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.

Diary of a professional eater: Malay Dinner, Bo-Kaap, Cape Town

My time in the bush came to an end but the adventure continued.  We flew Federal Air back to Johannesburg and connect to the most beautiful city I’ve visited, Cape Town.  The bush was a great experience but I was excited to finally make it to the mother city.  I’m a Pisces and I carry a natural affinity to cities that touch a body of water.
