a teen again, eating shaved ice and building magic sand castles with the kids like me! Enjoy Hawaii and Aloha! Mahalo:)

Tulum or not Tulum… What Is The Question?

I have heard so many great things about Mexico and its culture, customs and history, but had no great desire to visit anywhere south of the border until two weeks ago – Tulum loomed on my horizon with its warm and mysterious invitation.  And as my friends call me  “Dora the Explorer”, I just could not refuse the possibility of being somewhere new yet again.  So off I flew to the Yucatan, specifically Quintana Roo, the coastal strip covered in jungles and beautiful beaches, with posh boutique hotels and welcoming staff, daily yoga practices and local rituals and amazing ethnic food, not to mention the booming night life amongst Tulum ruins and antiquity.  Pictures speak louder than words, so get charmed and live these magic moments with me… Blessings!
